For the thousands of big companies lumbering along the 21st century, it's time to bring the "little fockers" into shared power. At the moment, the world is just too complex for Boomer CEOs. We need B-Y team leadership. We need to follow the standard that Google has put forth.

Explain senior management's role in preparing the organization for its most recent change.
