It seems as if productivity is maintained at a high price. A new world of work: from intensive to sustainable work systems? Various expressions of growing intensity associated with new forms of work organization can partly be traced to a common cause: the relaxation of the delimitation of work processes of the Tayloristic world. The new management doctrines are shedding ‘confinements’. Many tasks have high prescriptions, but low limitation and only limited design, in order to ensure flexibility.

A O tempora, O mores! 23 healthy work situation should let us concentrate on fewer things and allow the pleasure of having completed some – to be victorious. A concept connecting to optimal stimulation, but also bearing on splitting of attention, is ‘flow experience’. Csikszentmihalyi (1990) defined this as enjoyment growing from the continuous mastery over what happens in one’s consciousness. A way of handling overexposure to external stimuli is selection, a foundation for mastery of the consciousness and possibly the enjoyment in any situation (Kira 2000 and Chapter 5).

Increasing productivity by implementing new, more efficient working methods and technical support means ‘working smarter’, whereas increased intensity means ‘working harder’ on the basis of the same operational procedures. Productivity is based on process innovations, while intensity merely heightens workforce utilization – again typical of the low-mechanized public sector and some white collar work. The dynamics of industrial development started with the introduction of the horizontal division of labour according to the thinking of Adam Smith.
