  • Mobility & The Future Workplace The Traditional Office” Used To Be An Essential Part of The Business Productivity Equation. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 4
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace All the clever little me’s would commute to a central location, in the belief that we would be more efficient if we were all in one place. We would be centrally managed by a hierarchy of managers, directors, senior vice presidents and presidents, and we would spend our entire working lives aspiring to climbing that ladder….thus becoming loyal devoted workers….. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 5
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace In other words… …work was a place I went to.! This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 6
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace But today, we can now work... ...anytime ...anyplace …...anywhere. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 7
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Our newfound mobility means the way we are working is changing. Which means the traditional office is undergoing a transformation. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 8
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Many regard the use of offices as inefficient, costly and environmentally unfriendly, and companies are starting to reduce their office space in a bid to encourage “locationindependent” working. The best bit is she can do it without ever being in an office. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 9
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Global clusters of individuals are slowly replacing companies as a way of getting work done – project by project, in the new gig economy. And major innovations are no longer the realm of corporate R&D departments. Today, a 16 year-old armed with a laptop and a summer break can churn out the next major innovation. The best bit is she can do it without being in an office. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 10
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Going Out Of Fashion... ... is traditional office space, which seems to be getting emptier all the time. And the once highly sought after private members clubs and serviced offices as a traditional way of meeting and doing business is suddenly considered stuffy and outdated. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 11
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace And Coming Into Fashion... ...is the increasing use of co-sharing spaces and popular third places like Starbucks….. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 12
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace ? Educational Series. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” But what is causing this radical shift in the way we are working, and what will our working environment start to look like over the next decade? 13
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace This is the story of how 5 profound forces are reshaping the traditional office as we know it and shows how a new working environment, the global worksphere, will start to emerge. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 14
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace The 5 forces shaping our future work environment CHANGING DEMOGRAPHICS CHANGING AITITUDES This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” GLOBALIZATION 3.0 TECHNOLOGY IDLE CAPACITY 15
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace The First Factor CHANGING DEMOGRAPHICS “From All-Out Competition to Collaboration”” This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 16
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Changing Demographics For the two decades, workplace culture was driven by the The more “stuff” you possessed, the more status you had. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 17
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Changing Demographics The mantra in the Age of Stuff was: This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 18
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Changing Demographics And our working life was structured around this command and control culture…. We drove to a central location (office), were centrally managed (boss), sat in a silo (cubicle), and received orders from above (management). This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 19
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Changing Demographics Not surprisingly, this was the age of the Cold War We worked in silos (cubicles) Commuted in silos (cars and trains) And waged war in almost arms-race style against the competition…. Success was all about competition – at all costs. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 20
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Changing Demographics But the future workplace will be designed around “we”, and no longer around “me”. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 21
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Changing Demographics By 2020, there will be 5 generations in the workplace. And 50% of the workforce will be made up of the Millenials, (born between the early 80s and 2000s), otherwise known as Generation “We” The Global Generation The Net Generation This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 22
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Changing Demographics This is a generation weaned on technology, global thinking, collaboration and sharing. The Millenials are the first truly globally connected generation. For the Millenials, careers are a series of short-term “gigs”, and work is mobile…. They have no intention of spending their entire working life travelling to the same office……or doing business in stuffy old private members clubs. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 23
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Changing Demographics Woman Power Is On The Rise Women not only make up more than half the working population. More & more women are getting to the top of organizations. This is having an increasing impact on workplace values as mens dominance in the workforce begins to wane… This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 24
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Changing Demographics And cities are getting clogged up... By 2050, the world’s population will rise to 9 billion. 6.5 billion will be urban dwellers. Energy costs will rise and the traditional commute and physical meetings will be unsustainable. Sustainability, environmental advocacy and corporate responsibility will become more serious issues. So people are commuting less. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 25
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace The Second Factor TECHNOLOGY “From Central Workspaces to Global Mobility" This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 26
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Technology In the days of “stuff” – offices were crammed with stuff (computers, filing cabinets, printers, servers..). Now, cloud computing and mobile technology has made all that stuff disappear. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 27
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Technology Remove all that “stuff” from the office and the only real purpose of the office is for people to meet…. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 28
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Technology But technology and the cloud has reduced the world to a size XXS, where 5 billion people on the planet are connected, and where we can compete and collaborate virtually. People simply don't need to be in the office to meet! This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 29
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Technology This level of connectivity and collective intelligence is creating wise crowds, bringing the best ideas in the world together... This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 30
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Technology So now we can work and collaborate virtually anytime, anyplace, anywhere without ever needing to be in the same office! This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 31
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace The Third Factor GLOBALIZATION From Hierarchy to Gig! This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 32
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Globalization In the days before globalization, countries competed against each other. Simply being “French”, “British” or “Spanish” carried status. Back then, the world was a SIZE L. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 33
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Globalization Then companies started to compete with each other around the world. Working for a large corporate such as an “IBM”, a “Shell”, or a “GE” carried status. And the world shrank a little to become a SIZE M. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 34
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Globalization But today… In the hyperconnected global gig economy, competition for jobs is global. It is our status as individuals that counts. For now we are living in a world that is super size small XXS. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 35
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Globalization Global work is being re-configured, and distributed to lower cost centers across multiple time zones, and even across different organizations. Individual vendors and contractors are suddenly available for work across the planet, and online. That means business must be flatter, leaner, and more virtual, in order to survive. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 36
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Globalization Companies are becoming virtual, employing contractors, entrepreneurs and free-agents, for the life of a project. Each project resembles a movie-production team. Individuals come together for the life of the project, then disband on completion. We can now order people online in the same way we can order books. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 37
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Globalization Gigs are virtual, and on-demand. This gig economy means long-term jobs are a thing of the past. Careers are now boundaryless – and the virtual professional is responsible for her own career. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 38
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Globalization In this gig work world, each of us is competing, as individuals with a more global, mobile and entrepreneurial mindset. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 39
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Globalization And globally, individuals are being drawn to industry clusters that are sometimes even replacing companies. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 40
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace The Fourth Factor CHANGING ATTITUDES From Silos to Collaboration This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 41
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Changing Attitudes Increasing job insecurity As the demographic balance shifts, workers question why they have been sacrificing so much with long hours and unbalanced lives. And many employees are disillusioned with one corporate scandal after another. Disappearance of life savings Work-life imbalance A 24-hour news cycle that illustrates how it is everywhere else Long commutes This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 42
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Changing Attitudes The growing scarcity of strategic resources such as water, minerals and fossil fuels as well as political instability in the Arab region is causing the cost of energy and fuel to rise. Spurred on by the rise of women and the Millenial generation in the workforce, there is an increasing focus on sustainable, ethical and transparent business practices. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 43
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Changing Attitudes This has led to a desire for greater leadership transparency and ethics ...as well as a commitment to social and environmental responsibility ...a healthier work/life balance ...and a return to the trust economy. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 44
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Changing Attitudes As the old command-and-control system fades… ... a new, rapid, transparent, collaborative decisionmaking style emerges. One that practices a coordination-andcommunication leadership style. And includes values that center on community, connection and belonging. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 45
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace The Fifth Factor IDLING CAPACITY From Waste to Collaborative Consumption This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 46
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Collaborative Consumption Almost half of US households own a power drill. Yet, it is estimated that each power drill is used somewhere between 6 and 13 minutes in its entire lifetime….. So the un-used potential of all those power drills is called idling capacity….. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 47
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Collaborative Consumption In similar fashion, idling capacity is everywhere in the world of work. Changing attitudes brought about by the entry of the Millenial generation into the workforce means waste is slowly becoming a thing of the past. Not only are we working collaboratively, but we're also working to consume collaboratively. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 48
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Collaborative Consumption And here are just some of the companies that excel at the new model of collaborative consumption PEER TO PEER RENTAL The Hire Hub Ecomodo Erento PEER TO PEER MARKETPLACES Tradepal Fiverr FILM RENTAL Netflix This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” CAR SHARING ZipCar Car2Go Modo MARKETPLACES Craig’s List Ebay PEER TO PEER TRAVEL Couchsurfing AirBnB Onefinestay SOCIAL LENDING Zopa PEER TO PEER EXPERIENCES GuideHop CROWDFUNDING Kickstarter Quora 49
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Collaborative Consumption Hub Culture The Hub This explains the trend towards outsourcing office space and encouraging the use of shared workplaces…... Plug & Play Network This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” au Le Bure Regus 50
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace Collaborative Consumption The future of work is about inevitable change, requiring new practices in the way companies and individuals are operating. We are all embracing this new world of work. However, workplace environments are still slow to respond to the new challenges. Co-sharing spaces have passed the early adopter phase, but there is still a long way to go before we create a genuine global working environment that embraces this brave new world of work. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 51
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace ? Educational Series. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” What Will be The Impact of The 5 Forces?? 52
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace The traditional is “office” is certainly not dead, as many predict. However, the 5 forces will have a major impact on how the office is used in the years to come, and we will witness a radical transformation of our physical working environment towards something far more global, temporary, inclusive, accessible and community-driven. This paper is part of the “One City Think Series” 53
  • Mobility & The Future Workplace In today’s hyperconnected gig economy, we no longer work in one office all the time, but in many different locations, and then only occasionally. Local co-sharing spaces have already passed the early adopter phase, and a new working environment will soon emerge – the modern global worksphere.
