We live in hyper-connected world of accelerated change. Where tomorrow becomes today faster than at any time in history. Threats and opportunities that may have been on a 20-year horizon now appear and disrupt in a matter of months.
We believe technology is the driving force behind this accelerated change. Technology connects us, allowing greater collaboration. Innovations happen faster and when they do, they spread.
Technology has democratised knowledge. Combined with exponential falls in cost, it has opened up innovation to a greater population than ever before.
And technology creates competitive tension. Successful innovations have to be replicated or bettered. Even between adjacent markets and experiences, expectation spreads.
This is the context in which we developed our approach to Applied Futurism.
Built Through Experience
The futurist's toolkit has been developed through engagements with a huge range of organisations, including:
Our experience of service in one context affects our expectation of service in every other, without boundaries between public and private.
The amplitude of changes in this era may be lower than in the last industrial revolution. But their frequency is much greater.
Wherever there is great asymmetry between evidence volume and decision complexity, there is a role for a machine.
The suspect headlines about millennials wanting more than money from work, may prove to be true. And they may find a way to achieve this dream.
The better we can express ourselves, the higher the bandwidth of our future interactions, whether they are with people or machines.
