Here's what caught my attention:

 

At the core is what the professors call “associational thinking.”

 

**The ability to make connections between seemingly unconnected things.

 

A classic example of this is how a calligraphy class inspired Apple legend Steve Jobs’s emphasis on typography on early computers.

 

**The professors then detail what they call the "Innovator’s DNA,"

 

Four time-tested approaches successful innovators follow to gather stimuli that spur these connections:

 

**Questioning: Asking probing questions that impose or remove constraints. Example: What if we were legally prohibited from selling to our current customer?

 

**Networking: Interacting with people from different backgrounds who provide access to new ways of thinking.

 

**Observing: Watching the world around them for surprising stimuli.

 

**Experimenting: Consciously complicating their lives by trying new things or going to new places.

Future Work Skills 2020

Future Work Skills 2020 | Innovation and  Employee Engagement | Scoop.it
Global connectivity, smart machines, and new media are just some of the drivers reshaping how we think about work, what constitutes work, and the skills we will need to be productive contributors in the future. This report analyzes key drivers that will reshape the landscape of work and identifies key work skills needed in the next 10 years. It does not consider what will be the jobs of the future. Many studies have tried to predict specific job categories and labor require- ments. Consistently over the years, however, it has been shown that such predictions are difficult and many of the past predictions have been proven wrong. Rather than focusing on future jobs, this report looks at future work skills—proficiencies and abilities required across different jobs and work settings. Institute For The Future
