In this viewpoint we argue that a vast majority of companies seem to have started digitalizing themselves aimlessly, with no clear objectives of how they want to move forward. It's time to re-examine the facts and adjust the course. [...]

The age of collaboration

Start up and Corporates need each other

Technological adoption has never been as fast as today, and many corporates have already suffered from not being able to keep up with the pace of change. Over the past 10 years, an average of 45 companies joined the Fortune 500 every year compared to only 29 during 1986-1995. 65% of today’s Fortune 500 companies only joined within the last 20 years. Startups have played a key role in accelerating this change. Today’s well experienced, well-educated and well-funded startups are certainly here to stay. We will likely see some correction at the high-end range of valuations, but we do not expect any bubble to burst, as fundamentals are intact. [...]

The aspired advantages, such as cost savings, flexibility and access to innovation, have often turned into dependency and inability to get the full value of the relationship. Taking a fresh look can provide the opportunity to transform the operational as well as the contractual set-up and to radically increase the value. [...]

The NOC Technology & Innovation Management Challenge

Improving performance in technology management

National Oil Companies (NOCs) are spending more and more on Rn'D. But this has not yet had much of an impact. With the oil price currently well below the break-even point of their nations' budgets, they are still behind Independent Oil Companies (IOCs) in terms of Rn'D effectiveness. IOCs have been shown to adjust faster to a new baseline price. Arthur D. Little (ADL)'s framework for En'P Technology management suggests that better focus on delivering the corporate strategy through active portfolio management, and an organizational form that links technology with projects or operations and embeds deployment in budgetary planning, can help.
