East Bay Consulting Group-driving forces

Ian Henneberry
Increased gov't surveillance (started with the monitoring of the patriot act...and it will only get worse: gov't knowing your whereabouts at all times, what phone calls you make, what you buy, which websites you visit...)
-Increasing population (as well as people living longer) vs. earths diminishing resources....eventually its going to get ugly
-Technology making certain jobs/businesses obsolete

Predetermined Element-There will be more career opportunities available for Registered Dieticians.
Critical Uncertainty-Where will the opportunities be available? Will they be available at hospitals, private businesses, schools or through the internet? With telecommuting becoming more popular and easier to do, it seems like these opportunities with be thriving with the internet via video conferencing.

People are living longer and currently in the US the population is getting older. The demographic changes of our population greatly impact industries and individual companies.

Population changes-Scientists are currently predicting an increase in worldwide population for several years. I believe a population increase is a critical uncertainty because countries could implement policies to curb population growth.

Two driving forces within our society today involve our respect for diversity and our ability to help others in need. Diversity is seen daily, the more diverse environments people expose themselves to, the more likely we are to accept and encourage the differences that makes us individuals within a society. Our human nature unfortunately does not lend to us helping others. It requires being able to decipher between what is right and what is wrong and then being able to decide on an appropriate action. Typically the more dense the population, a big city, the less likely we are to help another in need.

1. Technology will change how healthcare is provided
2. Machines will replace workers in the fast food industry-no people at drive-thru
