Overview

Industry 4.0 requires a paradigm shift (the way we think, work and perform) to develop whole-brain managers, whole-brain leaders, and whole-brain technopreneurs. Going successfully into the future requires the competence to integrate, implement, innovate, and improve continuously, and this applies to people, process and planet (AI Technology). The result will be faster, better, and smarter performance. Design thinking skills are – holistic, systems, critical, and iterative lateral and disruptive thinking.

This one day seminar gives an insight into the 6 stages of development to ride the Industry 4.0 wave:

Awareness: What is design thinking for management, leadership, technopreneurship?
Alignment: Why is design thinking mission critical to every manager, leader and technopreneur?
Action: How do we cultivate design thinking for individuals, teams, and the organization?
Adoption: Who are the authentic design managers, leaders and technopreneurs?
Assurance: When should we develop a pipeline of design thinkers for a multiplying effect?
Anticipation: Where does design thinking reap the most benefits?

Agenda

8.30am Registration

Most courses on design thinking focus on products and services from the customer perspective. A few courses have discussed the imperative of design for business, yet to-date no design thinking maestro has addressed the necessity of integrating management, leadership, and technopreneurship. This needs to be done to create the right performance culture, and to become faster, better, and smarter than the competition in Industry 4.0.

The essence of a high-performance organizational culture is:

  • Competent managers optimize resources to achieve the highest level of productivity in the industry.
  • Effective leaders develop a pipeline of leaders to grow, glow and globalize the company for brand leadership and equity.
  • Savvy technopreneurs invest in the right project, people and process to stay relevant and remain sustainable to beat the competition.

Design thinking is necessary to create the right mix of competent managers, effective agile leaders and savvy technopreneurs. The goal is to achieve best practice in management, leadership, and technopreneurship.

Managers, leaders and technopreneurs are people. The right process will make them better managers, leaders and technopreneurs. This 3-hour seminar provides the road map, transition change management process and tools, viz.

Awareness: what is design thinking for management, leadership, technopreneurship?
Alignment: why is design thinking mission critical to every manager, leader and technopreneur?
Action: how to we cultivate design thinking for individuals, teams, and the organization?
Adoption: who are the authentic design managers, leaders and technopreneurs?
Assurance: when should we develop a pipeline of design thinkers for a multiplying effect?
Anticipation: where does design thinking reap the most benefits?

The methodology, templates, and tools prescribed in this seminar are proven. The project-based action learning consultancy project span over eight years to turnaround a debt written conglomerate to become a world-class super-efficient organization. It was originally known as Design Thinking for MBOS (Management by Olympic System).

Industry 4.0 requires a paradigm shift (the way we think, work and perform) to develop whole-brain managers, whole-brain leaders, and whole-brain technopreneurs. The route is through project-based action learning for supreme execution capability. Going successfully into the future requires the competence to integrate, implement, innovate, and improve continuously, and this applies to people, process and planet (AI Technology). The result will be faster, better, and smarter performance. Design thinking skills are – holistic, systems, critical, and iterative lateral and disruptive thinking.

A technopreneur is a person. Technopreneurship is a process of developing a competent manager to become an agile leader, and ultimately to become a savvy technopreneur.

This 4-hour seminar gives an insight into the 6 stages of development to surf Industry 4.0:

Awareness: what is technopreneurship?
Alignment: why technopreneurship is vital to a country, industry, and company?
Action: how to cultivate technopreneurship?
Adoption: who are the authentic technopreneurs?
Assurance: when to multiply technopreneurship?
Anticipation: where technopreneurship works best?

There are three case illustrations.

  • A professor who transformed himself into a technopreneur with proven success.
  • A professor of chemistry who decided to expand his knowledge in the commercial world, transformed himself into a technopreneur and became a leading authority in surgical gloves.
  • An engineer with the inspiration of Bill Gates and the late Steve Jobs, who from a young age decided to become an entrepreneur. He succeeded, scaled his success by exporting automated testing machines across the globe, sustained success through foreign direct investment, and contributed back to society as a company with corporate social responsibility.

The seminar comes with real life examples, proven processes and tools. This enables the audience to ponder whether they have the right strategy, to be executed by the right process, using the right tools and technology. Getting it right at each stage leads on to employability, marketability, and productivity. There needs to be self-awareness, and awareness of how technopreneurship can help everyone to transform their passion into reality.

Investment in the Technopreneurship seminar for only SGD 30 to know how to stay relevant and sustain your competitive edge in Industry 4.0. Only 11 books have been written about it. The e-book is also available from Amazon.com at USD15.

Entrepreneurs have to transform into technopreneurs in the Digital Economy because of IoT (internet-of Things) and AI (Artificial Intelligence) in the cyber physical system of technology.

Old wine in new bottles will not work. The future skills for developing human capital in the next decade depend on unification of holistic, systems, critical and lateral thinking for design thinking in competencies to integrate, implement, innovate and improve continuously, i.e. execution capability of company in the era of Artificial Intelligence of Industry 4.0.

We must learn faster, better, and smarter to beat the competition.
