Understanding How the Future Unfolds

Mark Esposito, PhD. & Terence C.M. Tse, PhD.

Your business’s success depends on how you prepare for the future. While business leaders of the past looked in the sideview mirror to predict the road ahead, we must now look at the greater forces affecting the social, business and economic world today–megatrends.

Fortunately, world-renowned scholars and professors Terence Tse and Mark Esposito are here with a fresh, holistic way to think about tomorrow by preparing for it today: DRIVE. The DRIVE framework examines five interrelated megatrends:

  • Demographic and social changes
  • Resource scarcity
  • Inequalities
  • Volatility, complexity, and scale
  • Enterprising dynamics

By observing today through the lens of DRIVE and understanding how megatrends influence one another, business owners, entrepreneurs, executives, policy makers and individuals can prepare for tomorrow. In this book, they will learn how to simplify the complexities around them, make better-informed decisions, and identify new business opportunities now. They will also discover how to prepare for uncertainty, own the global conversation, and illuminate the blind spots on the journey ahead.

With real-world examples from today’s top executives and policy advisors and in-depth analysis of each megatrend, DRIVE is the GPS system for the new global economy. So buckle up, set the destination, and let’s hit the road.
