The Future of Work
Winner of the CMI Management Book of the Year 2011 in the Digital Management Book Category. What the judges said:
‘The Future of Work is a book by an acknowledged master in the field, an author who treads the same path as Charles Handy and Richard Leyard, someone who realises that the nature of our working lives and the satisfaction or otherwise that we gain from them are subjects too important to be left to the writers of dusty textbooks.’
