However, this is not the only thing expanding at a rapid rate, information is also exponentially growing as we age as a society. This growth in information is due to a number of factors ranging from the introduction of new technologies to the increase in the size of the population with access to these technologies.
This Infographic represents the statistics that show the rapid growth in information and access to information, the history of the evolution of how information is generated on the information superhighway, and the risks associated with this information.
Sticking our heads in the sand, and saying we don’t have enough time, is no longer an acceptable option. Our roles, each of us, is to get smarter and more efficient and effective at gathering this information, analysing it and then making appropriate decisions.
The leaders of now and into the future will be those that can effectively manage the information on the information superhighway. And these managers will be car poolers.
