Organizational Reach “Discovery”

I’d really like to see a third to half of ‘discovery’ come from the outside. I really want the doors open.

A.J. LafleyCEO, Procter & Gamble

Page 6: Washdc cto-0905-2003

Organizational Reach “Discovery”

“We require interaction with a tremendous

number

of experts who are in industry, government,

and universities all over the world, and there

are lots of interactions where the task needs

to be done and then the need disappears.

We’re talking not just one, two, or three

groups, but thousands…” Ford CalhounCIO, GSK

Mobility & Disconnected Ops

“Wherever I go, there I am”Buckaroo Bonzai, 1984

• In the basement at the customer site

• 30,000 ft.

• Disconnected/Connected
