Don’t Let Returning to the Office Burn Out Your Team

Year: 2021

Summary: There’s a lot of stress about returning to work, and many employees that were already feeling after the last year and a half, and you’ve got a recipe for burnout. If you want to help your team make it through this transition without suffering, there are several things you can do. Remember, the long-term impacts of burnout outweigh the short-term costs of giving workers more time off. 



Working With Robots in a Post-Pandemic World

Author: Matt Beane and Erik Brynjolfsson
Year: 2020

Summary: Plug-and-play automation systems can be rapidly set up to meet sudden surges in demand and quickly reconfigured when needs change. We need to find and learn from those rare successes as quickly as we can so that everyone can adapt more constructively.



AI in the workplace: Paving the way for man-machine collaboration

Author: Clint Boulton
Year: 2018

Summary: Fears of the rise of robots swooping in to steal jobs abound, stoked by the confluence of artificial intelligence, machine learning and other technologies that automate routine tasks traditionally performed by humans. The reality is that job replacement will happen more gradually than the media headlines suggest, and eventually AI will create more jobs than it eliminates.



The Nine Elements of Digital Transformation

Year: 2014

Summary: Digital transformation — the use of technology to radically improve performance or reach of enterprises — is a hot topic for companies across the globe. In-depth research with executives at a wide range of companies shows how managers can use technology to redefine their businesses. 



The New Elements of Digital Transformation

Author: Didier Bonnet and George Westerman
Year: 2021

Summary: The authors revisit their landmark research and address how the competitive advantages offered by digital technology have evolved. Seeing the business from the outside in — from the customers’ perspective — is as relevant and necessary today as it was in the first phase of digital transformation.



The Transformational Power of Recommendation

Author: Michael Schrage
Year: 2021

Summary: The networked nudges and prompts of recommendation engines increasingly influence people’s choices in clothing, entertainment, food, and medicine; they also influence the texts we send, which friends we contact, the customers and prospects we prioritize, the experts we seek, the job candidates we hire, the investments we choose, the memos we edit, and the schedules we follow.



Igniting individual purpose in times of crisis

Author: Naina Dhingra, Jonathan Emmett, Andrew Samo, and Bill Schaninger
Year: 2020

Summary: In these stressful, surreal times, it’s understandable for CEOs to fixate on urgent corporate priorities at the expense of more intangible, personal considerations. How important is getting your people to think about their “purpose in life” right now when you’re worried about their well-being—not to mention corporate survival?
