Master or Servant? Are We Humans Still ‘Top Dogs’ in This Brave New World of Massive IT? with Gerben

2021-08-19T15:46:08+00:00

Master or Servant? Are We Humans Still 'Top Dogs' in This Brave New World of Massive IT? IT used to be just a tool. Humans created the tool and humans used the tool. But some fundamental changes are happening. IT makes change of organizations harder, not easier. IT, by being a gatekeeper between us and reality, is starting to strongly influence what we believe, how we interact, and even what happens.

Circular Business Design with People’s Needs at the Core In a world of looming resource scarcity and rapid change in consumer behavior there is a strong need for existing business to transform, from linear to circular.

We have learnt that people are increasingly interested in usership rather than ownership. They see value in things, and they don’t like [...]
