IOS' Age-Defying Secret

By Brian Kopack

Technology at your fingertips

Collaborative work environment

Totally-immersive approach to problem solving

Thought I was describing your company / division / department, didn’t you?  Or, maybe you wish I was.  Go ahead - admit it.

That is what my daughter’s 1st grade looks like in 2014.  Each student gets an iPad.  They work in groups.  The education strategy focuses on project-based learning.

Elementary school today doesn’t look anything like how it did back in my day.  I might as well be from Pluto. As a product of chalkboards, desks in straight lines, lots of memorization and ruler-wielding nuns (sorry Sister Felicity, I really am), it is hard to believe what 6/7 year olds are being exposed to today.  Things have changed so dramatically, Pluto isn’t even a planet anymore.  But I digress.

Your business isn’t the same either.  If you’ve been at the same company or in the same line of work for a long time, almost everything you knew when you started has changed. When I started in public accounting 20+ years ago, Price Waterhouse made sure I had an adding machine, plenty of mechanical pencils and a life-time supply of 24-column paper. Those were the good old days.

What prompts change?

Ideas.

Take what you have always known. Add a splash of creativity and leverage the power of technology and presto – a new, more excellent normal.

Ideas change everything.

Great ideas and willingness accept change, not fear it, create revolutionary opportunities.

At IOS, everything we do is based on the very simple philosophy that it’s the idea that matters.
