JLA: How will digital change the way we work?
JB: We will increasingly embrace the 'anywhere' economy, a connected business eco-system in which we work where and when we choose. The future is free agent. There are already 4 million in the UK who are neither employers not employees, and this total is set to climb.
JLA: Has recession changed medium and long-term trends?
JB: In general no, but it has pushed back the adoption of new technologies. It's also made companies refine their business model towards a leaner and more responsive framework, with fewer long-term and full-time employees.
JLA: Which old assumptions are already turning out to be false?
JB: The one that said we would soon return to business-as-usual. Instead we're entering a 'new normal' in which the rules of global business and management thinking will need to be re-written. The old gurus with their 'mechanical' theories will be increasingly redundant.
