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.
#Africa is just about to show all of his mighty and potential linked to a workforce with standards of skills and know-how rapidly rising. Yet the drive to these developments is still foreign: #Chinese .
Quite an interesting overall case study from an economic and societal point of view, interesting article… “The world next great manufacturing center”.

Thought provoking view: after realizing that we need to focus on becoming #professionals (spilling and branding ourselves), the next step is the one to go totally of preset job dynamics into the ones that are focusing in #criticalthinking and relevant #problemsolving ; to note that we are bound to use our brain more than ever! Let’s leave #ArtificialIntelligence work on all the other stuff …
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.

The focus on #innovation must be actual business developed otherwise we cannot talk about actual innovation. In many cases what we consider technological innovation is not innovation at all because it does not consider properly into the equation the #keyelement : #customer needs and wants (current and shortly upcoming) . #fasttrackbook
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.
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.
Interesting perspectives on the topic at this link.
