“The rules have changed. In a single generation, revolutions in technology have transformed the way we live, work and do business. Steel mills that once needed 1,000 workers can now do the same work with 100.
Just recently, China became home to the world’s largest private solar research facility, and the world’s fastest computer. So yes, the world has changed. The competition for jobs is real. But this shouldn’t discourage us. It should challenge us.”
-President Barack Obama, State Of the Union Address, 2011.
Are you ready to accept that challenge? What has changed in your sector? What has outpaced your business or technology? Where do you need to make adjustments in this changing world to remain competitive?
Is it time to reinvent yourself, like many others who are thriving in a different economy?
