Guy DuBois, Vice President of Operational Technologies and Solutions for Raytheon Company’s Intelligence and Information Systems business doesn’t have a blackberry. And it’s not because he’s a Luddite either. He sets aside a few hours each day to answer his emails. But he refuses to carry a blackberry.
Why? Because Guy wants his team to be proactive, to make on the spot decisions without always having to check in with him. PDAs – whether it’s a blackberry, palm or Q create 24/7 accessibility that may hamper effective decision making at the lowest level. Guy says he doesn’t want his people to “flush up” their decisions to him.
Question: Are you managing your email or is your crackberry managing you?
