Leaders, do you know what your GPS of success are?

By Dr. Jefferson Yu-Jen Chen and Anne Duggan

From preventing natural disasters to improving supply chain efficiency and tracking automated teller machines, many Global Positioning System (GPS) oriented applications have been adding enormous value in our world. You are currently living a safer and more convenient life due to GPS. Without GPS, it will be challenging for you to make use of many innovative services in this sharing economy and reach the destinations that you are unfamiliar with, just to name a few.

What is a GPS?

What is a GPS? In short, GPS is a satellite-based radionavigation system operated by the United States Space Force. It is a network of satellites that can be used to triangulate the exact location of something or someone on this planet. GPS allows you to track where something is (or you are) located, and more importantly, help you to project how to move something (or you) to the location that you desire. For average applications, one will need four GPS satellites to calculate a precise location on the Earth. But when you are using a high-performance drone, you will probably need to track your status quo against seven to twelve satellites or more.

Therefore, ask yourself this simple question…… have you wondered…… what are the satellites of your GPS of success?
