“Microsoft CIO Tony Scott on IT Strategy in 2009″ by Brian P. Watson (CIO Insight Magazine, April 2009). Check out Mr. Scott’s handy analogy about learning to drive a car:

Tony Scott: …The second thing is strategy. I compare that to when you first learn to drive a car. If you only look a few feet in front of the car, you wobble all over the road and steer around every little bump in the road. If you look down the road a bit, the car goes straighter, it’s a more enjoyable ride and you become a better driver.
