Strategic Planning Reading List (2030-2050)

If you are like me, incredibly curious, insatiably eager, and indulgently bookish; here is a perfect reading list for you. This is for those who are interested in technological evolution or technical advancements and the effect of such advances in the way we all humans would live our lives. Go ahead … sit back … relax … and be enlightened.

Thanks to the thinkers at technology companies like Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Apple, Amazon; and to the thinkers at consulting firms like PwC, McKinsey, Bain, BCG, and whole host of publishers like NPR, Quartz.

Equally compelling books that I enjoyed reading as part of this exercise, where Good to Great by James Collins and Seeing Whats Next by Clayton Christensen.
