Future Business: The game has changed
One of the most challenging ideas we have to work through is the statement that the future has become part of the presence. If we place this idea in the mindset of the old school ways of doing things, then we just need one additional idea to really understand the complexity of our world. This last idea is the fact that these three realities, (future, present and past) live in the same people, communities and companies. A company can sell the most advanced futuristic products by using old school sales and supply chain methods. Individuals could be research engineers working on ground-breaking software development but they want their children in an old-school type college. A business could have a chief executive officer with an old school mindset of managing employees but sells the most Industry four type of services. The question is: How sustainable is this?
In this publication – Future Business – some of your questions and challenges will be answered. But be careful. Some new questions and answers may surface in your mind. Prepare yourself to be challenged but also to enjoy the adventure of living in such a dynamic frame of history. The best one ever!
