Fair Over Cheap

Fair Over Cheap

What’s it worth to you? People love to tell you about the great deal they got on something. Hey Rob, I got this great deal on XYZ. Great isn’t that great? Everyone loves a deal. Everyone wants the lowest price. We live in a world where the lowest price wins. Things like value, quality and brand don’t hold a candle to price. But… There are other people who populate this planet that think a little differently.

We Are The Problem Police

We Are The Problem Police

Life is a game of cops and robbers. One of the core skills needed to work in the tech space is problem solving. Sure it’s a life skill. But to be any good in the tech world. You’ll need to be really good at problem solving. Nothing sucks more than calling someone for tech support and hearing that looming silence of uncertainty on the phone. Or worse yet. Getting someone on the line who clearly doesn’t know what they’re doing.

Going From Unmanaged To Managed Tech

Going From Unmanaged To Managed Tech

Growing up can be hard. Going from an unmanaged tech environment to a managed one can be challenging. One of the biggest challenges that people face when making the change to managed tech is tempering their DIY behaviors. We’re so used to watching do it yourself TV shows, learning things on YouTube, and tinkering. And that’s all good. But there’s a downside. And that is. We begin to associate DIY behaviors into other things, like your business. But managed tech doesn’t work like that.

Your Culture Matches Your Tech

Your Culture Matches Your Tech

Does a company’s culture match their tech? I think so. If your company is generally disorganized. Chances are your tech will also be—out of sorts. By the same token. If your company has a lot of rules and policies then more than likely… Will have tech with all sorts of intricacies with your tech, that may or may not need to be there. Chaos begets chaos. Calm begets calm.
