The Need: An Updated, Global Career Perspective

Our world population shifted significantly in 2023 with India becoming the largest population, China the 2nd largest population, Africa the 3rd largest population, the European Union the 4th largest population, and the U.S.A. the 5th largest population in the world. This is impacting and increasing the demand for global supply chains, global talent, and global management/leadership. Geopolitical alliances are also shifting, realigning, and reconsidering their historical priorities.

An updated, global career perspective is now required of employees, workers, managers, and leaders–regardless of their physical location; additionally, international assignments may or may not require relocation to another country.
