Outlining five urgent global issues facing the world today and their implications. Asymmetry, disruption, age, polarisation, and trust.
It has become apparent that the long-term phenomena of the Megatrends are already upon us. Governments, organisations and society are all struggling with the near-term manifestations of these trends and looking for answers. We are helping our clients to focus on these challenges using a framework we have called ADAPT.
The world is complex and difficult to understand and the risk is that we are paralysed by the complexity. This framework is a way of analysing and thinking about these issues in a way that allows people to take positive action.
While you could interrogate ADAPT and emerge feeling overwhelmed, we see huge opportunities in these challenges. Not least, the opportunity to reframe the way you see the world and take action to drive towards a positive outcome for yourself, your organisation and the society of which you are a part.
We hope you are similarly inspired by the potential, and we hope you will join us in acting upon it.
Blair Sheppard, PwC Global Leader for Strategy and Leadership, discusses the issues associated with ADAPT | Duration 13:29
“The ADAPT framework summarises extremely urgent issues confronting society, business and individuals that are acute, divisive and for which there are no easy answers. Yet we must act on them now or we will face a future which we will not like”.
