COMMENCEMENT SPEECHES

N.C. State (2009); University of Michigan 2005 (PDF) and CGU (2004)

 

I give speeches on topics like:

The Big Shift & The Power of Pull
It is understandable that all of us focus on short-term economic events as they play out—particularly in times of crisis and recession.  At the same time, however, it is dangerous to lose sight of the deep changes that will continue to unfold long after the current economic downturn is a memory. We face a long-term performance challenge that continues to intensify. The steps we take now to address this challenge will not only help us to weather the current economic storms but will position us to create significant economic value in an increasingly challenging business landscape.

The power of pull provides a roadmap for the practices and institutions required to harness knowledge flows and create significant economic value. More generally, the emphasis on the pivotal role of the individual in catalyzing the next wave of institutional changes helps to remind us that the difficult but rewarding journey ahead begins with each of us.

Rethinking Globalization: Innovation in a Flat World
The intensity of global competition calls for a review of your business strategy. Your company's sustainability depends on your ability to develop a constantly evergreen set of capabilities before anybody else does. How do you acclerate your firm's capability-building processes? Your talent development strategy? Is it possible to learn even faster?

Innovation Blowback: The Coming Asian Invasion

Emerging markets such as China and India have become breeding grounds for new management processes and practices that help companies to maintain or even improve the quality of their products and services while simultaneously slashing prices. The disruptive impact is now confined to developing countries, but "blowback" from this surge of innovation could quickly be unleashed on the rest of the world. To meet the challenge, established businesses must learn new skills—not least important, an ability to orchestrate complex networks of specialized enterprises. What steps must you take to protect your company's future?

Value Creation at the Edge:
Learning to Cope with Globalization
It is not just corporate training that is important but rather rich participation with partners who are at the edge. Ask: how do you learn as much from a partner as you learn from creating something yourself? How does distributed collaboration around the world become a critical strategy for survival? What are the most effective ways to convert your existing global supplier networks into new nodes of innovation?

Digital Culture and Learning in the Digital Age
Rethinking how today's kids that grow up digital learn, think, work, communicate and socialize. Understanding today's digital kids is of growing importance, not only to educators, but also to human resource departments, strategists, and marketing folks. Understanding the social practices and constructivist ecologies being created around open source and massively multiplayer games will provide a glimpse into new kinds of innovation ecologies and some of the ways that meaning is created for these kids -- ages 10 to 40. Perhaps our generation focused on information, but these kids focus on meaning -- how does information take on meaning?

Why IT Matters More Today than Ever Before
My claim is that we are just at the beginning of the real information revolution. But to understand how to achieve a sustainable competitive edge from IT, we must first rethink the essence of corporate strategy and then understand how Web services or, more generally, service-oriented architectures, enable a new kind of corporate strategy to become enacted. For this to work, a deeper alliance must be created between the CIO and the CSO and CEO. Much of my research here is done in collaboration with John Hagel.

Cloud Computing and Service Grids
We are at a strategic juncture which brings two separate developments together - cloud computing and service grids - providing the opportunity to slash cap ex and tco on the one hand and enabling a degree of radical adaptability - both in terms of computer utilization AND business flexibility, on the other hand. This confluence is unprecedented and opens up a host of strategic possibilities but this also requires new skills for the CIO and potentially a new positioning of CIOs before the full potential of this confluence can be realized...

Creating a Culture of Learning
Organizational learning and knowledge sharing have held out great promises, but have failed to deliver the goodies. Why? And what can be done about it? I claim a lot. But first we must understand how learning and creativity actually happen inside an organization, how IT can support them (which it doesn't today), and in general how and why knowledge both sticks within an a community of practice, but seems to readily leak out along the pathways of external networks of practice. Coming from PARC ,you can imagine I have had a lot time to reflect on this problem.

Managing Radical Innovation
Let's be clear: you can't manage invention or nurture it ... think innovation ecologies, not mechanisms. But you can manage innovation, the pathway to the market. Indeed, we constantly discover that there is often more creativity in bringing a radical innovation to market than what went into the invention in the first place. Yes, this is about lessons learned the hard way.

The Will to Innovate

I am tired of everyone pointing their fingers at the other guys -- corporations at unions; universities at government; and so on. Start by looking at your organization. What has your organization undertaken to innovate your own innovation processes?

I am distressed at how bad most CEOs are today in thinking out of the box. Boards aren't much better. And, of course, most institutions and foundations tend to be hesitant to re-invent themselves...

It's time to be bold; it's time to innovate innovation. The 21st century demands it...

Design, Design, Design
Why can't we keep things simple? Sure, we all complain, but why can't we design stuff that mere mortals (like you and me) can use? There are many reasons why this doesn't happen, but one of the main ones is that we, technologists, continually overlook the social resources that people use to orient themselves, to navigate through complex territory, and to help each other figure things out. Some of these ideas Paul Duguid and I cover in our book, The Social Life of Information, but others go to the heart of how we can design transparent systems that fade into our subconscious and are just there, not in our face.

Take the U.S. Constitution. Part of the constitution's strength was keeping it simple and honoring the social resources that a community of imagination (i.e. the nation) could deploy to evolve its interpretation as the world evolved. Design applies to institutions and nations, and individuals as well- the freedom to design your own life...
