Office Shock

COVID-19, with all its tragic consequences, also created an opportunity to ask this basic question: why do we work in offices at all?

In their book, Office Shock: Creating Better Futures for Working and Living, Bob Johansen and co-authors Joseph Press and Christine Bullen, will show you how to think future back — asking the questions: What future do we envision? What changes are coming next? What shall we do now, to prepare ourself for unprecedented futures?

Office Shock, published by Berrett-Koehler in 2023, identifies the spectrums of choices that must be made in the present to make a better office, and a better future. It will also educate readers on how to think about the future back — forecasting futures, revealing insights, and aligning actions — to re-imagine where and how “office work” can and should be done.
