Constant Learning Will Be Key to Success in the Future; What One Learns in School Is Obsolete in Five Years; to Cope with Change, One Needs Seven Critical Skills
In a global economy that is constantly in flux because of new information and technology, how does one stay ahead?
By primarily embracing the fact that one will have to be constantly learning and adapting to new innovations every few years, according to Romulo Romero, Managing Director of OTi Consulting, a firm operating in Manila, Singapore and other parts of the region.
Knowledge doubles at a pace of about every three years, according to studies cited by the Singapore Productivity and Standards Board. This means that half of what one learns in school is obsolete in about five years, explains Romero who heads the Manila office of the regional management consultancy firm.
