      Ricoh survey explores ‘Generation Gap 2.0’

      “Don’t trust anyone over 30” captured the essence of the Generation Gap in the 1960s, when college students mobilized to set a bold new tone in American culture.

      Echoes of that intergenerational tension resonate in today’s U.S. workplace as many younger workers question older colleagues’ competence and many older workers question younger workers’ commitment. Some call it Generation Gap 2.0.

      Products or Solutions?

      Buyers are not lying in bed at night thinking of what products they are going to buy.  They don’t buy PRODUCTS, they look for SOLUTIONS.  Sell solutions.  Solve their problems.

      It is amazing how our industry has moved from “selling boxes” to solving problems.  Just look at the articles and announcements.  Sure the manufacturers announce the specs of their new boxes, but the most popular articles are about who is doing what and who has new SOLUTIONS.

      The end of the year is not that far away, just thought I’d help you stay focused.
