The world of work is going through an unprecedented revival driven by new technologies. The Digital Renaissance of Work: Delivering Digital Workplaces Fit for the Future will take the reader on a journey into the emerging technology-led revival of work. A unique combination of thought leadership and technical know-how, this book will bring the reader up-to-date with the latest developments in the field, such as: freelancing the organisation/ work but no jobs, localisation/ work but not place, time travel and death of the weekend, trust, privacy and the quantified employee, leadership in the hyper connected organisation, beyond the office/ the mobile frontline, automation and the frontiers of work, as well as setting out how to lay down the roadmap for the digital workplace: the human centred digital workplace, making the business case, setting up the digital workplace programme, technology deployment, measuring the digital workplace. The book will draw on new case studies from major organisations with which Paul Miller is in regular discussion, such as: Accenture - aligning the digital and physical workplaces; Barclays - innovating in a regulated environment; Deutsche Post/ DHL - leading at the mobile frontline; Environment Agency - real time collaboration; IBM - pushing the digital workplace frontiers; IKEA - measuring the digital workplace; SAP - gamifying the enterprise. Paul Millerâs follow up to his critically acclaimed The Digital Workplace picks up the story to provide organisations with an understanding of the structural and organizational implications the emerging technology has for the workplace. His insights, backed by the considerable research of the Digital Workplace Forum, offer a lifeline to organizations needing to make better sense of a very uncertain future.
