Agents of Change

As the World Wide Web turned 25 this past week, I paused to reflect on how technology has empowered a generation to be “Agents of Change” in a way never possible until now. No matter what our role, there is a never-ending expectation to improve, be creative, and embrace what’s next.
As the World Wide Web turned 25 this past week, I paused to reflect on how technology has empowered a generation to be “Agents of Change” in a way never possible until now. No matter what our role, there is a never-ending expectation to improve, be creative, and embrace what’s next.

The prevailing conviction is that the current status quo can always be improved.

Whether we’re following or leading change, “managing change” is woven through the fabric of every day. New technology & new methods are empowering us to be more efficient, more accurate, and more effective but how about the down side? Well, there is certainly lots that can be written and “rushing into change” has more casualties than success stories. Staying with our time tested practices of evaluating, and carefully analyzing new solutions and opportunities in an intentional & deliberate way is more important than ever.

As we consider what the next 25 years of technology might bring, it’s the human ‘agent’ element that I believe will bring the most satisfaction and reward.
