Do you really have GIS Thought Leaders in your Company or Organization?
March 21st, 2014 by Matt Sheehan
Company Web sites often prominently display their ‘leaders’. Organizations usually have their in-house GIS gurus. But have you ever stopped to ask the question:
“Do we really have GIS thought leaders in our company or organization?”
Sure you can have MBA’s or over-qualified GIS nerds coming out the ying-yang. But do you truly have decision makers who understand the revolution we are now experiencing in the world of GIS?
Still too many ‘leaders’ and ‘gurus’, sit on their comfy perches. And just don’t get it
Today its all about threats and opportunities.
No more faking. Get up to speed, or step aside.
If you are confused, lost, unsure. Pull your head out of the fog. Times a ticking. Your companies future depends on it!
If you are hoping clients will point you in the right direction. Think again.
Your products and old ways are your biggest threat. Those “who get it” will be putting you out of business.
Opportunities – A New World of Possibilities
Incredible opportunities are ahead for applying GIS technology.
Consumers, executives, maintenance staff, citizens. Everyone will benefit.
Every vertical, every sector, every industry will leverage location based technology.

But are you ready?
