It’s no secret that the world of work as we know it is changing. The current COVID-19 situation has certainly exacerbated problems, but it has also brought opportunity. Opportunity to widely adopt remote work, to stress-test business models, and to find new ways to connect with customers,  clients and employees.

In many ways, shifts like this illustrate a point that we at MBO Partners have been making for more than 20 years: it’s not about the future of work, because the future is already here. It’s about the next way of working, and that next way includes leveraging the independent workforces as a strategic and central asset to your business. Businesses that are nimble and adapt to change will survive, and those that do not will vanish.

Today, we share with you the brainchild of CEO Miles Everson, a look at four forces driving the need for a modern business model.

These four forces are simple shifts that, when seen in aggregate, can and should change the way organizations think. It goes hand in hand with concepts like workforce optimization that we discuss often with our clients.

In the whitepaper, learn about:

  1. How the acceleration of rates of change drives the convergence of innovations impacting the workforces of today and tomorrow,
  2. How deflationary progress can help organizations become more nimble and cost-effective in their use of external talent,
  3. How a move from ‘knowledge stocks’ to ‘knowledge flows’ creates a market with liquidity where buyers and sellers can compete, ultimately creating more value for the people that participate in it, and
  4. How the functionalization of everything — even the human career and workday — can benefit enterprise organizations and independent talent alike.
