Re: breakfast
I can see this. I can understand how employers at first might be skeptical to try something new, but once they get the hang of it and realize how useful it is, I'm sure there's no complaining.

Re: breakfast
@dcawrey I'm sure many employees actually welcome the change. I do a lot of interviews with people who introduce technological solutions in their businesses. They usually say that employees are happy once they get the hang of it because the benefits become very obvious to them.

Re: breakfast
I thinkt the nature of work is changing as the tools do – this isn't something that organizations are not accustomed to. Workplaces were the first places that saw the opportunity email presented. As new technologies arrive, I expect companies to continue to innovate the workplace despite employees wanting things to remain unchanged.

Re: The longer run often gets the short end of the stick
@JohnBarnes I don't know. A lot of people seem to not really stick with what you'd think is essential to the job -- like being there during the work hours. My daughter has a camp job and reports that the person in charge of her division disappears for a couple of hours every day. Being there from 9 to 4 (with only the mandated 40 minute break) is pretty integral to the job.

Re: The longer run often gets the short end of the stick
Joe,

I know one economist who likes to say that the real Zeroth Law of Labor Economics is: people always figure out what they are actually being paid to do, and do that. Applies to the C-suite as much as to anywhere else.

Zoom Out - Zoom In Challenge
Thank you for sharing this Mike. The challenge for some execs with Zoom Out will be the length of expected tenure in post, which is normally driven by more immediate business KPIs. This often leads to a 2-3 year window of opportunity (sometimes enforced) during which time they need to show value.

Culture change needs to happen at chairman/board level to allow adequate time to define and fulfil the vision of what a company wants to be in an increasingly digital world

Re: breakfast
@Joe Stanganelli, maybe your elites don't know what pigs are, but they certainly endorse the digital future.  I see the east coast (where I was born) as a driver of digital transformation, along with the west coast (where I live).

But the key in Mike's excellent report is the fact that the leading companies are truly embracing technology to transform their businesses into new models, services, cultures, etc.   Those companies that are trying to "evolve", instead of "transforming" their businesses, will continue to lag.

<We learned that pigs don't run well on linoleum and that greased pig contests in confined areas lead to injuries. > @Mike that was certainly a learning experience then! You used the scientific method to discover these causes and effects.
