How Digital Agencies Will Fail Everytime

Wednesday 1 October 2014

Tomorrow I'll be at the State Library of Victoria as part of the #V21 Digital Summit. In my futurist, pragmatist role I'll be presenting few ideas about why 'Your Future is NOT an App', then later in the day facilitating an onstage debate about Disruption's role in Innovation. And if it is anything to go by from last year's event, I'll have an opportunity to learn a significant amount. But back to the headline about Digital Agencies Failing -

As a technology agnostic, I don't buy into the 'all tech is good' or 'all tech is bad' view of the world. What I'm looking for is how tech might be used and whether that will be an improvement on today. And this is where the demise of digital companies begins because unless they focus on the end user, they can get caught up in everything the technology can do, and miss the important 'people' factor.

I'll come back and add more ideas in after tomorrow about what I said. In the meantime, you can check out AIMIA's #V21 Digital Summit website

Waving Goodbye to Wedgewood's Factory in HR
Sunday 7 March 2021
I was doing it well before then and there's clips of me online going back as far as 2010 or so, railing against the idea of human resources as a label and the insistence by HR managers or CEOs that only people who work 'in the office' are going to be productive. It Is A Lie. And even more research is proving it
