FUTURE OF WORK ARCHETYPE: SYNCHRONOUS

We recently surveyed 1,000 business leaders around the world, asking them how they expect their organizations to operate in the future across three core dimensions: People, Spaces and Practices. The findings enabled us to define eight archetypes of future work.

This week we reveal our fifth archetype; the Synchronous Business.  


Synchronous businesses display people-centric, rooted and linear attributes.

This business is socially organised around a common mission. Employees are given specific roles within Synchronous organisations, allowing them to take on set responsibilities within the company. 

This allows employees to maintain ownership over work streams while still working towards a common goal. All this, maximising efficiencies throughout the organisation.

Does this sound like your business? Learn more about the other archetypes here.
