Academic Richard Florida talks about the creative class
Outspoken academic Richard Florida talks about the future of cities. In his research, he indicates the “creative class” will dominate the working world in the future. These people are characterized by their creativity and their ability to solve problems – skills that are necessary for intrapreneurs as well.
For a city to attract people of this class, it must have what Florida calls the “Three T’s” – Talent, Tolerance, and Technology.
That means aspiring intrapreneurs, need to be highly educated on topics that affect the future of work. Further, they have to be aware of differences and know how to leverage diversity, and they need to be technologically savvy (or able to learn).
