Though we are living in information age and technology has taken over our lives, it is surprising to know that there are still a large number of businesses which are untouched by technology and still functioning in its traditional ways reducing the human potentials comparatively. The purpose of innovations is to increase human capacity by leveraging tools & technology and optimizing business processes to become more efficient and cost effective, but where is the GAP? Why that is not happening?
After consulting hundreds of traditional business leaders and understanding the business process, we discovered that the business leaders are least aware of the power of technology and what it can do for them. Secondly, they never came across a person/agency who can explain the value of marriage between tools/technology with the people and process that has possibility to produce 9 babies in 9 months.
The speeds at which business dynamics are changing, predictability is very difficult. Once-dominant business like Kodak, Enron or General Motors ended up declaring bankruptcy. Why? May be they could not visualize and change themselves with the rapidly shifting market and did not equip themselves with the new age technology.
If you are living in this information age, you as a business leader need to understand two things – the automation that complements humans and your willingness to increase awareness of the world around you will accelerate the human achievements and business growth.
The only thing that can shield you as a business is your awareness of the changing world around you. This awareness will allow you to equip yourself with the needed tools and technologies and empower you to survive and grow with the challenges that shifting market conditions inevitably keeps on throwing.
