Technology – required but not sufficient for digital transformation

Digital transformation isn’t about getting better or more efficient at what you already know how to do, it’s about becoming better and more effective at identifying and executing outcomes you didn’t even know were possible.

Thinking in bits (redux)

Digital transformation is not, as some people think, something you do. It is, rather, something that is happening, something that is happening to you. Whether you want it to or not. Thinking in bits is your key to not just surviving the transformation, but to leading the way.

Imagine no employers, no employees too

I’ve long believed that the prevalence of knowledge work in organizations today will (eventually) fundamentally shift the employee – employer relationship. In many ways, knowledge workers will come to be “self-employed” in the sense that they are working to improve themselves and to make an impact on the world at large and not just within the company they happen to be “working for” at the time.

Returning to the Original Social Network

Something has been lost. Before algorithmic timelines, message length restrictions and mass surveillance there was a more robust world. It’s a distributed world that still lives behind the centralized allure of social networks. It’s a world where every person owns a small part of the internet, where they control their medium and communicate freely. Source: […]

Design Better Forms — – User Experience Design

Whether it is a signup flow, a multi-view stepper, or a monotonous data entry interface, forms are one of the most important components of digital product design. This article focuses on the common dos and don’ts of form design. Keep in mind that these are general guideline and there are exceptions to every rule. Source: […]

Thinking in bits (not atoms)

I first came across the idea of thinking in bits in Nicholas Negroponte’s 1995 book Being Digital, in which he talks about the limitations, the cost, of moving information around as atoms and how information would soon be converted from atoms to bits. The immediately obvious implication is that it now becomes essentially free to move and share information as bits.
