Agility and Fragility – Redesigning business for success

Agility and fragility have become the norm in a more complex world as our economic, technological and talent ecosystems become increasingly connected and interdependent. Organisations must anticipate the next technology, social and commercial disruptions which are forcing business leaders to challenge their thinking on every level, including the way they run their business operations, drive innovation, structure their workplaces, empower their employees, and build their IT infrastructures. The rapid succession of change means that firms will have to re-design their thinking so their strategy and business models are agile enough to fluidly adapt to a shifting environment.

We’re experiencing a revolution of our connected world and the current technology trends of cloud, big data, mobility, social collaboration and cyber-security are powerful disruptive forces affecting us all. It’s these converging factors that call for greater agility and require citizens, governments and business to cope with the fragility of the status quo – the fact that nothing is constant anymore yet businesses are not currently engineered to manage it.

We help our clients navigate this emerging connected world, transform into more agile business networks and manage the challenges and opportunities they encounter by connecting business, technology and people to:

 

  • Enable the digital enterprise
  • Drive business excellence
  • Create the future workplace

Properly Designing Exceptions in Business Processes: it depends on the Circumstances - by Robert-Jan Streng

It is a dilemma that every business process designer faces. Imagine that your beautiful, elegant, innovative, easy-to-understand, Lean-based process design – the result of several brown paper workshops with all relevant stakeholders present – covers more than 95% of all cases and situations. Many process architects would be inclined to say: let’s put aside the remaining 5%, as it will complicate the model. Let’s treat these as manual exceptions.

Are you future proofing your career? by Marianne Hewlett

40% of all jobs are likely to be automated by 2030 . The question is what new types of work will you be doing by then?  How will you be freed up from repetitive tasks as automation opens up new possibilities?  These are important questions to ask yourselves and while 2030 is in the distant future, automation is already happening. It will require businesses to understand how their organizations will be transformed and how processes and culture will have to be changed as a result. It also requires a mindset shift in all of us. Here Marianne explains us why.

The Ethics of Driverless Cars- by Matthew Bingley

With the technology close to being perfected, manufacturers are no longer being asked whether we can build automated cars, but whether we should. In fact, there is reason to believe that, from an ethical standpoint, self-driving cars are a no-brainer. A recent report from McKinsey & Company noted that autonomous vehicles could reduce road accidents by up to 90%. Of course, there is still the remaining 10% of deaths – and with the involvement of driverless cars, these would be fraught with ethical dilemma. Here Matthews develops two such widely discussed scenarios.

Are cities about to get even more mobile? - by Santi Ristol

City life stands on the precipice of change: explosion of mobile, whereby the average person is now using their mobile device up to 150 times per day; and the increasing urbanisation of the population – by 2030, 60% of the world’s population will be living in cities. These two trends are colliding, with the smartphone becoming the “remote control” that is connecting citizens to their city.

Now that we’ve digested the automotive headlines and announcements from CES2016 in Las Vegas, we can begin to try to assess the potential impact of these innovations on the business of automotive manufacturing.
