Forget The Cloud, Soon It'll Be The Edge

Thursday, March 21, 2019

Slow performance even with a good internet connection? Sluggish response times? There may be a solution. Technology is constantly improving and smart devices and personal computers are now more accessible to a broader range of users than ever before.

Thursday, January 31, 2019

Creativity and innovation are intrinsic to one another. And while the importance of innovation to the success of a business is well documented, I wonder how many leaders and managers encourage creativity amongst their team members both individually and collectively?

But it is often the creative ideas, the thinking outside of the box to solve a business issue or meet a customer requirement that can create the most success or the biggest breakthroughs.

The Power of Decentralising Decision Making

Tuesday, November 27, 2018

Flexibility and trust in the workplace have huge payoffs for both employees and employers alike.

It touches on his story about his time in the US military and what the impact of giving his teams the power to make autonomous decisions had on the overall performance of his troops. There is a great lesson in this article for managers and team members alike.  ...Read More
