We are living in exponential times. The nature of work is changing. Change is a constant. Quick adaptive responses are needed. Do you have the skills needed to adapt and respond quickly?
To manage and shape the future; and to capitalise on this driving force of change, a key skill will be creativity.
The World Economic Forum’s ‘Future of Jobs Report’ predicts creativity, innovation and ideation will be key skills for the workforce of the future. These so-called ‘soft skills’, which sit alongside analytical thinking and problem-solving, will replace manual tasks that become automated. The neglect of these so called ‘soft skills’ will impact heavily on how these industries manage and shape the future. It will impact on their flexibility to adapt to rapid change, and to keep up with these changes.
The ability to develop novel and new products, processes, services and delivery mechanisms that create new value and added value is critical to an organisation’s sustainability and viability. If they want to survive the change, these skills should be part of the toolkit that they equip their workforce with. (Future of Jobs Report, published by the World Economic Forum).
