About

The global economy is undergoing a transformation both in distribution and complexity. This transformation is being driven in part by the infinitely expanding information economy combined with the rising costs of goods and fuel. Companies across the globe are turning to technology to reduce costs and leverage global expertise by removing distance barriers and replacing the cube with an anytime office. However, traditional systems of management fail when it comes to answering the question; how do we manage the career path for the worker of tomorrow?

For over twenty years Doug Richards, founding partner of B2i Ventures, has studied the business of education from the inside and along the way learned to manage it from the outside.
