Today, it feels like the business world is changing dramatically faster than any other time in history.
People are worried about Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and when all our jobs will disappear.
Data is available everywhere and impacting decision-making like never before. It's interesting. Are we confused about our role, as humans, in the future of commerce?
Change is required. We cannot sit back and watch. More is required from us if we want to compete in this exciting new future. But how? Learning. Gaining knowledge that's valuable in this new world. The simple fact is that technology is already replacing low-paying roles and will continue to climb up the skill ladder.
This is no different to what has happened before us. We need to step up our learning to stay ahead. This required 'retraining' will accelerate the modern polymath.
