The �TIDES of Change� at Sea Asia

Dean van Leeuwen made an astute choice in not trying to �talk shipping� in his Admiralty-sponsored seminar �TIDES of Change� at Sea Asia. Instead the �futurist� took a trot through the �disruptive forces of change� impacting business and encouraged the audience to ask themselves the questions.

In the event, there was plenty for delegates to chew over � change is of course a disruptive subject for this industry � but Leeuwen�s key point rang very true: don�t deal with the problems of the future with yesterday�s logic.

The TIDES themselves � Technology, Institutions, Demography, Environment and Societal Values � all had something to say to shipping.

Some pretty big institutions have been taken by surprise at the speed and shape of change. An ageing population that is not being replaced seems an unstoppable force of nature.

At the same time, generation Y is entering the workplace with very different ideas about the nature of work and loyalty to company or industry. The need to manage environmental exposure is a given but there is a growing acceptance that green business makes commercial sense � an observation which certainly struck a chord here.

That of course leaves the big one � technology.   Technology is changing, sure, but it also represents change itself. From dial-up internet to the internet of things � millions of connected devices all clamouring for our attention, Leeuwen suggested the challenge was not the technology per se but how we deal with the information it presents.

It need not be frightening. Leeuwen gave a neat example of a ground-level project. An IBM engineer living on the Isle of Wight, fed-up with the ferry company�s inability to tell him how the ships were running, combined public AIS data with Twitter to develop a system that kept him constantly updated.

Slightly more Blue-Sky was the use of advanced technologies, such as augmented reality which could provide crew working onboard ship with the information they need to repair equipment with input from shore.

As with all the TIDES, he said the key issue was not just to see them as disruptive � through they certainly had that potential � but to understand what each could mean to a business. Shipping has a tendency to ignore the issues it dislikes and it is far from alone in that.

But these change factors affect industries and sectors far beyond shipping and there is no reason to believe that shipping can escape them either.
