  • Welcome to the Age of Hyperspecialization

    by Robert Hughes and Christina Hamlin

    The work of the future will be atomized, with many workers doing pieces of what is today a single job. The hyperspecialization of workers may be inevitable given the quality, speed and cost advantages it offers- and the power it gives individuals to devote flexible hours to tasks of their choice. Just like craft workers of the past, knowledge workers, or hyperspecialists, will engage in peripheral activities that could be done better or more cheaply by others. Using real world business examples the panel will explore directed innovation through hyperspecialization.

    At 11:00am to 12:00pm, Sunday 11th March

    In Rio Grande Ballroom, Marriott Courtyard Austin Downtown/Convention Center
