In the conventional view of the transformation process, certain sec ondary concerns, such as the need to protect the environment or to help an increasingly heterogeneous work force deal with its personal issues, are seen as problematic for this core thrust. Some recent work, however, is beginning to show that if these so-called secondary concerns are con sidered central, far from being problematic, they actually present strat egy opportunities for productive innovation and change.With the advent of cellular and fiber-optic technology, the space required for physical infrastructure will dwindle even ... their number is shrinking), customer service representatives, information services, accounting and administrative staff, and, ... has been superseded in many of todaya#39;s businesses by investment of capital funds in office space, furniture systems, ... of a business] or their successors are the ones who implement the business plan on which the capital proposal is basedaquot;, anbsp;...
