I don't know who Peter Drucker is, but Matt's quote attributed to him, is sound:
Apparently Peter is a kind of a big deal, at least according to Wikipedia:
Peter Ferdinand Drucker (/ˈdrʌkər/; German: [ˈdʀʊkɐ]; November 19, 1909 – November 11, 2005) was an Austrian-born American management consultant, educator, and author, whose writings contributed to the philosophical and practical foundations of the modern business corporation. He was also a leader in the development of management education, he invented the concept known as management by objectives and self-control, and he has been described as "the founder of modern management".
Even the best ideas will fall flat if the culture of the orginization refuses to adapt to service them. As I said last week:
The trick, I suppose, is knowing how much of the old ideas and processes are actually still required and why. ... In order to do that you need to understand more than just the business and the technical requirements. ... You have to understand the culture in which it will operate.
Idea: move everything to the cloud!
Culture: we must control every aspect of the infrastructure.
