12 Years of Research On Organizations in the Digital Age

Current Research 2018: The Gig Mindset Inside Organizations

My current research started in early 2018 is focused on the mindsets of individuals, and the mindset of their organizations.  I’m looking into what I call the “gig mindset” and how it compares to a traditional mindset: advantages, risks, opportunities for people inside organizations and for the organizations themselves.

I’m exploring how the gig mindset can increase organizational resilience, innovation and longevity.

The Foundational Framework

The Foundational Framework was defined in 2013 . There were three purposes:

  1. Enable management and practitioners to understand how people and organizational characteristics are critical, even important than technology, as we move deeper into the digital age.
  2. Facilitate self-assessment of digital maturity from the internal perspective by underlining the fact that digital inside impacts digital outside. A digitally-savvy workforce is a pre-requisite for success in the business world today.
  3. Provide a framework and food for thought when people are defining priorities and action areas within their organization.

The 9 Dimensions of the Framework

People + Workplace + Technology, with people placed first!

A 3-level Maturity Scale
