Re: Great examples
Laurie - glad the word Joy caught your attention :)
seriously I compressed 300+ pages of conversations with excited tech leaders into this column - if you read tne book you see all kinds of humanoid robotics, semantic product memories, facial recognition, IoT examples. What was remarkable was only a small fraction of the interviewees were from Silicon Valley. Another startling data point - how fluent CEOs, CMOs - non IT execs - I interviewed were fluent in technology. And how even museums and railroads and other so called "laggard" industries are reinventing their operations with technology.
I started my career in the 80s and remember listening to Max Hopper discuss Sabre. Then for the next 20 years at PwC and Gartner I saw the drudgery of Y2K, ERP and other killjoy IT. In the last 5 years with 3 books I have seen a much more enjoyable tech environment for creative executives. This book just opened my eyes to how pervaisve across countries, industries and processes the opportunities for differentiating IT have become. The advantage as I mention though is fleeting so not all of it will be profitable for long but it should be joyful, for sure....
