This is something that I personally felt very early within the team. Even though it's clearly a difficult topic to deal with in the early stage of a company (and even more so in a small one) we are trying, years after years, to make small changes that we know will make a greater impact in the end.

Vision CEO: Right on Time !

85% of the jobs of 2030 do not exist today: this figure is quoted in many articles, in all the talks that I could attend recently and which comes from a joint report from Dell and the Institute for the Future, a California based think tank.
