Ahead for the Year

Thursday 21 December 2017

Each year I try to estimate what the year ahead will be focused on. Normally I'm two or three years ahead of when it happens :-) This year though I suspect I'm a little closer and so I'm suggesting that 2018 will be

The year of Blockchain awareness.

Sure, not sexy by way of a title. And I think the focus is right - it will NOT be about crypto-currencies (though they too will continue to take up much space) nbut WILL be about how the Blockchain itself (the very cool TMI part of this whole development) is fiunally understood for what it offers.

Cryptocurrencies were just the first to jump on board the idea of a distributed ledger and have attracted the 'get rich quick' players and along with it, much hype and media attention. But 'provenance' of food stuffs like wines or meats, is one HUGE area that SHOULD be tapping into what a #Blockchain offers

And there's also one massive area - digital books and digital music. When you #Blockchain digital items you can loan a product tomsomeone else but then no longer hold it or access it yourself until it is returned to you. That hasn't been doable in the digital world.

#Blockchain makes that a possibility and with it, the evolution of the digital space

Beyond VUCA - the VUCA Squared concept
Wednesday 10 July 2019
Most people who've been involved in planning and strategy development will have heard of VUCA - Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous. Emerging out of the US War College in 1987, it's come to be more widely used by consultancies aiming to at least 'sound smart'. But that's not the main problem with its usage
