New Things

It took me a while to realize that we need to change a view on “New Things”

  • As a producer, developer, creator, innovator … you have to think about “other ways” your product will be used. A watch should ideally show time but it became a piece of jewelry which for example a calculator never did. Same goes for all new IoT products – people will use them in a way that originally was not anticipated.
  • As a user you have to change your way of using new things. eBooks should not be read same way paperback books were. I learned today that when electric machines were introduced, productivity did not increase, as people still placed new machines same way steam engine machine were¬† – aligned with the pipes. Only when factory managers utilized the power of “mobility” of electric machines – productivity increased.
