When a girl geek has her silver techie knickers on she knows what technology is available to support her business; she knows what the tech adds and has a strategy for keeping track of trends
She asks herself…
Should I be wearing these?
(Can I outsource this? Do I need to develop these skills?)
What has already been done?
(Don’t reinvent the wheel – be inspired by and adapt existing excellence)
Is there flexibility in this that will protect it from obsolescence?
How many tasks can I automate/simplify with tech?
How user-friendly is this?
Exactly how much do I need to know myself about the inner workings?
(But, what will I do if the tech support lets me down?)
How do I know when to stop?
Have I thought through everything before the “tech step”? (Don’t waste the time of your tech team – focus on their strengths)
