We are no longer making widgets but we still hire as if we are. We need to hire for the ability to turn information into knowledge.
Change is happening all around us, and yet, the tech industry continues to hire and build teams that are still stuck in the Industrial Age matrix. Everyone is sick and tired of being asked, “Are you technical?”
We are in the Information Age where diversity and inclusion are required parts of smart business planning. Shed the outdated silo thinking and shift to systems thinking. Success in today’s knowledge economy requires that all team members understand how every decision impacts business leaders ability to innovate, differentiate, and gain competitive advantage.
