My Boss – Phil – In The National Post Talking “Upsize Innovation”

Phil, who is my boss and President of Microsoft Canada, has a great article talking about the importance of innovation and technology in tough economic times.

“As instability continues to ripple through the global economy, it's clear that no one is immune to the effects of tighter credit and slower consumer and business spending.

But while it's impossible to predict how long the current uncertainty will last or what the final impact will be on jobs and growth, I am optimistic about long-term economic prospects, here and around the world.

There's no doubt that this is a time when thoughtful business leaders must carefully assess how best to utilize their resources to weather the uncertainty that lies ahead. I believe information technology can play an important role in helping companies respond to this difficult and rapidly changing economic environment.”
