Time Travel 9 novembre 2011
Par nenevinay - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
My experience tells me that is hard to figure out history in business. And here comes a work that vividly portrays future! I am amazed that there are organizations out there which forecast their businesses to 2050...let me get this right, we are still in 2011. Through her research and simple presentation, Lynda grabs the attention of audience (did I say audience instead of readers) in describing the details of how the future might be. Her points on serial mastery have struck a chord with my personal life preferences, and am already seeing a few around me who think they might go through some such thing. But our discussions have been really vague until we read this word, 'serial mastery'. I do not know if I am happy that there is a word to what we were discussing, or that it is actually what everyone seems to (might) prefer in the future.

There are two things this book did to me. First, it made me write a review and send it a journal for publication. Second, it changed the way I look at the businesses today. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in studying entrepreneurship, human resources management, general management, and all others who are just enthused to learn how it might be to time travel to see future sitting in present.

An useful read. 5 avril 2013
Par Fernando Augusto López Plascencia - Publié sur Amazon.com

An interesting read. As with all books dealing with futurology, Gratton's predictions have to be taken with a grain of salt - but then again, she's the first one to advise that. All in all, the reading of this book has truly helped me have a clearer understanding of the forces that are shaping our future right now. A must for any professional.

Pessimistic assumptions give optimistic conclusions for few people! 19 juin 2013
Par Fab - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The author starts from the following assumptions:

1) The Western political class will always be inept because it is only interested in re-election in the short term.

2) The world of finance will always cause the good and the bad weather because she thinks that the financial crisis will be even more pronounced and even the salaries of managers of large corporations are likely to rise disproportionately.

3) Water, Energy and Earth will be increasingly limited resources because world population is expected to increase more and more.

4) Knowledge world becomes increasingly digital, so there will be more and more knowledge workers who carry out their work from home thanks to the rapid expansion of digital technologies and also because since human moves will become increasingly expensive because of soaring energy prices and then this kind of career choice will become a must.

Hence, she comes to the conclusion that only those who have advanced expertise (intellectual type) will be able to have really interesting jobs, more than decently paid and in so doing they will be also able to have a private life quality.

On point 1) it must be said that since Lynda Gratton teaches at the London Business School (that builds people who will work for large and medium-sized private corporations) she completely ignores the fact that if politics was not funded by private sectors, it wouldn't have any conflict of interest and thus it may operate on a much broader time perspective of the short term!

She also ignores mysteriously that as well as the managers of private companies receive specialized education quality, the same should happen for managers of local governments of a Western nation that should be seriously trained in special schools.

Then once the manager has done well in a public place, he/she could make a career as a national politician! This should be the rule and not the exception!

But such arguments remain unknown to the author, who knows why ...!

On point 2) it is very clear the conflict of interest because the top recruiters of the London Business School for the finance sector is made up of "'crème de la crème'" of the world of finance (Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, UBS, Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse Citi, Barclays, Deutsche Bank, Bank of America Merrill Lynch) that only caused financial disasters with the universal banking business model introduced following the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act, which had set very wisely the separation between commercial banking and investment banking!!

On point 3) it must be said that if the German Aerospace Center estimates that solar energy in the deserts of North Africa is sufficient to provide 40 times the current demand for electricity in the world and if a researcher David Wheeler of the Center for Global Development found that Africa has 9 times the solar potential of Europe and the annual equivalent of 100 million tons of oil, then some serious doubt about the assumptions of this point arises spontaneously!

Apart from these facts, it is estimated that cities consume 75% of world energy. Luckily, there are also 'green' exceptions. Thanks to eco-sustainable projects, use of alternative energy and clean transport 10 cities have won the distinction of the most environmentally friendly cities in the world:


But as the Professor Gratton believes that the Western political class must be inept by definition because it is only interested in re-election in the short term, then it becomes utopian to have valid managers in public administration who can and want to apply locally the "Best Practice" as those mentioned above!

On the contrary, it should be the norm!!

Among the top recruiters of the London Business School in the industry sector there is also Shell that still makes the most of its profits from oil.

What a strange coincidence ..!!

On point 4) it must be said that if the e-learning will become the business of the future for public and private institutions that provide education and training, then this is a consequence of the business and not the cause!!

Apart from that, on this point Professor Gratton assumes that there will be inevitably a sharp rise in energy prices that will determine that the cost of human movements will become more and more expensive.

But it is her personal opinion because the technologies and the means to make cities more environmentally sustainable are already there!!

As for her conclusion that only an intellectual elite who has advanced expertise will be allowed to have really interesting jobs, more than decently paid and in so doing they will be also able to have a private life quality, we must say that to assume the disappearance of the middle class in Western societies (hourglass economy even more pronounced) is historically a very short-sighted way of thinking because nations thrive when the middle class has its own importance and not in cases where the middle class is totally neglected and becomes increasingly smaller!!

But Professor Lynda Gratton is not interested at all, in fact she does not talk at all about an urgent and profound reform of the educational system of Western countries giving as examples the best practices of countries such as Finland and Poland because she starts from the incorrect assumptions that Western political class will always be inept by definition, it is normal that there will be increasingly financial crises, salaries of managers of private corporations will be higher and higher, etc. ..!

In conclusion, pessimistic assumptions give optimistic conclusions for few people when in fact few assumptions based on common sense could give optimistic conclusions for many more people !!

A book in this sense highly recommended could be:

Make you think 9 mars 2013

I bought this book and did not know what to expect from it, but for sure not an exact prediction. I found it tries to classify factors in some way that will help each of us to make a prediction. I liked the format and thought it was usefull.

Good synthesis of others' work 11 juin 2012
Par Coach Brock - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is a good review of great work by several sociologists that have focused on this area, making those research materials accessible for university students in the UK.
