Publisher's Summary

One of the most profound changes in business and society is the emergence of the post-Millennial generation, Gen Z. While every new generation has faced its share of disruption in technology, economics, politics and society, no other generation in the history of mankind has had the ability to connect every human being on the planet to each other and in the process to provide the opportunity for each person to be fully educated, and socially and economically engaged.

What might this mean for business, markets, and educational institutions in the future? In this revolutionary new book, The Gen Z Effect: The Six Forces Shaping the Future of Business, authors Tom Koulopoulos and Dan Keldsen delve into a vision of the future where disruptive invention and reinvention is the acknowledged norm, touching almost every aspect of how we work, live and play. From radical new approaches to marketing and manufacturing to the potential obliteration of intellectual property and the shift to mass innovation, to the decimation of our oldest learning institutions through open source and adaptive learning, The Gen Z Effect provides a mind-bending view of why we will need to embrace Gen Z as the last, best hope for taking on the world's biggest challenges and opportunities, and how you can prepare yourself and your business for the greatest era of disruption, prosperity, and progress the world has ever experienced.

Critic Reviews

"For years, I have experienced enterprises losing the wisdom of generations because of generational divides. This book offers hope and prescription for stemming that loss. It comes at a critical time in the evolution of organizations." (Jim Champy, author of Reengineering the Corporation)

Don’t buy this audiobook

The narrators of this book are horrible! One is reading so fast I can’t understand him and the other is mumbling!

Bad narrators... Had to skip some chapters

The book is Ok. Please get a professional narrator, I had to skip all of Dan's narration (The authors narrate the book and change every chapter...)

Swallowed words, but good content

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The book was worthwhile listening to, as the material is thought provoking and stands one in good stead to understand the businesses of the future.

What other book might you compare The Gen Z Effect to and why?

I haven't read anything quite like the Gen Z Effect.

Would you be willing to try another one of Tom Koulopoulous and Dan Keldsen ’s performances?

Tom's reading was good, although I was disappointed with Dan's reading.

Could you see The Gen Z Effect being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

A documentary of the book would be quite interesting.

Any additional comments?

It is perhaps best to buy the book as a hard copy or ebook, as the material can definitely be used for reference.

Great read for leaders wanting to stay relevant

The Gen Z effect is about more than just spanning generation gaps, it's about staying relevant through continually learning and challenging your beliefs and assumptions.
