Lean Brain Management: More Success and Efficiency by Saving Intelligence
Intelligence is wasted on problems that themselves have been caused by an excess of intelligence. Lean Brain stands for consistent economization of intelligence in all realms of life: Intelligent systems will only be operated by unskilled workers. Education, universities, and schools would become obsolete. A week of training would be enough for virtually any job. In response to phone calls, send this prescription.
Lean Brain can survive on just a very small amount of central intelligence. Potential savings amount to trillions! This is demonstrated using Germany as an example. With this book, Dueck presents a radical suggestion for world improvement. The desire to laugh infinitely about it will eventually segue into a collective rude awakening. These lower the barriers of entry as new ways of value creation are invented by small, high energy individuals backed by VCs.
Large organizations need to embrace these concepts to accelerate validated learnings from clients, and evolve their products and services much faster.
Lean Brain Management: More Success and Efficiency by Saving Intelligence by Gunter Dueck
Continuous delivery is a software engineering approach where teams produce software in short cycles. The key is to ensure that the software can be reliably released at any time, requiring automating the entire software development processes, and including the operations and infrastructure aspects. Once software is released, user feedback is usually automatically gathered to provide insights into how to further improve the product or service. When I joined Softtek in there were only about 20 of us.
From the get-go we had the startup culture running through our veins. Through a program we call RunLean, we returned to those roots, instilling a highly agile, client-centric mindset as part of our operational culture. I will describe more details about this approach in a future Playbook, and tackle one important preconception: in the minds of most people, Lean Startup seems exclusively a tech phenomenon, until GE adapted it. With the implementation of their FastWorks program, GE applied Lean Startup principles to the design and manufacture of the Monogram line of kitchen appliances.
Lean Start Up is for grown-ups too. A digital service catalog fully defines the scope and parameters of a service.
Clearly defining the services and coding them into a digital system will enable organizations to lay the foundation into which digital governance and RPA are built. A digital governance system enables an organization to control and manage their services effectively. Governed by KPI and SLAs, organizations can then systematically improve service quality, review performance, and manage efforts.
Advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning are enabling machines to observe, plan and act. This provides not only efficient delivery, but also service elasticity and record-breaking gains in agility.
Finding the Right Fit
We organize dozens of hackathons every year, and we are constantly amazed by the results. Besides serving as a learning and social event, typically focusing on how to solve a social issue, they also help strengthen key agile principles. We nurture the spirit of tinkering, trying things out. The platform encourages our RunLean methodology for agile project execution, and most of the demos rely on agile development practices. The past week, I learned that one of us had built a 3D printer totally from scratch. Flavoring tasks into challenges and games can produce incredible results. Our Socializer app has seen very rapid adoption within Softtek.
It allows employees to discover and stay up to date on thought leadership articles, events and other company happenings. Part of its success is its leaderboard, which rewards active sharing. During the past 3 years we have engaged with clients to transition their entire portfolio to the cloud. These shifts free funds and talent, but more importantly, enable the organization to do new things they never thought possible. Migrating to SaaS plays along the same line.
Open Source enabled Facebook, Google and even Apple to get to where they are. The sheer number of libraries and utilities, and the flexibility to tinker and adapt them makes Open Source a key element of agility. We are facing a tsunami of platforms and connected things: sensors, smart products, personal robots, intelligent products, brilliant manufacturing, wearables. With no dominant platform for any task, the best way to be agile is to decompose your value into micro-services that app or services can plug into.
A term coined by Gartner, which reflects the future of business, dominated by algorithms that make autonomous decisions in all areas of the organization. This represents the ultimate agility play, as it basically shifts its limits into the milliseconds realm. They make decisions in less than a millisecond. Algorithmic business will engulf every other industry, and deliver agility at the speed of light. Even more profound are the implications of advances towards General Artificial Intelligence. Contrary to traditional approaches, AI systems are now learning to ask questions, make non-trivial inferences and connect the building blocks of other AI systems unattended.
Machines may soon have the potential to act as super-humans in key positions.. March was special. Considering how exponentially more complex Go is than Chess, the outcome came as a surprise. This event has fueled optimism — maybe exaggerated — in which Neural Networks became the new black. Drones, Helicopters. Anything that moves may end up destined to be operated by autonomous AI. Getting something from A to B will require no human involvement at all. Can you think of new business models enabled by these new possibilities? The Softtek AI platform works alongside many of our teams, helping automate repetitive tasks without explicitly having to teach it how to do it.
We live in an era that is creating unprecedented avenues for new value creation. To capture this value, organizations need to transform and adapt in ways that enable them to turn these opportunities into reality. In our Mind The Gap research, we focus our attention in current digital gaps that are preventing organizations from realizing their true potential, and the Digital Playbooks focus on bringing ideas and illustrative examples of how others have bridged those gaps. A playbook is traditionally associated with a book containing a sports team's strategies and plays: a playbook conveys play, fun, trying out new things.

It also relates to strategy. But organizations face different challenges, opportunities, situations and needs. The playbook is thus a source of inspirations and examples to enrich your own plays and plans, to be applied at the right timing and context.
How Artificial Intelligence Will Play a Vital Role in the Supply Chain
In the auto industry, it used to be that once a new car was launched, it was destined to keep the same capabilities during the rest of its life. Tesla is changing this paradigm. Tesla has conceived its cars with a software product mindset. Each car is released to the market with the assumption that it will be constantly upgraded.

Banco Santander is one of the largest and most successful banks in Europe, as well as globally. While all banks have done a massive transition to online banking, and their world is being shaken by technologies like block-chain, Santander is investing in high risk, high potential new software ventures. No other company has as wholeheartedly embraced software into its business strategy as GE.
