d_LAB series

How can the business benefit from systematic data usage?

With our “d_LAB” we provide a systematic analysis on how data-driven practices can improve processes and enhance business outcomes. The algorithms and tools necessary are available through gannaca partner thehuman.ai, including methods of artificial intelligence application. In the course of our “Babor d_LAB” series, the corresponding strategic innovation resources are systematically applied throughout the entire organization and its ecosystem. By taking a holistic look at the possibilities of data-driven business practices and models, it can be systematically decided which investments and interventions make sense when and where in the structure. By transferring knowledge about the latest possibilities and instruments for tapping data-based value creation potentials in the digital economy, our client is enabled to successfully defend their own market position, but also to intelligently expand it.

applied methods:

  • Exponential Organisation
    SCALE model:

    S: staff on demand. Just like Uber doesn't actually employ its own workers, we're moving to a model where companies outsource most of their major work, giving them more flexibility to quickly adapt to market changes.

    C: community and crowd. Exponential organisations use collaborative means to build community and scale their work.

    A: algorithms. UPS is a good example of a company using an algorithm to maximise efficiency--in this case, finding the best routes for trucks.

    L: leased assets. Similar to having staff on demand, exponential companies have assets on demand and don't own much of what they use.

    E: engagement. To create connectedness between the organisation and the community, exponential organisations use things like digital feedback, incentives, and gamification.

     

    IDEAS process:

    I: interfaces. These organisations have very customised processes for how they interface with customers and other organisations. An example of this is Apple's strict rules on what reaches its app store.

    D: dashboards. To manage employees with a lightweight and high touch, exponential organisations use real-time management systems and dashboards to measure business metrics.

    E: experimentation. Exponential organisations operate like lean start-ups--constantly adapting, tweaking, and tuning their efforts to match external factors.

    A: autonomy. Many exponential organisations streamline with a decentralised authority structure, which means no reporting structure or job titles.

    S: social. Using collaborative technologies, these organisations manage real-time communication to keep all employees up to date.
  • Futures Thinking
    Futures Thinking offers ways of addressing, even helping to shape, the future; but it is not about gazing into a crystal ball. It illuminates how policy, strategy, and action can promote desirable futures and help prevent those we consider undesirable. It stimulates strategic dialogue, widens our understanding of the possible, strengthens leadership, and informs decision-making.

    Futures Thinking is a method for informed reflection on the major changes that will occur in the next 10, 20, or more years in all areas of social life, including education. Futures Thinking uses a multidisciplinary approach to pierce the veil of received opinion and identify the dynamics creating the future.

    While the future cannot be reliably predicted, we can foresee a range of possible futures and ask which are the most desirable for particular groups and societies. A variety of methods – qualitative, quantitative, normative, and exploratory – help to illuminate the possibilities, outline policy choices, and assess the alternatives.

applied services:

  • Lectures
    Today's decision-makers have to learn for their whole lives. Subject-specific lectures are a way of integrating knowledge transfer into daily routines conveniently. We offer two types of lectures: a. external thought leader lectures covering the fields of data strategies, 21st century leadership, and innovation culture b. internal knowledge transfer Our founder and Chief Inspiration Officer, Christopher Peterka delivers high-level lectures. He has given talks and lectures for more than 15 years to hundreds of organisations in more than 50 countries worldwide. Please send us your request or take a look at his trending topics here.

We assess it quickly, to the point, and based on cutting-edge expertise. As a result you get a personal presentation face to face and a brief evaluation in writing. Some exemplary causes for assessments usually are: - Market Opportunities - Digital Fitness - Organisational Innovation Culture - (Dark) Data Potential
  • Advisory
    For a decent amount of time and – much more importantly – with intense practical experience we have specialised in change and innovation culture across industries, cultures, and generations.
