Life, society, and business in flux

The world is increasingly subject to significant change. While the focus is often on the potential implications of exponential technology developments – like AI, robotics, adaptive manufacturing, AR, and VR – political, economic, social, environmental, and regulatory changes are also happening at break-neck speed.
These future forces act on life, society, and business, and add to our personal and organisational sense of complexity and uncertainty. In the past, we have been fairly confident in our predictions and have been able to come to consensus about the way ahead. Now, we are far from certain how the world beyond our organisation is evolving and are less able to reach consensus on how to proceed.
This radar, designed by futurist Steve Wells, explores future change factors and provides insight into how we might work on reinventing the future of life, society, and business.
