The Hardware Foundry
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Sometimes in life, you have to put up or shut up. You have to put your money where your mouth is. You have to lead, even if you don't have the time. You have to try something that you think is right--or, might be right, but you're not sure--even if a lot of other people say you are crazy, or if they listen quietly and are not enthusiastic about the idea because they don't see what you do. This happens a few times in a good life, and that is what I face as I launch something I have called Hardware Foundry. READ MORE >

As I See It: Fearless Leaders
by Victor Rozek

Your name is Henry McKinnell and for the past six years you have been struggling on the job. By exacting corporate standards, where results are the measure of intentions, there is not much in your performance that demonstrates anything but a steadfast intention to get by on mediocrity. Secretly, you're tired of all the pressure and weary of all the complaints. It would be nice just to walk away, to leave the mess for someone else to sort out, but retirement is so uncertain these days. READ MORE >
