You may have heard of the term ‘creative destruction.’ Coined by Joseph Schumpeter (1883-1950), it was meant to signify what Schumpeter saw as the dynamic interplay between economic progress and competition inherent in that progress. School leaders are reading about (or seeing) a relentless influx of new enterprises (organisations of all types) that are proposing […]
Paul Daugherty, H. James Wilson, and Nicola Morini Bianzino wrote in 2017 about jobs that, in their opinion, artificial intelligence would create.
