    This is this first week of Wimbledon and Rafael Nadal is on form. #2 in the world singles rankings and fresh from his win at the Roland Garros French Open on clay, this time his target is winning the famous London trophy, on grass. Yesterday I heard a BBC commentator marvel at the amount of […]

    Last week the very first regular commercial drone delivery service commenced. It’s likely you have heard of many such experiments around the world over the last few years, but this was the first service to start running every day, as a real business operation.  Ponder for a moment – where in the world did you […]

    During his address to the American nation on April 30th 1973, President Richard Nixon provided his now famous line “there can be no Whitewash at the White House”. The analogy of using white paint to cover up a mess was not new, but ever since – journalists and copywriters have been in love with it. In […]

    Something I’ve noticed in a few interactions this year, has been too much planning for digital business innovation. We meet with some technology and business executives who have been strategizing and planning how to set up a digital business innovation center or capability for months and months.. sometimes a year, or even two years. It’s smart to […]

    Economists across the world are both puzzled and concerned about an apparent dip in long term productivity growth. Their worries are giving rise to frequent business news editorials about the issue. It matters because the long term advancing wealth and prosperity of nations can only be based on improved productivity. If we can make and […]

    As we have said many times over the last few years: every industry will be digitally remastered. That means its products and services will become significantly digital. The digital proportion of what customers buy from you will rise, not just how those customers were attracted to you (digital marketing) or how they transact (e-commerce). This applies […]

    “What do you think is the single most important factor for digital business success?”. I was asked that question recently. It was half way up a mountain, at an executive retreat in a beautiful meeting room with large leather armchairs, windows looking out at snowy peaks and a roaring log fire. Initially my mind started to […]

    Recently I read a business news article about a techquisition. A large traditional model company bought a smaller online-only company that had invaded its sector. They paid a high price. The writer suggested this could represent a ‘leapfrog’ digital strategy for the acquiring company. To my eye it was not that – not at all. It was a […]

    Reading the tech news today, I learned that it is the 10th anniversary of the launch of the first Apple iPhone. That decade really did fly past quickly didn’t it?  I remember the decade before that as well –  as we got better and better at mobile devices.. Palm Pilot, Nokia 7110, iPaq, Blackberry.  Nowadays […]

    Before we get into this important issue I have to declare a disinterest. I’m not a cloud analyst at Gartner. I don’t cover the vendors or their offerings. I can’t tell you which one is best under different circumstances. I have many colleagues who can help you with those decisions. What I do know is […]

    It was nineteen-eighty-something. “Information technology, is a societal, epochal technology” said my university lecturer, quoting a translated Japanese author (that made the insight seem even more wise and visionary). Like … wow man. Decades later I find it helpful to reconsider the 60 to 80 year journey that historians call the ‘information age’. It’s not ivory tower […]

    Here’s something that I sometimes hear CEOs and other business leaders say –  and seemingly without much forethought. “Of course, the technology is the easy bit..” It’s one of those trite phrases that gets picked up and repeated in everyday corporate life, as if they were statements of obvious truth and wisdom, upon which we all […]

    Recently I was asked this rather smart question by the CEO of a financial services company. He knows they must embark on a digital transformation journey. Given what we have learned from the experience of others, should he lead the effort with culture change or technology change? The reflexive answer that I expect you want to give […]
