Reinventing Jobs: A 4-Step Approach for Applying Automation to Work:

Daniel H. Pink, author, Drive and When
Reinventing Jobs cuts through the hype and hysteria and shows leaders how to apply automation and artificial intelligence in their organizations. Jesuthasan and Boudreau are the clear-eyed guides every organization needs.”

Zhang Ruimin, Chairman and CEO, Haier Group–
“In the age of the Internet of Things (IoT) and AI . . . Reinventing Jobs is a book ahead of its time and points the way to the ‘humanization’ of the enterprise.”

Jim Whitehurst, President and CEO, Red Hat–
“Jesuthasan and Boudreau help us ask the right questions when we’re considering where and when to automate. They recognize that automation is not a simple ‘rip and replace’ of certain jobs and tasks, but rather something that requires a layered approach.”

Ralph W. Brown, Chief Technology Officer and Senior Vice President, Research & Development, CableLabs–
“This book provides an excellent, much-needed framework to guide the collaboration necessary among CIOs, CHROs, and other functional leaders to optimize work and the application of automation in today’s rapidly changing environment.”

Anthony G. Petrello, Chairman, President, and CEO, Nabors Industries–
“A must-read for every CEO. A most thoughtful approach with examples from numerous industries that illustrate that automation and workflow optimization are critical to competing effectively.”

Diana McKenzie, Senior Vice President and CIO, Workday–
Reinventing Jobs is a book that CIOs, CHROs, and all C-suite leaders should read together. This four-step framework takes the guesswork out of building your digital strategy and a future-ready, engaged, and agile workforce.”

Saadia Zahidi, Head of Education, Gender and Work and member of the Executive Committee, World Economic Forum–
“Jesuthasan and Boudreau bring an insightful and practical approach to dealing with one of the most significant challenges of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.”

Alan May, Chief People Officer, Hewlett Packard Enterprise–
“Jesuthasan and Boudreau offer a comprehensive approach to transforming work while enabling organizations–and individuals–to adapt and thrive.”

Irish Tech News
“Transcending the endless debate about humans being replaced by machines, Jesuthasan and Boudreau show how smart leaders instead are optimizing human-automation combinations that are not only more efficient but also generate higher returns on improved performance. Based on groundbreaking primary research, Reinventing Jobs provides an original, structured approach …to help leaders reinvent how work gets bundled into jobs and create optimal human-machine combinations.”


Human Resource Excellence: An Assessment of Strategies and Trends

David Ulrich, University of Michigan–
“Lawler and Boudreau present exceptional research with marvelous insights about the HR profession. Their ideas are conceptually innovative, research-based, and useful for anyone committed to advancing HR. The HR profession is privileged to have true thought leaders like Lawler and Boudreau.”

Jeff T.H. Pon, Former Chief Human Resources and Strategy Officer, Society for Human Resource Management–
Human Resource Excellence provides great thought leadership. This seminal and longitudinal view of human resources eloquently explains where the HR profession is and where it needs to go.”

Fred Foulkes, Boston University–
“Using both national and international data as well as insights from cutting-edge research, Lawler and Boudreau have written a book that HR leaders and senior line managers alike need to read. It not only puts HR in a historical context, but also shows how it can truly add value to an organization.”


Lead the Work: Navigating a World Beyond Employment

Pat Wadors, Senior Vice President, Global Talent, LinkedIn–
“So if you desire more leverage, becoming and staying a ‘best place to work’, and addressing the competitive talent landscape to harness the best talent for the right problem, then Lead the Work is a must read. It will get you thinking about possibilities and push us further into the new way of work.”

Diane Gherson, Senior Vice President, Human Resources, IBM–
“If you are a corporate officer, investor or manager, read this book to understand how to lead and engage the new workforce. Share the book with your HR leaders, and discuss how you can work with them to optimize the opportunities, and avoid the pitfalls, of the new global workplace.”

Maynard Webb, Founder of the Webb Investment Network and Chairman of the Board at Yahoo!–
“The workplace is undergoing a profound transformation. John, Ravin, and David demonstrate how work is evolving, and detail what managers need to do differently to win the war for talent. This book is a practical map for managers and employees.”

Douglas A. Milroy, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, G&K Services, Inc.–
Lead the Work offers a thoughtful framework for understanding and managing the rapidly evolving nature of how work gets done. While forward looking in its approach, it captures important and practical insights for CEOs operating in today’s environment as well.”

Daniel H. Pink, author of Free Agent Nation and Drive–
“Free Agent Nation is fast becoming Free Agent World. And in this smart, compelling book, a trio of sharp minds provides the intellectual GPS you’ll need to find your way. If you’re interested in the future of work, this book is an essential read.”

Scott Pitasky, Executive Vice President and Chief Partner (Human) Resources Officer, Starbucks–
“The world of work is changing in just about every way. There are big obvious shifts like globalization and the impact of technology and emerging trends around value and purpose that make us rethink what we are trying to accomplish. Lead the Work is a wonderful combination of theory and practice that explores these changes. It helps us understand what is happening and the ‘new choices’ we have to innovate and execute. How do we use partners and customers? How can technology source skills from within our own organization? How can work be dissected to be more responsive and fast? John, Ravin, and David help us all be more aware of these fundamental changes and more prepared to make informed and deliberate decisions in this new world of work.”

Adam Grant, Professor, Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania, and New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take–
“Leadership has become more collective, boundaryless and democratic. A big reason is that work is no longer done only by your employees, but by a vast global community that works in very different ways, and expects very different things. Lead the Work describes a pivotal change in how organizations and workers will engage, a shift as tectonic as past evolutions like online commerce, the sharing economy, and social media. The book draws on engaging stories, scholarly evidence, and best practices from leading organizations, and the decades of experience of its authors. If this evolution in work hasn’t reached your organization yet, it will, and its progress will be exponential. This book will help you get ahead of the curve to navigate this new world.”
