Previous topics attempted to shed different perspectives on current issues. These musings were intended to provoke ways of looking at things. Different paradigms to view the emerging socio-economic environment in diverse ways. The world we live in today is different from the past. The changes via the digital culture came at an unrepresented pace. These changes do not eliminate previous wisdom. We forget this when we are in the mist of the storm of change. Previous subjects attempted to offer perspectives and understanding to challenge your paradigms. The intention was not to agree, but to provoke thinking. Philosophical ideas need praxis to understand and manage this new world order. Therefore, considerations will delve into specific subjects as a way of offering solutions. Look beyond the examples to advancing innovative ideas about complex issues. Frequently the means overshadow the conceptional method, which is the key to human centric progress. the following is an example of how considerations will explore the challenges of the digital culture.
Development and progress is an evolutionary process. Sustainable and concrete results come from continuous application of improvements and creating value. In this digital culture, expectations are instantaneous results. This is not practical and may compromise the objective. “Truth is confirmed by inspection and delay; falsehood by haste and uncertainty.” [Tacitus]
An example of this is how quarterly business performance is the litmus test. Management is compensated on their quarterly performance. This mentality sacrifices long term growth towards quarterly result. Good luck with that! You must invest in the future, otherwise, there will be no tomorrow. Sacrificing everything to a quarter, will eventually catchup with unfortunate results. Gary Hamel in “Leading the Revolution” clearly reminds us that “New wealth is achieved only when new markets, new customers, or new revenue streams are created” This takes time and investments!
