Automation, artificial intelligence, and other disruptive technologies are changing the fundamental nature and characteristics of work. This tidal wave of change is being referred to as the "future of work." The purpose of this course is to help students understand these shifts to make them become better managers, entrepreneurs and strategist. Specifically, it will enable students to: 1) identify and understand the technological drivers that are changing the nature of work; 2) assess the industry implications of such changes; 3 examine how these larger changes are affecting how we organize and strategize; 4) understand the challenges of implementing new approaches to work; and 5) assess the ways in which individuals can adapt to the new work environment.
