The future we are approaching will no longer resemble the yesterdays on which we once confidently made our long term plans.
Instead, the future is what we will make from the unexpected shifts, now a fixture in our digitised world that moves in increasingly unprecedented ways.
(Re)making your future is the art and process of adaptive transformation.
Transformations are redesigns with the aim of achieving future outcomes through new solutions. Adaptive transformations are the redesigns that mine changes for opportunities.
Transformations that are focused on future management use five key approaches to tap into our current socialised, hyper-connected, technology-driven environment to solve existing and emerging user problems, pivot from unprofitable models, stabilise churn and recover from disruption, and to leverage existing assets into new revenue streams.
From the internal culture to innovation to user experience, social-centred business is people working together to meet the needs and wants of people.
Begins with mindset (growth, adaptive, futurist and digital) and follows with decisive action.
When every business problem today is either triggered by digital technology or solved by it, digital transformations can make or break future success.
Turn vision, purpose and values into powerful tools for building confidence, efficiency and cohesion, and deepening engagement with your stakeholders.
Broad input and multiple perspectives enable agility and adaptability and guard against bias, homogeneity and over-confidence.
Bring your desired future forward and reap value from new opportunities…in as few as 90 days.

A future management-focused transformation is (like all forms of management) a shared approach to using skills, knowledge, techniques, systems and methodologies to achieve specified outcomes -: in this case realising a desired future.
Do you ever wonder why your career isn’t moving the way you expected? Or do you worry that your skills are losing relevance as technology advances? Are you missing a sense of purpose and meaning in your work?
The Michelangelo Project, authored by Meta Management founder Isabel Wu, answers these any many more of the questions that keep people up at night when they think about the future of work. The book traces the evolution of work through its modern beginnings to the digital century to explain how outdated models are leaving people behind. This best seller is described as a “transformative manual” for people who want to escape the oblivion of a dead-end job and transition to a career fit for the digital age. It focuses on the importance of personal empowerment and provides readers with effective methods for doing work that not only provides a paycheck but offers emotional satisfaction and its long-term benefits.
