By combining the best of both worlds, industrial tech will make leaps forward, but the emerging system is still fragile.

    Scaling Software Movements

    Scaling Software Movements

    In episode 41 of the Augmented podcast (@Augmentedpod), the topic is: Scaling Software Movements. Our guest is Hilarie Koplow-McAdams(@HilarieKM), Venture Partner at NEA (@nea).
    Augmented is a podcast for industrial leaders, process engineers and shop floor operators, hosted by futurist Trond Arne Undheim (@trondau), presented by Tulip (@tulipinterfaces), the frontline operations platform, where Hilarie as of this year serves as a Board of Director member, and is also associated with MFG.works, the industrial upskilling community launched at the World Economic Forum. 
    In this conversation, we talk about What Hilarie has learned from 35 years in the software industry, reflecting on her path, which includes taking Oracle from $100M to $11B revenue, via building a user movement of small business owners and their accountants at Intuit, integrating all those lessons with the simplicity that Salesforce brought to the customer relationship channeling the move towards trusted cloud computing, to Tulip, which enables the co-design of products and services in frontline operations, starting with the manufacturing shop floor.
    Trond's takeaway: At hyper scale, growing software companies is not just about sales numbers and strategies, it is about channeling social movements. Perhaps it takes an outsider to see it and run with it? Hilarie has, through 35 years of trailblazing product and sales leadership, shown that truly understanding features, markets, users, and governance, is not just about following Silicon Valley personality cults. Rather, mega scale follows from tapping into big movements in the market, movements that are social in nature, delivering value to people who become believers and tell their friends, colleagues, and family about it. But although sales, at the core, may be social, it is also about being disciplined about market entry decisions and following through with a total solution.

Now that the industry is taking on board the promise of such technologies, it also has to document its effects. The impact on digital technologies should be positive although it will not be without frustrations for those who want quick wins.

    Manufacturing Training in Massachusetts

    Manufacturing Training in Massachusetts

    Augmented reveals the stories behind the new era of industrial operations, where technology will restore the agility of frontline workers. 
    In episode 46 of the podcast, the topic is: Manufacturing Training in Massachusetts. Our guest is John Killam, President, MassMEP.
    In this conversation, we talk about the important role of manufacturing in Massachusetts, fostering the next generation manufacturers, manufacturing workforce trends and actions, including how to recruit talent to the region and to our manufacturing firms.
    Augmented is a podcast for leaders, hosted by futurist Trond Arne Undheim (@trondau), presented by Tulip.co, the frontline operations platform, and associated with MFG.works, the manufacturing upskilling community launched at the World Economic Forum.

    MassMEP (@MassMEP): https://massmep.org/ John Killam (@JKillamMEP): https://www.linkedin.com/in/johnkillammassmep/Trond's takeaway: Manufacturing is surprisingly important in Massachusetts, which most people don't necessarily see as a manufacturing state because it is a high cost state that competes mostly in high-end, technology infused manufacturing of specialty parts. However, with industry 4.0 that kind of manufacturing is on the rise, so the issue will only become more and more key--and the workforce will need to grow to keep up with the demand. In that, there is opportunity for young people. And new manufacturing jobs can be exciting jobs, too. In fact, most of them are.

    Digital Lean

    Digital Lean

    Augmented reveals the stories behind the new era of industrial operations, where technology will restore the agility of frontline workers. 
    In episode 36 of the podcast, the topic is: Digital Lean. Our guest is Edward Atkins, Head of Customer Success, Tulip
    In this conversation, we talk about achieving customer success with classic Lean Operations and beyond. We explore performance transparency, how operators can produce parts tracking procedures digitally, creating quality gates through inspection applications and being conscious about quality measurement. What am I making? At what quality? We also go into more complex things like work material flow, Kanban loops and taking inventory and how no-code is an exponential uplift since you no longer are burdened by logging and can collect as much information as you want.

    After listening to this episode, check out Tulip's and Edward Atkins' profile on social media:
    Tulip (@tulipinterfaces):: Tulip.co Edward Atkins: https://www.linkedin.com/in/edward-atkins-77022213/ Augmented is a podcast for industry leaders and operators, hosted by futurist Trond Arne Undheim, presented by Tulip.co, the frontline operations platform, and associated with MFG.works, the industrial upskilling community launched at the World Economic Forum.

    My takeaway is that implementing digital lean on a client site especially enabling improvements to be done near 100 percent by the clients themselves is now possible with the leading frontline operations software and is game changing for industrial performance.
