PlanDo Emerging Trends June 2015

  1. 1. The world of work and emerging trends. Love your work. Love your life. June 2015
  2. 2. In this pack we share our insights on emerging work trends which underpin why we built PlanDo.
  3. 3. Social and Technological Change Social, technology
  4. 4. The 4 ages of organised production or the story of work. Agrarian Age (10,000 years) – agricultural (subsistence) labour performed by individuals and small collectives Industrial Age (200 years) – mechanisation and manufacturing •  hierarchical management models, command and control structures (borrowed from church and state) •  unskilled labour perform repetitive tasks to achieve predictable outcomes •  homogenous workforce – staff Information Age (50 years) – digital information •  knowledge based work •  skilled labour – employees Networked Intelligence Age – social connectivity and collaboration •  dynamic, complex workplaces •  managers become leaders •  cloud, social, mobile, big data technologies •  rise of the individual – markets of 1, single units of production •  flexible labour market – consumers

  6. 6. 3 big forces set the future of work trajectory. •  Social •  Economic       •  Technology
  7. 7. The social co-ordinate. The rise of the individual. •  Global labour market impacts – urbanisation, better education, better connectivity, better resources •  Millennials are the largest generation in the workforce in 2015 – KPCB, 2015 •  Inequality of labour cost •  Workplace participation is higher than ever (4 generations at work at the same time for the first time •  Employees expect greater flexibility – geographic mobility, part-time, full-time, opting in and out of the workplace over a working life •  Individuals are better educated than ever before •  Average tenure of 30 year old high potential employees is 28 months – HBR, Sept 2012 •  Purpose, values and vision increasingly drive employment choices •  For graduates today, 50% of roles that will evolve during a working life don’t exist yet •  Careers are no longer linear – you can expect to have 3-4 careers across your working life
  8. 8. One third baby boomers out. One third millennials in.
  9. 9. Millennials and Gen X viewed from the perspective of managers.
  10. 10. The economic co-ordinate. Pressure on enterprise to adapt. •  Casualization is on the rise. McKinsey (2012) found that 60% of the CEOs surveyed expected to increase their contingent workforce by at least 20% in the next 5 years. Currently, 20% of the Fortune 500 workforce are contingent workers; 40-50% by 2020 – IDC, May 2014 •  Organisation structures are flatter – the permafrost of middle management squeezed out •  Organisation’s strategy are more agile, adaptive and client centric – Heifetz, 2009 •  Accountability, goal setting devolved to the individual for better results •  Career paths have collapsed – BRW, August 2014 •  The psychological contract for work has changed – Reid Hoffman, ‘The Alliance’, 2014 •  45% of young professionals would trade salary for flexibility, that includes on demand work •  75% employees want to work remotely, either full time or part time
  11. 11. Casualisation is on the rise. Millennials are the largest cohort of on demand workers growing by x2 Y/Y.
  12. 12. The technology co-ordinate. The rise of the consumer. •  ‘3rd platform’ (IDC 2014) – describes the evolution of technology from mainframes, then LAN to cloud based, social, mobile, big data •  The ‘nexus of forces’ (Gartner, 2014) – describes the convergence of these technology megatrends •  Market disruption through lower barriers to entry – lower capital requirements •  Personal cloud is leading to BYOD (device), now BYOA (app) – Skype, Evernote, LinkedIn, DropBox – IDC, May 2014 •  ‘Shadow IT’ (non employer sanctioned IT) accounted for 17% of all IT budget expenditure – IDC, May 2014 •  Gamification drives ‘the quantified self’ and viral adoption
  13. 13. Millennials want flexibility and technology at work.
  14. 14. Karl Marx believed technology determines social interaction and organisation structure.
  15. 15. The psychological contract for work has changed. “The employer employee relationship is broken. Managers face a seemingly impossible dilemna: you can’t afford to offer lifetime employment. But you can’t building a lasting, innovative business when everyone acts as a free agent.” – Reid Hoffman, Co-author, The Alliance, 2014
  16. 16. Here’s the further complication. •  We are using old models of organisation design and structure, old models of leadership and management to ‘manage’ an entirely new type of work. •  We want conversations that rely on mutual respect – adult to adult to create mutual and sustainable success. We can no longer expect to ‘manage’ through command and control. We can take a new mindset that says ‘I ‘manage’ projects and ‘lead’ people’. •  Management by authority or power has been the last or only resort for poorly equipped organisations and leaders.
  17. 17. Traditional career paths were stable, predictable and linear.
  18. 18. Emerging career paths are not linear.
  19. 19. How this translates into the new world of work. Pain Points Mitigating Strategies Employers More flexibility and control around largest expense – labour è Flexible, contingent workforce Less management structure, overhead and effort è Agility through autonomy and distributed leadership Competitive advantage through agility and capability è Execution through skill, performance and engagement Employees Certainty and control è Self sufficiency Career progression è Ongoing performance and growth Purpose and meaning è Alignment and cultural fit
  20. 20. Leadership is now a mindset for shared success. Contemporary leaders are self directed in what they set out to achieve. They are accountable and responsible for their successes and failures. In the new world of work, accepting those qualities self means accepting them in others – driving respect, accountability, autonomy. 4 key leadership behaviours to build self directed work places, boosting productivity, capability and engagement – •  Listen – we value individuals who are more than their current role •  Invest – take time, provide resources and support necessary for success •  Permit – build trust and rapport, allow individuals to learn and grow •  Let go – get out of the way, enable their success
  21. 21. DNA of shared success.
  22. 22. Social psychology and technology come together. Self determination theory (SDT) (Deci & Ryan) is the most cited academic research in social psychology. The theory describes the importance of autonomy, competence or mastery and meaning. SDT underpins gamification, the use of game thinking and mechanics in non game contexts. Gamification is becoming increasingly important in professional ‘serious games’ design and is driving big data analytics through mapping many things including engagement and achievement. Self determination is popular in progressive organisations where a leader-coach relationship between employees and employers is encouraged. SDT is believed to drive retention and unlocked discretionary effort. Applied SDT has been proven to improve performance and engagement in many workplaces. Most importantly, SDT aligns well with the notion of the rise of the individual and consumer. Meaning  –  finding  purpose  in  what  you   do,  joining  others  who  share  your   purpose  and  passion,  aligned  to  a  bigger   community     Mastery    –  opportuni9es  to  grow  skills,   learn  and  respond  to  changing   environments  –  to  draw  upon  all  your   strengths,  mo9vators,  skills  for  good   effect     Autonomy  –  the  capacity  to  be  self   directed,  to  make  choices  and  take   responsibility  for  your  choices  and   ac9ons,  see  a  posi9ve  future    
  23. 23. It’s time to hand career ownership to career owners. “The biggest mistake that you can make is to believe that you are working for somebody else… The driving force of a career must come from the individual” Earl Nightingale Usefulness – our contribution through work – is key to our sense of identity, agency and lifelong wellness. People who are most satisfied at work are ultimately most productive in work and life. Prof Ian Hickie, Brain Mind Institute, Australia
