Technology is a moving target. There is an a syndrome I like to call, “the computer as a typewriter”. In my mind this is where individuals and organizations look at new technology as replacement tools.. i.e. - . the computer replaced the typewriter on my desk so thats what is - a new “hi-tech” typewriter.
The “winners’ in the game of growing technology are those who look around the corner and see whats coming and how to gain advantage. If you are buying tools to make it easier to fabricate something you’ve already produced you are moving in the wrong direction. New technology demands new ways of thinking, while offering new solutions and opening new paradigms.
Don’t be an organization that buys the tools to manufacture someone else’s formula. Get the tools and hire the people that allows you to make your own solutions so that you can grow with the technology and shape it in a way that best fits your desires and goals.
