A lot has been written about change. Change management. The pace of change. My friend John Spence wrote a nice piece about how one must deal with change in today’s marketplace.
We are entering a new era in the business world, what many people are calling the Second Machine Age, marked by mind-boggling advances in technology, computer learning, robotics, medicine and many other fields that will fundamentally change business on a global scale. As I see it, you really only have two choices: drive the change or be run over.
That’s heavy stuff. But I can’t disagree. Please read John’s article. He gives a road map on how to address change.
Change can be tiring. It would be wonderful be in an industry that moves along calmly. But as I look around, I can’t say that I see one that exists.
