Office Shock: Creating Better Futures for Working and Living – Bob Johansen, Joseph Press and Christine Bullen, 2023

There’s a lot of noise in the media about the future of the office. But one thing’s clear – a lack of ‘one-size-fits-all’demands that all business leaders...

This is the latest book to be published by the team at the California based Institute for the Future. And it’s very timely indeed.

 

Using 'futureback' thinking, Johansen, Press and Bullen explore a wider spectrum of future ways of working, which of course has profound implications on the future of the office.

 

Leveraging a mix-board methodology approach, they integrate emergent technology, shifting socio-cultural attitudes, next-generation employment models and the likely economic consequences of the climate crisis to encourage the adoption of ‘flexive intent’ – a way of thinking about the future that’s both visionary and adaptive, allowing for pivots as circumstances dictate.

 

There’s a lot of noise in the media about the future of the office. But one thing’s clear – a lack of ‘one-size-fits-all’demands that all business leaders think very differently about their commercial futures. This book introduces a more holistic, systemic approach to thinking about the office, for enhanced business sustainability.
