Peering into the future, BCG’s Judith Wallenstein paints a picture of organizational leadership upended by AI, global volatility, and blurring boundaries between companies that work together. She muses that the chief executive officer role may morph into a chief ecosystem orchestrator role and demand leadership traits and backgrounds far different than we see today. How would top executives deploy influence, foster trusting relationships, and welcome and accept challenges that enhance corporate decision making?   Help Us Imagine the Future--Send Us Your Ideas or Questions What major changes or disruptions do YOU see on the horizon?Please email us the future scenario you’d like us to explore.

Middle management. Senior leaders say it’s a sticking point; individual contributors say it’s not meeting needs; middle managers themselves say the role is a source of burnout. Julia Dhar, founder and leader of BCG’s Behavioral Science Lab, imagines a future in which AI takes over aspects of middle management. Among the most beneficial outcomes: companies keep their employees doing what they do best and senior leaders communicate their vision directly to the frontline. Help Us Imagine the Future--Send Us Your Ideas or QuestionsWhat major changes or disruptions do YOU see on the horizon?Please email us the future scenario you’d like us to explore. Or, send us a question you might have for GENE or about working with GENE.

Some argue that self-generating software will be a revolutionary development for businesses, others contend that it may be unwieldy.  BCG’s Vladimir Lukic believes that it will be a playful thought partner for business leaders to steer and sanity-check. It will make nimble exploration and innovation possible so that every company can have the bespoke and custom programs it needs. What should leaders do until the unknown point in the future when self-writing software is a reality?  Help Us Imagine the Future--Send Us Your Ideas or QuestionsWhat major changes or disruptions do YOU see on the horizon?Please email us the future scenario you’d like us to explore. Or, send us a question you might have for GENE or about working with GENE.

Some worry that AI will eliminate jobs. But what if we found ourselves in 2030 with 50% more job openings than people to fill them? BCG’s Debbie Lovich imagines a world where top companies must wow workers—or risk losing essential talent (and profits) to competitors. How would CEOs extend their companies’ customer-facing strengths to attract the best of the talent pool? By deploying deep research, segmentation, and personalization to create the kind of workplace that talent buys into. Those that spark joy will clean up in the marketplace.   Help Us Imagine the Future--Send Us Your Ideas or QuestionsWhat major changes or disruptions do YOU see on the horizon?Please email us the future scenario you’d like us to explore. Or, send us a question you might have for GENE or about working with GENE.

A Bot in the C-Suite?

A Bot in the C-Suite?

By 2030, the best CIO might be a CIB: a chief intelligence bot. And the human CEO might be bolstered by a swarm of CEO bots, able to harness a vast diversity of perspectives. Can you imagine? In this episode, BCG’s Mickey McManus envisions a future where top leaders share the corner office with AI—blending the logical with human intuition. Mickey, a BCG senior advisor and a pioneer in human-centered design, considers how a company like this would function. Hint: he recommends an approach much like jazz improvisation.
