Digital requires to imagine the unimaginable
52
Scary ?
Eins lässt sich – zumindest derzeit – noch nicht in Algorithmen pressen: Leidenschaft. Gekoppelt
mit der Bereitschaft, auch Dinge zu tun, die nach historischer Erfahrung eigentlich schiefgehen
müssten.
Gewinnen wird daher der, der durch Daten fundierte Entscheidungen mit Instinkt und Leidenschaft
koppelt. Und mit der Gabe, sein Team, seine Mitarbeiter gegen alle Widrigkeiten von dieser Mission
zu überzeugen. Auf dass aus der Herrschaft der Daten keine Diktatur werde!
Matthias Hohensee, Bürochef Silicon Valley der WirtschaftsWoche
wiwo.konferenz.de/businessafterfuture/matthias-hohensee-aus-der-herrschaft-der-daten-soll-keine-diktatur-werden/
53
In other words:
If you want to run a sustainable enterprise in the digital age, don't drum
up people to create digital projects and don't assign them tasks and
work, but rather teach them to long for the disruptive opportunities
- when digital meets physical.
Adopted from Antoine de Saint-Exupery
