PROGRESS IN ACCELERATION
Over a century to make the jump from steam power to electricity; another hundred years to go from mass production to automated production.
It only took humanity a few hundred decades to turn the gigantic computers of the 1970's into the learning and thinking robots of today.
The present fast-forwards to the future ... and the acceleration of progress is almost at the speed of light.
The environment has never been so turbulent as it is today, and businesses continuously face unprecedented changes and challenges that no longer come gradually but radically and relentlessly.
