Recommendation

This overview of the world’s most complex problems is required reading for anyone who wants to be prepared for just about any eventuality that could affect a business. Once a year, World Economic Forum researchers survey experts from around the globe on what they consider to be the most pressing challenges facing the world today. The interview results, along with existing research, provide a roadmap of risks and their interconnections across economies and societies. This report defines systemic risk, discusses emerging and current threats, and explains how these intersect within systems and networks. The study also offers ideas on how organizations can better prepare for the unknown. For such a complex and ambitious project, the text is exceptionally clear, and the report’s conclusions are useful and sobering. getAbstract recommends this telescope into the future to government planners, NGOs, financiers, futurists and investors.

  • How organizations can prepare to address and manage these risks.
