Celebrate both financial and non financial achievements
Employees need to feel validated and that they are a valued part of the organization. Leadership needs to show how much they care for their employees and show recognition for efforts

Over-the-top messaging apps like WhatsApp are currently leading a paradigm shift away from traditional SMS and towards lower-cost and feature-rich alternatives. As the popularity of messaging applications continue to rise, expect to see further declines in SMS revenue on a global scale.

Over the top dynamics - The traditional TV industry is been disrupted by OTT. Over the top dynamics are also playing out in the mobile space

Will access to assets be the new ownership?
- On-demand access to assets, rather than ownership?

#technology #digital #digitization
Netflix altered the way people consume movies, Oyster are trying to impact the way people read. Will access to assets be the new ownership?
