Work 4.0 Dialogue

E-commerce, big data, crowdfunding and cloud working – a few years ago these terms and similar keywords were only familiar to experts. Meanwhile they belong to everyday life. Digitalization has found its way into our lives – whether private or professional. Work has also changed; it offers many more opportunities than two decades ago. New markets and professions have been created, working hours and methods are changing too. At the same time digitalization entails risks: jobs are subject to cuts, employees are expected to be available 24/7. These changes have obviously not been lost on politicians. The German Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs addressed this topic in detail in the “Work 4.0 Dialogue“. The opening event took place on April 22, 2015, under the slogan “Re-imagining work”.

Crowdsourcing

The term is composed of the words “crowd” and “outsourcing.” It originally attracted attention in 2006, when the American journalist, Jeff Howe, published his article “The Rise of Crowdsourcing” in “Wired” magazine. Howe ascribes the origins of crowdsourcing to the open-source movement and predicts a radical development with regard to the future production of goods in terms of the manufacturing process, the persons participating as well as the costs involved. The journalist, who, in 2008, also published the book “Crowdsourcing – Why the Power of the Crowd is Driving the Future of Business”, sees crowdsourcing as a process in which a company locates volunteers who are willing to process specific tasks via the Internet. The companies benefit from outsourcing internal tasks to a crowd of outsiders.
