we invest and we subsidize their education in fields where there are no jobs
Transition Trauma Guaranteed. We are currently experiencing a very unique combination of digitally-fueled disruptions: rising globalization and much increased economic interdependence of regions, nations, companies and people, widespread and hyper-effective socio-political activism via social networks and UGC media (especially video, as Koni2012′s 96Million views have shown), the rise of almost Wikileakean openness expectations by consumers and a new kind of ‘tyranny of transparency’ that has engulfed people around the globe, radical consumer empowerment based on waves of technological leaps and what is often referred to the ‘consumerization of IT’, and an overall sense of ambiguity and instability. These trends, to me, are showing that we are heading into an ‘it-all-depends’ – world rather than an either/or world. In this future, many yes/no situations of the past are becoming maybe’s – and this poses a real challenge to business planning and operations. Linear thinking can now be a real disadvantage; lateral, organic and fluid approaches are becoming a requirement to success.
