Digital Project Practice for New Work and Industry 4.0 begins by introducing basic concepts in the context of Industry 4.0 and discussing how they might influence organizational communication and impact the work environment. After examining the possibilities and challenges of remote work and collaboration in distributed teams worldwide, the book looks at a company’s fundamental changes related to New Work from a practical business perspective as well as legal and ethical perspectives. It reviews the case of the VW emission scandal and recommends ways to improve corporate culture. Legal issues include New Work and hybrid forms of collaboration and liability for automated decisions (i.e., the potential need for an “electronic person”). Other implications for the workplace include how:
• Industry 4.0 might influence the potential demand for “Digital Unions”
• Industry 4.0, lean production, and their applications can change industrial practices
