Where do you work? We may answer this question with a physical location... but increasingly that is either only a partial truth, impossible to answer or just irrelevant. In this fascinating, highly personal investigation into work, Paul Miller challenges us rethink how and where we work today. Blending his own working career experiences, with those of organizations, Miller says it is the 'digital' in the workplace that now defines and shapes our working lives. Building on compelling stories from well-known organizations, Miller explains in a powerful narrative how every aspect of work is being transformed. This is an essential exploration of modern and future work that we can all relate to personally. Addiction, disappointment, liberation, slavery, speed - 'The Digital Workplace' is a captivating manifesto for work that lingers in the head and the heart. Paul Miller is a technology and social entrepreneur. He is CEO and Founder of the Digital Workplace Forum and the Intranet Benchmarking Forum and has been at the heart of the work and technology revolution for the last decade. He is the host of IBF Live, a monthly intranet media show, and Executive Producer and host of the annual IBF 24, which features 24 hours of the world's best intranets plus thought-provoking discussion on how work is being redesigned through technology. He has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, and wrote the best-selling book Mobilising the Power of What You Know. After an early career as a business journalist and speech writer, he published the influential WAVE magazine in 1990 and established The Empowerment Group in 1992, pioneering new approaches to communication within major organizations. In 1993, he co-founded the Ideas Café, a regular innovation event, shaped along social software lines during the early days of the web. Paul was one of the leaders of the innovative 'Fathers and Daughters Weekends'. He lives in London and has two daughters.
