December is a month to think about. It is a time to reflect on how the year has gone, what we have done and what we have missed. But it is also time to look to the future and meditate on the year ahead and those to follow...
What will happen in our companies in the coming years? We are immersed in an industrial revolution led by technologies such as augmented reality, artificial intelligence or robotization, and there is uncertainty in our organizations when it comes to tackling the technological challenges that lie ahead.
Some studies tell us that 47% of jobs will disappear in 10 years and that robots will go from occupying 10% of industrial tasks to 45% in the next decade. These are scary figures, but we are not giving you new information. One example: today only 1% of professions remain as they were a century ago.
This industrial revolution will not diminish jobs, but will demand an adaptation of people's roles in companies and new professions will emerge.
So what does all this mean? CHANGE. That word that makes us so afraid. That word that forces us to step out of our comfort zone and take a path that we did not know before.
Our society is becoming more and more globalised, we people are moving from one end of the world to the other naturally and technology has been democratised until it is in the hands of the vast majority of the population. So what is the role of people in this technological revolution?
Human ideas are what make technology work, and the actions that machines perform arise from human-made programming. Therefore, for machines to move forward, people's minds and hands will always be needed.
Now more than ever, the person becomes the main asset of organizations. And if there is one thing that differentiates us from people and technology in a significant way, it is consciousness and emotions.
Robots make decisions based on rational aspects, but people incorporate more than factors and probabilities into the process of choosing, they are emotional beings, with conscience and ethical and moral values.
We are the people who establish the rules of the game in this technological revolution. Although technology advances, there will always be a valuable space for the knowledge we can contribute.
If one thing is clear, it is that the next few years are full of opportunities for the development of people and organizations. Let's take advantage of them!
People are the best technology ever developed and we will be able, for the time being, to design, develop and build the world we want.
