"The Shift Age is an invaluable compass for aligning the work of complex organizations with the rapidly changing needs and expectations of each organization's stakeholders. Author and futurist David Houle has a knack for 'seeing around corners' in a way that both informs long-term strategic planning and provides a context for day-to-day decision-making. Never has that talent been more essential than it is now. Long before I met David, The Shift Age became mandatory reading for executive staff at Winthrop University, and it continues to be a vital orientation resource for new trustees as well."
