Abstract in English:

Welcome to an emerging world of work—The Fifth Age—defined by the rise of cloud-based technology, the growing ranks of freelancers and telecommuters, and the decentralization and de-localization of work. Drawing on these trends, professor and management consultant Andrew M. Jones shows businesses and corporations how to build smarter and more innovative organizations by redesigning the workplace on three fronts: talent, workspace, and license. The Fifth Age of Work is a primer for business leaders and managers, exploring: ▪ Trends on the emerging “human cloud” driven by a thriving artisan/freelance economy, the coworking movement, and the rapid rise in flex work programs and telecommuting. ▪ Solutions for companies in the areas of talent management, workspace design, and workplace license—the prisms through which organizations can re-think old business paradigms
