Finished reading Business @ the Speed of Thought: Succeeding in the Digital Economy by Bill Gates. This book offers a 12-step program for companies wanting to drive their business into the digital millennium. Business @ the Speed of Thought is full of examples from companies that have engineered information networks to manage inventory, sales, and customer relationships better.
Published in 2000, several of the technology aspects of this book are out of date. Specific technology aside the philosophy of Business @ the Speed of Thought still holds true. I’m surprised how many companies still don’t fully embrace the business advantages that technology can provide. Although the technology is dated I think the Business @ the Speed of Thought is still a good read and provides a vision of the technological advantages still to come.
