System of Engagement

Information Playground

One of the key points that he made was that traditional IT systems function as a system of record.  Therefore the amount of data managed in a system or record grows fairly predictably, and business intelligence algorithms explore this data with relative ease. A system of engagement interacts with external endpoints that generate orders of magnitude more data.

How the current patent system actually hurts innovation (and how patent trolls are being fought)

Idea to Value

And that is because the current system for getting patents is in many ways no longer in line with how the world’s businesses work. Does this system still work? Many of the world’s most forward-thinking companies still heavily support the patent system. The problem is that the system allows companies to get patents to which they are not actually entitled.

Open Innovation: An Event or System?

Innocentive

Instead it can represent a system; a repeatable framework that has intrinsic importance to the innovation methodology of an organisation.

Open innovation has its history in point solutions – one specific issue was placed to a crowd and one specific solution was sought.

Transcending Our Financial Accounting Systems

Mike Shipulski

And all suffer the same fundamental flaw – they are based on an artificial system of financial accounting. Yet we let our accounting systems lead us around by the nose as if people don’t matter, like the planet doesn’t matter, like what we stand for doesn’t matter. The single-most troubling artifact of our accounting systems is its unnatural bias toward immediacy.

How Traditional Planning Systems Failed Microsoft, and Its Board

In later years these programs were expanded via ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems (such as SAP and Oracle) to include other information from sales, logistics, manufacturing and procurement. This is so “white space” oriented that it is completely outside the system, and impossible to build into any future model for revenue, cost or – therefore – investing.

Operating in unpredictable environments relies on an agile organization , following an adaptive, evolutionary and more bottom-up approach, resembling complex adaptive systems, e.g. in biology.

With regard to organizational design, pairing speed with stability through underlying dual operating systems seem to be an appropriate choice to increase adaptive capacity in established organizations – i.e. the capability to deal with increasing uncertainty and pace of environmental change.
