Technology Leadership: Is Vision and Change All it Takes?

The same story. Nevertheless, the inclusion conversation remains, because regression remains. For the past two years the percentage of IT leaders has remained the same, according to the global survey of chief information and the 2017 Harvey Nash KMPG CIO survey.

Should a Master Take Holidays Off?

Should a Master Take Holidays Off?

Plagiarism is not simply a matter of taking what someone wrote and writing the same thing, but a matter of personal integrity. When one plagiarizes they put their entire reputation on the line.  A reputation can take years to rebuild because of one mistake, and in the eyes…
