Abstract

New ways of thinking are becoming ever more important. To deal with the fast pace of change fast pattern recognition becomes more important than the ability to analyse preconceived scenarios and historical datasets. CEOs are the people who have to create the future and shape the market and competitive forces to their advantage. They will need to employ people with different talents who see change as a challenge How to compete against fast-moving, innovative competitors 15 and can cope with it; who see competitors in emerging markets not as threats but as something to understand and potentially emulate.
