Technologies change exponentially; businesses evolve more slowly. The growing gap is an expanding universe of opportunity. Fundamental shifts in politics, climate, and society are everywhere. Forecasts of Utopia vie with predictions of apocalypse. Brands and entire industries rise up and disappear seemingly overnight. AI and robotics already outperform humans in skilled fields such as law, medicine, journalism and finance. Chief Marketing Officers are becoming Chief Growth Officers. Bots and voice interfaces are the new normal. Privacy no longer exists. Pandemics and environmental uncertainties change behaviours, at scale. People today are more easily manipulated, and more ready to try something new, than ever before.
