Despite the challenges of 2011, let us not forget that we have as many, if not more, opportunities ahead of us. We have many choices. Perhaps the biggest test we face is in developing the capacity to look beyond short-term pressures to make sense of change – and to take action today. Looking ahead, it will not be business as usual, or society as usual. We will have to question how we think, work together and act to seize opportunities and address challenges. We need a point of view on the future, a way to move from data overload to informed action. Executives today spend too much time looking at the world from inside their business and responding to short-term pressures. Understanding our current and future reality requires inverting this lens and looking from the outside-in. Frameworks such as the one developed by Luis Gallardo help business managers to make that sense of change. Tracey Keys, Director of Strategy Dynamics Global Limited, publisher of www.globaltrends.com
