Apple “iWatch”

September 10th, 2014|Categories: New Technology|Comments Off on Apple “iWatch”


It’s hard to know with what to be more impressed — the watch, the technology, the design, the demo video, even the product videography that went into the video is amazing.  Apple still has it after Jobs — albeit, clearly, this product has been in development for years.  What I find myself wondering, is how many things will this disrupt?  I cringe for watchmakers (which have taken a beating from smartphones already) and fitness specialty watches.   Will this cannibalize, a bit, even smart phone usage?  With payment, what will I do with my Coin, […]

Social Fills Gap In Business Process Spectrum

October 24th, 2012|Categories: Collaboration, Email, Social|Comments Off on Social Fills Gap In Business Process Spectrum

Process Long Tail

Within a business, the collective processes can be viewed as a spectrum.  The more repetitive, team-oriented and generic, the more likely there will be a packaged line of business (LOB) application, like CRM, ERP, etc.  More proprietary processes, those linked to the business’s competitive advantage, will likely need BPM solutions or custom applications.  However, if a proprietary process is not highly repeatable, or does not involve many people, individuals tend to choose the tools used – email, spreadsheets, chat, etc.

McKinsey’s MECE

April 15th, 2012|Categories: Best Practices, Problem Solving|Comments Off on McKinsey’s MECE

Forgive me if I’m stating something obvious.  I’m just surprised how often I see people (in all kinds of situations) make recommendations without providing any rationale behind their recommendations.  IMHO, this makes recommendations, and all the hard work and thought that went into them, virtually meaningless.  Always frame the problem first and start with the primary objective.

Marquee consulting firm McKinsey has an approach to problem framing called “MECE“.  This refers to “Mutually Exclusive and Collectively Exhaustive.”  The value is more in the philosophy than a specific approach.  Implementation can be done in many ways (outlines, graphics, […]

Collaboration Knowledge and Big Data

March 23rd, 2012|Categories: Collaboration, Knowledge Management|Comments Off on Collaboration Knowledge and Big Data

Gutenberg’s printing press initiated mass knowledge capture via books.  The Internet is enabling another monumental knowledge boon, but this is not limited to just web pages.  In fact, rapidly increasing pace, more multi-tasking, greater agility, and even shortening attention spans are moving us away from the era of large, heavy books or documents to an increasing amount of micro-content.  Major decisions and valuable knowledge can be found in micro-content including email, microblogging, and SMS mobile texting.  The question is: how much of it is useful knowledge and how much creates noise that just makes finding the useful stuff more challenging?

Convergence of Messaging Systems

February 20th, 2012|Categories: Collaboration, Email, Social|Comments Off on Convergence of Messaging Systems

Email Legacy

It is becoming increasingly more difficult to imagine life before the Internet, a time when networked Email was a breakthrough, providing electronic messaging to the growing masses of PC adopters.  But Email, at least Networked Email (vs. its predecessor, Mainframe Email), required a store-and-forward architecture to enable wide-area transportation across disjoint computers, often over periodic slow phone line connections.

Converging Delivery Times of Messaging Platforms

The connections are faster now, but the physical networks making up the Internet are still heterogeneous resources, so Internet Email uses effectively the same store-and-forward architecture (via […]
