And, for IT, BlackBerry established a standard of security that protected even the most sensitive information with comprehensive policy support from a central management console.

Great email and great security were the hallmarks of the BlackBerry solution and no one else even came close to matching them in the first decade of this millennium..."

25 Nov 2013 Update Your Job Search [33880]
Harvard Business Review, November 25th, 2012

"Month by month, the job market keeps easing upward. Although we haven't fully made up the number of jobs that were lost in this recession, almost every industry has grown jobs since the economy hit rock bottom in February 2010. And there are plenty of new kinds of jobs that have been created since then, too.

Now this optimism is starting to spread. People who stayed glued to their jobs during the downturn are starting to dip their toes in the water to see if there is a new position out there for them. But while they have been hunkered down waiting for the recession to pass, the job market has been changing. If you have been at the same organization for five or more years, you are in danger of making some big mistakes that can completely derail your job search. Here's a handful of those pitfalls and how to avoid them..."

28 Oct 2013 Picking Your Successor [33505]
CIO Insight, October 15th, 2013

"For CIOs who aspire to excellence, and who may seek another corner office in the company, succession planning is one of the responsibilities that come with the job.

With apologies to Pete Townshend and The Who, the title of one of the British band's iconic rock albums seems a fitting place to start, and the question to ask, when it comes to CIO succession planning: Who's next?
