Rip Van Winkle and Risk Management
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?
Too much meta!!!
