Technology - The Leadership Conundrum

Is Top Management unknowingly sabotaging its organization’s competitive advantage? We generally think of the people who hold the top management positions in an organization as “the most experienced”; leaders that are qualified to make the tough decisions, set competitive strategies and chart the course for the future.  We make the assumption that they know what Read the full article…

 
Collaboration: What is it?

Collaboration is not a technology; it is a behavior.  To be precise, Collaboration is the process where two or more people, or organizations, work together to realize a shared goal ~ a pretty straight forward definition, right?  So, why do I bother to define it?

Copper Sunset: The Obsolescence of Copper AV Systems

A few nights back, I was having dinner with a friend of mine that is in the audiovisual business.  He is a representative of a major manufacturer and, as you might expect, it did not take long for our conversation to drift to the topic of technology.  We began by discussing my recent blog post Read the full article…

 
Conversion - A to D and what it means to Thee...

It’s time to plan ahead for a technology change that you will not be able to avoid; and its impact will cause more than just disruption fatigue.  There is a migration subtly taking place that will, without proper near-term budgeting and planning, surprise most organizations.  And, it is a big, inconvenient and expensive change.

The Last Days of the Technology Revolution (Conclusion)

The Technology-Biology Interface challenge which I have been writing about, until recently, has been primarily a technology challenge.  Quite simply, the technology and, therefore, the resulting products were not able to address the challenges of working in a group setting.  This, however, is changing rapidly leaving in its place the remaining obstacles, which are very Read the full article…

How do we work together and share information in a group setting?  (Keep in mind that, today, a “group setting” no longer means that all of the participants are in the same location.)

The Last Days of the Technology Revolution (Part 2)

In my last post, I wrote: We are in a time that Historians will define as “The last days of the Technology Revolution”.  I agree that this statement sounds a little extreme – So, what do I mean?  In order to answer that question, we need to understand how Historians define the Industrial Revolution.
