Cognitive Fitness, The Future of Work, and Concept Maps

Some weeks ago we explained how useful Concept Maps can be to quickly visualize the key ideas in a field, and their relationships.

Let me show you this fantastic example. A few weeks ago I was interviewed by David Pescovitz of the Institute for the Future (blog) to discuss The Future of Work and Cognitive Fitness trends. They had an artist who drew the graph below IN REAL TIME, AS WE SPOKE. Very impressive.

Please open the full image by clicking on it, and spend a few minutes reading around, top-down, left-to right.

You will learn much about what the future may bring (will Human Resources staff become “Cognitive Resources Managers”?), and also how to display complex information in beautiful visual form.

Kudos to the Institute for the Future, an independent nonprofit research group,  for a fascinating event on The Future of Work.

    Hi Alvaro

    I’ve also subscribed to your newsletter. So far, I’m really liking what I see.

    Anyway, that is indeed one truly magnificent concept map. It truly condenses the essence of the subject matters in simple, comprehensive & informative form. It also really helps that the artist used numerous graphics, drawings, symbols and colours to highlight various points.

    On the points brought up, I agree with most of them especially the part about resource training and development being web-based.

    Once again, a wonderful post. I’ll be checking in more often so I sincerely hope to see more.

    Best Regards
