A major challenge for employers is to build an effective organization whose skills and talents are not only a good fit for today’s needs, but whose development and learning ongoing will equip it with the skills and knowledge needed for the jobs of the future, and those jobs will be markedly different from today’s! While it is hard for employers to know where to start in taking on this major challenge, we feel it will be helpful if employers start of by developing a view to what the future will look like, so they can start anticipating and preparing.
This article, Top 10 Emerging Technologies That Are Changing The World by Justin Dennis, can help employers develop such a view. It takes a very wide and high level look at emerging technologies that are changing the “rules of the game”; that will likely evolve rapidly over the next decade, markedly affecting markets, industries, communications and “how work is done.” It cites ten technology trends of very different types, but in total, paints a picture of the future that is exciting if perhaps a little intimidating.
We feel the article is not only fascinating but is a real eye-opener, that in a few short pages gives readers a valuable glimpse into where things are going, so they can ponder the kinds of jobs and people needed for their businesses to continue succeeding as time goes by.
