Gearhead’s Guide to a Down Economy: what a technologist should do

Presented by

Ken Anderson

About this talk

IT technologists thrive in our technology driven world. Corporations looking to expand, invest in new markets, or react to competition and strive to use IT as a competitive advantage. Thus it seems technologists are at their best when the economy is growing, investment is imperative, and creative technical knowhow is in short supply. In contrast, IT technologists struggle in a down economy as their department, once viewed as a competitive advantage, looks more and more like a cost center. In this Perspective, Executive Strategist Ken Anderson discusses the role of the technologists in a downward economy and what needs to be accomplished outside updating their resume.
