50 Ideas That Changed the World of Work

Jeremy Kourdi

Fifty key ideas that have changed the way we think about why we behave the way we do while at work.

The world of work is full of ideas. Some of these ideas shape the work we do and the way we do it. But it can often be hard to sort the wheat from the chaff.

When ideas really do break new ground and change the way we think about what we do, they can help all of us to be better, happier, and more productive. The trick is to know which ones offer the most reliable vision, and how they can be adapted and deployed to the best effect.

By encapsulating and explaining the best of this thinking, 50 Ideas that Changed the World of Work is equal parts vision and road map; an invaluable and insightful guide to navigating the world of work today.
