The future starts now

Borderless business

The Covid-19 pandemic exposed the fragility of global supply chains and gave rise to a new way of thinking about globalisation. Yet, businesses overwhelmingly believe that expansion means internationalisation. The story of borderless business will be one of resilient, diversified supply chains, challenging companies to manage their finances and inventories across borders without stifling growth.

Inclusive automation

By 2030 a company’s reputation and subsequent ability to attract the best clients and talent will be judged by its ethical implementation of AI and automation technologies. Newer generations entering the workforce by 2030 will expect access to a suite of advanced tools that alleviate mundane tasks, enable efficient workflows, provide helpful nudges and support better planning.

Rise of the FLIT organisations

The combination of accelerated tech advancement and increased uncertainty in the world will favour more agile business models. To compete in this era, businesses will streamline processes and utilise automation to maximise their adaptability. In this agile market, creator economy workers will flock to FLIT organisations, characterised by their: Flexible workforce; Lean processes; Innovative business models; and Tech-driven operations.

The creative edge

Standing out in a generic world will become the key to business survival in 2030. Amid an increase in generic AI content and other emerging technologies, successful companies will be able to generate fresh ideas and stay one step ahead of the competition. Thriving companies will feel like research labs, devoted to creativity. They will foster an environment that nurtures innovation by giving employees the freedom to think differently.
