Meet the Expert: Tim O'Reilly on Preparing for the Post-COVID Future

Video description

The future will not be like the past. We’re at an inflection point where the decisions our societies make now can have an enormous impact on the course of the next few decades. Those of us in business have difficult choices to make. And those choices have to be made with wildly uncertain futures in mind. We can no longer base our strategies on the old baselines of predictable consumer demand, globalization, office life and business travel, and access to talent, credit, or venture funding.

In this edition of Meet the Expert, Tim O’Reilly discusses what skills will be needed to plan for the new world and how scenario planning will help you develop a robust strategy that will hold up well against a range of possible outcomes. Learn how to better prepare for a post-COVID future as you explore the technologies that will be most important in the 21st century.
