The Big Shift: Challenge and Opportunity for Women

John Hagel

  As pressure increases, there is tendency to adopt a zero sum view of the world – if someone else gains, I necessarily must lose.    If women want to participate in the effort, they must be prepared to adopt and embrace this masculine archetype. This knowledge is usually experienced holistically rather than reducible to abstract categories and isolated modules. How are women affected by the longer-term changes that are transforming our business environment?

Like most major innovations it needs to be accompanied by a slew of minor supporting innovations that make it practical, easy to use and effective: modulating the voice with speed, pitch and emphasis, adding silent delays, adding subtitles, pronouncing difficult words and coordinating voice with visuals. A better way is to use modulation tags to directly emphasize a word.

Dave Snowden

This gives considerable flexibility when you are building new modules, or interacting with other applications or capabilities. You don't need a full cycle test across all modules before you deploy others. If the objects test out, if the assembly in that module writes data to the database then its ready to roll. One of the things you see when you adopt this approach is that as you reach the end of the process you have more capability than you originally designed.
