Some say that a real leader is one who knows when to lead and when to follow. In the case of the tech sector, executives in leadership roles have a tendency to be deposed (usually for failing to meet a financial goal the company set), retire, or quite to move on to their next big project or company. It is a rare leader who is willing to give up the lion’s share of control for the benefit of their company and yet continue to work under their successor. Samuel J. Palmisano, former CEO of IBM, is one such impressive leader. Read more »

After years of working for companies with more than ten thousand employees, though, it can be nice to go work for a smaller company. Often executives who do are given greater responsibility and flexibility and that may lead them to a greater sense of satisfaction than they had at the bigger company. With more than a decade working for IBM and Lenovo, Brenda Grissom is now finding satisfaction and stimulation at Grissom Sheet Metal! Read more »

Over years, with hard work and additional training/education, the dream of the worker is to someday take over management of the company they started at. That dream comes true with increasingly less frequency as competition, mergers, and radical shifts in the marketplace have companies rising and falling faster than ever. But one of the great success stories for the American dream came true recently when Virginia Rometty took the reins at IBM! Read more »

For Rescuecom’s dedicated Blog readers: An Exclusive first look at this year’s Computer Reliability Report! The results are in for RESCUECOM’s Annual 2012 Computer Reliability Report; Lenovo/IBM returns to dominance while Samsung grows significantly!
“Entering 2012, Lenovo/IBM’s rise in reliability will be an important boost for the company. Although Apple’s market share has risen over the last 12 months, its reliability has declined. The comparatively smaller Toshiba and Samsung are illustrating interesting reliability trends worth watching over the coming year,” stated David Milman, CEO of RESCUECOM. For 2012, Rescuecom now includes all manufacturers with a market share of at least above one percent in this report.
The Computer Reliability Report scores for 2012 are:

With all of the rapidly-changing aspects of computer technology, it can be very hard to keep up. Indeed, for those who are casual computer users without real investment in the computer hardware industry, it was not so long ago that the USB port became the dominant interface port.

In the United States, students learn that there are two avenues to success: connections and higher education. While nepotism and interpersonal relationships certainly have their roles in advancing one’s career, nothing takes the place of hard work. But even those who work hard are told the only way to truly get ahead is by pursuing higher education. The technology sector confounds those expectations by advancing educated individuals who have great ideas and needed skills, as opposed to just higher degrees. One executive who has benefitted from corporations who value experience over degrees is Patti S. Hart.
Patti S. Hart is the Chief Executive Officer of International Game Technology, the maker of video slot machines, like Lucky Larry’s Lobstermania! Hart joined the Board of Directors of IGT in 2006 and ascended to CEO of IGT in 2009. Since becoming CEO, Patti Hart has expanded the influence of IGT in casinos and promoted the video game versions of IGT games, making International Game Technology even more profitable.
