Nicky Dries on the theme of future of work – what’s next:
Future of work has been discussed and taken into action, from its many angles. However, the subsequent system we now live with is proving to be less than optimal for humans, employers, societies… in many ways. What to do? What are we not fully understanding yet?
We are building an exciting SparkMap titled “Future of work – what’s next” which deliberates on the world of work and brings together – connecting the dots – the various perspectives surrounding the world of work, the changes and impact, what is changing now, what are examples from around the world, what innovations, what possibilities for improvements, how are humans around the world experiencing the ideas of gig economy, zero hour contracts…
Join us to contribute your knowledge and experiences to this discussion. We are eager to have your thoughts on future of work – what’s next: why this is so important, what impact it could have, the history of it to understand its evolution and more as part of our shared multidisciplinary understanding.
Come and help humanity make sense of and explore the theme of future of work – what’s next.
About Nicky Dries – The Humanothon lead
Nicky Dries is Professor of Organizational Behavior at KU Leuven (department of Work & Organisation Studies) and at BI Norwegian Business School in Oslo (department of Leadership & Organizational Behaviour). In Leuven, she runs the Future of Work Lab within the Faculty of Economics, that studies social imaginaries for the future. Nicky is an industrial/organizational psychologist by training; attached to the Future of Work lab she collaborates with a business economist (Philip Rogiers), a historian (Joost Luyckx), and a cultural studies major (Max Bogaert). Their research builds on methods aimed at triggering people’s imagination about the future, using media analysis, robotic art and design, virtual reality, and science-fiction movies. The mission of the Lab is to re-politicize the future of work, and stimulate democratic debate.
– Re-politicizing the public debate about the future of work
– Democratizing the future of work through citizen science
– Studying the competing interests of actors in this debate
– Advocating for the right to worker resistance against new technologies
– Mapping different social imaginaries about what the future of work should look like
– Historical analysis of disruptive innovations
– Mapping trends related to the Fourth Industrial Revolution
– Studying robots with socio-emotional capabilities, and their developers
– Studying news media and fiction (science fiction movies) about the future of work
– Visualizing future scenarios using speculative design and virtual reality (VR)
– Challenging technologically deterministic discourses and the prediction paradigm
About Dominique Jaurola from Hunome
Dominique understood the challenges corporations (and many other decision makers) had in making sustainable, innovative, world-aware, change-aware and human-aware decisions in the mid 90s. This led her to become a futurist/strategist from her product management role. She was active in building the community as the Association of Professional Futurists founding board member and member. Co-authoring a book on strategic foresight. Bringing the often lone wolf futurist community together in many ways. She had a corporate futurist role at Nokia, building novel methods to understand the world and humans in it for sane product and strategy decisions. She has since been a consulting futurist on and off. Action does not always follow understanding but at least one has to have the proper understanding first. These experiences eventually led to Hunome – the startup – where Dominique is the founder, CEO and CPO.
We want you to join us in this exciting sense-making journey – a humanothon program – to create an understanding on this foundational theme for the sustainability of our societies in world of work turmoil.
Hunome is a new Collective Sensemaking product – a social network with a purpose – uniquely designed to build shared understanding. A SparkMap is a non-linear, evolving and multidimensional map of understanding on a theme, bringing together ways of knowing and many disciplines, breaking silos. SparkMap is a great way to visualize the understanding that a group of people have on a particular theme.
Humanothon is a set of thematic movements run on the Hunome product. You can take leadership on a theme that needs multidimensional understanding and that you want to build a concerted systematic mapping on, with a group. Hunome product is there to use and our team helps the leads set this up providing materials and other help.
You do not need to run a Humanothon to build multidimensional understanding on Hunome. You can also just start by clicking on ‘New SparkMap’ once inside Hunome and craft your own understanding and see others join.
