BOne of the key factors in success in matrix and virtual organizations is maintaining a sense of community.

I read an interesting article today that suggests that young people, though technologically savvy, are keen to socialize and build community with their local colleagues.

For workers in their thirties this focus shifts more towards building community outside work.

The article claims this is another “Generation Y” difference. I remain sceptical about all this Generation Y stuff, it sounds like young people are even more similar to how they used to be when I was one. Much of the generation Y stuff is just life stages (in my opinion).

Why not…?
