Lotus Leadership Alliance


This week, most of the Sametime product management team is in Boston for the Lotus Leadership Alliance meeting. "LoLA" brings together many of our customer and partner councils, giving them the opportunity to provide direct input into the coming year's product and marketing plans. Personally, I enjoy LoLA because it runs counter to all the stereotypes that surround IBM. Things like: we only travel in packs of 5 or more and we live to hear ourselves talk. At Lola, our job is to listen and learn.

As for traveling in packs... six years at IBM and I still can't explain that phenomenon.
