Financieel-management. “Ik eet mijn Nike’s op als Finance de architect of choreograaf zou zijn van het verdienmodel van de toekomst!”


, zei een jonge bevlogen startup founder onlangs tijdens de opening van het Jaarcongres Finance Transformation. De toon is gezet en het mag voor iedereen geen verrassing zijn dat de wereld exponentieel snel verandert. Veel organisaties lijken ‘verdraaid’ en ‘vast’ te zitten in hun eigen systeem. Uit onderzoek blijkt dat 50% tot 70% van de medewerkers min of meer ‘afgehaakt’ is. Het gevolg is een chronische onderbezetting van kennis, talent, passie en plezier.

Veel succesvolle en nieuwe startups zien in dat de huidige manier van (samen)werken en systemen aan een grens gekomen is. Om de status quo te doorbreken gaan de startups niet het (concurrentie)gevecht met de bestaande businessmodellen aan. The Architecture of Participation. By Tim O'Reilly June 2004 I've come to use the term "the architecture of participation" to describe the nature of systems that are designed for user contribution.

The Architecture of Participation

Larry Lessig's book, Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace, which he characterizes as an extended meditation on Mitch Kapor's maxim, "architecture is politics", made the case that we need to pay attention to the architecture of systems if we want to understand their effects. I immediately thought of Kernighan and Pike's description of the Unix software tools philosophy referred to above. I also recalled an unpublished portion of the interview we did with Linus Torvalds to create his essay for the 1998 book, Open Sources. Linus too expressed a sense that architecture may be more important than source code. And of course, the Internet and the World Wide Web have this participatory architecture in spades. In addition, the IETF, the Internet standards process, has a great many similarities with an open source software project.

How to find talent for jobs that don’t exist yet

Not only is technology impacting how we work and interact with each other, it’s transforming what we actually do for work. Consider this: 2 billion jobs that exist today will disappear by 2030, according to futurist Thomas Frey. 2 billion. That’s roughly 50% of all of jobs worldwide. Cathy N. Davidson, Duke University professor, backed up this prediction in her book Now You See It, noting that 65% of children entering grade school this year will assume careers that don’t yet exist.

Some 2 billion jobs will disappear by 2030, Frey predicted, as software and apps disrupt traditional businesses. The emerging “sharing economy” will create more enterprises like Uber and Airbnb, with independent operatives linked by apps. More workers, he suggested, will be freelancers, temps, independent contractors and self-employed entrepreneurs “co-working” in collaborative spaces very different from the traditional office.

Business Process Reengineering Cycle Business process re-engineering is a business management strategy, originally pioneered in the early 1990s, focusing on the analysis and design of workflows and business processes within an organization. BPR aimed to help organizations fundamentally rethink how they do their work in order to dramatically improve customer service, cut operational costs, and become world-class competitors.[1] In the mid-1990s, as many as 60% of the Fortune 500 companies claimed to either have initiated reengineering efforts, or to have plans to do so.[2]

The what and why of product experimentation at Twitter

This culture of experimentation is possible because Twitter invests heavily in tools, research, and training to ensure that feature teams can test and validate their ideas seamlessly and rigorously. The scale of Twitter experiments is vast both in quantity and variety — from subtle UI/UX changes, to new features, to improvements in machine learning models. We like to view experimentation as an endless learning loop: Build a hypothesis: Come up with an idea for a new feature or an improvement to an existing one.Define success metrics: Estimate the “opportunity size” — number of users who will be affected by the change.
