It turns out that when spiders go up into space, they eventually figure out how to spin webs without the help of gravity. The first webs are a bit messy and don’t work, but then the spiders adapt to new methods.
The capacity of adapting to new or unforeseen circumstances that shift the fundamentals for how work gets done is also seen in the human world, adapting to disruptors in the work world. That’s the topic of ATB Financial’s senior economist Todd Hirsch’s new book, Spiders in Space — Successfully Adapting to Unwanted Change.
