No Going Back
Exploring new horizons in global education
When anything changes, you face a risk. The way you respond will turn that risk into an opportunity, or a crisis.
But what happens when everything changes? How do you assess risk, identify opportunity, create and implement robust new strategies at a speed fast enough to move forward amid a maelstrom of change?
Compared to today, the past seems like a model of certainty. Of course, it never was. But it was more predictable, with fewer education players in a more stable world. In today’s pandemic- impacted global education market, any sense of certainty is rare. Almost everything is changing. Standing still is not an option.
That’s why we have produced this book. Our aim is to identify and map the complex web of inflection points that will shape and inform your future strategy. From the rejection of globalization to a new world disorder, from climate chaos to the refugee crisis, from old market certainties to new education super powers, all in the context of an uneven journey through the greatest public health crisis in more than a century.
No Going Back will help you understand what all of this means for you, and will help you reshape what success looks like in today’s volatile global education market. We have drawn together some of the best minds in our business, thinking through the challenges and working towards solutions.
