Prof. Anil Gupta discusses the six major global trends that will fundamentally reshape the world in the coming decade. Business leaders must gain insight-advantage by grasping the global mega-trends and game changers of the next decade.
The six megatrends that will drive this transformation, according to Anil Gupta:
• Restructuring of the global economy;
• Growing volatility and risks;
• Divergent demographics;
