Reflecting on transformations

Every Thursday at 3pm I run an internal event called Agile Café at my hub. There are no rules and the conversation flows organically. Just this makes it worthy.

Reflecting on transformations

Every Thursday at 3pm I run an internal event called Agile Café at my hub. There are no rules and the conversation flows organically. Just this makes it worthy.

But yesterday conversation went over a lot of interesting topics and, eventually, we pass over Thomas Cook. A company with 130 years of history doing business. Solid business, traditional business, with a lot of know-how about "how thinks are done here". Like Kodak was. Or RIM (the BlackBerry guys).

Fortune 500 top is still Walmart, from 1962, but with a profit loss 0f 32%. But if you look at fastest growing companies, you will find Amazon, Centene (healthcare 35 years-old company) or Facebook, as top 3, but also Netflix and lots of tech savvy and social companies.

Today Google is 21 years old.

We are trying to live a post-industrial era in an industrial way, some times. Time for change.
