BUSINESS AS UNUSUAL
‘If you change the way you look at things, the thing you look at changes’. Wayne Dyer
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Robotics combined with a tsunami of disruptive technologies have taken centre stage in the business world. Industry, companies, individuals and the world at large will experience change on a scale never seen before in human history. In our ‘Exclusive Interview’ on page 10, Noreena Hertz underlines that technology is guaranteed to continue its disruptive course. “If you thought the past decade was disruptive, you ain’t seen nothing yet”, she says. In his new book ‘Deep Thinking’ Garry Kasparov (page 1) shares his story of experiencing and embracing Artificial Intelligence. Another remarkable book ‘Yoga for Leaders’ written by Stefan Hyttfors provides a unique perspective for understanding and managing such change.
Naturally, we have also focused on the tremendous geo-political and societal changes happening in our complex world and what risks and opportunities are lying ahead of us; see some subtle comments by the former NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen on page 14.
Please enjoy this issue with its remarkable contributions by some of our leading thinkers. They weave together an inspiring narrative to prepare for the changes ahead.
