Convergence is here. Each day the human race becomes more connected and interdependent. There is no longer a choice in the matter. There is no turning back.
Convergence, is the clarion call we need. In this hyper-relevant book, you’ll discover the urgent necessity to orient business and technology with a human-centric perspective. Facing the potential for a historic integration or catastrophic collision, leaders have two clear choices: remain committed to profits above all else; or shift to a human-centric approach that embraces this convergence.
All aspects of human life are rapidly converging at an intersection of people, business, and environment. With potential for either a historic integration or catastrophic collision, leaders have two clear choices: remain committed to profits above all else; or shift to a human-centric approach that embraces this convergence.
We are at an inflection point. Technology has the power to connect every human on the planet. Disruptions are happening at an accelerating pace. And every singular decision has wider consequences than ever before for our businesses, environment, economies, social causes, and individual lives.
With rapid-fire, complex shifts comes a need to re-evaluate and dispose of some of the most fundamental tenets of traditional business thought and praxis. The businesses that succeed in this time of rapid change will be those that keep people at the center of their attention, decisions, and investments.
Deborah Westphal, a leader in future-focused strategy, leverages her experiences working with some of the world’s most innovative business leaders, to show how the interests of people (as human beings, not customers), overlap with those of companies in ways never before seen. Convergence charts the path forward for those leaders―particularly in business―who seek to shift to a human-centric mental model. This approach addresses realities from our converging world not necessarily related to a company’s business operations, often integrating a tangible response with a change in the company’s core values. Simply put, to be human-centric prioritizes the success of people and redefines success for a company.
