Georg Vielmetter and Yvonne Sell, co-authors of Leadership 2030: The Six Megatrends You Need to Understand to Lead Your Company into the Future, recently met with the AMA Edgewise podcast team to share their analysis of the six megatrends shaping the future of business.
Leaders must adapt to the ever-changing global climate in order to survive, and to do so they have to recognize these factors. Georg and Yvonne discuss the new wave of globalization, the environmental crisis affecting the whole world, the increasing demand for individualization, the boom in digitalization in more social aspects than ever before, the demographic shift in the workplace, and finally, the technological convergence of expanding fields such as nanotechnology and cognitive sciences.
