It’s increasingly difficult to produce examples of software or services companies that will escape a shift to—or at least a major embrace of—cloud computing. With this shift comes new business models, new channels, new products and services; in short, change and lots of it.
How you navigate this change will define the future of your business.
- Who owns the strategy?
- Who owns the P&L?
- Who wakes up every morning thinking about how to tackle the tough problems and transform the business?
- Who’s motivated, financially and otherwise, to truly care?
It’s not enough to take these issues on as a management team. This diffuses accountability and effectiveness.
So, who owns your future?
If your answer is anything but a single name of a senior executive, then the answer is no one.
