Redesigning Work and Organizations for the Digital Age (3)

Conversation
Traditional big-media technologies like TV, newspapers, advertising and PR promoted one-way conversations.
The internet and d
igital technologies have replaced this with two-way conversations.
This is a significant shift that requires organizations to be re
-designed to listen, initiate, enable and participate in conversations internally and externally with customers and suppliers.
This is crucial for getting things done.

Design
In an era of dramatic change and global hyper-competition, the need for design, innovation, growth and learning within an organization is crucial.
A decentralized structure allows innovation to be embedded in the DNA of the organization through crowdsourcing and micro-business units.

Crowdsourcing is also central to brand building as it engages the customer almost to the point of own
ership.
And, building a design thinking culture and work practices unites internal teams.
