Humanity will change more in the next 10 years than the previous 100 years. Does your organization pride itself on its people (talent) and its culture? If you are an executive or a leader, are you investing enough in the skills and the MINDSET of your people in order to steer your company through the coming waves of exponential technological progress and disruption? All too often, scientific breakthroughs and the latest tech-hype or the constant concerns about jobs and economic growth dominate discussions about our future. Yet as the world is rapidly going digital and becoming more virtual, at the same time, I believe it actually is our humanity that needs the most attention, and that it will be our humanness that will make all the difference in a world dominated by algorithms and smart machines. Technology that will inevitably outpace us in mere processing power, logic and efficiency – and the ‘End of Routine’ is a certainty. Therefore I believe that our future is to become more human, not less; not to compete with the machines but to use their increasing competence to get commodity tasks done better and faster – As a tool but not as a purpose. Machines, computers and algorithms should have competence not consciousness. Consider these Game-Changers: Data is the new oil, artificial intelligence is the new electricity, the Cloud is the new living room, and the Internet of Things is becoming the new nervous system. Digital giants and social media platforms have replaced banks [More]
