Uma novela sobre Mongo (parte III)

Parte I e parte II.

Porque Mongo é tão estranho e mete medo a muita gente:
"the ability to create products that enable us to own the tools is where the economy is headed.
It’s what technology wants. It fragments down to the micro level and becomes personal. The job of the corporate hero of tomorrow is to provide a platform for customer independence.
The reason why it’s hard for companies to cope with this shift to micro businesses, is that it’s a multi-generational shift. Given that the dawn of the industrial revolution was in the late 1700s, and if we use 30 as an average age for a new parent (it used to be much lower), we’re living through a nine-times generational shift in lifestyle and economic understanding. This is a significant amount of indoctrination handed down from parents and employers of how things should be done and what works in this world. It’s pretty hard to unlearn all of this, especially when most of it has been proven empirically. [Moi ici: O modelo do emprego do século XX não é necessariamente a última Coca-Cola no meio do deserto, foi uma criação bem sucedida e ajustada a um certo tempo e desenvolvimento técnico-cultural. Muito provavelmente dará lugar a modelos mais assentes no empreendedorismo.]
The problem is that our business environment is changing quickly and the habits of large organisations are not [Moi ici: E não são só elas, é também o Estado habituado a esse modelo e todas as suas funções que dele dependem. Imaginem o impacte de algo deste tipo nas escolas, por exemplo, sem a protecção do Estado]. They prefer all replacement staff to have the same industry experience, the same education, the same previous job title, the same customer experience, and experience in the same channels of distribution, which is essentially a risk-reduction strategy for the hiring manager if things turn out badly rather than a growth strategy for the organisation. It’s not surprising, given that the primary role in large organisations is to protect against the financial downside rather than chase a revenue upside. This course of action works as long as the business and technology environments remain stable. The problem is that our business environment is changing quickly and the habits of large organisations are not."
