The nature of work in organizations is changing to accommodate new forms of organizing through emerging digital technologies like platforms, AI, robotics, 3D printing, among others. While potentially transforming work, digital technology also has deep effects on employee engagement and how meaning is formed in day to day work. For example, crowd working platforms now span organization boundaries and, in fact, have led to forms of work where it becomes almost irrelevant to which organizations individuals belong or whether they belong to a particular organization at all. Digital ecosystems emerging from these changes can thus be highly decentralized and more flexible in terms of when, where, and how we work. Yet there are also multiple adverse effects associated with these emerging patterns of work, for example too much connectivity and managing boundaries of work and personal life. Ultimately digitalization is transforming the workplace and organizing, including new forms of leadership, governance structures and individual responses to digital ecosystems. These and other issues related to digital ecosystems and the changing nature of work will be explored in this workshop.
