For the majority of my career I have been a consultant.  An information technology consultant.  A geek.  While the lifestyle (no, consulting is not just a career) afforded me opportunities to travel a bit, see different parts of the world, experience different foods and people, it came at a price: family time.  The importance of work-life balance, not missing so many "firsts" with my four children, and enjoying the fruits of my labors a bit in the moment (as opposed to the perpetual "some day") is more important than maintaining gold status with a given airline.  I needed to realize that and work towards right sizing my work life.

Beyond racking up status points, I also highly valued the customers who saw me as their "trusted advisor" for all things within my area of expertise.  Building the laundry list of skills like a buzz-word dictionary to describe what I "do".  So, what do I do?  I have always gravitated towards collaboration as a focus area of expertise.  Over the years this discipline has been referred to as knowledge management, or more recently social collaboration, or others I cannot think of at the moment.  Regardless, my career has been largely centered around helping people work together better, faster, or more efficiently.  I do not see this entirely changing, but for me it is evolving.

This brings me to the topic at hand, which is Coda Global.  This latest chapter in my career is built on the same foundation as always, helping people work together better, but with a twist.  Among other focus areas, Coda is a product company, and I am the first to bear the title of Conductor.  Our business platform is a cloud solution, built with a combination of open source and proprietary IP, designed to provide large enterprise like capabilities to small and medium size businesses in an affordable and flexible manner.  Conductors in music help direct and shape the performance of a group, so too do Coda Conductors  We take the base platform (our score) and work with customers and our service professionals (the orchestra) and deliver a solution (performance) to solve the complex and sometimes unique needs of our customers.  The most significant difference for us is that we do not see each of the movements of our piece as stand alone engagements, but rather a variation on the theme, which offers opportunity for features and capabilities to find their way back into the product.   This productized approach also affords us the opportunity to be prescriptive with certain behaviors and aspects of the tooling, but our services arm is capable of tailoring to the business needs of the individual customers we work with.

So, take a moment to get to know Coda Global.  Understand our differentiators and capabilities.  Perhaps we can bring better harmony to your organization too.

What a motto?
Fri, Apr 22nd 2016 9:21a   David Greenstein
... "Nuthin', what's a motto you?" (Lion King)I can't hear the word motto without thinking about Timon and Pumba. Now a bit more than 30 days into the job, motto had become super important to me of late. It may sound as if I am simply "drinking the Kool-Aid", but when you have a good motto, its worth talking about. Coda's motto (or tagline) is Do something great. Every day. Being in the software business, there is a very real risk of missing the mark with your solution should it co
