About the Book
The Third Wave: An Entrepreneur's Vision of the Future by Steve Case
The Third Wave: An Entrepreneur's Vision of the Future by Steve Case (2016) Current price is under $16.81 for hardback plus shipping on Amazon. The book may also be available from your local library.
The Third Wave introduces us to Case’s view that we are entering a new paradigm called the "Third Wave" of the Internet. The first wave saw AOL and other companies lay the foundation for consumers to connect to the Internet. The second wave saw companies like Google and Facebook build on top of the Internet to create search and social networking capabilities, while apps like Snapchat and Instagram leverage the smartphone revolution. Now, Case argues, we're entering the Third Wave: a period in which entrepreneurs will vastly transform major "real world" sectors like health, education, transportation, energy, and food-and in the process change the way we live our daily lives. The Third Wave is part memoir, part manifesto, and part playbook for the future.

Based on the amount of time you will spend in self-directed study of negotiation – we estimate four to six hours of reading, which converts to 4 - 6 PDUs for qualified PMPs who are under the 30 PDU limit for their current three year certification cycle. Please note that these PDUs will need to be reported as Category C: Self-Directed Learning. For full details on PDU reporting refer to the PMP Handbook.
