The Future Reinvented: Reimagining Life, Society and Business
The second book in the Fast Future series, “The Future Reinvented”, explores how our notions of the future are themselves being reinvented. The authors challenge us to reimagine how life, society, key industries, and the conduct of business could be transformed by a combination of radical technological, scientific, social, and economic developments shaping the decade ahead.
“The Future Reinvented” offers unique snapshots of different aspects of a future in which the very tenets of reality are undergoing deep and vital transformations. The book is organised into three sections covering transformations in life and society, industries, and business, and presents holistic future scenarios that encourage strategic thinking about what lies beyond the hype.
Using a futurist perspective, “The Future Reinvented” offers glimpses of the future across a range of business sectors such as legal, automotive, and sales as well as in different areas of everyday life including retirement, education, and health. Readers are presented with vivid imagery which brings to life a number of different possible futures. These include workplace scenarios of people performing side by side with artificial intelligence or robotic colleagues; humans obtaining physical enhancements to become smarter, stronger, or more psychologically resilient; and strategies for how we might live in a “post-jobs world”.
The book provides a powerful foundation for futures thinking and scenario planning in both a personal and organisational context. The authors identify early warning signals and signposts of critical emerging changes and developments on the horizon that could shape the next future.
