It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine

 For those of you who were listening to radio and, yes, buying compact discs back in the 1990s, you may recognize the headline of this post as the title to an R.E.M song.  It also depicts what innovators and entrepreneurs should be thinking in the middle of this COVID epidemic.Don't get me wrong - we cannot celebrate as thousands of people are dying...

Innovation is a harsh mistress

I'm a big fan of science fiction.  There's really nothing more interesting to me than to think about how the future will unfold, and science fiction is a great way to project what may happen with society and technology in many different future settings.  I guess this is also why I always advocate for trend spotting and scenario planning.  If we can...

The important gap between capability and need

 I'll be writing occasionally for my friends at the Collective - a group focused on autonomy, mobility and the use of drones.  I think this group has an excellent opportunity to create new solutions and influence new products.  I've learned a lot this summer, especially about drones, because I bought one and started flying it, and my son interned with...

Predictions for a post-COVID world: US economy through 2025

Post-Covid Predictions: Mid-East unrest, digital transformation and lack of leadership

About a month ago I published a long look at the world post-COVID, a scenario I built from extending a number of trends, as well as examining some features and outcomes of past pandemics.  You can download and read the entire scenario and the top predictions.  In the following few weeks I am calling out a couple of the predictions or implications, to...

Post-COVID predictions - Resiliency/Repatriation/Rethinking boundaries

I've written and published a post-COVID scenario, which you can find on my LinkedIn page.  (Small hint - if you click on the document in my "Featured" section, then click on the "expand" icon in the lower right, the document is easier to read and you can also download from there).Following the scenario, I am writing a series of blog posts about some...

First 3 predictions for post-COVID world

I've just published a short paper on the likely future after COVID, and am exploring what the trend spotting and scenario development suggests to me.  We need to be spending time understanding the emerging future and preparing for it.  I've presented one version of the potential future in my paper, posted on my LinkedIn account. I'll be calling out...

What to expect in a post-COVID world

I've been working for the past two months on developing some scenarios that examine what may happen as the first bout of COVID peaks and begins to dissipate, hopefully in the summer of 2020.  I've long felt that trend spotting, scenario planning and understanding the implications of an emerging future is probably one of the best ways to plan for and...

Thriving in Volatility

I think it is important that we consider future competitive conditions as they are likely to be, not as we wish them to be.  Too many people are talking about "new normal", as if they know what the new normal will look like.  Just a few years ago, IBM moved almost all of its Raleigh staff from home offices to IBM buildings, with the argument that the...
