Nel 2020 internet avrà trasformato il mondo intero in un’unica agorà. Potremo metterci in contatto ovunque e con chiunque, in qualsiasi punto del pianeta, senza muovere un passo. Tele-apprenderemo, tele-lavoreremo, tele-ameremo, ci tele-divertiremo. Un miliardo in più di persone saranno conquistate al benessere: produrranno, consumeranno, inquineranno di più. Avremo bisogno di energia, di acqua, di aria, di spazio. Per salvare il pianeta, avremo bisogno di creare nuove consapevolezze e nuovi equilibri. Come influirà tutto questo sulle organizzazioni? In quale misura la formazione dovrà tenerne conto? E come?

Lectio magistralis: Formazione e Economia
Chairman: Enrico Cisnetto
Nel 2020 le conquiste della medicina consentiranno ai cittadini del Primo Mondo di vivere in media 800.000 ore. Nella società dei servizi, la qualità e l'affidabilità delle prestazioni costituirà il primo vantaggio competitivo. Ogni individuo tenderà a diversificarsi il più possibile dagli altri per quanto riguarda i gusti, i bisogni, i comportamenti, i consumi. Gran parte delle professioni consisteranno in attività intellettuali dedicate al benessere e all’estetica propri e dei propri simili. La globalizzazione dell’economia sarà un fatto compiuto. La principale tentazione dell’economia sarà quella di prevaricare la politica e di farsi prevaricare dalla finanza. Il suo problema più complesso sarà di natura meta-economica: come ridistribuire il lavoro, la ricchezza, il potere e il sapere.
Come influirà tutto questo sulle organizzazioni? In quale misura la formazione dovrà tenerne conto? E come?
