Alex Castro is the CEO of M Corp, an IT services and consulting company that partners with businesses to help them achieve long-term modernization through improved data and technology. Alex is driven to bridge the gap between ideas and execution in the modern world, which explains why he took it upon himself to learn and master everything involving digital transformation and innovation. He is also the author of the book Measure, Execute, Win, where he talks about ReM Score and how this data-driven measurement allows companies to make better corporate decisions.
In this episode, Alex shares his thoughts on what it means to be a transformative company in a post-pandemic world. He describes why many companies have great ideas, but fail at execution. He discusses why the tech industry is not aligned with the needs of the modern age, especially after COVID-19. He explains why the future of growth is not about selling the tools, but selling what the tools get you. Alex also recounts his experience with the crash of 2008 and how it compares to the current market.
