Don’t Reject Cloud Technology Out of Unfounded Fears…
On a hot afternoon a number of years ago, I was sitting in a management training session as the session leader drew a chart on his whiteboard, representing the lifecycle of a company. There was a steep upward growth curve in his illustration, indicating the gains in traction and customers that an organization goes through. Invariably, at some point the growth curve peaks and then flattens, as if hitting a ceiling. This is a crisis point, where the company’s tried-and-true way of functioning has been stretched to its limit. The ability to transform and adapt is perhaps the most essential business survival skill one can learn.
Longevity implies the capacity to persist through and overcome challenges, often big ones; it implies a tolerance for risk, a willingness to accept change, and the vision to remain essentially true to who and what defines the enterprise in tumultuous times.
