Response to Budi (Reply #14)

18. I am sort of conflicted.

New people bring in new ideas. People who are generationally younger bring insight of how the future should go. For example, myself as a baby boomer canít truly imagine how things 50 years from now will look, because I donít have the generational makeup to have experienced some of the things that will lead to that future. But a person who say is 28 years old should be able to marginally imagine what that future will look like because that person has experienced situations which will morph toward that future.

Seniority is a valuable advantage to have, but if a person has become stale and out of touch, then having a less senior person in place may not be as bad as some would believe. It all is a delicate process and people need to be careful when advocating one approach over the other.
