And the industry today no longer need what was required 100 years ago. Rudy Giuliani is likely to agree. Some years ago, Harvard Business School listed 10 skills that students should master in order to be well prepared for the challenges of the new global economy: 1.-the ability to define a problem without the help of another person. 2. The ability to formulate questions that pose a challenge to preconceived ideas. 3. The ability to work as a team without a guide.

4. The ability to work completely alone. 5. The ability to persuade others that the address you propose is correct. 6. The ability to discuss matters in public with the aim of reaching a decision about the rules and established policies and techniques.

7. The ability to reorganize informacionconocida and form concepts and innovative patterns from She. 8. The ability to be able to quickly extract the useful information from a large amount of irrelevant data. 9. The ability to think inductively, deductively and dialectically. 10. The ability to find an optimal solution to solve problems using intuition and common sense. (Heuristic) The document warned Harvard students professional credentials were worth less and less. Training and experiences in the real world, on the other hand, would be key in order to be successful professionally. According to a recent survey conducted by IBM, in which he interviewed around 1,500 CEOs of 60 Nations and 33 industrial sectors around the world, creativity was considered the key factor for a competent leadership of a successful enterprise of the future. () The implications of these assertions are enormous. If you look at the skills that are considered as essential to live successfully in the future, none of them is taught in educational establishments currently. Traditional education educates its pupils to follow instructions rather than leaving them the freedom to explore your own path. It requires the student to memorize thousands of data that does not relate to his life, instead of letting them deep analysis of acquired knowledge and the application of the same to his real life. Motivates students to surrender with a system of scores that is very far from what should motivate them in their educational process and later in their working lives: a deep passion for their daily activity. Perhaps the worst damage since school is the develop a complacent attitude in their students that teaches how to rely on the system to obtain safety and employment, rather than inspire them to engage in a business which enables them to exploit their unique strengths. The school teaches how to avoid risky situations and trained to think that we can avoid mistakes. However, most successful entrepreneurs take risks and make many mistakes when trying to innovate and explore unknown territories. On the one hand the picture looks dark, since, as parents, we need to prepare our children for a world that is radically different from that we knew as children and we must teach them skills that we ourselves do not possess. On the other hand, we cannot forget that the human being is an innate creative being. In situations of crisis and big changes we can trust that this inquisitive nature will awaken and seek new ways to successfully navigate in a complex global economy.
