Summary of this prize-winning book, that you can read in only 40 minutes. About the original book: For over twenty years sectors have been changing in the wake of digital disruption. Today banks, retailers, the media, taxi firms and so many other organisations are feeling the power of digitization and the challenges it brings. All sectors find themselves in their particular perfect storm, in which digital forces compel them to adopt a new position. But what if that’s just the beginning? What if seeking a future-oriented transformation plan solely in relation to your industry proves insufficient? What if the very core of our society changes, partially as a result of digitization, but also due to major issues related to the future of work, housing, mobility, the climate, healthcare, education, globalization, population growth and even people living longer? In The World is Round Jo Caudron searches for links between each of these social transformations. He ultimately concludes that they collectively form a Metastorm, an all-transcending series of interwoven perfect storms. The Metastorm will have an impact on every decision we take at the company, policy or individual level. The World is Round is an optimistic plea, for us to approach and tackle the problems holistically. If we succeed, the future awaiting us is definitely worth the effort.

Informazioni sull'autore

Born in Haarlem, Netherlands in 1961, and living there my entire life, except for a six-year ex-pat period on the lovely Caribean island of Curacao. Educated and trained to be a CPA, moved to IT auditing and subsequently to Internal Auditing. In 2008, working as Chief Audit Executive at a Dutch multinational listed company, I thought; "what now? I'm 47 and at the peak of a career in Audit". I started my own company, ESCIA, in 2019, and worked as a project manager and quartermaster on a wide range of different projects and companies, trying to find out what I liked best. It turned out to be......reading business books! Now, I'm focusing even more on books and trying to influence others to read (more) business books. My dream is that my summaries will inspire others to go and read the original books or in any case will open their minds to the ideas contained in those books. So many good books, so little time!

Short content of the original book: For more than twenty years, sectors have been changing because of digital disruption. All sectors are in their own storm where digital forces are forcing them to take a new position. But what if that is just the beginning?

This book draws the connections between each of these social transformations, concluding that together they
