PA opinion

  • Never forget your heart and soul – a lesson for leaders everywhere2016 has been an interesting year to say the least. Regardless of whether you are delighted or appalled by the outcome of recent events, the message for other national governments appears to be this: listen more, don't ignore the silent majority and never forget your heart and soul. 09/12/2016
  • The UK's talent crisis – how can local learning partnerships overcome our national skills deficit?A new PA report, 'Communities of Talent: universities in local learning and innovation ecosystems', explores the ways in which universities, employers and other partners around the world have been rethinking the meanings of skills and talent in today's world, and are working together to develop innovative responses. 18/02/2016
  • Back to the AI Future: the emergence of the Second Machine Age workforce 21 October 2015 is 'Back to the Future Day'. It was the day in Back to the Future (BTTF) 2 that Marty McFly travels to the future from 1985 and discovers his hometown transformed. While we still don't have flying cars (and hover boards are still in development), the movie made some alarmingly accurate predictions about how technology would significantly augment and automate the world. 12/12/2016
  • Lasting impact or lasting dependency: what will be the legacy of your change support team?At PA, we are increasingly seeing clients plug this skill gap by hiring external support or establishing internal consulting teams to reinforce change leaders. But if these decisions are not carefully thought through and the right change partner selected, organisations can become over-reliant on them. 18/08/2016
