Future Ready: Preparing for Tomorrow's Economy

This report examines various technological advancements such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, robotics, and machine learning, and how they are upending entire industries and the future of work. Through case studies and interviews, the report dives into several industry sectors that are projected to experience significant changes in the coming years, including advanced manufacturing, retail, healthcare, food, and transportation. These changes will have a lasting impact on the ability of EDOs to support their community's efforts to stay competitive and prepare for the future. The report provides the Future Ready Framework which is a ready-to-use tool for EDOs and community partners as they move forward in becoming better prepared for the future.
