Leadership Development Programme: Part 1 - TIDES of Change

The recent financial crisis has been more than just an economic downturn. Major shifts are taking place in almost every industry around the world as new rules for success and failure are written. To be successful in these turbulent times, it is vital for organisations and individuals alike to understand the forces that are shaping the near future. Uncertainty is causing paralysis in many industries, and the antidote is not a crystal ball or bravado. Rather, it is the quiet confidence that can come with understanding the ebb and flow of key defining forces in the world outside your immediate industry.


IoDSA, in partnership with TomorrowToday, highlights the finding of five forces that will disrupt industries in the next decade – Technology, Institutional Change, Demographics, Environment and Ethics, Social Values – TIDES.
