The Future of Transport
Social Transport – Uber meet Tinder
There’s a lot of talk about how the self-drive taxi will be a game changer as it dramatically lowers the costs of taxis.
That will no doubt be true but there are other, maybe more important factors at play, in particular true “ride-sharing” where strangers share vehicles “on-the-fly”. This will be the real game changer. Read my full article on LinkedIN.
The Future of Work
Everybody has an interest in how this plays out and make no mistake there will be winners and losers.
The “unprotected” are not happy – think Trump, Brexit.
There’s been a couple of recent local television shows on this topic that are worth watching (with your kids).
“Students “will assemble a best-of-breed degree themselves: this bit from Adelaide University, that bit from Harvard, this bit from Helsinki, that bit from Stanford. They may have a few components from the CPA’s or the ICA. A third party will verify the veracity of all of the components and “rate” the degree.”
During their four years, students complete 20-25 projects. They spend about four-fifths of their time in teams and combine ideas from different disciplines, for example biology and history in a course entitled “Six microbes that changed the world”. Richard Miller, Olin’s president, argues that projects strengthen recall and hone communication skills.
I’ve been reflecting a lot recently about how to frame up a better approach to managing people and keep coming back to sport as a useful analogy. In particular Australia’s Football League (AFL) has become dramatically more professional and competitive in the past 10 years.
I gathered all of those thoughts into this LinkedIn post which I know has been well received.
