An interesting Infographic from 2011 laid out the skills workers will need by 2020. We're halfway there and it seems the future may arrive sooner than predicted.

Almost 5 years ago the Institute for the Future and The University of Phoenix Research Institute created a report forecasting the skills needed in the next 10 years. They looked at the major drivers of change and then determined the skills required to best adapt and thrive based on those drivers.  

The infographic below summarizes that report and reviewing it midway through their original 10-year timeline, there's a lot of insight in their predictions. Perhaps these skills are already in demand.  

Interestingly, the skills shown above are divided into two categories:

  • Skills where we currently have the edge over automation, digitalization and artificial intelligence 
  • Skills that allow us to better to use automation, digitalization and artificial intelligence

In other words, where we can't beat 'em, join 'em!
