Digitalization will bring people back to the forefront.
It is about focussing on the customer, more cooperation and creativity.
Is it a social revolution driven by the challenges of the globalization?
Our technological possibilities will continue to make radical developments possible.
But do we now have to accept that the algorithm will become our ruler?
The algorithm is developed by humans and is used by them. This includes networks of millions of intelligent nodes. In contrast, however, the human brain contains 86 billion nerve cells and a chemical system that allows additional intelligent connections. Our brain can access abilities that have been stored over millions of years, our DNA.
This briefly and concisely describes the “unique selling point” of us humans.
With new digital intelligences we can bring people, their talents and the effective into to the focus. The general and efficient, standard processes and routine activities take a back seat.
When a bank consultant enters his office in the morning and starts the computer, he will soon have done 80 percent of his previous work. He will have time for the essential, for individual cases where his judgement, his tact is needed.
The digital technology of the new world promotes what suppressed industrial technology. People as designers, not only as executors in the process. We can concentrate on what only humans can do, what no computer can do.
Everyone talks about how digital change is changing our working world.
What does this mean for each and every one of us?
Anyone can choose, move hierarchically upwards, go to workspaces that are not digitized or work with intelligent machines.
The central theme is further training:
Everyone needs a basic knowledge of “technology” and managers are facing challenges in developing the company from “ME” to “WE”, from “specification” to “self-organisation”, from “error prevention” to “trial and error”, from “domestic orientation” to “external orientation”.
This requires not only person-centric approaches, but above all organizational changes that are oriented to the question:
Are we positioned to quickly build new business models that are compatible with the new digital world?
