Credete che la “digitalizzazione” sia solo una moda passeggera?

Vi ricordate che poco più di 10 anni fa non esistevano gli smartphone, i tablet e le Apps?

Usavamo telefonini Nokia, BlackBerry o Motorola: società’ ormai pressoché scomparse dal mercato. Cosi come e’ avvenuto alle videoteche Blockbuster con l’avvento dei film in digitale.

Il futuro sara’ sempre più “distruttivo” rispetto agli attuali stili di vita e di conseguenza cambieranno ancora di piu’ le professioni richieste dal mercato del lavoro, cioe’ cosa dovranno sapere fare i nostri figli.

Che piaccia o no, bisogna abituarsi all’idea, prepararsi a viverla e munirsi (soprattutto i ragazzi) delle competenze necessarie per saper gestire una societa’ in veloce cambiamento per esserne attori/promotori e non esserne travolti!

Manufacturing Reboots Talent Engine In A New Age Of Digital Disruption – via Techcrunch

Whether a company makes clothing, household cleaning products, cars, healthcare or nearly anything else, it needs people with the right skills. Like other businesses, today’s manufacturers are going digital; operating in an era of change and volatility that has made flexibility critical to their success.

skills

[…] Companies need to place a greater emphasis on defining what skills their organization needs. These requirements can include any combination of technical expertise, professional certifications, previous work experience and so-called “soft skills,” including communications and leadership skills.

However, it is important for companies to remain realistic throughout this process and consider that it may not be possible for one candidate to possess all of the skills they are seeking. In that case, it may be more important to identify reliable, hardworking, inquisitive people who demonstrate a work ethic, willingness to learn and the flexibility to adapt in a changing work environment.

Once companies have a firm sense of the skills they desire, there are two main ways to go about cultivating talent: Tap the power of an organization’s existing workforce and build those skills from within, or develop new talent externally with a trusted network of partners.

Of course, developing skills, whether internally or externally, requires a company to make a significant investment. The skills gap took years to emerge and it will not be fixed overnight.

Addressing the situation is important. Disrupters play the stronger offensive game in today’s volatile business environment. Talent can play an important role in helping companies execute that offensive strategy. But only with the right skills for a new business reality on the offensive team can a company swiftly respond to changes as they arise in today’s global business world.

Contest is King: come il mobile accelera i processi di IoE

Contest, not content, is king.” Un rovesciamento di prospettiva del celebre motto che potrebbe sembrare forzato ma che Joseph Bradley,  Evangelist di Cisco, sceglie per rappresentare la spinta che la mobilità sta dando all’ Internet of Everything.

Nel prossimo futuro, tuttavia, la combinazione di Wi-Fi e di altre reti di rilevamento combinati con sensori indossabili incorporati in indumenti protettivi darà soccorritori le informazioni di cui hanno bisogno per rispondere alle emergenze in modo appropriato.

In altre parole la mobility è la tecnologia che sta guidando il cambiamento esponenziale dell’IoE.
