Introduction: 2017 Global Human Capital Trends

Introduction The 2017 Deloitte Global Human Capital Trends report reflects seismic changes in the world of business. This new era, often called the Fourth Industrial Revolution1—or, as we have earlier labeled it, the Big Shift2—has fundamentally transformed business, the broader economy, and society. We title this year’s report Rewriting the rules for the digital age because a principal characteristic of the new era is not merely change, but change at an accelerating rate, which creates new rules for business and for HR. Organizations face a radically shifting context for the workforce, the workplace, and the world of work. Introduction: 2017 Global Human Capital Trends. Digitalisierung: Daten essen Seele auf.

Der österreichische Schriftsteller Robert Musil bringt mehrere Tausend Seiten zu Papier, um zu beschreiben, was die Revolution der Technik mit dem Seelenleben der Menschen macht.

Verwandelt sie uns, wie der Titel seines Romans nahelegt, in Männer (und Frauen) "ohne Eigenschaften"? Musils Zeit ist geprägt von einer Revolution, die man die "zweite industrielle Revolution" nennt. The most disruptive phase of globalization is just beginning, according to economist Richard Baldwin — Quartz. To properly understand globalization, you need to start 200,000 years ago.

Richard Baldwin skillfully takes on this daunting task in a new book, starting all the way back with the hunter-gatherers. For too long, he says, traditional analysis of trade has been too narrow, he argues. The economist, who is a professor at the Graduate Institute in Geneva and president of the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) in London, has been researching globalization and trade for 30 years. As anti-globalization forces now sweep across the world, The Great Convergence: Information Technology and the New Globalization (Harvard University Press) is well timed. Baldwin argues that globalization takes shape in three distinct stages: the ability to move goods, then ideas, and finally people. Quartz/Eshe Nelson The standard line from politicians in recent times is that everyone wins from globalization. Amongst economists, a belief in free trade is totemic.

On the other hand, some are quite skeptic about these technologies suggesting that they will be new failures like Google Glass due to UX issues. We believe that these technologies have a huge potential for many industries despite these UX issues. Let’s take a look at how Virtual and Augmented Reality technologies can disrupt some of the major industries. 1. Gaming Gaming is entering a new era in 2016, and the gaming experience is about to change forever with Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). The expectations are huge from Facebook’s $2 billion acquisition Oculus Rift and Sony’s VR Playstation as they have already started to build their own ecosystem and app stores.

While many corporations are betting on VR, Microsoft is betting on AR with Hololens. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Digital Transformation - 2016's hottest buzzword? 10 Hyper Disruptive Business Models. A Total Rethink of How Work Should Work – NewCo Shift. Stephen DeWitt has had the kind of career that used to end with a gold watch, a comfortable retirement, and a slow decline into old age.

A Total Rethink of How Work Should Work – NewCo Shift

He’s held senior positions at HP, Cisco, and Symantec, and took Cobalt Networks through one of the highest flying IPOs of the late 1990s. But instead of retiring, in early 2015 he took the position of CEO at Work Market, a fast-growing platform that is reimagining the relationship between labor and business. Backed by legendary investor Fred Wilson, New York-based Work Market helps large enterprises create “labor clouds” that connect skilled workers with tasks companies need to complete.

The platform integrates all types of workers — contractors, full-time employees, and vendors — and parameterizes tasks and workflows against any number of data points and business rules. Here at NewCo, we’re using Work Market to create a “labor cloud” of writers and editors who are building a new kind of publication that covers the new “platform workforce.”
