Back in 1992, Peter Drucker, the legendary management expert, wrote about "the rise of the knowledge worker." Since then, trends already in place have accelerated faster than anyone could have expected.

In this episode of Generation Digital Workforce, we talk with Rick Wartzman, Head of the KH Moon Center for a Functioning Society at the Drucker Institute, about how automation has impacted the knowledge worker since the mid-1900s.

Specifically, Rick talks about:

  • Trends in knowledge work over the past 20-30 years
  • The relationship between knowledge workers and digital transformation
  • How automation will impact knowledge workers in the future
