The job market seems much better lately, and more and more offers are being extended to applicants. Some move into the new positions from other jobs and others from being in transition.

With a backdrop that could convince anyone to stay

All my life, I’ve loved fixing and improving things, whether I’m tinkering in the garage or revamping a company’s strategy. That love is what brought me to NCR in 2005, where I was tasked as CEO with fixing an unsustainable business model.

NCR was losing its market share and hemorrhaging revenue. The company’s most valuable asset was Teradata, a data warehousing software that had little to do with NCR’s business. And the company lacked the strategy or infrastructure to adapt to the technological changes sweeping the world. There was a lot to do.

Now, over a decade later, NCR has transformed itself into an industry leader with an eye to the future. To get there, we had to make several adjustments to the way things had been done for decades. It wasn’t easy, but we made the changes necessary to...

Amazon Is Huge Because It Started With A Great MVP

Whenever you talk to someone about launching a business, they have these dreams of starting a massive company. Their product is going to be the next Instagram or SnapChat or Uber.
