I enjoy reading Jennifer Matt’s article. It reminded me of a talk at RIT by Chuck Geschke, Adobe co-CEO (with John Warnock) many years ago. He stressed the need to have three kinds of people, working together, in order to build a successful software company: arrow shooter, scout, and road builder. An arrow shooter sees opportunity at far distance (vision). A scout finds out what’s possible and pushes his boundaries (strategic). A road builder makes things happen (tactical).

THANK YOU. I love the arrow shooter, scout, and road builder idea.

Also honored to be part of ANY sentence that includes Geschke and Warnock.
