If you want to transform IT, start with finance

This is a follow-up blog post to Ship It! #6 Money flows rule everything

  • To achieve anything significant you need funding
  • To get funding you need to persuade the people with the money to part with it
  • To persuade the people with the money, you need to understand what they value
  • To understand what they value, you need to understand how their cash flows work
  • To understand how their cash flow works, you need to understand
    • your customers/clients and how and why they part with their money
    • the legal and regulatory constraints on your business and how it operates

The rest gets even better. It was great to read your follow-up thoughts, Ian! 👍🏻

Ship It! Ship It! #6

Money flows rule everything

This week on Ship It! Gerhard talks with Ian Miell, author of Docker in Practice as well as Learn Git, Bash, and Terraform the Hard Way. They talk about being comfortable with the uncomfortable, focusing on the tech while keeping a holistic view of the business. Following the money flows is key. Ian explains this concept really well, and Gerhard feels fairly confident you will be better off if you pay attention. Let us know in the comments!
