Keeping America at Work: Strategies for Employing the New Technologies

Front Cover
Examining the accelerating pace of technological innovation and its impact on American manufacturing, the work place and the nature of work, this book draws on research derived from firms in the US and abroad. Lund and Hansen explore the critical issues surrounding 'the factory of the future' - how and where will the new technology be used, what will its probable effect be on people at various levels of the organization and what should be done to promote its benefits and alleviate the dislocation associated with large-scale automation.
