"Jump the Curve" will show how exponential trends in eight areas - computers, data storage, bandwidth, software development, gene sequencing, robotics, nanotechnology, and the advance of knowledge itself - are transforming the global economy and altering our future. The book then proceeds in a easy-to-understand (non-technical) style to describe the eight essential elements that business executives and their organisations can - and must - incorporate into their planning in order to deal with today's explosive and emerging economy including: leveraging today's technology to meet tomorrow's needs; developing counter-intuitive thought skills; tapping into the power of diversity; and, "Learning to unlearn."While scores of books from "The World is Flat" to "The Tipping Point" have done excellent jobs of explaining the effect of accelerating technologies, "Jump the Curve" defines the nature of technological change itself and shows readers how they, and their organisations can benefit from the knowledge.
