Next, ask your team. Chances are, there will be at least one person who is passionate about tech. Even better, they could be waiting for the opportunity to tell you how a new tool or service can give the team a leg up.

Once you’re informed, consider an investment. Notice I didn’t say go whole hog and suggest making significant or immediate changes Perform your due diligence. There’s often going to be be the cost of entry, a learning curve, boundaries brought on by proprietary software, and so on. If it’s the right fit though, go for it!
