It's really scary to think carefully! The rapidly changing world economy forces us to continuously learn, summarize and improve, otherwise we will soon be surpassed by learners! The leapfrog development in the new era of global economy and technology will eliminate companies that are unwilling to change, do not know how to change, or change slowly.
