At least according to Microsoft a few years ago, and if that’s true then the earth will be led by a new breed of technology leader…I call them the “Alpha Geek”. In a room full of Alpha Males or Females you can quickly find him or her by listening carefully, they are speaking a new language for technology professionals. For these people have evolved from simple Geeks and propeller heads into technology leaders who understand it’s not just about the technology. As a matter of fact, they have come to realize, like many of us, that in the absence of effective process and well trained people, technology can actually make a business situation worse.
