Abstract

This article is an edited version of the author's keynote presentation at the Strategic Leadership Forum's 1999 Conference. He discusses the new dynamics of change, or the way change changes; his vision of how thinking will be organized in the future; and the new rules for succeeding in a world of chaos. Using examples from historical events, he proposes that civilization is again entering a time of supreme discontinuity. Living successfully in this time of absolute change requires a kind of cultural schizophrenia in which one virtually lives in two worlds at the same time without feeling any inconsistency.
