It does not take much vision to realize that we are living in a world of rapid change and increased uncertainty. As a recent Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) report noted, “In the opening decades of the twenty-first century there is a good chance that four simultaneous and powerful societal transformations will give rise to more variety and interdependence: from the uniformity and obedience of the mass era to the uniqueness and creativity of a knowledge economy and society; from rigid and isolated command planning to flexible, open and rule-based markets; from predominantly agricultural structures to industrial urbanization; and lastly, from a relatively fragmented world of autonomous societies and regions to the dense and indispensable interdependencies of an integrated planet” (OECD 2000).
