From end to end: why the union of Design Thinking and Agile has been so successful


Where DT can’t reach, Agile can compensate and vice versa. Agile: Make Tangible and build. Since you have a well-defined idea (through Design Thinking), Agile will clear a path towards your idea by removing obstacles that stand in your way. Agile: you do not make Agile; you become Agile. Agility is a mindset. Agile is a different way of thinking and rethinking the very logic of your work routine. Agile Methods: divide and conquer!

Business Analytics: how to implement in your company


Welcome to the “Data Age” First and foremost, a contextualization: we do not live what experts are calling the “Data Age” What they want to synthesize is the fact that the world has changed before our eyes, transforming into a universe of digital data of the most varied formats (text, video, audio, image, etc.).

Scale gives way to speed

Jeffrey Phillips

Scale is giving way to agility, speed and customer experience. Speed, agility and insight matter more. His point is that big businesses routinely trip over themselves to understand the technologies that are emerging without thinking through the impact on the existing business models or the new business models that may emerge. Increasingly it's clear that corporate strategy must embrace an increasingly unscaled world where size matters less and speed and agility matters more.

Why digital transformation will drive business model innovation

Jeffrey Phillips

Blockchain and IoT provide greater oversight into where components are made and sourced, and big data helps identify cost issues, leading to more pressure on the supply chain. Older members of the supply chain providing simpler components feel increasing pressure to automate and cut costs, while newer members bring far more technology savvy and agility.

Jumping to a fresh cycle of innovation design

Paul Hobcraft

instead of delivering on discrete elements; this requires managing the whole ecosystem of the innovation design differently through technology where platforms dominate and transformation becomes an ongoing process to evolve the business model, so as to seek out constantly changing market opportunities, in agile, adaptive and fluid ways, for successful innovation outcomes, that meet those real customer needs. We need to design our systems to be highly agile.

Paul Hobcraft

It is highly reliant on manual systems with people often disconnected from the real innovation engagement making decisions on inadequate data or insights. This merging of cloud, big data, social, and the internet of things is becoming the new system of discovery according to some. Massive amounts of data can complicate decision-making, determining the right decisions and next steps.

Starting with them tends to lead to the ‘same old, same old’ set of initiatives – e.g., be more customer centric, be more agile, get greater insight through big data. Take a ‘hot’ business word of today: transformation. For years, I stopped using the word ‘transformation.’ It was pervasive; it was flung about in workshops and articles, books and business meetings, from Cape Town to Cairo, Seoul to Singapore, in different industries, in different sizes of firms.
