This does not out-rule other
        generations.

Though each generation have similar
  mind sets within their generation
What change will digital
    natives bring?
Digital natives and young people
      are in unique position
They are now an authority on
  technological collaboration/
communication and new ways of
           working
They are now just starting to join
         the work force

Go out and discuss the
evolutionary revolution of
         change.

And be involved, even if you

     influencing change.
