What are the game-changers that will shape the future?

Policy Horizons recently published a report The Future of Work: Five Game Changers, where they list a list of five “game-changers, “which could transform work, the very character of the economy, and social programs underpinning the economy.

The “game-changers” include:

  3. Robotics and automation dramatically reduce the need for human labor 
  4. Artificial Intelligence, Machine learning, and smart machine applications decrease the scarcity of skilled, knowledge workers
  5. Simplification of the supply chain reduces the need for human intermediaries and interactions between process flow

Data-driven leadership become the ultimate game-changer for the future

Data-driven leadership and culture are becoming increasingly important as business leaders are using data to support business decision-making—in marketing, business development, management, hiring, operations, production, risk management, etc.—with accurate data.

Just aspiring to be data-driven is not enough

Leaders in an organization need to take concrete steps to develop cultures in which a data-driven mindset can flourish.

Emerging technologies such as cloud computing, 4G/5G, biotechnology, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, robotics, and automation have demolished 52% of the value of Fortune 500 companies since 2010. (Source: The Myth of Destructive Digital Disruption, Medium)

In the current post-COVID-19 environment, consumer demands and preferences are ever-changing. Companies that have successfully transformed themselves digitally have done so because they have rapidly adapted and adopted digital innovation.

It’s paramount for your organization to keep your workforce up-to-date with digital transformation and technology innovation.

How do you keep your workforce up-to-date with digitalization and accelerate Digital Transformation post #COVID19?
