Die hilfreichsten Kundenrezensionen auf Amazon.com
A single book could not cover all the ways in which our world is changing. So, the author has been selective in the chosen examples, and also in the perspective, which is that of a western observer. The data are coming from hundred reports and interviews. The book has eight chapters examining the workplace of the future from a variety of angles. What may be the most critical message is conveyed by the title of one of these chapters: "Educate, Educate, Educate." The problem is that today's schools are ill equipped to prepare the students to the world of tomorrow. In principle, the educational technologies developed in the last few years, such as MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) and several others, provide teachers with powerful tools. But the success of these tools is still a subject of debate. For example, more than 50 \% of a large sample of managers would not "recruit a graduate that had only studied online." So, solving the educational quandary is a critical issue.
Education is only one of the facets of tomorrow's world discussed in Mike Johnson's book, albeit maybe the most critical one. Other important questions are: How should one develop a 21st century career plan? What kind of jobs will be available? What will the workplaces of tomorrow look like, and what should organization do to be, or remain, successful? The book should be a must read for any responsible leader, student, or parent of such student.
Here in Silicon Valley, we are fond of this quote from Alan Kay: "The best way to predict the future is to invent it". The future of work is being invented right now, and Mike Johnson takes us on a wild romp through some of the most salient inventions around, from universities with no permanent faculty (the Lorange Institute of Business) to places where talent migrates, for instance, pharmaceutical talent goes to New England and Switzerland. Along the way there is lots of up-to-the-minute practical advice for the job seeker and recruitment alike (check out Mike's Crane Theory, p. 48). You might think you know all about the change taking place in the world of work, but I guarantee you will come away with an understanding of the future that is now.
