當傳統企業決定和你談創新

「辦創新」 和 「扮創新」 之間絕對係一門藝術:老闆想扭轉局勢、BD想天馬行空、中層想不變應萬變、設計師想一步到位… 華麗轉身極可能焦頭爛額。做咗心理準備,方能把握好運,迎接歹運。

世界難撈既時候,更要知己知彼。

企業有資源,一定比初創公司容易成功?個個都寫Chatbot,唔通間間公司都真係需要寫隻 Chatbot 咩。

面臨數碼轉型,企業除了「裁員」之外,倖存者還要面對什麼轉變, 就算你接受「變幻才是永恒」這個定律,都想知下變啲咩先得㗎,不然變到「亞視永恒」咁就無謂啦!

When traditional firm asks you about innovation…

Finding the sweet spot between “Innovation” and “Imitation” is definitely a piece of art. Your boss wants to turn over the current business situation; business development team has loads of crazy ideas; mid-level managers wouldn’t want any change; and designers would always seek for perfection in one go. Overturning the status quo overnight will definitely give you all the painful lessons to be learnt, and so let’s get prepared for the worse and look forward to the best!

You shall also know your enemy and know yourself, especially during this difficult time.

Enterprises are usually resourceful, but does this give them an edge in innovation than startups? Everyone is creating a Chatbot, but does every company really need one?

Besides being laid off during digital transformation, what are the qualities required for the “survivors” to adapt in this constantly-changing environment? You are here to find out.
