An Article By, Evan Leonard, President
The Jetsons originated in 1962 and was to take place in 2062, 100 years into the future.
I am fortunate to be a member of a group called YPO. YPO is an international organization of Presidents that concentrate on bettering their professional life, family and self. As part of our education series, I sat in on a three-hour presentation with question and answers concerning the future of transportation. We had a renowned speaker a subject matter expert in transportation and digital transformation. He talked about the disruption to the industry and how could affect our lives. I would mention the speakers name but that falls under YPO confidentiality, you will have to take me at my word. The purpose of my article is to educate the reader around this topic but more importantly to be thought provoking so you can correlate it to your industry. The question you need to ask, how you are preparing for the digital transformation. Is your industry ripe for disruption and are you prepared? Read the next few paragraphs, as I believe you will be amazed how the disruption effects more than transportation. For this article, I am pointing out the changes to vehicles on the road. Although companies are already working on “flying cars.”
