The SMART work design model was developed by Australian Research Council Professor Sharon Parker at the Future of Work Institute.


The framework can be used when designing meaningful and motivating work, identifying five key themes that result in positive outcomes across jobs and industries. The themes for SMART work are:StimulatingMasteryAgencyRelational, and Tolerable Demands.


Through leading-edge research and its dissemination, the institute will implement the six thematic programs.

These programs will shape the research and practice of the Institute.

The programs intersect with each in multiple ways and all contribute to the overall theme of thriving in a digital age.
