Which people fail to take the step into the dynamics and complexity of the future and which manage it? These and other questions occupy many futurologists. In order for as many people as possible to make the leap, people’s future competence should be promoted, say Prof. Dr. habil. Heiko von der Gracht and Prof. Dr. Stefanie Kisgen from the School of International Business and Entrepreneurship (SIBE) at Steinbeis University. That is, people should be made aware of influencing factors in the present that will shape the future.
One of these influencing factors is technological developments, for example with regard to robotics and artificial intelligence. It is already possible to observe how these are changing the world of life and work. A fact that not only generates supporters, but also triggers fears.
In their current publication, Prof. Dr. von der Gracht and Prof. Dr. Kisgen describe the implications that technological developments can have and how fears can be classified in this context. The two academics address the future of the world of work in their article in the HR Consulting Review. In the anthology with more than 100 authors, they describe different scenarios of what work could look like in the world of tomorrow.
