Creators win in digital age

Sense Making

I discovered this new way of evaluating a company’s standing amongst competitors in this video over on HBR (and there is a follow-on link to a more detailed article worth reading): In the Digital Age, Physical Assets Are a Burden.

It’s especially relevant to the digital age we are currently in. It places a premium on companies that provide services and enable us to share what we have (insights, relationships, assets) and key is that they are asset light. Also key is that they leverage Intellectual Capital which chimes with what Michio Kaku said as I wrote about in an earlier post. I love that the winning companies are called Creators :)

Watch the video and read the article to see the approach they took- captured in the chart below:

After robots and AI – intellectual capitalism where creativity and imagination thrive

Sense Making

I loved this video by Michio Kaku, a theoretical physicist, futurist, and popularizer of science.

Probably because it supports my hypotheses that creativity, imagination and innovation will be the high ground of organisational actualisation as work modernises. Check out my post on that here: The Modern Organisation’s Hierarchy of Needs.

I also believe like he does, that this is something robots and AI will not be able take away from humans, at least not for the foreseeable future.

We’re moving from a commodity based capital, like coal, to intellectual capital, like rock and roll.
