If you thought last year was head-spinning, hang on for 2014 — and be ready for whatever mobility brings this year.
Even though 2013 brought enormous change to the mobile landscape, mobility in 2014 will likely surpass last year’s disruptive impact. As field managers well know, this is a mixed blessing.
While you’d love to declare a cease-fire in the mobility wars to absorb and consolidate what you’ve learned, you also recognize that’s a luxury you can’t afford. As the mobile ecosystem continues its rapid, Moore’s-Law-driven evolution, competitors (and sometimes employees) will leave you behind if you don’t keep up. As the analogy goes, it’s like changing a tire on a moving vehicle.
