Change is sweeping across the world, impacting the how, where, why, when and what of work. Individuals are experimenting with freelancing rather than employee models, hierarchies are giving way to organisational networks, work is seeping out of tightly constrained place and time containers into all of life, and the nature of work tasks themselves are morphing.
