In this issue we explore the theme of Transformation by looking at the work being done by Stanford GSB faculty, lecturers, and alumni. We interview a researcher who examined the benefits that accrue to companies when they allow employees to work from home. We visit an alumna in Rwanda who’s improving lives with a business that installs paved, sanitary flooring in homes. And we cover a Stanford GSB conference at which experts reveal the many ways that the “Internet of Things” is disrupting business models worldwide. If you have a good story about how your business — or your life — has been transformed, please send it along in an email to Stanford Business.
