Making work work across the generations

Listen 00:52:31

Baby Boomers remember the Spencer Tracy Kathryn Hepburn movie Desk Set – their characters clash over a giant computer and its place in the office. Today the clash is often between millennials who have grown up in this digital age and boomers who could never have foreseen the changes these devices bring.

Tom Koulopolous joins us to talk about the six forces he sees shaping the future of business and Jerry Davis answers questions on how to be a social intraprenuer.
