No one ever got fired for buying #IBM
That was the conventional wisdom when I started 30 years ago
It was the safe bet executives could make
Today it’s #Microsoft, #Google or one of many more big name players
Do the same as the competition, be part of the pack, and you’re sure not to lose ground
There’s safety in numbers
…what if you wanted to be better than the competition?
What if you wanted to lead?
What if you wanted to stand out?
To create an edge
Just a small one
20+ years in IT R&D tells me you can
All it takes is the right mindset
But you’ve gotta want it
You’ve gotta be prepared to differentiate yourself
To make mistakes
To learn from them
It’s the R&D way
Then you can truly #innovate
You can use IT and the many new technologies to solve your problems, not just at a macro level, but also micro
Rather than papering over the cracks, you can fix them
Rather than working round an issue, you can drive straight through
Rather than being just a face in the crowd, you can be noticed
It’ll be challenging
It’ll be hard
It may even be a long way to the top
But nothing worth having is easy and the view will be awesome
I know. I’ve been there
So one question
Who’s coming with me?
