Given the rapid technological, organizational, and structural changes that challenge conventional institutions and economies, what is the future of work? The authors propose a path to seize opportunity for the individual worker and entrepreneur, who can be newly interconnected and augmented by emerging technologies. Values-based individual career and business navigation can thrive and succeed; teams, groups, and networks can be enhanced with a new mode of innovation based on social conversation and connection rather than a commercial, hierarchical, and prescriptive process. The authors provide visual models, case studies, and in-depth interviews with cutting-edge practitioners, who provide insights from real-world experience. The Interconnected Individual is intended to help business and professional executives and freelance workers to adopt an entrepreneurial mind-set, regardless of field, industry, or work role.
