Millennials make up 34 percent of today’s workforce and, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, will comprise nearly half the workforce by 2020. While business decision makers may be hesitant to upend existing technologies and processes around this shift, the fact is that this generation works differently than its predecessors, and understanding these differences is key to equipping millennials with the right tools to maximize productivity and efficiency.

I learned to type in eighth grade, and managed to do pretty well with speed and accuracy since I was a product of 10 years of piano lessons. Each of us had a manual typewriter, but throughout the year each student would do a turn at one of the two IBM Selectric typewriters. No more pounding the keys or losing your finger placement to hit the manual carriage return. Such excitement for an electric typewriter!

The notion of “Customer Lifetime Value” (CLTV) is a concept and calculation that helps organizations determine the dollar value associated with their long-term relationship of any customer, determining just how much that customer relationship is worth. Used by marketers and C-suite executives, CLTV is a prediction of the net profit associated with the entire relationship with a customer. While the calculations can be a bit arcane, the idea of customer lifetime value is an important one because it encourages firms to shift their focus from customer acquisition to the long-term health of their customer relationships.

They were moving from a small space that happened to be within walking distance from my house to a larger facility in the city that would give teachers plenty of room to roam the stacks and select films for their classes during the next academic period.
