information governance (IG) efforts, and has become the most common business software application and the backbone of business communications today. In addition, the authors provided details to support their position by providing 2013 survey results from 2,400 corporate e-mail users from a global perspective. The results indicated that two-thirds of the respondents stated that e-mail was their favorite form of business communication which surpassed not only social media but also telephone and in-person contact.

Q1: With this detail in mind, briefly state why the e-Mail has become a critical component for IG implementation?

Companies routinely invest in technology, and too often feel they get routine results. Technology’s promise is
not simply to automate processes, but to open routes to new ways of doing business.
To better understand how businesses succeed or fail in using digital technology to improve business performance, MIT Sloan Management Review and Capgemini Consulting conducted a survey in 2013 that
garnered responses from 1,559 executives and managers in a wide range of industries. Their responses clearly
show that managers believe in the ability of technology to bring transformative change to business. But they
also feel frustrated with how hard it is to get great results from new technology.
This report (as well as the survey) focuses on digital transformation, which we define as the use of new digital
technologies (social media, mobile, analytics or embedded devices) to enable major business improvements
(such as enhancing customer experience, streamlining operations or creating new business models).
The key findings from the survey are:
According to 78% of respondents, achieving digital transformation will become critical to their organizations within the next two years.
However, 63% said the pace of technology change in their organization is too slow.
The most frequently cited obstacle to digital transformation was lack of urgency.
Only 38% of respondents said that digital transformation was a permanent fixture on their CEO’s agenda.
Where CEOs have shared their vision for digital transformation, 93% of employees feel that it is the right
thing for the organization. But, a mere 36% of CEOs have shared such a vision.
Previous research with executives by the MIT Center for Digital Business and Capgemini Consulting
showed that many companies struggle to gain transformational effects from new digital technologies, but
also that a significant minority of companies have developed the management and technology skills to realize the potential of new technologies. Our current survey deepens this research by getting frontline
perspectives as well as high-level ones, from staff to board member. (See About the Research, p.3.) It shows
that frontline corporate employees believe they face a strategic imperative to successfully adopt emerging
new technologies. Almost no organization is sheltered from the competitive disruption wrought by of the
widespread adoption of digital technologies.
But the survey also shows that organizations are finding ways forward by taking steps such as developing
business cases for technology adoption, creating cross-department authority for digital initiatives and realigning incentives to include metrics relevant to digital transformation. This report will delve into the
challenges of digital transformation and how companies are meeting them to achieve competitive advantage.

Digital
Technology
Introduction E very company wants the technology it uses to transform its business. Executives see the
potential for using digital technologies to achieve transformation, but they’re unclear on
how to get the results. They look at high-profile examples of companies using technology to galvanize their business, and wonder what they need to do to follow suit. Brewing Up Change at Starbucks
One company that has succeeded is Starbucks. In 2009, after dismal performance cut the company’s
stock price in half, Starbucks looked to digital to help re-engage with customers. It created a vice
president of digital ventures, hiring Adam Brotman to fill the post. His first move was to offer free
Wi-Fi in Starbucks stores, along with a digital landing page with a variety of digital media choices,
including free content from publications like The Economist. It sounds simple, but as Brotman says,
we were not just doing something smart around Wi-Fi, but we were doing something innovative
around how we were connecting with customers.
Brotman is now chief digital officer at Starbucks, where he and Curt Garner, Starbucks’ chief information officer, have formed a close working relationship, restructuring their teams so that they
collaborate from the very start of projects. Last year, they cut 10 seconds from every card or mobile
phone transaction, reducing time-in-line by 900,000 hours. Starbucks is adding mobile payment
processing to its stores, and is processing 3 million mobile payments per week. Soon, customers will
order directly from their mobile phones.
Using social media, mobile and other technologies to change customer relationships, operations
and the business model has helped Starbucks re-engage with customers and boosted overall performance. Its stock price has also bounced back up from roughly $8 in 2009 to nearly $73 in July 2013. Digital Immaturity: A Widespread Problem M any companies want Starbucks-like results, but most are far from achieving them, according to
our survey (see About the Research). At the end of the survey, respondents answered a set of
questions about their companies’ digital maturity. Using an index of digital maturity developed by the
sloanreview.mit.edu About the
Research The survey uses a definition of
digital transformation that
came from research done by
MIT’s Center for Digital Business (CDB) and Capgemini
Consulting, which focused on
how digital transformation
plays out at traditional large
companies, those having more
than $1 billion in revenues. To
complement that research,
which involved interviews with
executives at 450 large companies, MIT Sloan Management
Review and Capgemini
Consulting conducted a broadbased online survey. It was
completed by 1,559 people in
106 countries (the five with the
most respondents were:
United States, 37%; India, 11%;
Canada, 5%; United Kingdom,
4%; Australia, Brazil and Mexico, 3% each). They represent
companies and organizations
across the business spectrum
— nearly half (47%) work at
companies with less than $250
million in revenues, 10% work
at mid-sized companies with
between $250 million and $500
million in revenues, 9% at companies with $500 million to $1
billion in sales, and 33% work
at organizations with more
than $1 billion in revenues, including 11% at companies with
more than $20 billion in sales.
Respondents span the gamut
of functions, from CEO to staff.
The survey asked the
respondents’ views on a
number of topics related to
achieving digital transformation. Respondents also took
a separate digital maturity
assessment, based on prior
CDB research, to determine
their digital maturity. Organizations were categorized
either as Digirati (mature at
both technology adoption and
management), Fashionistas
(early adopters of technology
but without effective management skills), Conservatives
(slow to adopt technologies
but effective at managing
them) or Beginners (possessing neither advanced
technology or the ability to
manage it). Embracing Digital Technology • MIT SLOAN MANAGEMENT REVIEW 3 R e s e a r c h R e p o r t E m b r a c i n g D i g i ta l T e c h n o l o g y MIT Center for Digital Business and Capgemini
Consulting, we found that only 15% of respondents
were in the most mature category alongside Starbucks. Sixty-five percent of respondents are in
organizations that rank as least mature — the category the index refers to as Beginners (see Figure 1).
The world is going through a kind of digital transformation as everything — customers and equipment
alike — becomes connected. The connected world
creates a digital imperative for companies. They must
succeed in creating transformation through technology, or they’ll face destruction at the hands of their
competitors that do.
The Digital Imperative

willpower to get major transformative effects from
new technology. Executives need to lead the process Figure 1 Rated01

Conservative companies deliberately hang back
when it comes to new technologies, although
their management has a vision and effective
structures in place to govern technology adoption.
Fashionista companies are very aggressive in
adopting new technologies, but do not coordinate
well across departments or have an effective vision in place for dealing with digital business.
Digirati companies have executives that share a
strong vision for what new technologies bring, invest in and manage digital technologies quickly
and effectively, and gain the most value from digital transformation. 4 MIT SLOAN MANAGEMENT REVIEW • Capgemini Consulting and make sure they’re managing and coordinating
across the company. Employees know that technology
matters: a full 78% of respondents said achieving digital transformation will become critical to their
organizations within the next two years. Less than 5%
of respondents say digital transformation will never
become important for their organizations. Meanwhile, 81% said their organizations were already
trying to achieve digital transformation (see Figure 2).
The big thing is, technology change is happening so rapidly that every industry is being affected
by this, said George Westerman, research scientist
at MIT’s Center for Digital Business, and one of the
investigators leading the Center’s Digital Transformation Research.
Previous research by Capgemini Consulting and
MIT’s Center for Digital Business found that companies that invest in important new technologies and
manage them well are more profitable than their industry peers. Respondents to our survey corroborate
this view — they overwhelmingly believe that failure
to effectively conduct digital transformation will
harm their company’s ability to compete.
Of those working at organizations where digital
transformation is a permanent fixture on the executive agenda, and a core strategic consideration, 81%
believe their companies will be somewhat or much
more competitive in two years. That’s a stark contrast from those at organizations where leadership
is not focused on digital transformation — only
18% believe their companies will increase their
competitiveness, and nearly half (46%) project a
grim, less competitive future.
Despite growing acknowledgment of a digital
imperative, few companies are responding. Only
38% of respondents said that digital transformation
was a permanent fixture on their CEO’s agenda. Of
the rest, 65% of respondents thought it needed to be
more important than it currently is.

services type of scenario. Technology has always been
important to our business, but it really is becoming
much more strategic, especially today, when you’re
seeing the emergence of new technologies. You’re seeing a transformation of how consumers are engaging
with technologies.
The rise of the tech-savvy, connected consumer
across all facets of society changes the expectations
consumers have of companies, regardless of their
business, said Curt Garner, the chief information
officer at Starbucks. IT and digital is pervasive in
people’s lives now. So the advice I would give somebody starting it now is, think of yourself like a
consumer technology company.
How do consumer technology companies act?
One key point is, they update frequently. For nontech companies, this translates into adapting by
streamlining product cycles. Quicker product cycles
often lead to adding some features later. Adding features into new versions of products can become a
sloanreview.mit.edu strategic move for non-tech companies, as well.
Responding effectively and quickly to new technologies affects the bottom line, and ultimately business
survival. Effective management of new technologies is
already creating winners and losers in measurable
ways, like market share and profits — both areas where

struggle to get clear business benefits from new

technology.
Even companies where leadership has demonstrated it can effectively leverage technology can
run into challenges with new digital technologies.
Today’s emerging technologies, like social media,
mobile, analytics and embedded devices, demand
different mindsets and skill sets than previous waves
of transformative technology.
There is no one factor that impedes digital transformation. Lack of vision or sense of urgency plagued
many companies, culture at others, and organizational constraints problems at still others. Our
sloanreview.mit.edu research highlighted nine specific hurdles in the
broad areas of leadership, institutional obstacles and
execution that companies need to overcome to
achieve digital transformation.
Leadership: Defining the Agenda
Many managers feel no urgency to achieve digital transformation. This may be because so few leaders offer a
vision and a road map for digital transformation,
leaving managers with no motivation for achieving it.
Lack of urgency Complacency affects more companies than any other organizational barrier cited
in our survey, with almost 40% of respondents saying that lack of urgency/no sense of burning
platform is the biggest single obstacle to digital
transformation. One survey respondent working in
higher education said The organization has a long
(70 years) history of success … the need to change is
not clear to some members of the old guard (see
Figure 5).
The survey shows a clear split in perception of
urgency between the top managers at companies
and those below them. In fact, the further down the
organizational ladder one goes, the less satisfied
workers are with the pace of digital transformation
at their organizations. A third of C-level executives
and board members think the pace of change is
about right, and another 10% think it is fast, or even
very fast. CEOs are particularly bullish — 53%
think the pace is right, fast, or very fast, the highest
of any category (see Figure 6, p.8).
CEOs might know something their colleagues
don’t, of course. Or it could be that as one gets into
the trenches of transformation, conditions change.
Only 25% of managers think the pace is right, and a
mere 22% of staff agree. Of these, product development staff are the most positive — just over 40% say
the pace is very fast, fast or just right. Management
was guilty of complacency, ignorance of modern
technology, said one respondent. Clueless management, commented another.
But employee skepticism can also impede pace —
even when leadership is on board to promote digital
transformation. There is too much hype, said one
CEO. I can’t push harder because of all the hype and
the overselling from suppliers. I lose my credibility if

The vision thing Digital transformation starts with a vision from top leadership. Where senior
leaders had shared their vision, it had huge buy-in
— fully 93% of employees agreed that digital transformation was the right thing right now for their
companies to do, and 73% strongly agreed.

technology-based transformation is how they’re putting the leadership frameworks in place.

Veganism today

In terms of our diets, without a proper diet we are putting the body at risk for infections, diseases, and forms of cancer. Eating is much than igniting our taste buds, but we are providing fuel for organs and tissues within our bodies. The number of vegans in the U.S. increased by 600 percent between 2014 and 2017 (Green Ralph, 2018). After reading several articles on eating a plant-based diet, there are major advantages such as lower risk of cancer, increased bone health, protection against chronic diseases, and improved digestion. Below is a chart comparing the articles accuracy, honesty, and fairness.

After reading the articles, one article really stood out to me displaying unethical communication. The article Vegans and vegetarians may think they’re ‘eating healthy’. They’re not showed several examples of exaggerated claims and communication abuse. For example, the author states that as a physician scientist who has dedicated the past 50 years of his professional career to studying vitamin B-12, he knows that a deficiency can have serious and sometimes devastating health repercussions

SO245 – Social impact of technology

Assignment 8 – Five-Paragraph Essay on Technology Evolution

29th July 2019

Comparative Analysis of Different Hypothesis Regarding the Evolution of Technology

Julius Jeppe

Historically, anthropologists and sociologists have long debated the evolution of our society and the impact that technology has on it. To better understand the development of our civilizations, we will be observing the perspectives of different individuals. Although Lenski, White, and Toffler share similar opinions on the relationship between technological advancement and culture, they had different views on how these technological advances evolved. Gerhard Lenski suggested that for humans to advance and evolve, information is singularly important. Lenski also suggested that technological advancement’s motivity has been the evolution of civilization. Simultaneously, Leslie White thought that channeling energy is the primary objective and goal of any culture. In contrast, Alvin Toffler suggested that we are suffering from information overload due to the concept of future shock While all three individuals make excellent points in their convictions, careful analysis is required to determine what remains true in our society today. Let’s consider their perspectives as they relate to the nature of technological progress.

Profound sociologist, Gerhard Lenski (1924-2015) maintained that technological advancement and civilization share pervasive characteristics. Moreover, Lenski proposed that access to information is the key to human evolution and advancement. In his hypothesis, Lenski drew a close correlation between communication, technological advancement, and the progress thereof. According to Lenski, four stages of human communication exist. Stage one introduces biological communication; whereas, genes are passed from one generation to the next. Stage two refers to sentience or awareness of our surroundings and the ability to use our senses such as touch and feeling, perceptions and different experiences. Stage three demands our capability to understand and apply logic to our daily lives. Stage 4 suggests that we have reached a level where we are capable of communicating using symbols and advanced language skills. In addition, Lenski added that there are also varying levels of technological advancement, which can be broken down as follows. First, physical labor is required at the hunter-gatherer level to secure food production. Next, horticulture and agriculture are useful in establishing food surplus and social order. Finally, the industrial revolution replaces food-based economies that establish a new kind of social class inequality and new processes of production. According to Lenski’s perspective, the more knowledge we have about how to acquire and utilize the natural resources, the greater our ability for technological progress and advances.

In contrast, anthropologist Leslie Alvin White (1900 – 1975) also supported the idea of cultural evolution. Although he had similar ideas, he also had a different perspective and approach to the concept of human development. Moreover, White proposed that the function of any civilization is the means to control energy. Furthermore, White established different stages of human development. First, human muscle power supplies energy, followed by, that of the harnessing of a domesticated animal such as the horse for transport. Then, food energy is supplied by the engagement of agriculture and additional energy by harnessing natural resources such as coal, gas, and oil. Finally, although optimistic, nuclear energy can be harnessed for use as an energy source. A formula that remains useful today and developed by White is used to calculate the efficiency of energy produced by measuring the amount of energy consumed. The formula would be applied as follows:

P = E * T

In the formula above, E is the measure of energy consumed, while, T is the measure of the efficiency of technical factors that utilize said energy. P is the result we get when we calculate these two values.

Like Lenski and White, journalist and social critic, Alvin Toffler (1928 – 2016) offers an entirely different point of view than that of his counterparts. Although he also supported technological progress, his point of view was different in many ways. Coining the phrase and concept of future shock, Toffler suggests that too much change in too short a period of time can lead to a large portion of individuals finding it overwhelming. Moreover, Toffler indicated that many individuals feel disconnected and that we suffer from information overload, another term that Toffler coined. Toffler identifies multiple stages of social advancement. First, the Neolithic period or New Stone Age. Beginning with the invention of agriculture, Toffler drew a parallel between the agricultural revolution and moving from barbarity to civilization. Next, the industrial stage beginning in England with the industrial revolution. Toffler suggests that important evolutions alongside this period include machine tools and steam engines. Finally, Toffler brings us to the post-industrial stage. Starting in the second half of the twentieth century, it includes automated manufacturing, robotics, and technologies such as the computer. During these years, the need for manual labor has decreased while the need for intelligent thinking has increased.

While anthropologists, sociologists, and other deep thinkers of our time debate over the impact that technology has on our cultural practices, society, and civilization as a whole, it is important to remain circumspect and find respect for all opinions. Comparatively, all three individuals thought that society had made technological advances in leaps and bounds, all three individuals shared the belief that as the creation and acceptance of technology increased in our culture, so did human civilization. However, Toffler maintained that some advances are being pursued at a speed that seems to be too fast for society to feel comfortable with; thus, overwhelming society into future shock which he believes is responsible for most of our current social problems. Furthermore, White found that controlling and harnessing energy would be the best course of action to advance and develop our society. Although I can appreciate the theories of all the individuals discussed above, I believe that Gerhard Lenski offers the most useful insights into the evolution of technology. He demonstrated his views of the stages of technological development from nomadic properties to the industrial revolution. Furthermore, he also explained the steps of communication that assisted in the process of technological evolution.

You are asked to work on a new project with a group of

co-workers; everyone in the group has already been notified about being assigned to this group and the project. Effective group communication is necessary for this project. You know who these people are, but you have not had much contact with them since they all work in different branches of the company, in different cities. Your supervisor has indicated:
You have the group communication role of initiator.
Most of the work can be done by emailing each other in order to coordinate tasks and provide and seek information.
The group can also use the company’s teleconference phone system for monthly updates when synchronous communication is needed.
Using the first three steps of the communication decision-making tool, DECIDE, write an email message (at least 2-3 paragraphs) to the group focusing on the following:
Initiating group communication so everyone effectively communicates with each other.
Initiate group communication about group communication norms for dealing with group communication roles and for dealing with effective interpersonal communication while using these communication technologies. (Specifically discuss tact, courtesy, and language adaptation that would be acceptable in workplace group communication.
Communication about what the group might need to know about possible advantages of communicating by the channels of email and in a teleconference.
Communication about what the group might need to know about possible disadvantages of communicating by the channels of email and in a teleconference.
Start discussions about possible interference with these two channels of communication and suggest how the group might reduce or eliminate these.

Part II. An Essay Question (50 points)
Write a reflective essay regarding your group communication decision-making utilized in the above email you wrote for the case study task. The essay answer should be at least three to four paragraphs and should include responses to the following questions:
What are the decisions you made for DECIDE: Step 1. Define goal, Step 2. Evaluate receiver / situation and Step 3. Create message before you wrote the email message to the group in the case study?
In addition to these decisions, what are questions you needed to ask yourself to ensure effective group communication by practicing anticipatory metacommunication, adaptive metacommunication, and reflective metacommunication?
Conclude your essay by explaining how the decisions you made and the metacommunication you practiced helped you write a message that should reduce the possibility of poor group communication among the group members.

concepts of interpersonal communication are present. Without revealing all of the details of the conversation, describe how the following affected the interaction.

  • The context – time, place, kind of conversation (work talk, socializing with a friend, party, etc.), and the history you share with the other person.
  • The verbal communication – word choice, language styles, and tone used during the exchange. How did the verbal aspects affect the conversation?
  • The non-verbal communication – body movements, talking with hands or not, eye contact, positioning to one another. How did the non-verbal aspects affect the conversation?

After you describe these three features, discuss how you think context, verbal and non-verbal communication worked together to produce a conversation and shared meaning between you and the other person. What do you now notice about the complexity of communication in what may have appeared to be a simple conversation?

I have an example of written communication that I had to pass onto my previous leadership on the status of a Military Working Dog. We call it the 5 W’s. Tell me, is it clear and concise enough to comprehend if you weren’t in the Military Working Dog realm?

Here are the 5 W’s on MWD Chengo.

BLUF: Hydrotherapy for Military Working Dog (MWD) Chengo to improve left

hind limb muscle mass for a duration of 3 weeks then will be re-evaluated by

CPT Schwarten (Vet). Possibility that MWD Chengo and Handler SPC Allison

will be redeployed if MWD Chengo does not show signs of improvement.

Who: MWD Chengo and Handler SPC Allison

What: Conduct Hydrotherapy for a duration of 3 weeks to try to improve MWD

Chengo muscle mass in left hind limb.

When: Will begin 11 May 2018 in the afternoon if Vet is available. If not,

it will start 14 May 2018.

Where: BLD 631, Kennel compound in MWD pool at Camp Bondsteel.

Why/How: MWD Chengo will start with performing only laps around the pool,

due to Vet waiting for the hydrotherapy protocol from Dog Center Europe

MWD Chengo’s joints and build muscle mass.

Background Information: MWD Chengo has a history of osteoarthritis in the

left hip and has been seen for this issue for about three years. While here

in Kosovo MWD Chengo has had radiographs, ura sounds and weekly vet visits

to measure MWD Chengo’s progress. Hydrotherapy is the last option the Vet

here in Kosovo has to try to improve MWD Chengo’s muscle mass.

Plan of Action: If MWD Chengo shows improvement by 25-50% in three weeks

then Vet and Military Working Dog Team will continue the program. If there

is no improvement within the three weeks Vet recommends redeployment of the

team. Kennel Master back at home station is tracking and is already

planning on getting an aernate to replace MWD Chengo and Handler SPC

Allison if MWD Chengo shows no signs of improvement. Kennel Master will be

kept up to date on hydrotherapy, and replacement of the dog team should

happen as soon as the Vet determines MWD Chengo unfit to continue operations

on Camp Bondsteel.

The original 5 W’s was checked over by so many others before sending it up, because I have never done a briefing such as this. This is a final product of muiple corrections and aggravation. How do you think effective communication complies with written and verbal communication as well?
