The Big Idea
Todays Digital/Internet/Knowledge Era is redesigning work and organizations.
The Industrial Age birthed factories and gave us standardized jobs making standardized products for standardized customers.
Todays office is a mere factory extension – the production line has become a row of cubicles.
And, that’s about to change.
The flip from standard to custom is creating unique organizations relying on the unique abilities of it’s unique employees to create unique solutions for its unique customers.
This is your chance to shine!
