David Pollard’s vision of a global corporation in 2015. The company this employee works for no longer has a knowledge centre, in-house researchers or a corporate library.

Everyone on the payroll either sells product or delivers services to customers. [Steve Hooker’s Radio: kids, war, blogs, gadgets]
