Skills, Work, and Technology

Topic Leaders: David Finegold and Stephen Barley

As new technologies, including changes in the management of employees, are introduced, workers and employers must adapt. In some cases, particular jobs are eliminated or moved to other nations; in other cases, new types of jobs and occupations are created; in still others, the skills required for a line of work morph from the inside while the occupation retains its former name.


This research cluster examines the impact of technology and globalization on the changing skill requirements of the workforce. Accordingly, we are also concerned with what approaches to education, training, and workforce development are most effective in meeting new skill demands and with supporting the creation of good jobs and high-performance organizations. Stephen Barley is co-leader of the Skills, Work, and Technology research cluster.
