Build products for yourself first
Posted by Chris on July 11, 2012
As a boutique consulting organization, everyone on the team is focused on delivering value to our clients and along the way developing tools to simplify our jobs. Over the past 20 years, we have worked with some great innovators in the IT space including Annrai O’Toole (Cape Clear, IONA), Sam Geisberg and Steven Walske (PTC), Greg Olson (Coghead) and Dave Duffield (Workday, Peoplesoft). A common thread from these innovators and others is in developing a solution that solves a customer need. While it is nice to dream up an earth shattering new concept, few of us have the forethought to do this. Start simple and focus on the customer or even more simply, your own needs. In our space it has to do with delivering products faster, cheaper and more consistently.
Over the next few months we will announce some solutions that are chipping away and automating our projects.
