Threats Opportunities and Solutions

Scale of change

We know that in this networked world this revolution will impact virtually everybody on the planet across all of societies activities and policies including education, commercial, public and even defence.

The global nature of the revolution and the advances in technology that have networked the world, means that no single society can totally control their employment market in isolation so they need to be able to react to external as well as internal influences.

The impact of automation and technological advances will fundamentally change not only the skills required in the World of Work but also the role that work plays in an individual’s and societies life. The good news is that this same technology that has created this revolution can also provide Society with the solution that allows it to benefit from the changes available.

Speed of change

While there are some differences in what individual researchers are predicting regarding exactly how quickly the changes will take place what they all agree on is that the revolution has already started and is gaining pace.

Unfortunately, it looks as though it is already too late to control the speed or direction of these chaotic changes. As such, it is misguided to concentrating on developing well researched, strategic approaches as by the time they are developed the requirement will have mutated leaving this approach impotent and irrelevant.

What we can do is to build up societies ability to respond dynamically, but not chaotically or in panic, to the opportunities and threats that will certainly happen.

Data, data, data...

By provide the right data quick enough to inform the dynamic tactical policy decisions then the chances of individuals and society benefiting from this revolution improve significantly.

Our solution makes this possible as a result of our policy where we capture the data once and then use the same data to inform a variety of decisions that the individual’s, educators and employers need to take. This system facilitates the pooling, aggregating and anonymising of the data to provide high quality macro data to inform social policy in real time.

We will also “future-proof” the solution data by tracking individual’s career and skills development journey to validate and update our predictive algorithms to ensure that we keep up to date and improving.

Attributes & transferable skills

While nobody knows exactly what knowledge and skills people are going to need in the future world of work, we do know some attributes and skills that will definitely be needed in virtually all roles.

We can identify these and provide advice and guidance on how to develop them further.

We also know that in this age of automation, technological tools will enhance, and in some cases replace, roles that humans play in the workplace and society as a whole. To benefit from the opportunities this presents will require individuals to be skilled in using life-long learning aids and be flexible, adaptable and resilient.

Individual and Societies productivity and wellbeing

The CAREER-FIT 5 step process aligns the objectives of the individuals, educators and employers. By providing a data driven career choice and skills development process we can improve the matching of people to opportunities based on their motivation and potential.

This alignment of goals and getting the right people in the right opportunity at the right time enables individuals, employers and society at large to revolutionise productivity and wellbeing.
