Primarily my musings on the practical application of technology and management principles at a financial services company.
Does This Really Need to be Said?

Saturday, February 01, 2003  

Every time I think common sense has pervaded business, I come across an article that implies people still aren't getting it. OK, here's the deal -- if you are in business, and you spend money on technology that neither adds value nor saves money, you must be doing one of two things:

1. Transforming the organization radically in a gamble to change the way business is conducted or the industry you're in, a la Andy Grove's "inflection point".

2. Spending the company into the ground because you're a blithering fool.

God help the employees working in either company.
