Prominent futurist Bob Johansen’s forecasts emphasize that he doesn’t intend to predict the future. Instead, he aims to provoke actionable insight. His tech forecasts suggest likely future changes for your industry, your firm and yourself. Johansen examines five broad skill areas or “literacies” leaders will need in a connected future of distributed decision making and constant disruption, and tells you how to prepare now. On the downside, he makes up incomprehensible labels for the things he describes, loves jargon and doesn’t mention machine learning. Otherwise, his observations and advice make sense and will help those hoping to be ready for future leadership challenges.
