By Georg Vielmetter and Yvonne Sell
This book attempts to outline and analyse six megatrends that are shaping business and society now and in the immediate future. It examines what is changing between nations and attempts to analyse these into trends.
Vielmetter and Sell focus on six megatrends in terms of time, reach, and impact: Globalization 2.0; The Environmental Crisis; Individualism and Value Pluralism; The Digital Era; Demographic Change; and Technological Convergence.
The book also discusses the unique leadership challenges that these megatrends pose.
There will be debate around whether their predictions will come to pass.
The book is a dry read that took me many attempts to complete enough to review. It is not your usual leadership text, but rather a text for the analysis’s businesses employ to help shape company direction. For these selected few it will provide input for an businesses medium to long term planning.
Not one for the average person.
