Not only do most Gen Yers prefer collaboaration, they can stand in the place of chaos and randomness, as the first truely quantum generation, without heading for the rule books. A great asset these days in any organization.

After researching and now writing about the topic myself, it has become painfully obvious that my generation will completely revolutionize the current corporate structure. Not because we want to rebel, but rather because it just does not make sense to us. Thanks for explaining this topic so clearly.
