The Work Ahead is a research series providing insight and guidance on how business—and jobs—must evolve in an economy of algorithms, automation and AI. With new machines and new business models based on information, the rules of the game are being rewritten.
At the heart of commerce, and our lives, is work—the foundation of modern society—and it has never changed faster. Some companies are going into a tail spin as we move from a world of “atoms” into a world of “bits.”
Winning in the digital economy will require new skills, new tools and a new set of commercial rules. To understand our new game, we studied nearly 800 current (and future) members of the European business community. Now we share with you our roadmap for The Work Ahead in Europe.
Explore key areas of The Work Ahead data about the future of business and your work. We’re sharing this data to encourage dialogue, further investigation and action to build the digital economy.
Digital is the opportunity in front of Europe today and will be for decades to come. Europe’s business and political leaders must seize this once-in-a-generation opportunity to re-engineer and revitalize economic performance. This is Europe’s digital imperative. The stakes could not be higher.
