|Technology has changed our world forever, but the disruption has only begun. Automation is changing the workplace, and machines are
replacing human jobs. These changes also disrupt the education system. The result is that advanced education, but not necessarily a four-year
degree, is a prerequisite for most jobs. Business requires workers educated in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
These degrees result in high levels of placement and provide many paths for career advancement. Entrepreneurship represents the path to
success for many people. This requires recognizing and taking advantage of opportunities.|
This book discusses how we get, process, and use information for decision-making. The first chapters address the process for individuals, including a method for assessing situations and making fact-based decisions. The second part covers power, what it is, and how to get it. It defines ways to know when others are using power to take advantage of you, and why. Because most of us will function as team members, the last sections address team formation and problem solving.
Book review by Chris N on August 5, 2016
It is said, "Change is the only constant in life." Or as the Greek philosopher Heraclitus put it, "No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it is not the same river, and he is not the same man."
In this fascinating book, Wayne Staley outlines the challenges facing today's Millennial generation - far-reaching social, economic, and political changes, driven by accelerating technological advances that are disrupting the very fabric and understanding of human social interaction and work.
Key to successfully navigating this changing landscape requires a personal ability to analyze a situation, make good decisions, and then take positive entrepreneurial action based on those decisions.
In layman's terms, Wayne lays out a simple process for making good decisions, both in one's own personal life, and in the context of work teams.
This book is a great overview and summary of a process that is often made overly complex, and provides a good foundation for anyone seeking to explore the subject further and develop their own decision-making skills.
