This blog is a venue for me to share my views on the most likely future state of business, productivity, competition and the technologies that will power the successful.
The concept of a blog did not exist when I started my first company Onyx Software in 1994. It was a constant challenge to outline all my thoughts on the future state of CRM, and outline the how's and why's. We were routinely to market 2 years ahead of other vendors in major phase shifts in the CRM landscape (a combined Sales-Marketing-Service product in 1994, Web Access in 1996, Hosted CRM in 1998, Web-Services Architecture in 2000,...), but did not benefit commensurately in the 'awareness' category as we were dependent on analysts and others like the Gartner Group to catch up vision-wise and write about us.
Not so for Smartsheet, which I founded with Maria, John and Eric in 2005. In these pages I'll detail my vision, our solutions, customer successes, lots of 'how to', and hopefully provide some very useful content for people to use in bettering their own businesses.
Most importantly, I'll attempt to demonstrate this blog's headline by using Smartsheet's awesome Work Management Platform to orchestrate the world's resources and do work for you readers. I'll spend a few minutes a day generating lists you can't find or can't afford. You'll be amazed at how much productivity is left to be wrung out of the global economy with just two key things: visionary technologies like Smartsheet and those select few individuals that are the 'get it done' people within their teams around the world.
