There are, conservatively, 300 gazillion books published every year. No one has the time to list them, let alone read them or review them. That’s a problem because there’s a lot of value in many books you may not hear about because of the clutter.
“Short Takes” is my humble effort to cut through the clutter and highlight business books that might be perfect for your next read. Lynda Gratton’s books always introduce me to practical ways to think about important issues. I suspect Redesigning Work: How to Transform Your Organization and Make Hybrid Work for Everyone will do the same thing.
Here’s some of the publicity copy for the book.
Professor Lynda Gratton is the global thought-leader on the future of work. Drawing on thirty years of research into the technological, demographic, cultural, and societal trends that are shaping work and building on what we learned through our experiences of the pandemic, Gratton presents her innovative four-step framework for redesigning work that will help you:
Understand your people and what drives performance
Reimagine creative new ways to work
Model and test these approaches within your organization
Act and create to ensure your redesign has lasting benefits
Here are some reviews/discussions/excepts from the book.
“After the extraordinary changes of the pandemic, Lynda Gratton’s rigorous new study makes clear we should not leave the future of work to chance.”
“As we redesign work for the hybrid future, it is vital to understand the ways that information flows and networks form within organizations.”
“Lynda Gratton of London Business School has been one of the leading academic voices on what work should look like after the pandemic.”
