Re: Transform Sigma CTO
Part of the challenge, then, is to make sure that we never create what I"d like to call a "zero sum " atmosphere that merely rewards winners--everyone has to be vested in the whole process--although with the zeal of Automation and lack of true apparent regard for Human Capital, one wonders as epitomized by this:

Remaining hopeful, though, as we bid farewell to January 2018...have to....

Re: Transform Sigma CTO
I would say - It needs all the right combination for such initiative.

A clear thinker at top level that can define strategy and vision.

A next level leader that can cascade the objective well into mutile layers teh right way.

A group of right skilled staff that can roll their sleeves up and take up the responsibiity and get the work done.

Re: Transform Sigma CTO
@mp:

Very true.

In general we tend to be naturally reactive. But that subsides the ability to think and reactions tend to be more impulsive. If chnage is perceived right way, that's when reaction can be avoided. Instead we get an opportunity to learn more about it and be anticipative about how we can move along the lines of forthcoming change and gear towrads the same.

@DHagar:

Unless we learn how to move this beyond CTO's, it will have a limited capability and too often end up operating as a silo of progress rather than enterprise transformation.


This is so true. Undoubtedly it has to start from there when it comes to defining strategy and vision. But then all that needs to be cascaded down appropriately so staff at different levels can pick their share of responsibilities in the whole process.

Re: Transform Sigma CTO
@elizabethv - good thoughts!  In actuality, profit is a "result" not a goal.  It has to be in context with customers, employees, etc., in order to produce value and earn money.

Re: Transform Sigma CTO
@batye, thanks!  Yes, if we don't make it a tool for humans we will have a hard time getting humans to effectively engage with it.  And why have technology then?

Re: Transform Sigma CTO
@mpouraryan - I think that's an important distinction you make. And could be the difference between one hit wonders and successful bands overall. The focus has to be on a broad overall goal that should realistically be ever-evolving to meet the needs to the clientele and company. I recently saw a post by someone, possibly Richard Branson, a taxi driver told him to never work for money (I think this was long before he had made a ton of money.) I think if a companies goal is money, they will quickly lose focus and the ability to be successful. (This could be what's happening with Netflix right now.)

Re: Transform Sigma CTO
@Ariella - That's a really good interpretation. And makes me feel a little bit better about my own life path. I'm glad this kind of thing is being pointed out and discussed more. I kind of wonder how many people over the years have decided to give up and quit because they didn't realize how hard it was for everyone else to achieve their success. Especially with social media any more, people tend to just focus on highlights and you rarely see struggles. It's good to know most of us don't arrive at our goals without a little turmoil.
