Recently I met a beautifully dressed lady walking alone along the street ‘speaking to herself’, occasionally moving her hands in the air; few years back the only conclusion would have been that this is madness in its early stage; but in 2015, no! It’s not madness, she is cool, just having a hearty phone conversion using wireless earphone.
This is how much our world has changed courtesy of technology. Advances in technologies like the internet, social media, and mobile have changed our way of life and the fundamentals of doing business, business ideas that looked crazy yesterday are noble today; projects that appeared impossible yesterday are very feasible today.
The rate on of digital innovations is growing and there are bound to be more disruptive innovations tomorrow
This digital trend is like a mighty wave in the sea of business, you may not like it, but you cannot stop it. You can ignore it but at your own detriment.
As the business landscape becomes more and more digital, you will either be a victor or victim of the Digital wave.
Digitization is not just about using digital devices, it involves conceptual reorientation. It's not only about changing your tools, you also need to change your thinking.
I was in someone's office, I observed that when he receives email on his Ipad
air, he prints it out via a wireless printer, then he picks his green parker
pen, makes some notes (responses) on the print-out and hands over to his
secretary to type the reply. That is #digital tool
with analogue thinking. Such does not bring the advantages of technology
To gain from #technology you
must think strategically then apply technology to your thought, upgrade your
tools as well as your thinking.
