By 2030, as many as 375 million workers (circa 14% of the global workforce) may need to switch occupational categories as digitization, automation, advances in artificial intelligence and other technologies disrupt the world of work. The skillsets required will shift with profound implications for career paths. (McKinsey)
In the immediate two years 10-50% of the workforce will be impacted by technology. (KPMG)
Ginny Rometty, IBM’s CEO, says that “Artificial Intelligence will change 100% of jobs in the next 5-10 years”.
The global market for AI is projected to grow to avalue of $89.9 billion by 2025. When you consider figures like that, it’s easy to see how AI could transform the future of work.
The number of tasks which AI cannot complete is shrinking rapidly and 32% of current jobs worldwide will see significant changes in the way they are carried out (OECD).
We have seen the astonishing pace of technology developments such as artificial intelligence, AR, VR, voice driven apps, blockchain, genetic analysis, robotics, IOT, big data and many others, which are constantly reshaping businesses and entire industries.
In an environment shaped by rapid technology and to remain competitive, businesses will increasingly require informed, innovative and future-focused leaders with relevant skillsets.
If businesses cannot change quick enough current predictions indicate 1 in 6 companies will fail in the next 5 years as a result of not adapting to rapid and radical change (PA consulting).
The era of disruption is reminiscent of a time once described by American futurist Alvin Toffler in which people who are unable to learn, unlearn and relearn – the ‘illiterates of the 21st century,’ in his parlance – would most likely be left behind. Thus, workers of the future are faced with the challenge to keep evolving to stay relevant.
In this phase of change we may begin to see a new phenomenon called “technological refugees”.
