To live in the world today is to experience accelerating change and to watch a future we had scarcely imagined unfold at a pace we’ve never experienced. And to not only survive but thrive in this context, it’s not enough to simply know what’s coming. You have to understand how the pieces fit and how emerging risks, evolving possibilities, and proliferating connections open new opportunities for those who can imagine them. You’ll learn to spot weak signals, and how to capitalize on the change we are all experiencing by thinking beyond it. Because if you only set your sights on what’s coming next, you’re already too late.
