The MSP Generation Divide
Time changes everything. That certainly seems like an appropriate saying when examining the managed services profession. MSPs seem to be getting younger and younger every year. Or maybe we are just getting older.

- New MSP generation doesn’t have preconceived notions of managed services
- Younger MSP generations have a lot to learn
- Younger MSP generations need access to the veteran MSPs
