In the mid 90s, Ray Lane, the COO of Oracle, said “The next 5 years we will see more changes than the last 50 years.” The digital transformation we went through during the last 15 years is mind blowing. Great inventors of the 21st century have transformed smart toys into intelligent robots that speak, listen, walk, look and perform like human beings. Financial institutions have evolved from small money lending outlets to smart banking enterprises. Digital transformation in retail have changed the way we decide and buy. Driverless cars, driverless tractors that performs ploughing, cultivation and harvesting were beyond our imagination. But, not anymore.
Unfortunately, poverty still exists in the 21st century. Pollution, unhealthy food, infertile soil, decaying of environment, and unhappy workforce lead to more psychological and physiological sickness. Education got stuck in the 19th century factory moulding model. Workplace stress lead to suffering and disengagement.
Great human potential energized by holistic education, high performance workplace, digital empowerment, and enriched environment is the foundation of sensible progress. Atomistic thinking prevents us from solving inter-connected problems meaningfully and completely. We need a holistic approach to digitally transform and converge the brilliance of industries, institutions and individuals to unleash human excellence. Knowledge empowerment powered by digital empowerment can change the way we think, learn and perform to deliver excellence. This talk will explain why, how and what it takes to drive the digital and knowledge empowerment.
