Ok, no reply so let me comment and try to progress thread sort of:
Did this report really say: follow a star in the sky, guide us to a vision 2050...the findings suggested no simple single path to that vision...however, maybe a 9 element, 7 part critical-path path would do it. Moreover, in to the future there's a nine billion population planet with opportunities in the trillions of monetary currency. The present is the era of the teenager (who are terrible) and the path will take us to an existence of the adult era?
It took 18 mths to create the 24 pg report. Disregard 6 pgs (e.g. the cover, picture, message from co-chairs, sponsors, marketers & acknowledgements) = 18 pgs. The breakdown: 2pg exec' summary ; 2pg vision ; 2pg pathway, 2pg diagram, 2pg estimates ; 2pg opportunities, 1 page conclusion.
recommendations: 1, 2, at most 3 pgs could have been sufficient. Work on the ability to sell 'yourself' more, get your vision across in say, 5 mins; And have a vision for next..5 years. Then only if it is appropriate, move on to 40 years. On second thoughts..not 5-year plans...to infamous.
