Keeping the lights on

Well, my talk on Dealing with Innovation at the conference seemed to go down well. Talked about the different ways we can innovate, and how a common thread from CIOs is that we are "too busy keeping the lights on" to innovate, like this article.  Too busy just keeping things going to do anything new, and too fearful of taking risks to innovate. this metaphor has never really rung true with me, and it was while I was doing some research for the talk I came upon this blogpost - "Why it's time for CIOs to kill off the term keeping the lights on". Interesting reading - worth a look.

Right, must dash - I've a holiday to start. Back blogging in a couple of weeks!
