The Future of Business in a Constantly Changing Reality
The next 5-10 years could bring about a greater level of change for individuals, society, business and government than the last fifty. Science and technology will play a critical role in this transformation. Disruptive forces will include rapid technological evolution, the shift from the information age to a biological era, mapping and uploading of the human brain, emergence of new materials, the quest for radical life extension and the pursuit of immortality. These developments combined with economic, political, environmental and socio-demographic shifts will drive fundamental change across society.
In this rapidly changing world, we can expect evolution and revolution in everything from economic, political and social governance systems, through to education, healthcare and security. In business, reinvention will encompass mission and strategy, business models, organization design and the nature of work. As individuals we will be challenged to think about our own purpose, how we can achieve personal fulfillment and how to structure and enjoy a life that could span 120 years or more.
To help us examine these issues, Rohit will explore the key forces, emerging ideas and advances in technology that could shape our world over the next decade. He will describe how these developments could impact everything from the design of products and services to the way in which we interact, sell, service customers and manage our organizations. He will highlight the implications for individuals, organizations and governments and the way in which we design, plan and manage our use of IT to realize its true potential in a constantly changing reality.
