Urbanization is actually reaching the end of its cycle, says logistics expert Julio Gil, and soon more people will be choosing to live (and work) in the countryside, thanks to rapid advances in augmented reality, autonomous delivery, off-the-grid energy and other technologies.

Instagram Micro Lessons from #HurricaneIrma | Dr. Jose G. Lepervanche

Micro Lesson #HurricaneIrma 2

Micro Lessons using our Instagram Photos #InstagramMicroLessons in our courses.

One week after Hurricane Irma crossed Florida from the Keys to our home in Jacksonville, Florida, we collected several lessons to be used in our Management courses this coming week. We are going to use our Instagram pictures to follow the hurricane and share our thoughts, analyses, and decisions to protect our family and friends. We were in our bunker (condo) hosting a family of five friends who evacuated Miami.

Here are the points that we are covering in our courses:

  • Emergency Preparedness #GlobalManagement
  • Weather Data Analysis #GlobalSystems
  • City Leaders During Storms #GlobalLeadership

Follow @DrLepervanche via Instagram for more #InstagramMicroLessons

This week we will add some of these points to our weekly discussion. Have a great week.
