Event Report: #WEF19 #Davos2019 Globalization 4.0 Under Fire As Global Leaders Fail The Populace
"While noble in intent, the forum drives deep discussion among its members. The research into political, societal, economic, and technology issues have raised public awareness. Despite the number of world leaders, business executives, non-profit pioneers, and other change agents, few major initiatives move from concept to commercialization and impact the general populace. Hence, many skeptics continue to criticize the WEF efforts."

With business stakeholders firmly at the wheel, such efficiency and credibility are more easily achieved than through an alignment effort that has been a dismal failure since the days of manual typewriters, hi-fis, black & white television, and rotary telephones."

McKinsey: time to rethink Agile in complex digital environments
"In a recent analysis of Agile companies, Federico Berruti, Geet Chandratre, and Zaid Rab, all with McKinsey, state there are many complications when attempting to apply Agile methodologies to digital settings, from immature technology to the fact that "with thousands of processes involving tens of thousands of employees, organizations find it difficult to build workable road maps for large-scale automation." Add to this the changes AI and automation bring to employees' jobs, which further gums up the works. Scrum, with its emphasis on chunking work into smaller components, scrum masters, and process ownership, also falls flat when scaling automated approaches that suck in diverse portions of the enterprise. methodology."
