“It’s all about just-in-time knowledge: getting the right skills, at the right time, for the right purpose!” – Futurist Jim Carroll
‘’Today I’m in Houston with one of the leading luxury home builders in the US, talking about the home, subdivision and neighbourhood 10 years out.
It is one that will involve new building methodologies and new materials, such as windows that generate solar energy. Local community energy micro-grids, and in-home health care monitoring. Drone landing pads on the driveway for package delivery and neighbourhood car sharing garages. Building for manufacturing with assembly as the key methodology, with much of the construction occurring off site.
There is a lot going on, and those who win will be those who align themselves to these trends – and more so, who attain and develop the skills to get them there.
And with that, today’s quote! I’ve been talking about the concept of ‘just-in-time knowledge’ since 1995 …. and going forward, it is still one of the most critical success factors in aligning to the trends of the 21st century.’’
