Abstract: More and more academic studies and practitioner reports claim that human work is increasingly disrupted or even determined by information and communication technology (ICT). This will make a considerable share of jobs currently performed by humans susceptible to automation. These reports often sketch a picture of ‘machines taking over’ traditional domains like manufacturing, while ICT advances and capabilities seem to decide companies’ fate. Consequently, ICT is often put at the core of innovative efforts. While this applies to nearly all areas of workplace design, a recent popular example of increasing technology centricity is ‘Industry 4.0’, which is often delineated as ‘machines talking to computers’.
