In Short

The problem is that technology changes quickly, but we need them to solve the problems we have at hand. What else? Well, technology brings issues, too, ones that we don’t usually see at the time of implementation.

Today’s world has been changed by technology that was not there a month before. The question is, how are we going to keep up with it and outperform our competitors.

Here are something that might help your E-Commerce to be innovative even for tomorrow’s market.

1. Keep Eyes On Revolutions

By doing so, you will be able to look out for what happened and what comes next. Here are the rough timeline of our industrial revolutions.

  • 1st: 1780 – 1850 Production Revolution
  • 2nd: 1850 – 1900 Transport Revolution
  • 3rd: 1870 -1930 Scientific Revolution
  • 4th: 1950 – 2005 Computer Revolution
  • 5th: 2005 – 2055 Connectivity Revolution <- Merging of technologies

So keep eye on the improvement of production, transportation, and computation with connectivity.

2. Revolutions by Tech

What does technology mean?
> Tekhne + logos = “Skill-study”

Where does technology come from?
> human’s curiosity -> tinkering -> new ideas/ways of doing things -> new rules/recipes -> profits

Technology in the purest form: Here is the recipe, so DO THIS, and you will GET THAT!

A short note on invention and innovation.
Invention = new rules or ideas about what to produce and how to do it.
Innovation = where these ideas find practical use through being applied or commercialized by entrepreneurs.

3. Keep Innovation Alive

What kills innovation? Well, ask what kills entrepreneurs, ideas, new recipes to do things.

The short answer can be an “Incentive.” Without the outlook of profit, entrepreneurs will not invest their resources in the idea, and it will likely not take place in reality.

Incentives can be patent, copyright, a right to capitalize on the idea for some time without being copied. Because ideas are nonrival products, meaning anyone can access and apply.

But how to build a never-ending incentive to make sure that our business and the market itself stay innovative? You tell me! Or let’s find out about this in the next post ^^

Set the return of each improvement in the team now! Your business depends on innovation every day!
