Here are the slides used during the webinar I did with MITSloan in July 2018. The attendees had lots of good questions and I’m writing up the ones there was no time to answer. Stay tuned! (more…)
Figure 1 for “How a Gig Mindset Inside Organizations Will Shape Our Future“, published on LinkedIn and as part of a series of posts for the 10th Global Peter Drucker Forum blog.
