About Future Thinking
Thought and creativity will become the individual’s most important assets as technology shapes a future with new ways of working, playing and connecting. The big shift will be the simplification and automation of mundane processes – whether on the factory floor, the construction site or the office. The employee of the future will be judged more on their thinking skills and creativity than their technical ability. Understanding the potential power of the brain and how it can be refined, will enable leaders to attract the best people and achieve the top results. The enterprise of the future will be valued on quality ideas to conceive and execute what a connected consumer wants and needs.
