Plano and Irving, TX (PRWEB) January 03, 2013
The new, eye-opening book, The New World of Work: From the Cube to the Cloud, underscores startling statistics about the global labor force. With the eBook version available mid-January and the hard copy book being released in February 2013, The New World of Work reveals a roadmap for smart professionals and entrepreneurs to stay ahead of competition.
Co-authors, Tim Houlne, CEO of Working Solutions, and Terri Maxwell, CEO of Succeed on Purpose, wrote the book to help professionals, corporations and business owners negotiate the unstoppable evolution of the new world economy.
“At the heart of the New World of Work are three monumental technology and mindset shifts,” said Houlne. “Fractionalized work means routine tasks are being outsourced. Virtualized careers allow professionals leveraging cloud technology to work from anywhere at any time. And globalized talent means boundaries to projects and work assignments are being torn down from around the world. Business executives can take key sections from the book and put them into practice in their organizations immediately.”
The New World of Work: From the Cube to the Cloud provides compelling examples of progressive companies, forward-looking executives, and Virtualpreneurs™ who have successfully navigated this new reality.
“We coined the term Virtualpreneur – combining virtual and entrepreneur – to spotlight this new breed of professionals who are capitalizing on high-demand skills to catapult their careers,” added Maxwell. “In the book, we detail how folks in career transition can get training and access to resources to embark on a new career journey.”
