Bill's high-school English classes came flooding back as he sat at his desk, pondering where he had gone wrong. 'It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It was the age of wisdom. It was the age of foolishness.' Charles Dickens had written those words in A Tale of Two Cities over 160 years earlier but they felt as relevant now as they ever had. As the CEO of a business that was poised to expand, Bill worried that he gotten off on the wrong foot, that he had chosen foolishness over wisdom.
His strategy to scale up fast had gotten mired down in technology that didn't work well enough, that required a large team of IT professionals just to keep it running, and that was getting more and more expensive all the time. In desperation, he began researching other options, and finally stumbled upon Amazon WorkSpaces. But was it too late to pivot?
