This week’s combination of resources and articles offers insights and practical resources to help you equip yourself with the skills required in these disruptive times, as well as for the Future of Work.


Welcome to The TomorrowToday Podcast.

Welcome to The TomorrowToday Podcast where your hosts, Buhle Dlamini and Graeme Codrington, will be mapping the future of business. That might sound like a bold claim – but that’s what they do as futurists.

As futurists and strategy consultants, we’ve made it our job to understand change and how to adapt effectively. The reason we’re starting this podcast is because we believe that leaders, entrepreneurs, and executives need to think differently about how they lead into the future.

We’ll be discussing how business leaders need to go beyond what they currently know in order to ensure their success in the face of extremely disruptive change.

If you listened to this episode and want to learn more about how your business can become bionic, antifragile, and a force for good in the world, we’d love to connect with you.

The Grey Elephants and how to seize opportunities amid disruptive change.

Grey Elephants are defined as significant yet often overlooked forces of change that have far-reaching implications. They’re the elephants in the room, representing major socio-economic, environmental, and technological trends that are visible but often ignored by businesses and society.

● Are you effectively monitoring these transformative forces?
● How is your organisation preparing to adapt and thrive amidst these changes?

Grey Elephants are not just challenges but uncharted opportunities for forward-thinking leaders.

By incorporating an awareness of grey elephants into strategic planning, enables businesses to anticipate challenges, seize opportunities, and remain resilient in the face of change.

We empower businesses to not just navigate these grey elephants but to harness their transformative potential and design resilient, adaptable strategies that shape and create their own destinies.

In our guide, we explore each Grey Elephant in detail, their implications and how to unlock their transformative potential for your business. You can get the guide here.

ThrowForward Thursday: Data, data everywhere – Review of Season 4 and inspiration for the future.

As Graeme reviews the last 40 episodes of Season 4 of ThrowForward Thursday, a clear theme emerges: DATA! It’s a cliche to say that “Data is the new oil”, but it really is. And yet, not a single one of Graeme’s clients is collecting enough data from staff and customers.

Very few of them gave dedicated “data detective” functions, looking for hidden riches in the datasets they have access to. Hardly any of them have created a new product or service out of data analytics in the last year. All of this should be embedded in organisations, generating value and enhancing competitive advantage.

Watch this video to expand your strategic imagination about what data can mean for you and your organisation in the rest of the 2020s.
