    • The Future of Work
      We stand in the midst of one of the greatest revolutions in organisations and work the world has ever seen. The forces that are shaping our work, our organisations and institutions are becoming ever more apparent as their velocity increases. The trajectory of these forces is unknowable - with future scenarios ranging from the most optimistic to the downright bleak. In this elective we explore these key themes. First, how the context of work and organisations will be shaped by the forces of globalisation, technology, demography, societal changes and resource constraints over the coming decades and the opportunities and challenges this creates. Then we consider the impact this will have on organisations and ecosystems of knowledge and talent, and the role of the company in the community and in society. Finally, we take a closer look at what this means for leadership and for you as you develop your own ideas about how best to prepare for the future.
