One hoot for Obamacare

I’m still annoyed at the way the Affordable Care Act was passed. Remember this quote: “You have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it.” That’s no way to run a railroad, let alone pass landmark legislation.

Some CIOs end up in positions where they don’t have much power, they take punches each day, and they are the very definition of lambs. Others are a bit like Eddie Haskell — they’re wolf-like bullies to their staff underlings but put on a polite façade when dealing with the chief executive.

Fusion 2014: Don’t dismiss disruptive business models

Thanks to information technology, that ever-present enabler of speed and agility, traditional business models are under attack from a bevy of online services, and any business organization that presumes immunity will be in for a big, fat surprise.
