This past week, we just finished teaching week 1 of our Global Engineering Leadership program. On the topic of supply chains, Antonio Mansilla pointed me to this interesting video on the 5 scenarios of the world in 2050. The video has been put together by DHL as part of their forward looking work on how logistics will evolve. The scenarios range from Untamed Economy – Impending Collapse , Mega-Efficiency in Megacities, Paralyzing Protectionism, Customized Lifestyles, and Global Resilience – Local Adaption. Certainly these are all interesting future cases in Engineering Leadership. Reference: The World in 2050 – Future study presented by Frank Appel, CEO Deutsche Post DHL.
