Motorsport engineering firms are well known for their technical expertise and project management skills, particularly in the latter case around their speed of working. Their technical expertise comes from dealing at the cutting edge of science and technology in areas as diverse as light-weighting, electronics and thermal management for example. Motorsport firms also exemplify leading edge project management capabilities given the rapid turnaround of the motorsport timetable. In this case the latest technical developments are needed not next year or next month, but usually the next week or even the next day,
Facts from history (altro…)
Change or Die : the research, the article and the relevant book are over 10 years old, yet the topic is ever relevant: #change is no longer an option, is no-other-way one-way path.
We need to realise that we can be in control of it, rather than being victim of it, by leveraging on natural aspects as #brainplasticity and tools as #framing and #reframing #thinking and #communication
#Technology is more then ever driving #organizations from an operational and strategic perspective, yet the real question to its developement relates to how it can finally #empower an higher level of #humanpotential expression in organizations.
There is no longer time to wait and actually technology is accelerating all of this too.
An anteresting article for the MIT Sloan Review:
People Skills (creativity, social networking, collaboration) are set to continue increasing their relevance within work contexts in with Artificial Intelligence is rapidly going to take over many of the tasks currently part of management today.
Happy and successful team of colleagues sitting together to work out business plans
An very interesting and self-explanatory video.
#Technology is shaking the context of #work at a faster and faster pace; it seems that this is shutting down many work opportunities yet the key variable is #change and the way we adapt to it.
An in depth qualitative and quantitative analysis is quite intriguing in lighting-up this way…
#bigdata #artificialintelligence #automation ; they all represent processes set to have a marked impact on business development, organizational as well as socio-economic level.
Various technological and mindset forces are integrating in synergy. Hopefully this will generate progress that is not only relevant to increase productivity and efficiency in manufacturing by delivering product and services; actual social progress for the betterment of the human condition needs to be part of this as well.
No doubt these days leading up to the next F1 Spain GP have put #Bottas in the spotlight for his recent maiden F1 win. The speed and coolheaded approach he is shown on track is also linked to #effective #teamwork with his new #Mercedes technical group.
He has purposefully chosen not you have with him personnel from his previous #Williams team in order to fully and rapidly immerge himself within the culture and work approach of Mercedes. Seeking #nocomfortzone purposefully appears to pay off right from the get-go of the 2017 F1 season.
At the following link a very interesting article from Professor Mark Jenkins. I believe that the current dynamics in F1 (relevant to technological and overall management change) make the contents of it even more sound and relevant. It will be interesting to see the impact of a the integration of the overall management american and european style in LibertyMedia over the project.
Ross Brawn is playing a key role in this from an experience and cross-cultural view perspective.
Article by Professor Mark Jenkins
The old saying on #entrepreneurship states that we have to focus specializing on one activity in order to excel and build a successful business on it.
Times have changed and, as Elon Musk entrepreneurial activities show, it is necessary to use acquired dynamic knowledge and networks in order to become ‘specialized-generalists’ driven by #visionary principles and #synergistic practices across different fields of action.
An article on the subject …
They used to be called business ecosystems: clusters of cooperation and healthy competition within a certain geographical area. Today we talk about #ideasenvironments because everything has become much more subject to dynamic changes and disruptions.
Such environments are essential to any enterprise to survive and thrive; for this reason every business should actively participate in developing such physical and conceptual areas.
