A recipe for success?

Viv Mcwaters

Taking risks means that they sometimes fail, and also potentially have fantastic successes. Recipes have their place. They provide a checklist and a reminder. They are a guide. And this is the beauty of recipes. There are two ways of writing a recipe. There’s the traditional approach that has a list of ingredients, followed by step-by-step instructions of what to do, with the occasional instruction to do something at the end to combine all the elements. .

Technology's Contribution to Success: 20%

Michael Sampson - Currents

In a white paper from 2008, Oracle pins the contribution of technology to success at a maximum of 20%. Very cool to see a major vendor say this in its materials. Nearly 80 percent of the issues that can affect your deployment and overall solution adoption involve factors that are unrelated to software products. To achieve your highest potential, it’s important to consider the effect that governance, strategy, people, process, and technology will have on your implementation. ".

Luckily he lives just down the road.

If Steve Was "Collaborative," Would Apple Be More Successful?

Yet it is a huge success. Evan: Well, there are always examples of companies that are successful even though they're command-and-control oriented. But the question I always ask is, "How much more successful would they be if they were truly collaborative?" ".
