The Interconnected Individual: Seizing Opportunity in the Era of AI, Platforms, Apps, and Global Exchanges


Given the rapid technological, organizational, and structural changes that challenge conventional institutions and economies, what is the future of work? The authors propose a path to seize opportunity for the individual worker and entrepreneur, who can be newly interconnected and augmented by emerging technologies. Values-based individual career and business navigation can thrive and succeed; teams, groups, and networks can be enhanced with a new mode of innovation based on social conversation and connection rather than a commercial, hierarchical, and prescriptive process.
The authors provide visual models, case studies, and in- depth interviews with cutting-edge practitioners, who provide insights from real-world experience. The Interconnected Individual is intended to help business and professional executives and freelance workers to adopt an entrepreneurial mind-set, regardless of field, industry, or work role.
