The ABC of XYZ: Generation Alpha

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

Predictions made by futurists decades ago... by the late 1990s we would all be working from a home office, rendering parking problems and traffic jams a thing of the past! By the 2000s, thanks to the labour-saving devices in the office, we would only be working, on average, three-and-a-half days a week!

Demographics give us insight into the future of our nation and allow us to make some forecasts about what future generations might be like. 

Mark McCrindle's book The ABC of XYZ gives insights and practical strategies to help parents, teachers and managers bridge the gaps and engage with each generation. However, this book is more than a research-based reference work or valuable 'how to' guide - it is also a very interesting read with facts and lists to which members of each generation will reminisce. 

Beyond Z, Meet Generation Alpha: McCrindle Research

Welcome to our blog...
