Less visibility than ever in modern history about where we are headed!

    constantly

  • Nuke Nostalgia

  • There are no perfect role models


Lessons of flux

Lessons of Flux

  • Institutions are increasingly out of date

  • Long careers are dead

  • The quest for business rules is dead

  • Don’t count on established business models or a corporate ladder to point the way

  • Silos between industries are breaking down


We have been here before

We have been here before

Industrial revolution gave way to global war, economic & political upheaval, “ism’s”, and cultural anxiety

Not all change will be good; optimists will react one way & pessimists another

“It’s not the strongest species that survives, or even the most intelligent. It is always the one adaptable to change.”

Charles Darwin
