IT Spending, It’s A Responsibility

February 6, 2009

Venture Capitalist Fred Wilson has a post titled; Always Treat Money Like It Is Your Own

As a SMB Business Technology Manager, this is a mantra that I try to live by. I would rather get scolded for not spending enough, or fast enough, than for too much.

I do not mean el-cheapo Bill & Teds made in the basement products, but I constantly ask myself what the risk is in delaying a purchase, or push back on some ‘We gotta have..’ purchase request.

If you are a tech in the SMB space, keep asking your self that question. If you had to pay for it yourself, would you still be spending that money buying it?
