A few thought coming from Neil Dawson, Sapient Nitro, CSO.

If planning is fragmenting, who’s gonna be in charge of leading a wild bunch of peeps?

At the same moment, the number of new technologies, tools and service call for new expertise. It’s very hard to be updated on everything.

Counterforces in action.

As long as there’s a shared purposed I guess everything gonna be all right.
