It’s really fascinating to see how ‘great minds think alike’. It’s about ‘naming’ ideas as concepts and software packages. But the world of software has become a Tower of Babel just as human languages. Who is to blame? What might we look forward to with a view to change?
- The Feminisation of Leadership – I was the only woman attending;
- Proper financing for innovation – innovators and SMEs with appropriate and financially sustainable ‘deals’ and arrangements rather than ‘exit strategies’ and one-off grants;
- A new ‘yardstick’ rather than ‘shareholder prices’ for IBM’s growth; I was told IBM’s growth depends on SMEs – how ethical is that?
- Responsibility for long term thinking and the next generation – not just quarterly reports: my forecasting method is the perfect tool for investigating trends;
- General bridge building – between the masculine analytical and techie mindset and the feminine associative and practical way of thinking.
