Here are five key enablers to keep your eye on:
Technology will play a critical part in collaboration, so people will need to understand and work with technology in new ways. Design projects can have a life of their own and an evolution in a virtual world before they become a physical object.
Empowering people with technology to innovate will be a key part of the future of work. Part of this is being able to access and understand data, which is the main driver for every digital transformation, and the oil of the new economy.
Every day, new virtual reality (VR) technology comes on to the market. The next 10 years will bring a seamless transition between technology and real life as wearable technology, VR, augmented reality (AR) and geo-hotspotting work together. This will impact all industries, providing a way for work to be shared with millions of people around the world.
Collaboration will be elevated by 3D. File-sharing will exist in such a way that something designed with AR goggles, for example, in one place can be worked on by someone else in another place, even the other side of the world. Physical objects will be shared at the same time in a digital world and the concept of distance will be very different.
Increasingly, the days people work, where they work, and what country they work in won’t matter as long as they’re empowered with the technology to help them collaborate.
