IGNORANCE IS NO DEFENCE

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

BRAVO!

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

BRAVISSIMO!

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
