Dave Gardner’s “Thank God It’s Monday” 21NOV11

“Thank God It’s Monday” is to help companies thrive!

This week’s focus: business execution

I was invited to attend the Dell KACE Konference in San Francisco this past week, an event my spell-checker doesn’t like very much. Here’s my take-away:

Dell KACE is “the Apple” in its industry–addressing system administration problems with straight-forward, elegant, pragmatic technology solutions that customers crave.

The audience wasn’t concerned about the veracity of new solutions being created–that seemed to be a given. Their concern was “how soon will this be available?”  If I had to assign a tag line to the development team, it would be something like, “We do the heavy lifting so you won’t have to.”

We live in a technologically complex world. Organizations that simplify complexity will thrive.

Thought for the week:

“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” – Albert Einstein

What do you think? I welcome your blog comments!

  1. “Organizations that simplify complexity will thrive.” Spot on, Dave.

    I also love your idea of a tagline for teams. Maybe if every organization provoked each of their departments or teams to do likewise that would be the first step in simplifying their efforts — resulting in a thriving organization overall.

    Happy Thanksgiving.
