  • Creative Innovation 2019 – Looking Back on the Conference that changes minds

    Ci2019 Reflections Paper

    Deep Conversation at Ci2019

    On 26 September 2019 the Committee for the Economic Development of Australia sounded an alarm.  The cause of its concern was Australia’s slipping in the ranking of 63 nations on the International Institute for Management Development (IMD)  World Digital Competitiveness Index[1].

    The Index compares digital competitiveness against three key overall criteria: knowledge, technology and future readiness.  While Australia slipped only one place in the overall survey, from 13th to 14th, CEDA warned that we were way down the rankings in more than a few key areas, including:

    • Agility of companies (45)
    • Communications technology (54)
    • Digital/technological skills and training (44); and
    • Graduates in sciences (53).

  • Digital Megatrends: A perspective on the coming decade of digital disruption

    CSIRO Data 61

    This report explores plausible futures using methods of strategic foresight pioneered at CSIRO’s Data61. We explore the coming decade of digital disruption through the lens of six interlinked megatrends using a Venn diagram to emphasise their interconnectedness.

    A megatrend is a significant shift in environmental, economic and social conditions that will play out over the coming decades. The concept was introduced by US professor John Naisbitt in his best-selling book of the same title in the early 1980s. Today’s megatrends are widely used by large organisations, particularly in the technology sector, to describe trajectories of change taking us toward a new and different future.

  • ‘Robots’ Are Not ‘Coming For Your Job’, Management Is

    Gizmodo

    Listen: ‘Robots’ are not coming for your jobs. I hope we can be very clear here—at this particular point in time, ‘robots’ are not sentient agents capable of seeking out and applying for your job and then landing the gig on its comparatively superior merits. ‘Robots’ are not currently algorithmically scanning LinkedIn and Monster.com with an intent to displace you with their artificial intelligence.

    Nor are ‘robots’ gathered in the back of a warehouse somewhere conspiring to take human jobs en masse. A robot is not ‘coming for’, or ‘stealing’ or ‘killing’ or ‘threatening’ to take away your job. Management is.

  • The Rich Kid Revolutionaries

    The New York Times

    This country is rigged in favor of making the very wealthy even wealthier. That’s what Democrats keep saying on the 2020 campaign trail. And it’s what some of the people who have reaped the rewards of this rigged system think too. Abigail Disney, granddaughter of Roy Disney, is one recent high-profile example. On Tuesday, she called out the “naked indecency” of the $65 million in compensation that goes to Disney’s chief executive, Bob Iger. That figure, she noted, is “1,424 times the median pay of a Disney worker.”
