By Dick Stark
In memory of Steve Jobs who died on Wednesday, please read or view his commencement address that he gave at Stanford University on June 12, 2005 as he was recovering from cancer. It is the most popular commencement address ever on YouTube. Some of you know that I was so enamored by Steve’s talk, that his “Stay hungry, stay foolish” tag line became RightStar’s motto for 2006.
I won’t attempt to try to paraphrase, summarize, or translate what “Stay hungry, stay foolish,” means to me or RightStar. Instead, please take the time and watch for yourself.
I am the President and founder of RightStar, Inc, an XTIVIA company. RightStar is a leading ITSM and DevOps consultancy and BMC Software Elite Solution Provider and Atlassian Gold Partner. My passion is customer success—whether it’s reducing the cost of service management, improving overall efficiency, or increasing end-user or employee satisfaction.
Since founding RightStar in 2003, RightStar has made the INC 5000 list four times. In 2011, RightStar was awarded the prestigious National Capital Business Ethics Award (NCBEA) by the Society of Financial Service Professionals based upon RightStar’s foundation of honesty, ethics, and integrity. And in 2014, RightStar was selected by Forrester Research as one of 13 North American companies profiled in its ITSM Consultancy Wave Report. In 2019, BMC selected RightStar as its DSM North American Partner of the Year for its sales and partnership excellence. Finally, in November 2020, RightStar was acquired by XTIVIA, an innovative IT Solutions Provider.
Dick is a graduate of Stanford University and a Project Management Professional (PMP).
