A large, aspirant working age population awaits a Sustainable, Economic model!
Reviewed in India on 12 October 2019
Bridgital Nation is a attempt to create a framework to build solutions in-between the "human only activities / skills and the well orchestrated machines / robotic tasks" - by N Chandra, a very experienced business leader running the Tata group with 0.7 million employees across the world in many industries and Roopa, an economist of BRICS fame. As any model will take time to be proven right, they are cautious as well as cajoling the reader on task at hand that between 2020 and 2030, India will add about 1 million people into its workforce every month while at the same time, many advanced economies will have a negative or minor additions, hence pushing them to automate more. Hence, a nation like India, if it has to take advantage of this, it has to embrace digital technologies and be comfortable with new age skills - while addressing data privacy issues and offer relevant work preparation for students.
They also bring in the research from various institutes while also sharing (a) more women are waiting to get into the workforce, which we haven't utilised talentwise or skillwise and (b) Micro, Small and Medium enterprises are waiting to be transformed and are a large source of employment across the world! Governments to take note! When a country's PM launches the book, it is clear he is looking forward for his departments to latch on to the message...
The book has cases and examples on how some people and organizations are already taking advantage of Bridgital technologies and processes. A good read!
