Every industry is in the process of being affected—if not transformed—by the fourth industrial revolution, and the pace of change continues to accelerate as its scale expands. This is the book everyone is talking about at Davos. Professor Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, has been at the centre of global affairs for over four decades. Schwab is convinced that the period of change we are living through is more significant, and the ramifications of the latest technological revolution more profound than any prior period of human history. He has dubbed this era the fourth industrial revolution.
Following on the heels of the third revolution, defined by the rise of technology and automated production, the fourth revolution reflects the rapidly blurring boundaries between humans and machines. It will affect the very foundations of our society: economic growth, education, financial systems, geosecurity, global trade, health, poverty, and much more.
To win in this new business environment, where entire systems of production, distribution, and consumption are transforming before our eyes, a change in mind-set is needed. What got companies where they are now will not necessarily serve them well going forward. The status quo is no longer a comfortable place to be.
