As I get deeper into entrepreneur research, here is the journey of my pivots… am launching SCIC’s soon and hope to hear/get projects from all here or at least can discuss it.
A large public limited company
Way back in early 1990’s, when technology was still picking up, I ended up understanding an entire process of shares department who would spend huge effort on data entry, compilation only to create more issues. Vigorously doing data entry too, I realized that everything is solvable if we put proper logic to it..
Understood the process and created a small tool which helped perform 50% of tasks being done by team of 8
All cornered me and asked me, what was my intent? am I replacing jobs?
I mentioned, I just wanted to be a good programmer… nothing beyond it..
One of the Director was of course pleasantly shocked and mentioned, he liked my style of working..
Where the above case study fits in Startup Collaborative Innovation Center?
I left the job as there was no point breaking heads with the CIO’s on technology debates or trying to create unrest within a team with threat of loosing opportunities, however may be that was the trigger point for me to realize that I am an entrepreneur in spirit and heart from age 9, when am trying to sell my own skills to my fellow students and take tutions.
Does the case fit in Startup Collaborative Innovation Center?
The answer is Yes as like me, there would whole lot of young blood trying to identify problems in process, getting irritated with day-to-day routine well laid out process, one who wishes to bring a small change, to make a big difference in cycle time…
