Top takeaways from the episode to help you push the industry forward.
- The first thing is the need to democratize your tech stack. Make it “our tool” as a company and not just a particular department. This will help to create greater buy-in throughout the company. To successfully accomplish this, you will need to know, address, and communicate the benefit for each department. Spend some self-reflection time looking in the mirror.
- It is ok to play into people’s competitive edge and look for those win-win situations. Embrace your inner competitor. It will help you look for ways to improve efficiencies through technology. If you need some motivation, your competitor is already doing this.
- You must have the right people in place to develop the right processes to implement the right tools. Remember People. Processes. Tools.
