Updated with proposed key meanings of Jobsism and Fordism, please take a look at the post Applying #Jobsism to transform current global #Fordism marketing myopia, by hitting its own hyperlink.  Its summary is as follows:
 
Let's agree that this is the most important leadership issue being faced by humanity:
From the current Fordism common sense, The Economist 'cover leader' can be considered to represent a current reality that shows that capitalism all over the world is undergoing a similar “Marketing Myopia” that Theodore Levitt described in 1960 about how the railroad business industry sector over expanded.
 
This time it is not just an industrial sector, but the whole industrial civilization that has over expanded under the common sense of Fordism in such a way as to create a huge social and environmental systemic crisis for the world as a whole. As a result we should all agree that it is the most important leadership issue being faced right now by humanity.
 
The key sector behind that systemic crisis and its solution is in general the energy sector and electricity in particular. While there might be disagreements as to whether the Eurozone is the biggest threat, it seems that it is the best place to start the emergent transformation to Jobsism.
