Editor's Note; We are experimenting with a virtual wrapper for our July issue. The flyover is based on the same format used for our Over 150 past issues and 15 years in the collaborator. The graphical presentation is more people centric following the theme of this issue. Powered by a web service it should present well on all devices, as more and more of our readers are BYOD. Also here is a short url http://goo.gl/ahcnO7 to wrapper for tweeting. Please let us know if this is useful or just plain annoying……..smile. It is simply a different way to view the same information.

I find it interesting that in the blur of technology at this year’s IBcon in Vegas; the largest gathering of authorities with international case studies on the topic of open architected, interoperable and integrated IP centric smart, connected, high performance and intelligent buildings, my biggest takeaway is that it is the people of our industry many of who are part of our AutomatedBuildings.com collaboratory are our cashable assets, not technology.

Keynote Geoffrey MooreKeynote speaker Geoffrey Moore's, pragmatic and systematic approach to the chaos created by technological innovation provided insight and guidance to the adoption journey.

This was an excellent message for us all to get our heads around where we are on the adoption curve. In his presentation, The Innovation Adoption Curve and Its Relevance to Commercial and Corporate Real Estate, he mapped out all the milestones of the journey.

For more follow this link;

My observation is that your understanding of where on the adoption curve the technology around you and part of you is, is the value you bring to your company and our industry. “R U the asset?”  To invest and grow our companies assets we need to clone your knowledge and understanding. We as an industry and you as a company need to invest more of you (Time and Money) in the training and growth of those around you. Mentoring is an amazing feel good, do good, vehicle and every mentor should have a mentor, all working to create a network of brain trust to be part of your own company culture and collaboratory.

Paul’s article
does an amazing job of defining the task at hand and is a must read for our industry.

Addressing The Skills Gap  It’s time we as industry begin to focus our efforts on investing in the people necessary to properly apply all the great technology we have in order to deliver quality solutions that provide real value to end users. - Paul Oswald, President, Environmental Systems, Inc (ESI) 

For the survival of our industry we need to reach out and engage the bright minds who have grown up with the chaos created by technological innovation and share with them the wisdom and reason of our grey hairs and our lives of planting, growing, and nurturing truly smart intelligent buildings. Engage in mentorship and you will be amazed at what you learn from these bright minds, oh you thought you were the mentor….smile.

Create a new collaborator around your world that includes their world.  You will be amazed at how this will increase your assets.

If you review our 15 year online collaboratory you will understand better how everything we do fits into the next 15 year's adoption curve.
