Just as the 20th century only truly began when events in 1914 ignited World War I, the 21st century begins with the arrival of COVID-19. The Great War toppled the existing order, the future was up for grabs, and the decisions made over the next three decades triggered crisis after crisis before eventually leading to a more prosperous world. COVID portends a similar sea change.
In this report, Tim O’Reilly shows how to prepare for this cloudy future through scenario planning, a discipline for building strategies that are robust in the face of large-scale uncertainty. What institutions are likely to disappear altogether? What might rise to fill the void? What technologies might bend the curves? Pick up this report and learn how to navigate this time of crisis.
