Entrepreneurs – Stay On Target

Being an entrepreneur and fighting everyday constraints to success can be hard, break you down and make you question everything. Reality is that, what is going around you, actually has no impact on what you are doing, but what the market is doing. As long as your value-proposition and engagement model differentiates you should concentrate on your objective for success.

You may experience that you are losing a couple of wing-mans, a some of the fights. What is most important is to focus your effort on the outcome, and analyze the income.

I can only use the following reference to help you focus. Entrepreneurs, please…

Why Microsoft Has A Winning Strategy

Last week I spend a great deal of time on meetings with partners and customers at this years Microsoft World-Wide Partner Conference (the WPC). Cloud has settled as the true change shifter, I totally agree as I have lived this strategy since web services 0.1 – nearly a decade now. I must say that I am going to announce Microsoft as a future winner. My fellow readers know and understand my close relations to Microsoft, but I will let you in on my points, for announcing “Microsoft A Winning Strategy”.

  1. The coming decade is about change, and new economic. Microsoft is “all in” (hate the term), but fueling and suppoting its 650.000 partners to understand the urgency and need to shift.
  2. The coming decade is about “developers, developers and developers”. Actually is is about innovation and new ways of doing business, but developers are the key to this success.
  3. The coming decade is about the right skills, the right people and the right strategy.
  4. The coming decade is about strong relationsships – with your partners, but more importantly with your customers. We need to help them transition.

I will share this slide with you, as I believe it holds the elements of a future winning strategy. I will no more share my reasons for this slide – but sell the reasons to you. I believe we hold the keys and strategies to the future blockbusters of the software industry, and Microsoft is supporting the venture.

I can wait for this decade to escalade.

Merry Christmas to All…

Dear All, Merry Christmas! The economy went down the drain this year: People was layed off, shops went bankrupt. Depression was suddenly a part of the family dinner table all over the world, and depths are still uncollected. My wish list is short this year, and very non-materialistic.

Let’s hope for a prosperous 2010. Let’s enjoy a christmas of family, rather than toys and things we never use anyhow. Spend 30 minutes more with your children. Kiss you wife twice the amount you did yesterday. Economy can fall, but you still have the most important things around. Respect them and do one thing for this blog:

Enjoy the silence, don’t read this blog in December and have a merry, merry christmas to you all!
