Money has a clock tethered to it, and our current economic system was created in the middle ages, around the same time as the clock. I think Rushkoff is hinting to CEO’S that the country’s current economic system is out dated and needs to change for the betterment of society and there businesses. Rushkoff hits the climax of his manifesto, at this point he give suggestions to the CEO’s reading his essay. Rushkoff uses soda companies as an example of presentism. “Less like Coke with its connection to legacy and advertising, more like Pepsi with its focus on social media and the now” (Rushkoff 118).
Johnson was not pleased with the format and with the company reputation as being less than desirable. He began to formulate dramatic changes. Johnson’s idea was to reinvent the shopping experience at J. C. Penney into something more like the Apple store, as it created much success for both him, and the revamped Apple concept. He also wanted to rely less on the various
In, The Power of Habit, Charles Duhigg includes a particularly interesting anecdote about how a simple keystone habit was able to make significant changes in a corporate workplace. In 1987, Paul O’Neill, the new CEO of Alcoa—or the Aluminum Company of America—was speaking to a large group of investors and stock analysts. To the crowd’s dismay, rather than discussing profit margins and other “business buzzwords,” he wanted to discuss worker safety. Worker safety remained his primary focus, and it paid off. Duhigg recounts a conversation he had with Paul O’Neill: “’I knew I had to transform Alcoa,’ O’Neill told me.
On one hand, there are people like Mary Dejevsky who has written the article “Uber and the “sharing economy” are leaps into the past, not the future”, that believes the sharing economy is unfair, and it’s not a positive trend, since it only benefits certain groups in society. And that especially the poor and the elderly miss out, as they primarily don’t have the technology, which allows them to access it. Personally, I understand the author 's frustration, but I must admit that I don’t agree with him. Now that the opportunity for the sharing economy is available, and people have the chance to pay less and get an experience, they should definitely exploit it. But the truth is also, it 's actually sad that it 's not everyone who gets access to it, but just because there are some people in society who will not benefit from it, that should not affect everyone
Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple Inc. is the leader about whom, the current assignment will be based upon. Jobs depicted the execution of an autocratic leadership style in his initial years but changed to transformational leadership style later. Allio (2010) criticized the autocratic leadership style of Jobs for being arrogant and egoistic. It is thus analyzed from the study that the perceptions of the followers regarding the leader matters considerably for a leader to become a role model. However, Hurley-Hanson, and Giannantonio (2013) highlighted the effective persuasive leadership style of Steve Jobs through his initiative of discussing the vision and strategic plans for NeXT with his employees.

This past week, I conducted an informational interview with Aaron Riipa, a Sourcing Manager in Media for General Mills (at their headquarters). I first got into contact with this person by meeting another employee at the same company. The other worker was speaking to one of my student groups and after chatting once the meeting was over he thought it would be helpful for me to chat to another person. Aaron is head of supply chain recruiting at the U for General Mills and as he could be the one hiring me someday he was definitely someone I needed to speak with. He was perfect for me as he started out in buying and now is in sourcing, which are two paths I am considering taking.
