Change is Gaining Speed

We live in a world that brings faster and faster change.  It's just fact.  News cycles erode sometimes in hours as compared to days or weeks that marked our world of just a few decades ago.  Movies come and go before many are even aware that they were ever released.  The amount of information being produced and distributed is so vast that we can only absorb so much before newer information is thrust upon us.

So is this an overall plus or negative? The answer is complex and depends on your perspective.  On one hand, fast change presents fast opportunity.  On the other, it also brings brevity.  Nothing will last.

Companies will have to incorporate flexibility into their very core natures.  Being rigid and slow just won't cut it anymore.
