The 4th Industrial Revolution - Executive Summary

The current time is a time of rapid change and constant disruption. Called the “4th Industrial Revolution” this turning point in history is about much more than ‘just’ technology and business innovation. Instead, it has far-reaching implications for practically all aspects of our society, including business, government, education, work, communities, and much more.
