Product description

Review

"If you have ever wished that you could transform your approach to work and your working environment, you will be inspired by Dave Coplin and his vision for #bizreimagined."
- Graham Bell, Networked Learning Director, Centre for Customised Executive Development, Cranfield School of Management
"Adapting how and when we work to meet the needs of a connected, always online society is one of the most important challenges faced by business. In Business Reimagined, Dave Coplin offers a blueprint for working better together." --Matthew Yeomans, Author and Consultant

"A diatribe, polemic, samizdat: a hand-grenade lobbed in the general direction of Work 1.0"
Martin Veitch, IDG Connect
"to the future of collaboration and how technology should liberate rather than constrain. Coplin's ideas for reforms to the workplace are incredibly appealing, offering to bring the way in which we work in line with the technological advances of the 21st century."
- Sam Spencer, IDG Connect
"Business Reimagined is a book about business and technology that s worth reading. It's an engaging, compact tome that could inspire business leaders to change the way they do things. Ignore its advice at your peril." --PC Pro

"This is a real insight into the changes that are taking place in how and where people are working and what needs to change in the future. The challenge to work smarter impacts everyone from some of the world s largest corporates to the ever growing network of small and new businesses. Working is becoming more mobile and more social, thanks to the technology we now have available and the changing nature of what we are doing. Changes are happening in all areas of work: where and when you work, who you sit with, how you choose to collaborate and connect, store and share data. This book gives a fascinating insight into that world."
- --James Friedenthal, MD Club Workspace

To be fair I did approach this book with fairly low expectations, however it is Dave Coplin and therefore the reader gets an articulate and witty discourse on why work isn't working. Dave writes in a concise clear style and engages the reader with the intention being both entertaining and thought provoking. At coming in under 100 pages I read it in one enjoyable gulp, noting the irony, that I was in an open plan office...sitting on the edge...monitor shielded....facing the herd!

Dave Coplin is one of the few people in today's world of IT who is a joy to listen to at a meeting or conference. His combination of insight into business and IT mixed with a fine sense of humour makes him as he puts it "a beardy weirdy guy" worth listening to as CEO of Microsoft - that's Chief Envisioning Officer.

Whilst much of what Dave says is just common sense and it is stuff we have all witnessed day to day at work but it is stuff we have failed to see the significance or joined the dots which he clearly has. The work smarter not harder cliché is something we all quote but we seldom do because none of wants to rail against technology in which we trust so completely.

I know for a fact that after reading Dave's book I will be reimagining how I use technology and do business as opposed to simply going on in the same way as I have since the 80's.

'With everything they do in full view of everyone else, the employees in the middle of the office give up on creativity and settle for "productivity".'

It's time that we look at whether we really want to be working in the way we're working, that's the main idea in this book. And yet it's going to be hard, very hard, just to start thinking about how or why we should do this. That's where this book starts, looking at how the traditional workplace has evolved and how a handful of organisations and individuals are beginning to challenge it and find better ways of working (and by "better" I mean ways to make their business more successful and their people happier).

The book is indeed a manifesto, looking at the barriers and opportunities that technology has created to make a more flexible working life. Of course, technology is not enough and what we really need to be looking at is shifting our mindset.

The book is quite short - the Kindle version is free and the paperback is relatively cheap. Go on, have a look. See what you think.

This is a worthwhile read for anyone running a company, leading a team or involved in management doctrine, after all we've waited more than 200 years for something to challenge Taylorism and here it is. If TQM made you weep and Six Sigma makes you want to stick your head in the oven to make the pain go away then this book will make a refreshing read.

The central notion is that the last decade of technology has put us in a situation where employees seek fulfilment as well as reward and the organisations that harness this will win out. With lots of pertinent examples to support this it makes for a thought provoking read.

Could not put this book down. Have just been reading it through the night. My mind is buzzing with ideas and questions about how I can reimagine my little bit of the world! Thanks Dave for a concise, clear and thought provoking read.

I had the pleasure of seeing Dave Coplin doing a speaking slot at a Microsoft Event earlier this year. A fantastic speaker on the topic of thinking differently about how we do business in knowledge worker type roles - this book is very similar to his talk but goes into more detail.

Great that this book is free for the Kindle!
