Love the quote

Culture isn’t just one aspect of the game – it is the game

What sort of culture do you have at work?

Lou Gerstner really got it right when he came to the above conclusion.  If you have the wrong culture then the organisation will increasingly struggle to capitalise on its technology, process and products - no matter how good they are.

“Culture eats strategy for breakfast, technology for lunch, and products for dinner, and soon thereafter everything else too.”
Peter Drucker

Its all to easy to think that with a great idea comes success - or that a monopoly today means an enduring and successful organisation, but the reality is that without a culture fit for purpose then even rock solid positions are eroded..

Something to think about on anyway...

I used to think corporate culture didn’t matter. Discussion of vision, mission and values was for people who couldn’t build product or sell it! We had..

a new compatibility mode that allows organizations to run web apps written for Internet Explorer 8

This is something thats been sorely lacking for quite some time.  Legacy systems on which Enterprises rely are often not forward compatible and as such companies cannot run modern browsers, increasing the likelihood of vulnerabilities and giving users a poor experience.

And there are even looking to get this feature into the Win 7 version!

Unlike previous IE launches, Microsoft will update the Windows 7 version at the same time it launches the Windows 8.1 Update.

Cattle and grazing reduce desertification? Now that's the opposite of what has been argued for years
 
Allan Savory shows how to stop global warming, reverse desertification, save lives, and ensure even the poorest a routine steak dinner.

Raising the Retirement Age

It seems to me the challenge isn't raising the age of retirement by government decree but rather in shifting societies attitudes about an aging workforce

As people become older and older their "employ-ability" is reduced and it is the role of the pension to provide them with a safety net that will allow them to live without work.  Perhaps we should be staging how much the pension is allocated towards a person based on their age so that at the age of 65 yeah receive significantly less than at 70.  Or 80.

Sub 42 minute 10k run?  Happy with that.  That has to be the fastest 10k run in at least a decade for this little Vegemite.  Heck, I even managed to neg split, with the second half four seconds quicker than the first!

I have my first ever Xterra in about three weeks and that is plenty of motivation.

They have been talking about this for ages.  I like how the image is of Steve Balmer :-)
Remember when software giant Microsoft made a big deal back in May 2013 about how it was going to launch two new Australian datacentres for its Windows Azure cloud computing service? At the time it seemed as though the company’s plans were quite advanced and that we’d be seeing Australia-based Azure in short order. Well, almost a year has come and gone since that time and Microsoft has so far failed to deliver. The latest blip of news on the clou...

I really struggle with getting to the gym for my strength workouts and this kettle bell work looks like a pretty good alternative
 
I'm all about maximum exercise benefits in minimum time. But a common belief is that there is really only one way to build endurance - to train the house down.

But today, I'm giving you one simple tool and three basic exercises to get gain massive endurance in minimum time.

6pm. Mission: find dinner for this ravenous stomach of mine which hungers for something more than classic pub fare. 6:30pm I've just sat down in this small restaurant and the smells emanating from the kitchen are placing my nose into sensory overload. It smells so good! 6:55 have just finished the first course - a modest salad of yoghurt, capsicum and a mix of herbs and spices which tantalise the taste buds and leave me wanting more. I await the main course with breathless anticipation... 7:30 mission accomplished. Main course devoured. Stomach satiated. Taste buds continue to reminisce about the plethora of flavours which gave so recently passed their way
