But the monster is loose, and there is an influential posse that is now gunning to get rid of ALL development, because ‘we can’t do it as well as [insert name of favourite packaged software supplier here] because they have so many developers/so much R&D money’. See the previous post about where I think that puts me.
Now, it may be true. Maybe there ISN’T anything that this company does differently that give it an advantage – in which case I should get out before it is overrun by somebody else that does. Or maybe it DOES have ‘hi-diff:lo-def’ processes that provide an advantage that we don’t recognise/capitalise on – in which case I should get out before we let somebody else take advantage of it, and the company is overrun … and THAT’S why it’s time to get interested in networking!
