The Future of Work to 2030 - Conclusions
None of us can know with any certainty what the world will look like in 2030,
but it’s very likely that facets of the Four Worlds will feature in some way and
at some time. Some sectors and individuals are already displaying elements of
the Blue and Green Worlds; the Yellow and Red Worlds are more radical, but
no less plausible.
Those organisations and individuals that understand potential futures, and
what each might mean for them, and plan ahead, will be the best prepared to
succeed.” (PWC. p.38).
