Happy to let you know that Forrester's first webinar on the future of "IT" is finally here. It is titled "From IT To Business Technology — A View From Business Process And Application Development And Delivery Executives." Go to their website for more info:

Calling young innovators

A call to "Adopt a young innovator" in the book The Innovator's DNA has inspired me into action. I'd like to mentor one young innovator, drawing from my experience coming up with innovations, institutionalizing innovations, and delivering new value to customers (more).

I will choose and help one young person to "grow up acting different, thinking different, and, in the end, making a difference in a world bursting with complex, challenging problems."

If you are a young innovator who would like to use this opportunity, please write. You may either use the Comment option below or email me at
