'The impact of accelerating digital and physical convergence as our work life transforms toward the digital + physical blur is well represented in this new book by Paul Miller. Digital workplace transformation will enhance human performance and innovation across all industry sectors. Digital workplace transformation will further enrich our daily human life experience and our daily work life experiences.' Peter Miscovich, JLL (Jones Lang LaSalle) 'This book gets to the fundamentals of work in the digital realm of organisations today. Miller and co-author Marsh offer a humanist perspective on the fast digitisation of what used to be office-based work. It first stimulates our thinking and then, based on the vast and rich history of the Digital Workplace Group, situates these ideas in real and practical case material. This book will prepare you for the new age of work in organisations.' John Baptista, Warwick Business School, UK 'One of the most comprehensive, complete and compelling journeys toward the new frontier of the digital workplace. The latest work by Paul Miller offers one of the most thorough roadmaps for the digital traveller, who wants to be ready for the work environment of tomorrow. Nothing is omitted from this powerful narrative that touches on technology, but also on processes and even the psychology and ethical make-up of the digital workplace of the future' Giovanni Piazza, Johnson & Johnson - Discovery Sciences 'The future work agenda is gathering pace. In this optimistic and informative book, Miller and Marsh offer a guide to the thorny challenge of making digital workplace strategies more human.' Alison Maitland, co-author of Future Work 'As the digital workplace becomes the borderless enterprise, this book demonstrates pragmatic foresight on the integration of, and augmentation with technology, never losing sight of the fact that humans are at the center of the digital workplace.' Steven Tiell, Global Head Technology Vision, Accenture 'Paul and Elizabeth live at the forefront of the digitization of work, but remain primarily focused on people and the impact of technology on the human condition. The Digital Renaissance of Work provides a fresh and refreshingly optimistic insight into how we'll work in the future.' Ryan Anderson, Director of Future Technology, Herman Miller 'For any organisation trying to get beyond the visual symbols of new ways of working to deliver high-performance workplaces that are manageable and deliver for staff and customers, this is the most coherent and pragmatic text I've come across.' Chris Yapp, BCS 'There is a great deal to commend about this 216 page book. It is well structured and well written. Paul Miller's enthusiasm is infectious.' Martin White, Managing Director, Intranet Focus Ltd. 'This book provides an excellent starting point for any manager wanting to improve their company's digital environment.' Professional Manager, Spring 2015 'Overall this is an excellent introduction and guide to addressing deficiencies in working with digital tools and developing a robust programme of work to effect improvements across the organisation.' International Journal of Information Management, vol. 35, 2015
