About Nine Shift

After five years of research, Nine Shift first appeared in 2000 in presentations, soon after as a book. The book’s predictions garnered international media attention, as well as conference keynotes around the world, on-site presentations, and a blog.

As the shifts came true, there were new predictions and speeches and more media coverage.

With the economic and societal transition from the Industrial Age to the Knowledge Age completed in 2020, the last Nine Shift presentation at the big LERN annual conference concluded with a “Game Over 2020” celebration.
