Thinking differently starts with collaborating differently

Vanilla Ice told everyone to ‘stop, collaborate and listen’ because he had a brand new invention. He may have been a one hit wonder, but perhaps Vanilla’s advice is worth considering.

Sometimes we really do need to stop, think differently, listen, and collaborate. There are amazing opportunities to create some unique and powerful tools and solutions for the future within our business. Collaboration is paramount to achieving that because the whole truly is greater than the sum of its parts. And while certain songs fizzle into obscurity, the ambition to innovate can keep inspiring us to achieve greater things.

People often ask what we do. The simple answer is IT, but the details are far more intricate. Maybe a better question is ‘what don’t we do?’ The truth is we’re all learning something new every day. And that’s the way it should be.

Each of us has the opportunity to help create the future the next generation will inherit. Things that seemed crazy a few decades ago are today’s normal. We have the choice to be nervous about the future or we can be excited about being part of the solution.

Like Vanilla Ice said: “If there was a problem yo, I’ll solve it”. We need to embrace this thinking. Today’s problems are a gateway to tomorrow’s solutions. Our job is to identify the key aspects around technology that will ensure the future is a bright one. So let’s collaborate to create some amazing solutions that will inspire even greater technology for generations to come.
