Just in case I haven’t made myself abundantly clear so far, so little of what I’m writing about is anything to do with computers. They do get an honourable mention from time to time and they are the means by which a lot of this is actually done, but let’s be clear…
IT’S NOT ABOUT COMPUTERS
You don’t need to be an IT geek to understand this stuff, any more than you need to be a mechanic to drive a car. They’re just tools that we use to do a job in exactly the same way that a fleet of delivery vehicles does its job.
Foundation is about one simple concept. It’s about building a base that will support you for whatever it is you want for your business. That’s it. Nothing more. Just that one simple statement.
For some of you, a hitherto unseen elephant has suddenly appeared and is now occupying the room. You’ve just realised that you’ve been missing the blindingly obvious and now understand that you’re not actually sure what the plan really is: and there’s the rub.
Unless you know the needs and wants of your business, how can you possibly go out and get it?
Building a foundation requires that you understand both where your business is today, and where it’s heading so that your IT can enable it.
