HiQ Presentation 090821

  1. 1. “LAZINESS IS A DISINCLINATION TO ACTIVITY OR EXERTION DESPITE HAVING THE ABILITY TO DO SO” -Wikipedia Presentation for HiQ 2009-08-21 Hampus Jakobsson hampus snabela tat punkt se
  2. 2. (WHAT IS THIS DOCUMENT?) •Iheld a presentation for HiQ who donated 5000 SEK to Barncancerfonden as a compensation. It was held on a field with no electricity and had to be done a cappella, so to say. After the presentation HiQ spent the evening partying and drinking. This is the “reading version” to be able to remember anything that was said to make most use of the 5000 SEK. • These are my own opinions and has no connection to any organization I work for or advise.
  3. 3. WHO AM I? • Founded TAT 2002. Now 150 people and embedded in more than 300 million mobile phones from Nokia, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Motorola, and others. • Originally an engineer, but has always been fascinated of how people work. Worked and work with sales & strategy at TAT. • Likes to read and develop: http://www.amazon.com/gp/richpub/listmania/byauthor/A15TMLNEOY3KRE/ref=cm_pdp_lm_all • Loves to cook, is a vegetarian.
  4. 4. THE MOBILE INDUSTRY IS TOTALLY CHANGED • Motorola was the biggest manufacturer with a market share of 45% in 1994. Now Nokia has 36% and Moto 5%, but Apple and Google gets all the attention. And Apple the margins... • Itused to be complicated to build phones, and impossible to get something onto a phone after it was built. Now phones are fairly easy to build and open for anyone to innovate on. • The focus has moved from reception to functions, to the experience and the services. And so the power moves...
  5. 5. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? • Fatcats. I think the industry giants felt no need to innovate as they felt unthreatened. And when they did invest they broadened their portfolio with more of the same; Sony Ericsson went from 10 models to 40 per year in 3 years and Motorola continuously copied their own RAZR. The Japanese never learned to sell outside the island of Japan, mostly I think of lack of interest of other cultures. And meanwhile Taiwan (HTC), Korea (LGE, Samsung), and China (Lenovo, Huawei, ZTE) dreamed and worked to be the top of the world...
  6. 6. WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM THIS? 1. Only the paranoid will survive. Never think you are #1. Never rest. 2. Never get hubris, never try to grow relentlessly. Focus on becoming great with what you are good at. 3. Innovate: Spend some time trying new things, learn, mix and match from others and other industries.
  7. 7. WHERE ARE WE TOMORROW? • Technology is getting smaller, faster, and cheaper; processors, radio chips, and screens will be everywhere - two magazines have experimented with embedding screens in their papers (Esquire and Entertainment Weekly). Information is getting more widespread and time is moving faster (at least it seems so). • Humans are not getting smarter or faster. • So there are endless opportunities.
