Human-Centred Organisations prevent shareholders from feeling overwhelmed by structure. They’re obsessed with the journeys taken by their customers, employees, partners, and those taken by “citizens”, and so they’re better able to create shared value for the company shareholders as well as society at large.

  1. 1. 1HUMAN CENTRED ORGANISATIONS Human Centred Organisations A world powered by people
  2. 2. 2 We are part time consumers, part time employees, citizens, parents, children, lovers, and hackers. Good Rebels Manifesto
  3. 3. 3HUMAN CENTRED ORGANISATIONS Individuals first, organisations second Along with incredible advances in productivity and efficiency, the industrialisation of modern society and the increasing prevalence of large corporations also brought with it an increase in bureaucracy. The 20th Century saw both the rise and fall of Collectivist thought, and nowadays we’re surrounded by mega- corporations supported by the unmotivated masses. While their existence has benefited the consumer greatly in terms of the reduced price of certain goods and services, the social impact of these corporate giants is far more complex. In the beginning, corporations were established for the sole purpose of generating capital. They have since evolved and are now more concerned with efficiency, first at the commercial level and later at an industrial one.
  4. 4. 4 In his book, Lo que ahora importa, Gary Hamel questions the role of these organisations in wider society. We are used to organisations hiring the individuals most likely to help generate value for their shareholders (organisation > individual > profit). Company first, people second. Hamel proposes an exercise to the reader: what would happen if the model were reversed? If organisations put themselves at the service of people, rather than shareholders, in order to make a real impact on society (individuals > organisations > impact)? This idea is not new; in fact, it’s just one of three business trends that have come together in recent years to form, what we at Good Rebels call, the “Human Centred Organisation.” Let’s explore these three trends in more detail. Triple Bottom Line This first trend goes by several different names, and there are many theoretical and practical approaches that share the same starting point, approaches we will explore more in a later section of this study. After 40 years of capitalist stronghold, and a mainstream business culture that revolved around the shareholder - a culture fiercely defended by economists such as Milton Friedman and management experts such as Michael Porter - the academic community began to question whether or not the shareholder should be considered legal owner of the corporations they’d invested in. The majority of today’s experts in management argue that companies should be engaging with society and, at the same time, delivering value to their investors. Business models based on ‘the Triple Bottom Line’ (profit, people, planet) demonstrate the importance of focusing on both shareholder and society, generating economic and societal value. Human centred design As the capacity for production increased and competition in almost all industries doubled, consumer power continued to grow. According to a number of authorities, we now find ourselves facing a new form of capitalism, one which provides the consumer with the power to govern the market, and even individual businesses, stealing control from shareholders. The obsession large digital technology companies have with developing products and services with
  5. 5. 5HUMAN CENTRED ORGANISATIONS the user in mind (think Google and Apple) has elevated them right to the top. As consumer power grew traditional disciplines, like ergonomics, were forced to evolve. In the 1980s and 90s this evolution gave way to Design Thinking, a methodology which utilised the minds of designers (industrial, architectural...etc.) in order to solve complex problems. Digitalisation Digitalisation has made available to citizens technologies that previously did not exist or that had required huge economic investment and were not commercially viable. Citizens are now able to coordinate amongst themselves, confront large public or private organisations and win, just like David and Goliath. Wikipedia, Bitcoin, Kiva and Khan Academy have all embraced the digitalisation revolution. They use Blockchain as a model, a technology that goes against everything large corporations once stood for. Trends within Human Centred Organisations • EFQM (European Foundation for Quality Management) • CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) • Shared Value (see Michael Porter) • Design Thinking • Consumer experience • Digital Start-ups • Social Networks • P2P Technology
  6. 6. 6 The demand for an improved consumer experience has forced us to reconsider our sales processes and channels, as well as the way in which we communicate in order to build brand loyalty and establish relationships with our customers. We need to remove corporate barriers, tear down and rebuild the functional structures within our organisation, in order to introduce a digital culture which, once established, will revolutionise the way in which work and collaborate with others. Corporations will have to adapt in order to survive in an environment dominated by disruptive technological start-ups. This, in parallel with our increasing obsession with the Internet of Things, data production and exploitation, will trigger a rise in social enterprise. Additionally, the level of trust in large corporations has hit an all time low . Citizens demand transparency and a commitment to positive social change. And so startups like Provenance are thriving; they now offer technology (blockchain and mobile) that provides consumer product traceability at the point of sale, certifying transactions made throughout the supply chain. These three trends underlie the concept of the human hentred organisation. Human centred organisations (HCOs) are obsessed with the consumer, worker and citizen journey. The consumer journey is the most well known, but the worker journey is attracting more and more attention and has been the subject of a number of different studies in the field of business theory. The third journey, that of the citizen, encompasses all those who do not fit within the first or second journey; it follows ordinary citizens and the relationships they have with organisations, partner organisations, collaborators (universities, NGOs...etc.), entrepreneurs, researchers, etc.

  9. 9. 9HUMAN CENTRED ORGANISATIONS The Consumer Journey Of the three journeys we’ve discussed, the consumer journey is the easiest to understand. Understanding the consumer journey allows us to promote consumer awareness and provide our audiences with unique and personalised experiences. It is obvious, therefore, and generally agreed upon that in this highly demanding and informed consumer environment, the commercial success of a company is largely dependent on the extent to which they understand their customers, as well as their ability to provide them with products and services adapted to suit their needs. 1
  10. 10. 10 From advertising to experience In the 1960s, the television reigned supreme; it was the most effective advertising medium. Advertising was a tool used by corporations to maintain a certain level of control over the market, but with the introduction of the Internet, everything changed. Traditional advertising (controlled by the company) gave way to “online recommendations” (decentralised by millions of people). Online recommendation; the phenomenon behind the success of Tripadvisor, Yelp, Google Maps, eBay and Amazon. For over 100 years, investment in advertising has remained stagnant, somewhere between 1-1.25% of the United State’s GDP. Over the last 6 years that number has dropped to 0.95%, a trend which makes clear the decreasing effectiveness of traditional advertising. This, coupled with the increasing influence of online recommendation on purchasing decisions made by the consumer, has resulted in a greater emphasis being put on user experience and product and service design. Globalisation and technological progress has provided us with cheap, more readily available resources with which to reduce competitive barriers. Digitilisation has also made it easier to replicate products and services; everything is a lot easier to copy, and so consumer experience and product design is more important than ever.

  11. 11. 11HUMAN CENTRED ORGANISATIONS Design centred around people and ergonomics The corporate world’s obsession with designing products and solutions from the point of view of the consumer has elevated designers and psychologists to the status of kings. This pursuit of perfect design and usability, driven by people like Steve Jobs, is now the simplest way a corporation can differentiate themselves, something that is increasingly difficult to do when relying on other factors like price or recognisability. This boom in design thinking not only allows corporations to adapt more efficiently to the needs of an increasingly demanding consumer, but also facilitates the application of this methodology to the definition of the consumer experience throughout its entire life cycle. The company can keep the consumer on their toes, anticipating their needs and surprising them with personalised products and services. Initially, companies like Starbucks were focused on defining new experiences for consumer groups, rather than individuals. Thanks to big data, we can now achieve excellence on an individual level, and companies like Amazon are leading the way.
  12. 12. 12 Beyond the consumer journey: personalisation and big data The consumer journey conveys the experience of a customer or consumer throughout the different phases that occur during an interaction between an individual and a brand, product or service. If the interaction is positive from the outset, it will most likely lead to consideration, conversion and subsequent recommendation. However, if it is negative, the individual may dismiss or reject the brand entirely, refusing to consider any other goods or services offered. This map of the consumer journey is the main tool used by companies to define which experiences drive decision-making. However, we now find ourselves at a crossroads, due in large part to the impact of big data. It’s becoming increasingly common to find commercial solutions in a more personalised approach based on purchase history or behaviour, made possible by advances in technology. To this end, it is essential that we gather as much information about the consumer as possible, something that can only be achieved by rewarding consumers for supplying us with that information. If the data received through the consumer’s omnichannel experience is properly analysed, predictive models based on artificial intelligence will determine next steps, allowing corporations to personalise communication, commercial offerings and the consumer experience as a whole. The objective of all this, is to optimise consumer value, establish an enduring relationship, and maximise commercial and emotional ties. This can only be achieved through a relationship that is both honest and transparent, one in which the consumer is satisfied at all times.
  13. 13. 13HUMAN CENTRED ORGANISATIONS The Co-Worker Journey 2 We know that the success of a company is dependent on the extent to which they understand the needs of their consumers; now more and more companies are becoming aware of the need to understand, facilitate and promote the relationship between brand and collaborator, their most essential asset. Collaboration and innovation are both necessary in order to optimise the co-worker journey.
  14. 14. 14 Along with a growth in consumer power, an oversaturated labour market and an increasing number of self-employed workers have brought with them new challenges. Companies are desperate to attract young talent; they’re aware that people are their best asset. The term ‘people first’ has been overused almost to the point of meaninglessness, but the reality is - the level of employee disaffection is high. Traditional organisations, those that are still familiar to us today, have for centuries defined their own relatively successful business models, capable of releasing the greatest number of goods and services to market and selling them at the lowest possible cost. This model is possible thanks to three key factors: a systematic division of labour, the standardisation of processes and a strong hierarchical structure. However, a digital tsunami is coming, and we’re going to have to confront economic and social environments that are far more competitive, complex and chaotic than those that resulted from the Industrial Revolution. It was this Revolution that gave rise to the most well known 20th century companies and corporations. We live in a fast-paced, hyperconnected and incredibly competitive world, in which complete control and sluggish bureaucracy no longer have a place. Society demands an agile and innovative organisational response, we can no longer rely on blind faith.
  15. 15. HUMAN CENTRED ORGANISATIONS 15 Cooperation and creativity cannot flourish within a highly standardised organisation, where talent and passion are filed away under the label of Human Resources, strangled by long-standing corporate paternalism. The great corporate injustice of our time is that only 20% of employees around the world feel committed to their work, and less than 40% identify with the culture and values of their company. Lack of alignment means loss of profit, and in terms of opportunity lack of alignment leads to failure and irrelevancy, regardless of any previous record of success. Happiness at work When it comes to leadership and people management, the most important question we need to ask ourselves is how best we can achieve ‘intrinsic’ motivation, a kind of motivation that instills employees with the passion and willingness to innovate. Research has shown that over the last 40 years, past a certain point, more money no longer motivates us. It does not make us better, or more efficient workers. Despite this, companies continue to offer more money and other extrinsic rewards in order to attract and retain employees. Daniel Pink has proposed a three axis framework as a guide for companies looking to motivate their employees: establish an exciting purpose, stimulate autonomy and encourage professional development. Companies that seek to foment this ‘entrepreneurial’ culture must first: 1) Establish a vision, a place in the world 2) Encourage personal and professional development 3) Give their employees the authority to make their own decisions and to develop their own ideas within the context of the collective mission
  16. 16. 16 At Good Rebels, we believe that working alongside stimulating, inspired colleagues, ready to help each other succeed, is in line with Pink’s framework. When it comes to happiness at work, what feeling better defines humanity than love? Love has been a source of happiness and one of the pillars upon which social relationships have been built throughout history. However, love in the workplace is not usually expected. We said in #Leadertarians that in order to retain talent and encourage innovation in the workplace, many startups and digital organisations allow their employees free reign, establishing a culture of ‘internal entrepreneurship’, or ‘intrapreneurship’ where employees are free to pursue their own projects and develop their own ideas, which in turn benefits the company. This same line of thinking eventually led to Google famous ‘20% time’ policy. Google’s liberated the ‘googlers’ and allowed them to spend 20% of their time developing their own personal projects, which were then promoted by the organisation. The Empowered Employee Just like the iPhone which, despite initial backlash, was eventually adopted by the organisational masses, beating out Blackberry in terms of popularity, these new organic methods of management will eventually gain widespread appeal, taking the place of traditional systems of management. Meritocracy will win out against hierarchical authority. Increased access to information will eliminate the need for functional silos. Decentralised organisations will reduce the amount of unnecessary bureaucracy, the kind that limits individual freedoms and frustrates employees. Lack of sovereignty will set the most intrapraneurial spirits and the most brilliant minds free, thereby creating a need for new procedures designed to keep order, sending us spinning into a vicious cycle. An internal social network can be set up to improve knowledge and information management, thanks to the constant flow of conversation between collaborators. Serendipity will enrich the exchange of ideas, the social network will become both a source of innovation - connecting different
  17. 17. 17HUMAN CENTRED ORGANISATIONS teams and collaborators, and a tool to improve productivity - speeding up the time it takes to reach a solution or access support. But when we think of what bonds employees to the place in which they work, we cannot think only about technology, but also mental frameworks. Not allowing employees to work from home is an endemic evil, so we keep working hour systems, made popular during the Industrial Revolution. Increased flexibility is a step in the right direction. At Good Rebels we’ve already committed to policies of unlimited holiday, freedom from schedules, and teleworking. These things have been a reality at Good Rebels for years, and they compliment our policy of absolute transparency where all Rebels have a presence within management committees and where we all decide which of our colleagues most deserves a raise in salary. But empowerment doesn’t work from top to bottom; empowerment is a bottom-up activity. The digitisation of our environment provides us with countless tools for day-to- day management, tools which make reliance on hierarchy unnecessary. Employees are capable of more autonomy, flexibility and self- management.
  18. 18. 18 Self-management Despite the fact that the newest generation is calling out for meritocracy, the number of companies adopting self-management as a management model “contrary to the established order and status quo” are few and far between. Companies like Gore, Semco or Whole Foods Market (acquired by Amazon), Morning Star (a tomato producer), AES Corporation (an energy company with 40,000 employees in 31 countries), Southwest Airlines (an American airline), as well as younger companies such as Buurtzorg (a Dutch home healthcare company) and Favi (a French car parts manufacturer), have already implemented a system of self- management. Self-management is not easy to implement and maintain, especially in more conventional workplaces, and is often a system rejected by the directorial elite. It is strongly democratic; necessitating absolute financial transparency, a reduction in the differences between salaries, a reduction in managerial privileges, teleworking, a lessening of bureaucracy and procedure, and consensus on tactical, and occasionally even strategic, decision making. Self-management elimites middle
  19. 19. 19HUMAN CENTRED ORGANISATIONS management, treats employees like adults and, in return, those organisations that implement a system of self-management can expect a more passionate, more motivated workforce. You can order an employee to perform a task, you can’t order commitment or loyalty. Crucially, before attempting to implement a system of self-management, you must understand the risks involved. Without a doubt, it is a complex and costly process that requires an enormous degree of self-discipline. But the result will be worth it; flexibility, unrestricted growth, and a holocractic system where “authority and decision-making are distributed horizontally.” In the next few decades implementing this sort of distributed, organic model of business will be more than necessary in order to cope with a rapidly changing, increasingly digitised environment. Leaders of industry must adapt to survive. . Co-creation and internal collaborative culture Innovation is a long distance race. It’s not a tool capable of transforming the average collaborator into a bona fide genius; it is, first and foremost, a way of understanding how best to manage knowledge, a form of leadership and a system of management built on trust. It’s learning based on learning. Innovation involves the implementation of a combination of different strategies aimed at facilitating the transfer of knowledge between employees and, consequently, allowing innovative thought to flourish. The greatest tool for inspiring innovation and competitiveness is tacit knowledge, that which is stored in our heads and not saved in a document. That said, this kind of knowledge is also more difficult to manage. For this reason, leading organisations have committed themselves to creating spaces for socialisation that, in addition to helping build trust between employees, allow for an exchange of experiences and ideas. Co-creation, in these kinds of organisations, is a social rite of passage. It provides employees with an opportunity to get to know their peers, figure out who knows what and where their strengths lie. Experience has taught us that, sooner or later, the majority of collective co-generation
  20. 20. initiatives fail. The reason for this is that a lot of these initiatives are planned and built on the margins of the company’s own internal ecosystem. They are simple, tactical strategies with no thought given to continuity, and with no real intention of altering the way in which the organisation functions. With this in mind, we must aim to develop a broader environment of collaboration within the company that allows for the agile and effective distribution of knowledge. Goodbye Human Resources, hello co-worker journey The role of the Human Resources department has been called into question since the advent of the most recent technological revolution. On one thing we can agree; the HR professional is in need of renovation. The new HR professional will require a combination of multidisciplinary skills: • Organisation • Teamwork and leadership • Internal engagement • Employee experience • Analytics or statistics • Digital solutions • Reputation of the employer 20
  21. 21. 21HUMAN CENTRED ORGANISATIONS The Citizen Journey The digital age has empowered ordinary people. These people are not only more demanding, but more conscious and concerned with transparency, ethics and commitment to social justice. 3
  22. 22. 22 At this point, citizens have a vague awareness of the existence of your organisation. Their awareness may stem directly from commercial recognition of your products and/or services, or, alternatively, campaigns, sponsorships or initiatives related to your organisation centred around CSR or social innovation (Shell’s Eco Marathon, for example). The citizen interacts with the brand in some way. Often a citizen-led campaign is capitalised on and promoted by a brand, taking advantage of the energy that has been built up by citizens. Advances in digital technology have maximised the impact of these kinds of events. A deeper connection is made through a relationship with the consumer. In some cases the brand acts as a platform which generates economic value for the consumer (a SAP consultant, for example, or a property owner advertising through AirBnB). A more continuous co-creation relationship might also come into existence, especially if the brand is able to develop a deep, emotional connection with the consumer through the values the organisation represents or stands for. The citizen journey is much less linear than either of the first two, and involves three steps: awareness, transaction (the purchase of goods and services or the hiring of a new employee) and, finally, a ‘happy marriage’ or amicable break up if things do go wrong. We need citizens to arrive at three different touchpoints throughout their journey: value, connect and share. Value Connect Share The societal value generated by a company in terms of impact and innovation, will often result in a more robust, long-lasting relationship with the consumer.
  23. 23. 23HUMAN CENTRED ORGANISATIONS Active or passive citizen? Throughout the consumer journey, organisations are tasked with improving the ‘suffering citizen’s’ user experience. The citizen’s journey, conversely, is more concerned with civil society (the individuals behind the collective) who act autonomously to transform society. Wikipedia, Bitcoin, Kiva Microloans and Khan Academy are four examples of organisations which rely on citizens to take the lead in roles previously reserved for governmental bodies or large corporations. The citizen has control over how they choose to interact with these initiatives: confront, collaborate or stay neutral? We recommend they act as sponsors or patrons, an active member of the community. Social footprint Our focus should not be on the centralisation of CSR, but rather on the pursuit of ‘social enterprise’ in an economic environment where consumption is no longer growing at the same rate, and where digitally empowered consumers and citizens are more inclined to reward companies that work to create ‘shared value’ within society. Michael Porter, who came up with the concept of ‘shareholder first’, eventually gave up on the idea. The crisis of 2008 made concepts like ‘conscious capitalism’, popularised by John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods, all the more relevant. Clearly, capitalism is under review.
  24. 24. 24 Social co-creation and co-participation Human centred organisations understand that society is not only the main benefactor of innovation, but also of co-creation. To innovate is to commit to an idea that complicates your own life and to be willing to put your job at risk to make it a reality. In the digital world, change is occurring rapidly and the life cycles of digital technology and products aimed at helping us understand the digital world have shortened. Digitalisation is disruptive and capable of transforming entire industries. Consequently, we must find a way to balance efficiency (the mantra of the 20th century) with innovation (that of the 21st). To inspire innovation there is no better tool than engagement. An internal culture that supports and motivates those within it, and prioritises transparency, will produce innovative employees and open itself up to the most innovative suppliers, partners and consumers. Co-creation success stories (Local Motors, MyStarbucksIdea, and the Procter Gamble Connect Develop platform, for example) demonstrate the advantages of remote connection and collaboration. . Modules of shared value HCOs are based on collaborative ecosystems, open to companies, institutions, organisations, collectives and individuals that, together, form a new distributed business model that offers an alternative, more efficient and sustainable service to society. This model transforms the organisation into a platform on which others can generate wealth. Platforms allow for a more robust and rapid growth, and a greater fluidity. If we were to go one step further and assess the value contributed to society as a whole, any company that creates a demand for goods is beneficial to society. Those goods and services designed to help eradicate the great evils that plague us (hunger, disease…) may appear
  25. 25. 25HUMAN CENTRED ORGANISATIONS more attractive in the eyes of the ordinary citizen, however a product designed merely to entertain also fulfills an important function within society. Digital giants like Apple, Uber and AirBnB stand out for having created ecosystems of value. For instance, Apple has created millions of jobs for developers through its Store, and the average car or property owner can now, effectively, run their own business through AirBnB or Uber. Similarly, Amazon has opened up the digital market to small merchants through its marketplace, Google has created an advertising platform capable of generating income for countless numbers of publishers, and SAP has done the same for consultants.
  26. 26. 26 Business Valuation Why put people at the centre? One could argue that the survival of the organisation itself is at stake. Digital titans of industry are more willing to enter into traditional spaces, and countless small, technologically innovative startups are well prepared to compete within very specific niches. It seems that only through putting people at the centre, will organisations be able to compete with these up and comers. That said, if those you need to convince are more on skeptical side, we advise you to stay objective when attempting to justify investing in such initiatives. Even those who still think that the aim of an organisation is to maximise shareholder value, can be convinced by a demonstration of the positive impact that putting people first will have on their bottom line. What are some of the direct and indirect benefits human centred organisations are having in terms of brand generation and company value? Below, we are able to analyse some of the, already visible, direct and indirect benefits of human- centricity. These include brand generation and an increase in the value of the company produced by both the impact of the other two factors, as well as the positive valuation that the market is already achieving with these strategies. Benefits of the HCO • Reputation • Shared value • Strength • Conscious consumer • Open innovation • Correlation between share price and SRI policies (socially responsible investment) • Increased demand for IRS funds • Awareness investor • Trust • More sales (customised experience, catalogue of products, more sales...) • Commercial efficiency • Customer Lifetime Value • Talent • Innovation and Knowledge • Productivity (commitment and linkage) • Efficiency (productivity) • Multipliers associated with digitisation • Specific indicators with impact on share value (customer base, ARPU, EBITDA...) • Trust • Key figures associated with HR • Higher return on funds Best Place to Work • Proximity • Linkage • Contribution to the society • Liability as an employer Brand Consumer Journey Co-Worker Journey Citizen Journey
  27. 27. HUMAN CENTRED ORGANISATIONS 27 They create products and services that are relevant to the market and society. As they identify business needs and opportunities, they try to evaluate whether or not these products and services will have a long-term positive impact on society, as with Ford’s Model T or, more recently, Apple’s iPhone. They create seamless experiences for customers, taking ergonomics into consideration. They understand their client and work hard to surprise and satisfy them at every point of contact, whether or not this results in any immediate commercial return. They are obsessed with their co-workers, a harmonious working environment and the entire employee ecosystem. In other words, they look to provide employees with the ability to align their personal interests with those of their co-workers. They care about values and demonstrate this through concrete acts of commitment. They establish a leadership style and culture which encourages brand loyalty and commitment to the workplace. They know that commitment is the driving force behind innovation, and that innovation is the only strategy worth pursuing in the digital age. They work to instill intrinsic motivation through personal development and increased autonomy. They give back to their workers in the best way possible. They work to eradicate bureaucracy and work past systems and procedures. They are concerned with maintaining the minimum amount of structures and procedures necessary, providing training for employees and trusting their workforce with more responsibility and increased autonomy. The carrot is more effective than the stick. They’re concerned with the long-term and the future of our planet. They are capable of establishing a balance between ethics and economics. They know that, in the long term, their investment will be rewarded by the market. What makes an organisation human centered? Human centred organisations prevent shareholders from feeling overwhelmed by structure. They’re obsessed with the journeys taken by their customers, employees, partners, and those taken by “citizens”, and so they’re better able to create shared value for the company shareholders as well as society at large.
  28. 28. 28 Digital transformation: the path to HCO Good Rebel’s Framework for digital transformation Now we can see how HCOs and the digital revolution go hand-in-hand, and for this reason we understand that digital transformation not only prepares organisations to compete within an increasingly digitised environment, but also that it is the most effective way of putting people at the centre. DATA - TECHNOLOGY - CREATIVITY Consumer Intelligence Customer Experience Business Performance Engagement Experience Digital Competencies Leadership Agile Organisation Social Footprint Open Innovation Co-creation People-Centred Business Models Consumer Journey Human Centred Organisations Co-Worker Journey Citizen Journey
  29. 29. 29HUMAN CENTRED ORGANISATIONS If we take a closer look at the most influential organisations, as well as those companies with the highest market capitalisation, we observe that they all share the same focus on digital innovation, and each is strong in at least one of the journeys discussed previously. The market rewards them, not only for being the companies with the greatest capacity to generate income in the immediate future, but also because their way of working guarantees innovation and rapid adaptation to consumer demand. The relationship between digitilisation and the human centred organisation is particularly evident when we look at the consumer’s journey. We can only fully understand the consumer through the endless amounts of data they leave behind across the channels they interact with. Unique, enjoyable and personalised experiences can only be achieved through the channels where the consumer spends the majority of their time; maximisation of business value is only achievable if we take complete advantage of the digital environment. That’s why, when we think of HCOs, Amazon is always the first one that comes to mind. This is due not only to the predictive models of recommendation they have in place, but also the unbeatable experience that comes from that initial recommendation and ends with a simplified, one-click purchase, fast delivery and customer service that is hard to beat. When we aspire to human-centricity, we are all just trying to be a bit more like Amazon. The employee is at the centre of the co- worker journey and it doesn’t really matter whether the business is traditional or one going through a digital transformation - putting the employee first benefits everyone. That said, the more digitally advanced organisations will have an easier time prioritising the employee as the culture that has been put in place, and the digital tools already at their disposal, will help facilitate the implementation of this kind of system. Google is relevant both in terms of its brand, its approach to the workplace, and the way it relies on its employees as a source of innovative
  30. 30. 30 thought. When modern organisations propose modernisation and transformation of the working culture, they’re looking to achieve something similar and it’s obvious that digitalisation plays a big role in all of this. It’s also evident that the current phenomenon of the ‘empowered citizen’ would not have been possible without social networks and digital communication. And so it seems difficult to imagine that any initiative aimed at citizens as a whole could be carried out without involving these channels. The digital environment facilitates the analysis of the citizen’s digital footprint, while providing us with the tools necessary to stimulate co-creation or to launch citizen-led campaigns. However, in the end we return to the organisations who, by employing a culture of openness and innovation, are developing some of the most outstanding initiatives in their field. It is clear that the companies that are having the greatest impact on our society are those who are most digitally inclined, such as Uber, AirBnB and Tesla. We can conclude that the outcome of digital transformation is a kind of company culture where digitisation and innovative thought predominate, and also that this kind of culture is achieved only through putting people - the consumer, the collaborator, the citizen - at the centre of all we do.
