XTech talk ...

By extracting the audio from Ian Forrester's recording and mixing it with the original slides, I've put together a video of my talk from XTech.

Overall the talk was so, so.

It needs a bit more sparkle and some of the concepts didn't come across as clearly as I had hoped. There are possibly too many interwoven ideas and a few of the graphics are looking a bit tired as well.

The main topics are:-

  • An introduction to commoditisation, creative destruction and competitive advantage.
  • An introduction to innovation.
  • An introduction to the underlying processes.
  • Why nothing in management is simple.
  • How this impacts IT.
  • Why open is essential for a service world.

Why open matters
from innovation to commoditisation
