Excelling in a Software Driven World

Speed, Data, and Ecosystems – Excelling in a Software-Driven World by Jan Bosch from Jan Bosch on Vimeo.

“This book provides a a simple set of priorities and a clear roadmap to successfully transition your organization toward the “digitalization era”. I discuss the three focus areas that firms need to address: speed, data and ecosystems.

Speed is concerned with shortening the feedback loops between the company and its systems deployed in the field as well the users of these systems.

As virtually any software-intensive system these days is connected to the interned, we have unprecedented possibilities to collect data. This allows organizations to shift from opinion-based decision making to data-driven decision making and to generate novel insights.

Finally, ecosystems allow companies to focus their internal activities on the most differentiating aspects and to rely on partners in the ecosystem for everything else.”

Digital Transformation

A Holistic Perspective for Business Leaders

Digital Transformation

Digital technologies (software, data and artificial intelligence) represent the key disruptive force in industry in the 21st century. In response to this force, companies need to fundamentally transform and this affects the entire organization and the business ecosystem surrounding it. The transformation concerns – among other things – moving from a transactional, one dimensional business model to a continuous, multi-dimensional business model, from a focus on “atoms” to a focus on “bits” and from hierarchical organizational structures to empowered cross-disciplinary teams. Whereas many authors discuss a focused, single dimension of the digital transformation, the challenge is, in fact, holistic and multi-dimensional in nature as every function in the organization is affected and the company culture needs to transform. This book addresses the lack of a holistic perspective on digitalization by discussing it from ten different perspectives, including business strategy, leadership, innovation, personal development, R&D strategy, systems engineering, speed, data and AI, ecosystems and, finally, organization and change management. Through short sections, it provides a series of perspectives that, when combined, provide a holistic and consistent framework and context for your digital transformation.
