For over a century, the idea of an organisation as a machine made a lot of sense. But that no longer holds true. Artificial intelligence, machine learning and robots are already encroaching on what would have been considered to be high value roles requiring experience - and this trend is set to accelerate. Sustainable growth, however, will require uniquely human capacities such as creativity, empathy and care. To tap into the full potential of their people, companies need to remodel themselves as evolving, living organisms. Adaptability, transparency and empowerment are the keys to ongoing relevance.
