A change is taking place in the field of Information Technology and how owners of IT Companies learn to manage their business.
For many years, organizations such as the Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO) has existed which has allowed Presidents’ of companies, younger then 45 and with sales greater then $8 million annually to learn from like minded individuals. Organization like Young Presidents’ have brought together executives, from many different industries to share their success and failures.
Organizations such as YPO are fine for larger companies, but what about smaller organizations or organizations that wish to learn from other companies in the same industry. Such cooperation in one particular industry is very unusual since most company owners are loath to share their successes with their competitors.
So what is happening in the IT Industry where 200 plus companies meet on a regular basis, share their business strategies and financials and discuss their marketing plans freely?
I have discussed this concept with many business friends from industries outside of IT and they are literally in shock when I tell them that I meet once per quarter with other business owners from the exact same industry as me and we bare all about our business.
HTG (www.htgmembers.com) is a group for owners of IT companies of any age and company size. You are not required to employ 50 people and have $8 million in revenue. The only requirement to joining is a committment to executing on your plans and sharing your business experiences and methodologies with other members. A guiding principal of HTG is giving unconditionally and wanting to help your fellow company owner.
Not a believer?
Perhaps, but the approach is revolutionary and is changing the lives of many IT business owners
