Interview With Prof. Dennis Campbell & Sharala Axryd.

What are the game-changers that will shape the future?

Policy Horizons recently published a report The Future of Work: Five Game Changers, where they list a list of five “game-changers, “which could transform work, the very character of the economy, and social programs underpinning the economy.

The “game-changers” include:

  1. Society shifting from long-term and time-based employment to short-term, temporary, and skill-based work.
  2. The location of people work and earn may not be the same as the location where they live and spend
  3. Robotics and automation dramatically reduce the need for human labor
  4. Artificial Intelligence, Machine learning, and smart machine applications decrease the scarcity of skilled, knowledge workers
  5. Simplification of the supply chain reduces the need for human intermediaries and interactions between process flow

Data-driven leadership become the ultimate game-changer for the future

Data-driven leadership and culture are becoming increasingly important as business leaders are using data to support business decision-making—in marketing, business development, management, hiring, operations, production, risk management, etc.—with accurate data.

Just aspiring to be data-driven is not enough

Leaders in an organization need to take concrete steps to develop cultures in which a data-driven mindset can flourish.
