Rip Van Winkle and Risk Management

By Dan Hadaway | Tuesday, May 18, 2010 - Leave a Comment

I’ve been thinking about next week’s speech and how technology trends are all so inter-related.   I’m finding that you can not discuss a particular technology trend without discussing many technology trends.   And I’m finding that there are meta-trends . . . . trends of trends.   Beyond the standard meta-trends like Increase Revenue, Decrease Cost, and Manage Risk, there are also interesting ones such as “merging consumer and commercial technologies” or “technology planning.”

Somebody in the IT Governance Program . . . and I’ll volunteer Information Security Officers if nobody else wants to do it, since they’re already in the business of compiling ever-changing information (threats, vulnerabilities, controls) . . . . . must be assigned to the task of facilitating structured discussion among our key team members about all these inter-related, confusing, and often meaningless trends.

Yes, I wrote meaningless on purpose.  Because way too often we get all hyped up about new “trends” that turn out to be nothing.

I hope to keep you posted on what I find as I discuss this with my friends and associates.    I might also try to use the “commenting features” of this blog to facilitate a discussion about how we facilitate discussions! A meta-discussion?

Ahhh!

Too much meta!!!
