Following the trends in perpetuity.
TyphoonTalks is a podcast that analyzes current and emerging business trends and themes. Hosted by Typhoon's staff, the podcasts share insights gained by the firm's consultants during client engagements in the Financial Services; Energy & Utilities; Health & Life Sciences; Telecommunications, Media and Technology; and Retail, Leisure & Transportation sectors.
Typhoon's activities in the market identify trends that, when exploited, allow firms to create a strong, sustainable competitive advantage. For incumbent players, failing to recognize and exploit these emergent themes can have a major impact on their market share, profitability and in some cases, the future of the business. No CEO wants to see their firm suffer from its own 'Kodak moment'.

Introducing Business Process Maturity with Arthur Li
A company's competitive position and the success of its internal projects may be at risk due to immature business processes. BPM is an assessment tool, which addresses these issues by evaluating capability and maturity of a company's business processes. It guides enterprises on the path of continuous improvement, helping identify defects in daily procedures and increase operational efficiencies. In this podcast, Arthur Li, a senior manager at Typhoon Consulting, gives us an extensive overview of the key elements of the BPM Framework and introduces Typhoon's revised step-by-step methodology "Match-Fit".
Relevance of Lean Six Sigma in the Digital Age
Lean Six Sigma is a popular methodology introduced by Motorola in 1980-s and successfully applied by Toyota to develop and implement quality improvements and waste management in its critical production processes. For long time, lean Six Sigma was argued to be a quality control tool used solely in manufacturing, rather than business processes in general.
In today's podcast together with Arthur Li we explore how relevant Lean Six Sigma framework still is in light of the shift to digital transformation?
AI In Smart Cities With Dr Andy Chun
How can we build smart cities with AI?
More than half of the world's population currently lives in cities, and this number is projected to increase to 4.4bn in the next 10 years. However, such rapid urbanisation will add further pressure on current issues with traffic, environment, and healthcare.
In this Podcast we are joined by Dr Andy Chun - a leading Artificial Intelligence pioneer in Hong Kong - to discuss how AI can help cities minimise the burden of constant and inevitable expansion. We also talk about potential challenges that smart cities are likely to face when adopting AI and Machine learning solutions for their daily operations.
