RSA Animate – Re-Imagining Work

How can we get people more engaged, more productive, and happier at work? Is technology part of the problem – and could it also be part of the solution? Dave Coplin, Chief Envisioning Officer at Microsoft, imagines what might be possible if more organisations embraced the full, empowering potential of technology and encouraged a truly open, collaborative and flexible working culture. Taken from a talk given by Dave Coplin as part of the RSA’s free public events programme.

    This is definitely me least favorite RSAnimate.

    What kind of jobs is he talking about exactly? Sure, maybe some creative work… but this presentation is just unpractical feel-good nonsense which won’t help most of us. I cant see how waiters, nurses, lawyers, cleaners, service people, technicians, or really ANYBODY in any industry (employers or employees) can get something out of this video.

    The only ones who might benefit from working on the move are creatives like musicians, artists, and those creatives which were never required to work in a certain space with other to begin with.

    Overall this speech was utterly useless nonsense, and I expected much more from RSAnimate who gave us the great “The Truth about What Motivates Us” and “Changing Education Paradigms.”

    That is a very close minded comment. Lawyers could for example work from home in the future (teleconferencing when presenting cases or working with clients). Intellectual work is work of the mind which most of the time could be done at another place than an office. Cleaners, waiters and many of the manual task will eventually be replace with robots. We as a society are transforming and the bounds of the past apply less and less.
