A presentation to GroWQ, March 2021

Paul presented to GroWQ, a not for profit organisation dedicated to economic development in North West Queensland

His key points were:

  • Organisations and communities have to hold, multiple pictures in their heads and act as signs of change emerge that point in one direction or another.
  • We can better at anticipating change but must not rely on predictions.
  • The future world will be dominated by changes to automation, electrification of everything, intelligence, organisation (collaboration) and uncertainty. 
  • Lots of things are being commoditised and these will help us build new ways of doing things.
  • New organisational models are emerging that help us in thinking about the future and strategy.
