About the course
We live in turbulent times – that much is obvious. But it’s a lot more than just an economic downturn or political upheaval that’s causing it. We are living at a moment in history when all the forces of change are combining to produce an era-changing period. The political, corporate, social and personal rules for success and failure are all being rewritten. To survive and thrive in these uncertain times, it is essential to develop an understanding of the forces that are reshaping your industry’s landscape and your personal world. Based on detailed research into macro-economic, political and social trends, this program will help you do just that – by focusing on five key disruptive forces that are going to change the way we live and work in the next decade. You’ll also gain confidence in your own ability to identify key areas of change in your own world and career, and be equipped to contribute to the strategic success of your team and your organisation.
