Praise for the book
”A great guide for how your organization can plan and design the digital workplace for the future of work.”
"We work the same as in 1995”! Collaboration practitioners and anyone interested in getting things done in organizations share this frustration: the slow evolution, the partial adoption and the limited relevance of the digital workplace is appalling. Leveraging solid research and firsthand experience, Oscar Berg & Henrik Gustafsson synthesize all key drivers and challenges that get in the way. Even more interestingly, they propose a complete approach to improve, one that really puts human needs at the center of work digitalization. This book should give back hope to many, as it did to me!"
"The authors provide an balanced perspective of the benefits and challenges of digital workplace implementation, presenting invaluable guidance on translating a vision into a high-quality employee experience."
"The book is a rare combination in a single work of both strategic and pragmatic insights and guidance. I strongly recommend that digital workplace project teams invest the time to read and discuss the book together. The time will be well spent, bringing team members with complementary skills to a shared understanding of how to make the digital workplace the heart of where people interact and create value."
"With diagrams, examples, quotes and case studies this books gives a comprehensive view of why the digital workplace is critical to all employees and how organisations need to adopt the right approach. It is a book that you can come back to for specific sections to refresh your memory after absorbing the learning from your initial reading of this book. I wish I had ”Digital Workplace Strategy & Design” with me when I first started my career and benefit from Oscar and Henrik’s combined wisdom each working day. However you can do that by reading this book and change your organisation’s approach!
"This book is genial. It helps you understand the digital workplace and what modern working life is about. A really good guide to a smarter digital workplace."
"This is a must-read book for business and IT leaders wanting to improve the digital workplace. Oscar Berg and Henrik Gustafsson have created a new corporate “bible” for better connecting people, information, and knowledge to improve customer engagement and operational efficiency. The book provides a practical approach for establishing a digital workplace strategy, but also how to establish a roadmap from moving from current to future state. The best book I have read in years!"
"If you really want to create a sustainable workplace where the people can focus on the things that really matter, then here you have the best guidebook to take you there."
"This is for the right minded people…Some out there prefer doing things by the text book. Oscar and Henrik deliver the one for your digital workplace journey - but it comes with a disclaimer: it only works, if you really mean it. Delivering empowerment to people at work is way more than designing the amazing IT systems. It’s about leading the way into a new age of productivity, togetherness and “WE” thinking from day one. Oscar and Henrik provide the framework, the step-by-step guidance and tangible work tools to map out and take that journey. Their thinking and advise is down to earth, pragmatic and born from practice - with enough theory and data in the background to be credible. If you believe in your stamina for this magnitude of change make the content of the book yours. It’s worth it.”
”The book provides a great holistic overview of the journey towards the new working life, from defining concrete value and vision to a practical approach for strategy development, service orientation, and activity-based ways of working. This ensures a well-grounded journey to success for the organization and to a modern way of working in a digital world."
”I can really recommend this book. A lot of strategy literature talks about what to do but not how to do it. This book gives the answer to HOW with several practical tools to use.”
“For everyone who is in charge or working on a digitalization project I strongly recommend this book. It’s also worth a read for people who are struggling with digitalization as Oscar & Henrik are explaining the needs behind so the fear can be reduced.”
