INATT is pessimistic and self-defeating, even if it's not intended to be. It denies that there can be improvements, incremental or radical, in the ability of technologies to accomplish important goals. I disagree categorically with this. . . .
I think I may have even said this last week. In that case it really wasn't about the technology. But more often than not, It's not about the technology alone. as Andrew McAfee says.
IMHO technology is going to steam roll a lot of people and companies in the coming decade. Many are in denial. We are in an age where generations and generations of platforms have accumulated and we are drowning in technical debt. And we have generations of people that are accustomed to doing everything on computers, cell phones, and the Internet. These people will be the majority in 10 years.
Of course business execution aside from technology is crucial. The problem is that technology is becoming more and more crucial to business execution. INATT denies the freight train coming towards many businesses.
I predict that more and more companies will be coming to terms with the fact that it is about the technology like Amazon did. What happens when there is the Amazon of your industry?
