The past year has been unlike any other period in human history. As we look to the future, now is the time to undertake three major steps.
First, we need to reunite – as individuals; as PTC; as an industry; and as a world of individual communities united in a single purpose and vision – to leverage ICT technologies to help the people of the Pacific Rim and beyond. After months of limited contact, this is a great chance to engage in dialogue, reunite with old colleagues and business partners, and discuss the issues and opportunities that face us.
Second, we need to rethink many things – work from home, learn from home, hybrid work, shifting network traffic, new organization structures and partnerships, disruptive technologies, new regulatory directions, new consumer and business customer needs, and new practices and protocols.
Third, we need to move thought into action and renew – ourselves and our organizations. January is the time to implement new strategies, new sales approaches, new people in new roles, and recommit to existing initiatives. Whether through incremental steps or dramatic digital transformation, the steps we put in place now will define our success in the future.
