RESEARCH IN A FLASH

How do you promote informed decision-making within your organisation? We’ve noticed that for many organisations, this can prove challenging – especially when decisions need to be made quickly. It takes time and effort to produce the reports and research papers on which big decisions are based – and few have the time or the expertise.

At Hot Spots Movement, we have a highly skilled research team – and we’re willing to share them. You can now add Hot Spots Movement research expertise – covering topics such as  flexibility, diversity, technology & work, learning, innovation and collaboration – to your own reports and papers. More

ARE YOU PREPARED TO LIVE TO 100?

Most of us are aware by now that our lives are getting longer. But are any of us really prepared for what that means? Peter Vanham, Senior Media Manager at the World Economic Forum thinks not. In his recent article, Peter takes Lynda Gratton and Andrew Scott’s book The 100-Year Life as a starting point to look at the flaws in how most of us are approaching our lives and careers – including the fact that most of us are planning for lives decades shorter than the lives we will actually live.

It’s a great interpretation of the book, urging us to stop seeing the idea of living to 100 as a fantasy and to start planning for it as a reality. It’s definitely worth a read for anyone interested in the book.

INNOVATION AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP
IN THE BANKING INDUSTRY

We’re getting ready for the start of our Banker of the Future project, during which we’ll be working with a number of international banks to define what the Banker of the Future will being like. One area we’ll be addressing is innovation and entrepreneurship – concepts that are at the heart of many other industries.

With so much regulation to contend with, many banks find innovation challenging. And yet, it is essential that large banks remain at the forefront of innovation, building the capabilities required to identify and meet customer needs and envision future successful business models. More
