“Two weeks ago, MIT's David Autor gave the prestigious Richard T. Ely lecture at the annual meeting of American economists in Atlanta. Introduced by the former chair of the Federal Reserve Ben Bernanke as a "first-class thinker" who was doing "path-breaking" work on the central economic issues of automation, globalization, and inequality, Autor strolled up to the microphone with a big smile,” writes Greg Rosalsky in their recent NPR article entitled “What The Future Of Work Means For Cities.”
“His talk was about the past and future of work, and he focused especially on cities,” explains Rosalsky.
According to the article, “Every decade the U.S. Census Bureau asks people what they do for work. If enough people report a certain job title, the bureau adds it to a list of jobs.”
“Autor and Anna Salomons, an economist at Utrecht University in the Netherlands, analyzed the last few decades of this data and tracked the types of jobs that have been created. They identify three trends that help explain where employment in the U.S. may be headed,” writes Rosalsky.
The first trend is called “frontier work,” which is all about technology-related jobs.
Well, that got us thinking.
Not necessarily about tech jobs.
The thinking process evolved for us into going down a rabbit hole of everything related to the future of properties.
We get it; these trends are not directly (and only) related to property operations.
But the concept of how the work component affects future cities was intriguing.
And it led to this critical question:
What does the future of Proactive Operations mean for properties?
We took a step back and looked at the idea of “Jetson jobs” as Autor calls it in the article.
For us, the decision revolves around the future.
That’s where Proactive Operations fits so well.
It’s not frontier work but let’s call it a “Frontier Methodology.”
What’s its purpose?
Drive the future of property operations, inclusive of work, technology, security, risk, and experience.
In a nutshell, create better and better memories.
