What does future work look like?
We have identified 10 themes that deserve further attention, discussion, and writing.
We will focus on 2 themes per post.
Each of these themes forces us to think more deeply about our practice, the skills that we need, who can teach us these skills, and what impact we expect to have on each of these themes in our roles in projects @ work.
Theme 1 - Avoid silos, which prevent greatness
Silos create roadblocks that deter deep conversations and cross-disciplinary collaboration. The silos and other divisions that exist in business prevent the people on projects from delivering their best work.

Theme 2 - Work in parallel streams
Constraints exist in businesses that stop them from being able to innovate as much as their staff and customers would like. This is the unfortunate reality. Some leaders who talk about innovation don’t create creative environments in which product teams can try out new ideas.
However, small teams working in parallel streams can try out new ideas and platforms without disrupting existing businesses. Create sandboxes in which people working on innovation projects can play.
