Raging forest fires, devastating earthquakes, and rapidly diminishing glaciers occur much too frequently today. Global megatrends—such as rapid urbanization, demographic and social change, and climate change—are evolving too rapidly. All of these events indicate that the way we live and do business must change dramatically. Only those organizations that recognize global mega-trends and plan for a changing world will be the market leaders of the future.
Now is the time to take action alongside other leaders. Together we can acknowledge, understand, and address these megatrends with more strength.
