Courageous Conversation video: We really need to talk about the future of work

Save for later


Posted by APM on 10th May 2016

The world of work is going through the most dramatic change since the Industrial Revolution, but our working practices are slow to change. What does the future of work look like? What does it mean for project management?

These are just a few of the questions discussed at a Knowledge SIG Courageous Conversation with Peter Thomson in November 2015. A Courageous Conversation is a small meeting to discuss a topic that is misunderstood, controversial, or doesn’t usually get aired. This video is a 10 minute whiteboard animation that encapsulates the views expressed at the meeting using words, metaphor and pictures.

Watch the video to find out what other questions and ideas were discussed. Tell us what you think and share your own thoughts and experiences in the comments. Where do you think the future of organisations lies? Will we all be working on projects? Does the video describe the future of work, or are we there already?
