Experimentation is at the heart of innovation and while it is the norm in creative fields, it is not always the ‘go-to’ approach in business. Many associate it with failure – while your experiment might be successful, it might also fail – and in business, no one wants to fail.

I have been working in the software industry all my working life in various roles. I started working for Computer Associates, as a customer services representative. After that, I moved into a direct tele-sales role and, when CA acquired Ingress, I moved into selling through partners. I had an incredible manager at this point, who took the time to mentor and coach me. After he moved to Progress, I followed him into a Partner Account Manager role. From this point, I started to grow within the company, working with distributors, partners and direct sales, and soon became an Enterprise Solution Selling Manager. I’m now in a Sales Management role, with the task of growing the Digital Experience Division for EMEA.

Software has ingredients. Predominantly consisting of software code at the most fundamental level, software applications and their elemental constituent parts are created by bringing together ingredient parts, often according to a specific recipe (or at least via some form of guiding cooking instructions) with additional nuances of functional spice that go towards deciding whether or not users will find the resulting product palatable.
