HTG Peer Groups Blog
The HTG peer group experience is a unique forum for technology industry resellers who are serious about implementing a model for success in their own businesses through sharing and collaboration of best practices.
Gazing into the future
This week I had the opportunity to join Stuart Crawford on his blogtalk radio and discuss what I see for the future of MSP providers. I have been working on this concept for some time, trying to gaze into the crystal ball and determine "where the puck is going" if you will, for our SMB clients and their needs. I have settled on this diagram to define my current thinking.
Stuart dubbed this the business triangle - that works for me. You can download the audio of our discussion from his site at this link: http://sbsc.itsuccessmentor.com/arlin.mp3. No guarantee that I am any more right than anyone else when looking into the crystal ball. But my gray hair should tell you I have been wrong more than most and hopefully have learned something from those experiences. One thing I will guarantee - it is going to change. What we do today to serve our clients will not be the solution to their needs in the years ahead. So start star gazing, and make some plans for what your company will look like 3-5 years down the road. This is where I believe we need to head.
