Coming: History’s Longest Unemployment Line?

In no way do I want to dis­count the work­place trau­ma that is here to stay as com­pa­nies of every size invest in new tech­nolo­gies. The work world is going through major change, and peo­ple will be affect­ed. Yet, my opti­mism remains string that oppor­tu­ni­ties will emerge from these sub­stan­tial threats to our liveli­hoods — if we can think clear­ly and oper­ate today with a fore­sense of what is com­ing tomor­row.

An Entrepreneurial Religion?

Ries is, at every turn, mea­sured and ratio­nal in this book. But his over­all style tru­ly suc­ceeds in mak­ing the read­er feel that the heavy weight of the sta­tus quo of big com­pa­nies can be light­ened as those man­ag­ing those com­pa­nies become more enlight­ened. Were the world to believe in entre­pre­neur­ship as deeply as some believe in tra­di­tion­al reli­gions, it’s just pos­si­ble that this new year could change jobs and com­pa­nies, peo­ple and soci­eties, lead­ers and fol­low­ers.

Revolution In The Air

So we must be care­ful. We must be care­ful that our human­i­ty is not swamped by the dig­i­tal rev­o­lu­tion. I thought, maybe we should need a char­ter for human­i­ty that peo­ple can hang onto as they organ­ise their cor­po­ra­tions. And I thought, that’s not enough. Actu­al­ly, we need a cul­tur­al rev­o­lu­tion. We need to rethink how busi­ness­es, par­tic­u­lar­ly, but all organ­i­sa­tions are actu­al­ly run. And why they are run. And what is the pur­pose of busi­ness.” (Charles Handy)

Think Global, Innovate Local

Glob­al needs. I find very few who are will­ing to view their own busi­ness­es via that unique lens. And while there are com­pa­nies ded­i­cat­ed to such a point of view, not that many cor­po­ra­tions are will­ing to think along these lines.

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?”

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.”
