In Pursuit of Relevance

In Pursuit of Relevance

Welcome to irrelevance population: most of management by @gapingvoid and @briansolis What does it mean to be relevant today? We live and work in an era of digital Darwinism, where technology and society are evolving away from yesterday’s norms, mindsets, values, and behaviors. Most companies want to be customer and employee centric. Most executives believe that their work matters to employees and customers. But the reality is that customers and employees are changing as times, trends and tastes evolve. They’re…

To innovate or advance digital transformation, look outside your industry

To innovate or advance digital transformation, look outside your industry

My good friend and journalist Dan Tynan wrote two exceptional pieces on digital transformation in Adweek, “5 Steps for Digitally Transforming Your Marketing to Be More Responsive to Customer Needs” and “Why Old-School Brands Like Gap Need to Learn New Tricks to Survive in the Digital Age.” If you’re not in marketing, please don’t stop reading yet! This is bigger than marketing. This is about organizational innovation and transformation. Dan and I spent time together talking through what digital transformation…

Digital Transformation is not a Cost-Center, It’s an Investment in Market Leadership

Digital Transformation is not a Cost-Center, It’s an Investment in Market Leadership

In many progressive cases, digital transformation prioritizes customer experience initiatives. Because it focuses (or should) on customer behavior, preferences and outcomes, digital transformation can, in its own way, making businesses more human. As such, digital transformation is not or should not be about digital. It’s greatest potential is achieved when technology enables human-centered experiences and the change that comes about inside and outside the organization as a result. Successful digital transformation is ongoing and continually seeks out how to use…

If we don’t disrupt ourselves, it will be a gift given to us by someone else

If we don’t disrupt ourselves, it will be a gift given to us by someone else

We all talk of change. But it’s a much different story when the need to change becomes our reflection in the mirror. It’s not easy. But if we are to affect any change around us, we must begin with ourselves. Disruption is a give given by you or to you. It’s a choice. Let’s go. We’re in this together.

Great Customer Experiences an Upgrade to Executive and Management Mindsets

Great Customer Experiences an Upgrade to Executive and Management Mindsets

It’s a new year and not necessarily another step forward. This isn’t the first time I’ve used this profound picture by Banksy as inspired by Meek. It always inspires me to spread my wings as a change agent. In my research, I find time and time again that digital transformation and corporate innovation is spurred by customer experience. The reality is that customers, as a result of their relationship with technology and the resulting digital transformation of their personal and professional…

Digital transformation has become an absolute must-have to secure future growth, improve customer experience and loyalty as well as operational efficiency. Along with it, digital transformation also represents an opportunity to rewrite the rules of business? I got to spend some time with…

Innovation is a gift worth getting: Competing for the future starts with challenging business as usual

Innovation is a gift worth getting: Competing for the future starts with challenging business as usual

Every day when you get to the office, there is a surmountable volume of work that greets you. The list is usually pretty long, with calls to return, to do items stacked up, emails overflowing, meetings, marketing and sales planning to fill the pipeline. It’s all in a day’s work. But what if one day you woke up and noticed that the volume of work was notably less? I’m sure you’d be relieved for a bit. But then each day,…

Would you make a decision to join or leave a company based on how you work?

Would you make a decision to join or leave a company based on how you work?

Did you know that employees and employee prospects judge the immediate and long-term potential of a company by their reliance on desktop phones? To some it makes total sense. Why would any company have tethered devices to talk to someone else? Don’t we have mobile devices and apps for that? Besides, I’m always on the go. On the other hand, some might wonder as to why we would be having this conversation at all. Of course there are desktop phones!…

Innovation Begins with a Shift in Perspective; It’s Personal

Innovation Begins with a Shift in Perspective; It’s Personal

The team at Ode Management asked me to introductory video for their audience of event planners, speaker bureaus and agents. The topic was innovation and my mission was to keep it casual and brief, with a target length of two minutes. I guess I was too excited. On my first take, I overshot that goal by 10 minutes and needed to re-record it. However, I couldn’t bring myself to delete this though! Instead, I wanted to share it with you here. This video was meant…
