Technology is rapidly changing the way we work and live. People are much faster in embracing new technologies and platforms than organisations can keep up to. Today we can find the information we need faster, learn online, connect and network easily. Thus we, consumers and employees, have different expectations from companies and managers in the way we buy and work. We demand a more dynamic, less formal and more transparant way of living and working together.
