DE WERELD IS ROND
Het nieuwste boek van Jo Caudron
Sinds meer dan 20 jaar veranderen sectoren onder impuls van digitale disruptie. Banken, retailers, de media en zovele anderen, kunnen vandaag getuigen van de disruptieve krachten van digitaal en de digitale transformatie trajecten waarmee ze bezig zijn.
Maar wat als dit niet voldoende is? Wat als er zich ook perfecte stormen aandienen in onze maatschappij? Hoe gaan we daarmee om?
ABOUT THE BOOK
For more than twenty years, industries have been changing under the impulse of digital disruption. Today, banks, retailers, the media, taxi companies and so many other organisations are experiencing the power of digitisation and the challenges it poses.
All sectors are in their own storm, with digital disruptions forcing them to take up a new position. But what if that's just the beginning? What if it turns out to be insufficient to look a transformation, only from within their own industry? What if our society itself changes at its core, partly due to digitisation, but also due to major issues about the future of work, housing, mobility, climate, health, education, globalisation, population growth and even the challenges posed by living longer?
In this book, Jo Caudron searches for the connections between each of these social transformations. He comes to the conclusion that together they form a Metastorm, an all-transcending series of interwoven perfect storms. This Metastorm will have an impact on every long-term decision we make.
The world is round is an optimistic plea to approach and tackle problems holistically. If we succeed in doing so, a future that is more than worthwhile awaits us.
Jo Caudron has been active as a digital entrepreneur and transformation strategist for years. He has several books to his name, all of which are a source of inspiration for individuals, companies and policy makers in these times of transformation.
