New CEOs typically inherit all manner of **** systems
A legacy their forebear didn’t sort out before moving on
I mentioned this to a newly minted #CEO yesterday and he said what’s inherited isn’t the problem
It’s simply that many don’t understand the role IT will play in the future of business
And that’s why systems ending up like that in the first place
I’m all for calling a spade a spade and getting to the root of the problem
He then said that changing leader may well be a case of too little too late
I wrote recently about legacy systems, and how the #modernisation can has been kicked down the road
I said, “Yes, the lights are on, but for how much longer?”
And he finished by saying the size of the organisation “is scarily irrelevant”
HOLY MOLY, I THINK WE’RE SHARING A BRAIN!
I wrote a book that says much the same
I love CEOs that get IT!
EVERY BUSINESS SHOULD HAVE ONE!
We are in an unparalleled tech revolution
The future arrived yesterday and tomorrow may already be a distant memory
This is no time for conservatism
If you want to take part, investing in IT is the only way
And if you need help, just ask
It’s why people like me exist
Because ignorance is never a good defence
