Growing up in Los Angeles and living in Silicon Valley for 20-plus years has plugged me into a unique network of creativity and innovation. Although many would say that I technically live in a bubble, I have practiced the art of participation and observation to earn a balanced perspective when it comes to ideation and design. While I am surrounded by some of the most amazing minds, I am also inspired by those shaping innovation hubs. If it’s one thing I’ve learned,…
These days, it seems that I travel to events overseas more than in the United States. While many companies around the world believe they are behind U.S. companies, I can say that from first hand experience, any company pursuing the future of customer experience, innovation, and brand is ahead of the game…regardless of where it’s based. When I receive an invitation to present, it exemplifies, at least to me, that those attending the event are keen on learning about how to…
We are in a new era of customer experience. Do you know how customers interact with your brand? Do you know how they feel about your services? What they tell their friends?

It’s exactly at a place like VidCon that you realize even though “internet famous” might still smack of a lower worth than “Hollywood famous,” the line is blurring.
“[Younger millennials and Generation Z] are not watching television, they’re not reading magazines the way that younger generations did before them,” Solis said. “Their idols are these online creators because their mobile phone is their television screen.”
La palabra “fracaso” se considera en gran medida una deshonra en los Estados Unidos y en todo el mundo. Dentro de ciertos sectores, la palabra puede tener diferentes connotacionEles.

“Digital transformation is more than just digital; it’s about remodeling businesses to be agile, innovative, and customer-centric at their core.” This is the heart of the message from Altimeter’s report by Brian Solis…
Solis says that many leaders incorrectly assume that pursuing digital transformation is the job of the IT department. “If you were to follow the findings of many other reports, you would believe that the secret to digital transformation was all about technology and how the modernization of work was the key to success. The truth is that it’s a far more human story. There are changes happening to and because of people in your markets,” he says.
“Digital transformation is a movement progressing without a universal map to guide businesses through proven and productive passages. This leaves organizations pursuing change from a known, safe approach that correlates with “business as usual” practices. Operating within the confines of traditional paradigms without purpose or vision eventually challenges the direction, capacity, and agility for thriving in a digital economy.”
“If you think of the wine and beer industries, many labels look the same — same shape, same back label, even similar websites,” Solis said. Many companies put craftsmanship above marketing, but the fact is that quality isn’t enough. “The word ‘brand’ means there’s something behind it that becomes relatable and shareable, and that takes some work,” he explained. “A great product is not going to be enjoyed if people don’t buy it and talk about it.”
Tout va passer par l’émotion que l’on aura susciter », relève ce gourou de la Silicon Valley. Les gens ne se rappellent pas de ce que vous avez fait ou dit mais ils n’oublient pas l’impression que vous leur avez laissé.

C’est ce qu’il démontre dans son dernier ouvrage « The Experience : when Business meets Design », un plaidoyer pour un design centré sur l’humain.
