Safe Is Risky

This month is National Stress Awareness Month with a specific focus on anxiety. What could possibly be more anxiety producing than the Deloitte “CFO Signals” report that found only 29% of CFOs say this is a good time to take greater risks.

Well, how about piling on that a new study from AlixPartners found 98% of CEOs say they need to “overhaul” their businesses within the next three years. How can you as an IT professional both stay the course and completely change everything?!

Reflecting on some of this tension, the AlixPartners study found that 85% of CEOs say they don’t know where to start to make changes. 

Simon Freakley, CEO of AlixPartners, observed:

“The pandemic forced business leaders to come to terms with the inevitability of disruption, but as we have subsequently seen, that was just a dress rehearsal…

“For those who move decisively and at pace, there is a tremendous opportunity to adapt and thrive amid the relentless disruption.”

Harvard Business Review discovered there is a difference in how “growth leaders” perform compared to their peers. Growth leaders take action in spite of the risk-aversion they may feel. Growth leaders seek a variety of informed points of view to take a calculated risk and know those who remain slow to act will get left further behind.

With eyes wide open to the risks in your Kubernetes environment, download the Shadow-Soft Architecture Map to identify where stresses exist today so you can proactively fix issues before they become problems. Remember that playing it safe can also be risky.
