Ideas & Trends 2013

The 2013 seminar was the fourth in the series. The team worked to anticipate the issues that will confront them ten years hence when they are established in their careers and personal lives. The question posed, “What will the future look like in ten years?” was the catalyst for an examination of potential high profile issues including those affecting commercial, geopolitical, environmental and others. The team experimented with a mind mapping application to help organize their work. While the mind mapping experiment was largely ineffective the experience provided the team with an opportunity to work in that environment. The reading list for the class of 2013 included Poke The Box (Seth Godin) and Innovator’s DNA (Clay Christiansen). The team delivered its report (see video below) to the Leadership Council in April 2013.
