John Hagel and John Seely Brown and the Deloitte Center for the Edge have just published the second analysis of what they call "The Big Shift". The first report defined their Shift Index and analyzed the Big Shift long-term trends at the level of the entire U.S. economy. This new report analyzes those same trends at the level of 14 specific industries.
The new industry report is lengthy and I haven't digested the full report yet. But Hagel summarizes some of the key findings of the report in a post on his Edge Perspectives blog. Read his post to get a summary or follow the links in his post to download the full report.
All of the analysis of The Big Shift is thought-provoking and loaded with implications for public policy, entrepreneurship, leadership of existing enterprises, etc. Some of it helps explain trends and shifts that we've seen happening around us for quite a few years. Some of it is predictive relative to additional changes that need to happen as we move forward. Those who read the shift and whose timing is good in acting on the shift are likely to be big winners in the next stages of the evolution of our economy.
