Today we focus on Becoming Technology Tool Agnostic. For our purposes we define being Technology agnostic as to be unbiased towards the use of different technology or tools to solve different problems. It is also not to be too obsessed with Your tools. As professionals we have a responsibility to provide the best technical value to our customers/ clients, employers and stakeholders. Being technology agnostic requires that we step back and gain full understanding of what is required to meet project goals per time. Do listen, share with a friend and have an Amazing Week!
