Business equals people plus technology

In his book, What Technology Wants, Kevin Kelly claims that “We are co-evolving with our technology, and so we have become deeply dependent on it. If all technology—every last knife and spear—were to be removed from this planet, our species would not last more than a few months. We are now symbiotic with technology”.

People and technology are profoundly symbiotic. We invent, create, and connect technologies in the hope of doing more, faster, and cheaper. Technology in turn changes, amplifies and enhances the way we invent, create and connect. We can’t make sense of technological progress in isolation, and we can’t think critically about how humanity and society are evolving without considering technology. The combined advancement of both has mammoth implications for, and impacts on, people, planet and of course, profit.

This reality presents organisations like yours with an unprecedented challenge. Coupled with that challenge is an extraordinary opportunity for proactive and conscious leadership to transform the way we work, and the impact we have on the world around us. This movement is widely referred to as DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION.

Beyond Binary works with its clients to unpack the impacts of the Fourth Industrial Revolution on their businesses by plotting their journey in terms of five distinct categories: Digital Denialism, Digital Enhancement, Digital Transformation, Digital Speculation, and Digital Disruption.

We do this work in the form of keynote presentations, workshops and facilitation, and consulting.
