Much like the Industrial Revolution of the late 18th century, automation is changing the face of our working world from agriculture to healthcare and beyond. It is altering not only what we do but how we do it. In the 1950’s, factories and offices were revolutionised by the introduction of automation: the Bank of America replaced 2500 bookkeepers with computers (BBC) The result? Hundreds of hours were saved and the margin for error was reduced dramatically.
Since then, we have seen a steady incline in the implementation and use of automation. One modern day applic...

Unfortunately, agility cannot be achieved by one maverick individual within an organisation. Bounding across the office, working wherever they want, whenever they want…Sound familiar? The whole organisation has to be on board, and agile working has to become part of organisational culture.
So here are som...
You may think that “Agile” and “Flexible” working are interchangeable terms for the same thing. It may conjure up ideas of working from home, or swanning into the office after 10am. But what does it really mean?
