Our friend Pavel Luksha, founder Global Education Futures and professor at Moscow School of Management, has a new report out on what graduates should know and be able to do. Skills of the Future: How to Thrive in the Complex New World was developed with WorldSkills Russia during sessions of the Atlas of Emerging Jobs project. The report is a thoughtful review of global trends, changes in work and concludes with implications for education.
The report includes a competent 30 page summary of what’s happening in tech and society with a good discussion of environmental risks. Compared to American reports on the #FutureofWork, this one considers broader factors and urges a “switch to a more complete understanding of the Earth’s ecosystem, the role played by mankind and the technology created in the evolution of the biosphere.” The report urges Bio-awareness and “the ability to think eco-systemically” across all sectors of the economy.”
On what’s really new the report concludes that “Each participant in the economy of the future will exist in a world that is way more complex than the one we are used to. This will lead to the emergence of a new class of complex tasks that humanity and its individual representatives will have to solve.”
In the knowledge economy, the key trend changing the workplace landscape will not be the replacement of humans by computers, but the growth of the complexity of tasks. The report stresses the importance of emotional intelligence, self-management, and creativity all as skills that will be useful for this changing landscape.
