Transformation Obstacles

and the Coming of

Exponential technologies are invalidating long-held assumptions about jobs, firms, industries, and whole economies.

The Post-Industrialist

About our newsletter

The Institute develops new management thinking and tools to help you navigate a rapidly changing world. We are focused on the transition to a post-industrial economy and culture, characterized by exponential technologies in combination with rapid decentralization. The pandemic accelerated the transition, but also brought new constraints and uncertainties.

Entire industries are being transformed and new industries are being born. We believe we need to fundamentally change our thinking about firms, work, strategy, and governance. Our goal with our research and advisory work, and with this newsletter, is to help you connect the dots and chart a better strategy going forward.

The Post-Industrialist is published twice a month to an audience of PE and venture investors, founders, senior corporate exercutives, and policymakers. We keep it brief to share our perspectives with you in a condensed format.
