Zone 1

Make Yourself Known

Everyone is visible – just about everywhere and all the time. What matters is what you do with your visibility and how you apply the art and science of reputation management. 

Zone 2

Befriend the Machines

Machines are getting smarter. Some of them will work with you. Sometimes you’ll work for them – of even in them. More and more, you’ll work side by side to get things done. Everyone will need to master human-machine collaboration. 

Zone 3

Build Your Tribe

You’re not born into a tribe anymore. You have to build your tribe as you make your way through life. And you do it by making things together via peer production, including fashion, tools, shelters, and…well…life!

Zone 4

Make Sense of Complex Systems

Everything is connected – and the connections are growing minute by minute. They create feedback loops, and the loops are getting faster and faster. Making sense is all about finding your path through those loopy, complex systems.

Zone 5

Keep It Going

The world is going through a rough patch. Lots of people are looking for basic shelter today, but also looking ahead to tomorrow – toward building a resilient, steadier future. 

90%

of CEOs expect this transformation to disrupt their company. And few are prepared – just 30% think their workforce is ready with the right skills.

To excel in the Skills Economy, employees must constantly exercise their learning muscle, and companies need to empower them with the tools to build and hone those skills.

“Every job will require some technology, and therefore we’ll need to revamp education. The K-12 curriculum is obvious, but it’s the adult retraining – lifelong learning systems – that will be even more important.”
