Work Design with Cognitive Resources in Mind

Project Brief

Work design has over 100 years of research and multiple theories have been developed. Despite all of that work, gaps in our understanding remain, in part, because work itself is dynamic. Work is changing to be more cognitively intensive, technical, and data-driven. This means that designing work that helps our brains function at a high-level in a sustainable way may become the next defining feature of good work. Thus, the main research question for this project is: how do you design work to replenish and potentially grow cognitive resources?
