tHE PROCESS FOR SUCCEEDING IN THE ERA OF DISRUPTION

Ian learnt this lesson early on. As an Engineer and a PMP Certified project Manager, the importance of the process is key to succeeding in any context. Businesses today more than ever are failing not because of external factors but because internal processes do not hold the weight of the needs of the business. This is why over 90% startups fail in the first 5 years. Ian promotes the value creation process as an integral part of his work, helping organizations soft from a reactive firefighting mode to a proactive process based methodology. As Ian says, "Success spelt in any other way would be Process".

WHY IS VALUE CREATION KEY TO SUCCEEDING IN THE FUTURE

Today our world is fast heading towards a data driven world. Data is everywhere. It is being generated by our computers, laptops, cellphones, watches and even connected cars and toasters. The prevalence of data is never going away and in fact will penetrate deeper into our everyday living. 

  • 90% of the data around was was generated in the last two years
  • We utilise less than 2% of all the information we have generated
  • This and the next age will be an information driven world
