Prosper with Knowledge – that is our credo. Since our founding in 1999, Prosper with Knowledge has been a leading forum for serious discussion of the digital revolution and international foreign policy and global affairs. Prosper with Knowledge is published by PWK International Advisers, a for-profit and nonpartisan organization and coalition dedicated to improving the understanding of the digital revolution, U.S. foreign policy and international affairs through the free exchange of ideas. Our original launch led with a statement setting out an editorial vision that has since remained constant:
The editorial in Prosper with Knowledge will deal with questions of international interest today. They will cover a broad range of subjects, not only political but historical and economic, and they will be accompanied, when it is desirable, by maps and diagrams. Technical articles will explore content rich topics spanning a broad range of applied disciplines. Our articles will not represent any consensus of beliefs. They shall be competent and well informed, representing honest opinions seriously held and convincingly expressed. The interests and prosperity of our readers are always our first consideration.
Questions the C-suite Should Ask
The digital revolution is only beginning to take shape. But we do know that leaders in digital manufacturing, including some smaller players, are already gaining significant competitive advantage by harnessing the capabilities of workers, designers, managers, and suppliers, speeding the pace of innovation, lowering the costs of production and maintenance, and increasing the impact of marketing. We believe that every player should be asking five questions:
How will digital disrupt my industry in the next five to ten years, and what new ecosystems will emerge?
Where is the value for my company, and how can we maximize it?
How close is the revolution to our factory doors, and where should I make investments in infrastructure, cyber security, and partnerships?
What new capabilities, skills, and mind-sets will we need in our organization? How will we identify, recruit, and retain the right new talent?
What should we pilot now to start capturing this value?
No company has harnessed every possible digital advance, but many have begun to make real progress. One thing seems certain: in marketplaces where profit margins are thin and consumers demand ever more sophisticated products and better service, the digital thread will lead some companies to great success while slow-moving competitors fall further behind.
