Technology has had many positive impacts on our lives—providing access to information and communication to those previously isolated, improving the efficiency of organizations and extending average life spans across the world. But, the speed and scope of change is at a level we have never seen before, and, so, people are struggling to keep up. The outcome could be negative for many people—job loss, greater wealth disparity, an erosion of trust and social fragmentation. The opportunity to use technology so that it works for the good of all of society is real. But, to do that, everybody needs to understand and be proactively engaged with technology: leaders, so that they can make good decisions; organizations, so they can transform themselves to compete; and individuals, so they can play an active role in society and hold those in charge to account. Flourishing in a digital world requires transformational change for businesses, governments and individuals so that no person is unwillingly left behind.
