Learning to Unlearn

Education must adapt to the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The most advanced countries in the world are all facing the challenge of retraining several generations of workers who are becoming obsolete. The education system has failed them because it hasn’t evolved to respond to the advent of the Digital Revolution. It has prepared workers to meet yesterday’s challenges, not tomorrow’s demands. In Learning to Unlearn, Founder and CEO of Global Alumni, Pablo Rivas, an industry leader in digital education, shows us how the Digital Revolution is tearing down the traditional educational system and transforming the economy, building a brave new world for the 21st century. We already enjoy the best standards of living in human history, with better health, longer life expectancy, and access to the best tools and digital technologies. With freer societies and more global interaction, now is the time to rethink the way we learn how to solve the pressing problems we still face, re-engage those who have been left behind and build the world of tomorrow, not yesterday.

High Frequency Change

We are dizzy trying to keep up with the constant flood of newness across every aspect of our lives. And it's clear that some of our biggest companies are facing similar challenges. Each week another big brand name fails. Why is this?

Change is like a wave: it has both amplitude and frequency. The last century was about change of great amplitude, big waves washing over the whole society. But this century is about high frequency change: rapid, smaller waves, each powerful enough to disrupt an industry. This book explains how we can understand high frequency change, what drives it, and how we must respond by changing the way we run our organisations - and our lives.

The Business of Getting Business

The internet is shrinking the world; local brick and mortar businesses are finding more competition than ever before, primarily from ‘out of towners’ who conduct their business online.

So how does a local business compete in a world that has gone digital? The Business of Getting Business will educate and lead business owners to a different way of generating and converting business opportunities using digital marketing concepts and processes. It provides need-to-know information about digital marketing in easy-to-understand terms, so any business owner will walk away with a true understanding of what they need to do online to make their business succeed. Furthermore, it provides an implementation guide that runs through the specific technologies and the steps required to be productive with a digital marketing solution to build a better future.

Upgraded

The realm of the “personal” is now increasingly touched by technology – especially the Internet. For example, sleep is now something we do in between checking our smartphones. Our relationship to food and eating has changed too. Home delivery, restaurant search, table bookings – these have all been elevated to a high level skill-set which is part-entertainment, part-electronic processing. And travel is now a finger-clicking exercise with precision timing.
This readjustment of our daily routine has had one significant effect: it has taught individuals a range of skills that would normally be in the domain of businesses.  Ordinary people now behave as businesses do by using buying strategies to get costs down. We now have expectations of quality and delivery. In fact, we have become so business-like as individuals that marketers need to get rid of the processes of “Business-to-Consumer” communication, and begin to adopt the rules of “Business-to-Business” when talking to consumers. Such change of our lives is an explosion of the new – new thinking, new business, new relationships, new selling, new buying, new leisure, new humans.

Pax Japonica

Japan, the world's third largest economy and its largest creditor nation, has been in crisis for more than two decades. Its economy has been depressed or in recession in much of that period, its banking sector in a critical state, and its public sector burdened by recurring fiscal deficits and mounting debt. Today, the hegemonic role in global trade and financial markets has been assumed by the USA and China. Yet, this book argues that a possible future Pax Japonica - one in which Japan will overcome its paralyzing debt and once again play a leading role in global finance - can become a reality. Leading international strategist Takeo Harada provides new and astounding insight into Japan's hidden role as designated controller of large - often secret - funds kept for the purpose of rescuing humankind from ultimate disasters. For this reason, Japan's role in the global economy can never be under-estimated and remains critical to its progress.
