The Future of Driving Is Electric

The notion of get­ting out in front of change and using it as a cat­a­lyst for reori­ent­ing, first, your com­pa­ny and, even­tu­al­ly, an entire indus­try may seem daunt­ing, but it is absolute­ly essen­tial to leadership.

New Next Now (Trends for August 2017)

Sav­ing the world, one video game at a time. Sound unbe­liev­able? Accord­ing to Rachel Ament from NPR sev­er­al indie game devel­op­ers are hop­ing to do just that. And yet, Ament right­ly asks: “Does the impact of these ‘games for good’ rever­ber­ate off-screen?”

New Next Now (Trends for July 2017)

So, what is the city’s game plan? Already, Dubai has made a $14 bil­lion invest­ment to estab­lish a 5,000-megawatt solar pan­el net­work that will pro­vide 25 per­cent of the city’s need­ed elec­tric­i­ty, says Blum. City lead­ers are also active­ly imag­in­ing a future defined by inno­va­tion: bio-desal­i­­na­­tion, robot­i­cal­ly main­tained indoor farms, even fly­ing cars. Min­is­ter of Cab­i­net Affairs Moham­mad Al Ger­gawi frames Dubai’s vision: “We need to think faster, and we need to rein­vent every sin­gle product.”

Are humans really necessary?

The advent of more tech­nol­o­gy will mean that every busi­ness will have to go through some stormy weath­er. As we move to new tech­no­log­i­cal plat­forms, the jour­ney will test the strength of lead­er­ship wis­dom and resolve. My advice? Make sure you don’t leave behind the umbrel­la of human learning.

Pareto On Steroids

All the tech­nol­o­gy under the sun will not pro­duce pos­i­tive effects in and of itself. Tech­nol­o­gy needs to be accom­pa­nied first by an uncom­pro­mis­ing growth mind­set, one com­mit­ted to the con­tin­u­ous search for cus­tomer val­ue based growth oppor­tu­ni­ties. Then, tech­nol­o­gy needs a spe­cial kind of fuel to super­charge its poten­tial: the human imag­i­na­tion, which allows for a spec­trum of out­comes giv­en the nature and cir­cum­stances of the context.

Sick and Tired of Being Treated and Dying

If you are seri­ous­ly ill, your first thought is to go to a hos­pi­tal. But in the US, that move may kill you. I am not kidding.

Leaders Take Imaginative Leaps

So, every­thing at Net­flix is per­fect, right? Time to sit back and just let the riv­er of prof­its flow, right? Wor­ry about the future of Net­flix? Waste of time. Its future is guar­an­teed. Right? For­get all that. Lead­ers are always think­ing about the future. It’s their #1 job to be able to answer (or, at least, try to answer) the core ques­tion: What’s next?
