Fit For the Future


The Skills for the Future

In the 20th century, leaders identified goals for their organisation, described the jobs required to meet those goals, and hired people with the right skills to fill those job descriptions. That's no longer the case. Our world is changing so fast that neither goals nor roles are clear and well-defined. The skills needed for success in the future aren't technical, task-oriented skills – because those skills will become obsolete through automation and artificial intelligence. Instead, the most future-proof skills will be higher-order thinking skills.
