Jungle or Zoo? Managing the landscape of highly scaled work in the 2020s
Prachi Tiwari, Lead Consultant & Nigel Dalton, Social Scientist at Thoughtworks
In the 20th century, work was a metaphorical zoo - a predictable outing where you were guaranteed to see all the animals in an orderly and predictable fashion. Fast forward to the 2020s, organisations find themselves in a digital business jungle, signed on to an expensive safari where chances are, they’ll not spot a single dangerous creature or exotic opportunity from the safety of their vehicle - while knowing for sure the hazards are still out there.
In the 100 years since F.W. Taylor, Henry Gantt and James McKinsey first conjured up scientific management, program control, 7 kinds of PMO boss, charts to weed out wastrels and the dark arts of budgeting, a great deal has changed. So, why are we still using their outdated, steam-driven management tools in today’s business landscape?
Learn how to manage 21st century work at scale with our speakers Prachi Tiwari and Nigel Dalton at our next By Thoughtworks tech talk coming to you live and in-person across all our Thoughtworks offices in Brisbane (June 21), Sydney (June 22) and Melbourne (June 23). Please arrive by 5.30pm for a 6pm start.
The By Thoughtworks event tech-talk series is a community forum to share industry thinking about emerging technical trends, and -- as always -- inspire debate and conversation.
You’ll find an open, comfortable environment for technologists to meet and discuss recent developments in the tech world, projects that both inspire and challenge, and how to stay on top of the ever-shifting tech landscape.
We invite you to join our groups in your local city so you can be kept informed on upcoming events, happening every 6 weeks.
