To assume that ‘business as usual’ IS ‘business as usual’ is to assume that it’s ‘business as usual’. ‘Business as usual’ is not ‘business as usual’, for this needs to be crystal clear.
I like my job….. I get to talk with many execs and business leaders. I like to listen, I like to understand the daily challenges faced in rapidly shifting corporate focus and vision. It’s unbelievable that I get so much quality time with these kind of people. I embrace the challenge of solving pain points through knowledge, experience and fantastic teamwork. The means of identifying game changing ideas and innovations which make even the staunchly resistant sit up and think twice, questioning peoples assumptions of ‘business as usual’.
The new ‘business as usual’ falls under 2 rainbows. First, changing our perception of ‘business as usual’. Second, reducing the cost of doing the new ‘business as usual’.
Normally it’s one or the other. In times of economic growth you can hire the best people, invest in the greatest technology, innovative and deliver new exciting stuff. When it’s grey everything’s on hold. Management inform their Indians to slash spend and innovation’s out of the door.
Cloud driven innovation and cost reduction are no longer mutually exclusive.
Cloud driven innovation and cost reduction IS the new ‘business as usual’.
For those companies who don’t know, it’s tricky. And for those who do, it’s opportunity.
