Lesson 7: Conclusions

The documentary concludes with some thoughts on transformation. An important message is that individuals and organizations have to be adaptable – as Fiorina points out, “it is not always the strongest of the species that survives, it is the most adaptable.” Think about new technologies and their likely impact. Predict how an emerging technology will impact life and career. Formulate a strategy, not just for survival, but to flourish in The Transformation Age.
