Forrester’s recent guide on the Future of Work analyzes the ways in which automation is expected to change everything and anything to do with work – starting at the beginning, with fundamental questions such as what an organization is, what a company does, and how exactly the work gets done.
Automation is not happening in a vacuum – rather, in tandem with parallel trends that combine to create new types of business opportunities. Here’s some of how the intersection of automation and other trends are expected to pan out:
