This week, discussions on Moore’s Law and blue skies thinking.
Moore’s Law is the simple but powerful rule that states computer chips get twice as fast, every two years, for the same price. It might sound a bit arcane, but the exponential growth in computing power has changed our lives. And if you run a chip company or an IT firm, this rule of thumb is something you have to factor into your every business move.

We’ll also talk about blue sky thinking. It’s not the first thing on everyone’s mind when you have a business to run – whether or not you’re trying to keep up with something like Moore’s Law. However, big ideas for the long term are crucial for success in the corporate world. We’ll find out how our guests find tomorrow’s great products and strategies inside their own companies.

Our guests this week:

Richard Bowker
Chief Executive
National Express

Warren East
Chief Executive
ARM

Hardeep Garewal
Head of European operations
ITC Infotech
