There has never been a more important time to understand the context and impacts of accelerated change.

According to Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist and Author Thomas L. Friedman, we are experiencing three simultaneous and interlocking climate changes. These accelerations are interconnected and reshaping our world. The climate of technology is driven by Moore's Law where capabilities are growing such anything mentally routine or predictable can be achieved by an algorithm. The climate of the market has gone from interconnected to interdependent where the rise and fall of our ally and enemy markets are interlinked. The climate of the climate is our natural environment where have passed the time of future remediation and must move towards changes to protect our planet and inhabitants today. Collectively these accelerations re-shaping our world are impacting working and learning, geopolitics, community, and ethics. My focus is on the reshaping of the workplace and related learning systems. My belief is that in a world of accelerating change, the future of work is continuous learning and adapting or as Friedman says "resilience and propulsion".
