The Internet Weather: Balancing Continuous Change and Constant Truths (0471269344) cover image
A provocative and compelling way to look at the future world of work
What will work be like in the future? Futurists often try to answer this question by looking at how the Internet and technology have changed our lives, but in The Internet Weather, James Moore asserts it's far more useful-and even essential-to view the future by examining those things that don't change: the human desire for time, privacy, trust, and truth. Understanding this, Moore says, can help managers change the way they manage, and, in doing so, retain employees and improve their businesses. In this riveting book, Moore shares insights gleaned from his consulting career and imparts advice he has given clients to help them change their behavior and improve business and personal performance. He also questions assumptions about the New Economy and offers predictions about the future of work to help managers see where to focus their energy and attention.
