Dr. T's Identity Management Method

I've never seen it written down before, but this article from Joel on Software, "The Identity Management Method" really captures what it means to work at NI. 

Joel says:

To be an Identity Method manager, you have to summon all the social skills you have to make your employees identify with the goals of the organization, so that they are highly motivated, then you need to give them the information they need to steer in the right direction.

Those of you who came to NIWeek probably heard Dr. T's keynote. Every year, he lays out for our customers where he thinks NI is going.  Well, he doesn't just do that at the keynote. He does that pretty much every day.  No matter who he's talking to and no matter what the audience, he explains his vision. Sometimes, its the very technical roadmap of the future and sometimes it's the more personal view of the various stakeholders in NI (the employees, our suppliers, our shareholders, our customers). "Sharing the vision" is an important part of our culture. It's nice to see a third party validation of it.

I have heard Dr. T say S/w is the instrument. I think, he would love this heading from the EE times, Is software the new hardware?
