Corante, which calls itself "the world's first blog media company," recently launched a new blog on the future of work.
Future Tense looks at "how the modern work 'place' is evolving and adapting to new trends, technologies, and economic factors."
The blog is written by various thinkers and practitioners so it's able to incorporate a range of perspectives.
More about it from the Corante homepage:
"Future Tense...will discuss the trends and pressures that are forcing employers to rejigger the way they think about the workplace, manage projects and staffs, encourage collaboration and innovation, support a decentralized workforce, motivate and reward employees, build morale and foster teamwork, design physical spaces to accommodate a mobile and transient workforce, etc.
Future Tense's co-authors: Elizabeth Albrycht, a 15-year veteran of high technology public relations practice and a co-founder and co-producer of the New Communications Forum; Jim Ware, cofounder of the Work Design Collaborative and the Future of Work program; Regina Miller, formerly of Vodafone and founder of the consultancy The Seventh Suite; Jim McGee, a director at Huron Consulting Group, founding partner of DiamondCluster International, and co-author of Managing Information Strategically; and Dave Desforges of Sun Microsystems' 'Work From Home' initiative.
...Among the themes they'll be touching on: gradual retirement, the rise of the free agent, ad hoc team formation, the decline of hierarchical management structure, geographic distribution, the need for a flexible workforce, the need for long term 'employability,' the creative class, urban trends, collaboration technology, project processes, physical design, contract work trends, management challenges, outsourcing, and much more."
