g-f(2)84 THE BIG PICTURE OF THE DIGITAL AGE, MIT SMR, A new operating system for work: Deconstructing jobs into tasks.

Extra-condensed knowledge

Leaders need a new operating system for work — one that better supports the high degree of organizational agility required to thrive amid increasingly rapid change and disruption, and that better reflects the fluidity of modern work and working arrangements.
  • In our last two books, we’ve argued that this new system must enable leaders and workers to increasingly — and continually — deconstruct jobs into more granular units such as tasks, and that it must identify and deploy workers based on their skills and capabilities, not their job descriptions. 
  • Deconstructing work is essential to implementing new options for sourcing, rewarding, and engaging workers, and to understanding and anticipating how automation might replace, augment, or reinvent human work.
  • Now is the time to adopt the new work operating system where you most need agility, and to develop the organizational systems required to support the new operating system and apply it where it is most pivotal today. 
  • You will be prepared as other areas of work inevitably evolve toward this new operating system of “work without jobs.”
