Jeremy Myerson - Designing Tomorrow’s Networked Workplaces

Research director at the Royal College of Art.

The borders of work communities no longer match those of firms. Office spaces tend to shrink while new, hybrid “third places” and coworking places emerge. For many, the phone and laptop are the true work place, social networks and projects the true work communities, clients and domain experts the true hierarchies… The times are ripe for extended enterprises, temporary organizations, autonomous corporations, shapeless and borderless networks. Do work communities still need organizations? Do firms still need managers or employees? What new agile, lean, learning, open organizations and spaces will we need to invent in order to work in the future?
