Key takeaways

  • To think seriously about the jobs of the future requires us to take a step back from the hyperbolic figures often seen in forecasts in this field.
  • It is through transformation and gradual development that professions emerge.
  • Three emerging areas stand out today: we can observe the appearance of new requirements that already exist as job functions and are in the process of giving rise to new occupations.
  • The first emerging area is the need to develop robots, algorithms, and AI to refine their interactions with humans.
  • The second area involves the ecological transitions, where jobs in the design and management of buildings, cities, vehicle fleets and natural or agricultural areas are flourishing.
  • A third emerging area concerns confidentiality, cybersecurity, and the ethical quality of technical devices or their relations with, today, humans, and tomorrow the natural world, starting with animals.

Key takeaways

  • 72% of European workers think that robots will steal their jobs.
  • This perception is mistaken and is growing with the automation of certain jobs; it is not going to go away.
  • The most highly automated countries in the world, such as Germany and Japan, are also those with the lowest unemployment rates.
  • For the most part, if we look at the heart of jobs such as caring for people or making bread, these jobs are here to stay.

Key takeaways

  • Web3 decentralises organisational power: anyone can create an ecosystem around a subject and organise people around it.
  • Digital communities take the form of DAOs (decentralized autonomous organizations), which mobilize contributors through smart contracts.
  • In this new version of project-based management, recruitment disappears, remuneration is a collective matter, and all decisions are audited.
  • The main functions of management (organisation, governance, management) do not disappear but are detached from the figure of the “manager” to be reconfigured and replayed in a different way.
