How will work be organised in the future? This book challenges many popular myths that limit how we think about the future of work. With its global perspective and critical approach, Re-Thinking the Future of Work provides not only an overview and examination of the array of competing visions, but also a radical rethink about the direction of change. The result is to transcend the conventional narratives and open up the future of work to new possibilities.
