Paradigm Shift

Certain companies in the automobile and technological sectors experience a paradigm shift once a while, where once-dominant companies are usurped by the next wave of startups.

First-generation car manufacturers, once considered untouchable were rendered irrelevant by imported cars. Tech companies like IBM and Microsoft, which had a stronghold across the world for two decades, appear to be sidelined by newer players like Google, Amazon, and Apple.

Generational Change

When the end-users needs and problems are solved in fundamentally different ways, even companies that aren't a direct competitor to the old establishments pose a threat.

Generational Change is inevitable and no company can remain dominant for long.

From factories to cubicles to WiFi

Just after WW2, there was a rise in corporate headquarters and larger office spaces and cubicles. During this time, the 8-hour workday was established.

Then came the advancements in computers and technology that lead to remote workers of today. The internet and public WiFi allowed employees to do everything they would in their cubicle, but outside the office. They can also work all hours of the day.

Remote work is common

4.3 million people currently work from home in the United States at least half of the time, and this figure has grown by 150% in the last 13 years.  

Remote workers tend to have higher engagement rates and higher productivity levels. Once they switch to remote work, they rarely want to become office bound again.
