No company survives without predicting, adapting to, or innovating change. Stasis is fatal.
The world culture itself is suffused with technological enhancements to how work is done. Dramatic changes made to machines, to software, to the manner of communication that dominates and who dominates it; to the materials that are purchased and resources required, to the software and systems that must be built, bought, licensed and deployed – all these changes must be managed, anticipated and absorbed.
‘Talent’ is generally viewed as the totality of an individual – a quality that is somehow more than the sum of its parts. A singer sings, a talented singer gets to you. A coder codes, a talented coder makes tough problems look easy. A consultant guides you, a talented consultant makes you feel safe.
