THE INTEGRATION OF RELIGIOUS THEORY AND THE THEORY U IN EDUCATION: A HUMAN CAPITAL DEVELOPMENT IN THE BUSINESS DISRUPTIVE PARADIGM
The four major forces of Ts are pushing us to globalization faster. These are technology, television, trade, and travel. It is worth noting that the forces of four Ts also turn us into the global economy where firms are competing globally. Organizations can either acquire technologies, or reproduce their more advanced version but within a few years. We would suggest adding one more T which is telephone since it has influenced our life in so many ways. Today, smartphones are shaping mankind behavior in a very significant way. Thailand is currently developing its Thailand 4.0 concept with multiple projects to upgrade from middle-income economy (in which it is trapped now) to value-based economy. The aim of this academic article is to create the theoretical framework of human capital development ready for disruptive economy where certainty is substituted by uncertainty. We also point out to the alignment of Buddhism concept and various Western theories, including Theory U, institutional theory, knowledge management and best practices within the educational system. Today Thailand should be out looking for its new normal with an open mind and open heart and willingness/readiness to develop its human capital further, using goodness, ethics and moral, knowledge and skills, creativity and innovation.
