re: FedEx Makes Strategic Shift
They'll tell their employees that they're the key to their success but their actions indicate that their employees are expendible! According to a USA today article, it appears that Fed Ex will be offering computer repair services too! Is this type of service offering part of their core business or competences? It's a numbers game and I've experienced it from the inside as a former truck driver who has recently reinvented himself with a Bachelors Degree in Computer Science specializing in Computer Information Systems. My hope is that they outsource the work to American companies located in the USA!

re: FedEx Makes Strategic Shift
FED X is joining the bandwagon. The disassembly of the American I.T. workforce. Recycle employees to contractors. People do not matter any longer, it is all about money. Time to Recycle the entire country and get new leadership that believes in America, the American workforce, and humanity.
This is not an upgrade, but a down grade. Do you think that Obama care is really going to be as good as the Corporate plan? Hummmmm....... This has been happening around the country for the past 12 years. Everyone will be a contrator....or replaced by India! " FedEx posted $361 million profit in its most recent quarter on $10.95 billion in revenue." They cannot afford full time I.T.????

re: FedEx Makes Strategic Shift
FedEx is making a move I've been advocating for a long time, and that is to focus on what are their core competences! If a large company like FedEx is doing it, what about those to whom IT is an even lesser area of world-class expertise!

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
