Systems in Action:  Collaboration and the Internet of Everything ~ Cisco | Change Management Resources | Scoop.it

Change is constant. And technology has always been about change and convergence. "This is a wide ecosystem where everyone can participate and benefit."


Massive, global-scale change occurring now is happening at rates faster than anyone ever predicted.

How Big is “Everything”?

The Internet of Everything will create $14.4 trillion in value at stake through the combination of increased revenues and lower costs in just the next ten years – creating an opportunity to increase global corporate profits by an estimated 21% over the next decade.


The five main factors fueling this value are:


  • Asset utilization: $2.5 trillion in reduced costs
  • Employee productivity: $2.5 trillion in greater labor efficiencies
  • Supply chain and logistics: $2.7 trillion through eliminating waste
  • Customer intimacy: $3.7 trillion through addition of more customers
  • Innovation: $3.0 trillion through reducing time to market
    

Collaboration ties in throughout these factors. This is a wide ecosystem where everyone can participate and benefit: Small businesses, enterprises, service providers, system integrators, device makers are all critical to building out the connections and scaling experiences across every industry.

 

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

This is the promising side of big data and collaboration.  What do you see in your categories of cost & benefit and abundance in this thinking?  ~  Deb

Why Data Will Never Replace Thinking, DPPE, What's the Question? What's the Goal?

Why Data Will Never Replace Thinking, DPPE, What's the Question?  What's the Goal? | Change Management Resources | Scoop.it
The answers we get out of data will always depend on the questions we ask.


Useful.  It also reminded me of one of the tools we use in Whole Scale change thinking:  Data, Purpose, Plan, Evaluate, or DPPE.  Thanks to twitter follower  @resilientchange for this link this week.

Excerpts:


Data-driven predictions can succeed — and they can fail. It is when we deny our role in the process that the odds of failure rise. Before we demand more of our data, we need to demand more of ourselves.


One key role we play in the process is choosing which data to look at. That this choice is often made for us by what happens to be easiest to measure doesn't make it any less consequential, as Samuel Arbesman writes, 


  • "Throughout history, in one field after another, science has made huge progress in precisely the areas where we can measure things — and lagged where we can't."


In his book,  political forecaster Nate Silver writes about a crucial element, how we go about revising our views as new data comes in.


Silver is a big believer in the Bayesian approach to probability, in which we all have our own subjective ideas about how things are going to pan out, but follow the same straightforward rules in revising those assessments as we get new information.


It's a process that uses data to refine our thinking. But it doesn't work without some thinking first.

How to See Progress in Your Change Implementation and Adapt | Change Management Resources | Scoop.it
Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

If you or a colleague are:

  • are in an organization with 100+ staff and,
  • are launching or experiencing a change implementation, and
  • are interested in data-driven adjustments to your change strategy and tactics


Contact Ron Koller, the author of this change post, to learn about his free and/or low cost change surveys (with published results) that could greatly assist your knowledge of what's working and what isn't in your change implementation, so that you make be better able to make agile adjustments.  


Click here for more information on your potential Change Study's details.   

Also, a free report that summarizes some of Ron's initial research is here on his companion Change Management site.


 You can also contact me for general questions.
