The progress of the world needs to be
pulled together and pushed forward by innovators, change agents across the
globe, who can think globally, decide insightfully, and act determinately.
organizations and industries should reinvent themselves for harnessing
innovation, renew fresh energy, integrate old and new, and lead changes we all
would like to see.
Last week, I participated a global book exhibition event in
one of the culture-enriching cities of the world. Our society is now moving to the digital era
of hyper-connectivity, interdependence with fierce competition. The audience of
this fair is very diversified, and the agenda of the exhibition focuses on
digitalization, globalization and innovation.
Viability: information is growing
exponentially; the pace of change is increasing, the world becomes flattened
and fluid, the border of knowledge domains is blurred, knowledge also gets
stale sooner than what you thought about due to rapid change and exponential
growth of information. This is particularly important for the publishing
industry to digitizing and optimizing their processes to increase viability and
accelerate the speed. Regardless which industry you are in, the silo processes
should be broken down, and value-added solutions should delight different sorts
of stakeholders. It’s strategic imperative to design a viable industry for enjoying
a powerful tailwind.
viable digital organizations are solid enough to give some sort of forms and
meaning and open enough to its environment allowing the movement of
information, ideas. all key factors interact in a dynamic. Viability is one of
the very characteristics of the society to keep organizations thriving for the
long term. Forethoughtful organizations leverage design thinking to
reinvent an organization that can enforce collaboration and harness innovation
by maintaining viability, and making strategic effects for enjoying a powerful
tailwind to improve innovation performance.
significant impacts on every aspect of the business from people, processes, to
technology and capability both horizontally and vertically. The question of greater diversity
bringing greater creativity always depends on what we’re talking about. The
first most successful societies were diverse mixtures of peoples. The words come from the thoughts. The diversity of thought is on
demand, for boosting collective creativity and harness collective wisdom; for
lifting the spirit of our society. This is particularly true for the publishing
is the hotbed to spark creativity. Developing an effective globalization agenda
requires us to be willing to listen to diverse viewpoints, broaden the
perspective to fix misperceptions, break down old traditions, outdated
knowledge, and create fresh insight. able to wear different perception
glasses, experiment with different ways of doing the same things. Diversified
audience of this event have a cogitative difference and diversified worldview for
integrating significant building blocks of new and existing ideas and concepts.
It is an excellent engine for creativity. People were brainstorming, sharing fresh ideas and personal experience;
they challenge each other to have to translate/transform their PoVs into new expressions.
People with global
background are more tolerant of cultures and customs other than their own,
catalyze innovation and drive progressive changes. In order to reinvent
a traditional industry, it’s important to clarify the difference between local and
global principles, common beliefs and global wisdom, develop a set of global
rules & principles to synchronize, scale up and sustain change effects for
harmonizing collective progress on the global scale.
can happen anywhere across the global organization and ecosystem. Global
leaders and professionals envision an innovative global trends, continue to
improve interdisciplinary knowledge proficiency, develop cultural empathy, and
have a variety of professional experience dots to connect for spurring innovation.
Global audience in this show desire to learn, open their minds to learn from
global intellectuals or organization, to open up these ideas for collaboration,
streamline people and process management, bring invaluable inputs and help the
development of those ideas to enhance focus on commercially relevant compounds
and achieve business value.
the information is abundant and knowledge are only clicks away, organizations and
industries need fresh insight and foresight to move faster because knowledge
can be outdated so soon and processes have frictions. When looking at global
economy with creative people around the world, it’s important to develop an
effective innovation agenda that keep moving the needles forward, overcoming
frictions and cultural inertia, understand the cause-effect of many complex
problems facing global society, in order to co-solving them smoothly.
exhibitions open people’s mind, great cultural activities encourage innovation.
There is a pendulum swinging between people and process, engagement and
hierarchy; the emergence of potential opportunities and risks for exploring
digital is likely to follow a nonlinear pattern with accelerated speed. The
progress of the world needs to be pulled together and pushed forward by
innovators, change agents across the globe, who can think globally, decide
insightfully, and act determinately.
