Futureproof Your Business
Who would have thought, just ten years ago, that today there’d be thousands of newly set-up small businesses across the UK making money by writing apps for smartphones, engaging on behalf of their clients on social media or delivering all manner of goods bought online?
Ten years from now, where will the new businesses be coming from? Will it continue to be technology driven, with virtual- and augmented reality glasses replacing TV screens, blockchain disintermediating giants like Uber and Airbnb as well as government registers? Will there be a new focus on health tech – and will small businesses be able to get involved, or will the R&D expenditure involved fence off the opportunities for only the largest corporates? Will consumers in the West prefer to spend money on experiences rather than things?
Time for some blue-sky thinking. Time to get away from the day-to-day grind of running your business and think about how your business could look in 2027 in a world of rapidly evolving technologies. Time to think what they will mean for you, your employees and your customers. We need to face up to several grand visions of the future, and consider how likely they are to come true.
