    How to make things happen. Started age 10 in robot wars.Looked for manufacturers to help in the UK. Googled factories in China. The geeks were hight level engineers in large companies. At 15/16 was managing $10m supply chain. An engine to solve problems without limits of purpose. The greatest innovations are not being pushed forward as people don’t know how to leverage them. Human being don’t like being told what to do.Empower people to own your mission for themselves. This will change behaviour. Insight from the inside promotes innovation. Align goal to promote behavoiur. Help people to achieve their goals and they sell to themselves.Make data entry passive. Look at context and make it as simple yes/no.Understand what you are trying to push and who you are pushing to. What are their goals. Culture of iteration and feedback to understand a scenario. What do they want, think and how do they work. Build a sensor network to track how things are being used.

About Shaun Farrell

I have been involved in the construction sector since 1986 and over the years I have seen things change dramatically. Much of the change has been directly as a result of technology. This blog will be about the key combinations of People, Process and Technology. Any views expressed here are strictly my own.
