We have opened up the Business Acumen files for another story. Here it is:
Jason used to be the go-to-IT guy before he became the manager of the department. The best technical retail operations expert the company had ever had, he keeps up with the latest advances in software and hardware and insists the company does the same. He wins awards in the IT world and has received accolades from the company for his forward-thinking approach.
Jason is way ahead of the competition when it comes to technological expertise…and, thanks to his insistence, so are the gadgets and gizmos that the company owns. He makes passionate presentations about the need to keep updating the company’s technology but doesn’t think it’s necessary to present a lot of detail, including financial implications.
The company needs to stay in the technology forefront despite financial implications, right?
Now it is your turn. What do you think? What would you do to develop a "Jason" in your organization?
