The Art of Possible

"How Lean Helped Me Travel To Egypt with Just $500" was an interesting blog post from Sunil Kaushik.   I really admired his way of applying quality tools in real-life scenarios such as for his own vacation.

Sharing economy is evolving rapidly in today's world and is also fairly successful.   Innovative businesses such as Uber, AirBnB etc., are revolutionizing the business world with their disruptive ideas that is working well in action.  Newer and unimagined opportunities exist for such innovative companies.

Due to the evolution of high speed network connectivity (mainly internet) and modern high performance consumer devices,  say for example an Apple iPhone, digital have emerged as a fundamental force that can disrupt the business world.  Social, Mobile, Analytics and Cloud (SMAC) are the foundational digital forces that enable innovations and newer business practices for both businesses and individuals.  Ability to effectively utilize digital in the business world can work wonders.

Sunil could creatively blend the sharing economy with digital and apply quality tools to create and execute a lean travel plan to Egypt for just $500.  His experience is something that looks like a 'not-so-feasible' plan.  The beauty is that he could successfully execute it.  Through this blog, Sunil has demonstrated the Art of Possible.   This was mainly possible by leveraging digital, sharing economy and, importantly, the various quality tools.

The bigger challenge for quality professionals now will be to fine tune existing quality tools or discover newer ones for the digital world of tomorrow.  What do you say?
