Webinar: Imagining Work Without Jobs | MIT Sloan Management Review

Podcast | Webinar Workforce Planning

In this new one-hour on-demand webinar conducted on April 27, 2022, Ravin Jesuthasan and John W. Boudreau share ideas from their book, Work without Jobs: How to Reboot Your Organization’s Work Operating System (released March 29, 2022). The main point of their book is that organizations must embrace a new “work operating system” that deconstructs or unpacks jobs into specific tasks and uses them (not job descriptions) to unlock new options for organizing work and sourcing, rewarding, and engaging workers. By applying this concept of deconstruction, firms can better match ”melted” jobs (tasks or projects) with melted job holders (skills and capabilities) with greater agility. During the webinar, Ravin and John cover the seven key elements of this new work operating system and what it means for workers, the work ecosystem, and management.
