If we take a look at work environment, it considered capable to utilize digital technology in daily lives through employee self-service experience system. Indonesian people have good awareness of digital technology growth. It should be better used optimally in work environment.

Intranet software is software that allows companies to build a private, secure network that can only be accessed by internal employee (Cornerstone, 2017). An intranet serves as the single focal point to access internal and external resources, and enables employees to communicate, collaborate, and share documents and other information (Cornerstone, 2017). A company’s intranet makes it easy to share news and corporate information, align teams, and reinforce culture. The benefit of intranet goes beyond knowledge sharing to improve workforce productivity, employee engagement, and promoting corporate culture.

Here are some prediction things that are going to happen with intranet software in the future:

1.    More comfortable with Cloud-based intranets

           According to Forbes, $47.7 billion dollars will be spent on Cloud Services in the next year. In the next four years of economic growth that amount is expected to double. Meanwhile according research to Informatica, over 76% of enterprise has some of business strategy that incorporates cloud service into their future plan. From those organizations, 74% are expecting to increase spending by greater than 20%.

2.    The need for mobile access continues and long lives mobile Internet.

           Mobile Internet is demanding attention of the world’s population. The Internet of things will continue to grow and shape for future. Data from statistachart on the table below, we can predict positive progress with mobile subscriptions in the future.

The Product Market Fit Pyramid

Product market fit means being in a good market with a product that can satisfy that market. Product market fit is consistent with that build a product that creates significant customer value or product meets real customer needs (Olsen, 2015). Product market fit is another way of saying profitable over the essential aspects of the idea, which can stand on its own.

On hierarchical model decomposes product market into five key components. Product is the top section, consisting three layers. The market is the bottom section of the pyramid, consisting of two layers. Product-market fit is between the top and bottom sections of the pyramid. Olsen (2015) created framework, it is Product-Market Fit Pyramid.

The Lean Product Process will guide us through two critical thinking; problem space and solution space (Olsen, 2015). Solution space is kind of any product design that we create, such as: mock-ups, wireframe, or prototype. Solution space is representation of product that will be used by customers. Solution space focuses on “how” the product would accomplish customer need. Problem space is where all customer needs that we would like to deliver live. Problem space focuses on “what” describes the benefits that product should give the customer, what product will accomplish for the user. The how (solution space) is the way in which the product delivers the (problem space) to the customer (Olsen, 2015).

As Dave McClure of 500 Startups said, “Customers don’t care about solution. They care about their problems.” Keeping problem space and solution space separate and iteratively test and improve hypotheses is the best way to achieve product-market fit. Critics of user-cantered design, we can see at slogan that “Apple doesn’t talk to customer”. At Apple’s 1997 Worldwide Developers Conference, Steve Jobs share enlightened perspective that is consistent with the Lean Product Process, he said:

You’ve got to start with the customer experience and work backwards to the technology. You can’t start with the technology and try to figure out where you’re going to try to sell it. As we have tried to come up with strategy and vision for Apple, it started with: “What incredible benefits can give to the customers? Not starting with: “Let’s sit down with engineers and figure out what awesome technology we have and then how we’re going to market that. And I think that’s the right path to take.

They assume no matter how challenging the constraints of a given problem, at least one potential solution is better than the existing alternatives.

4. Experimentalism

Design thinkers pose a hypotheses and explore constraints in creative ways that proceed in entirely new directions.

Innovation

Ok, I’m not working at Google, but let me share something good insight. For the 1st time Google was founded, they call them as a startup company in 1998. Now, Google is an example of innovation company whose Sergey Brin & Larry Page as Google Founder. Innovation is not just about science (piece of knowledge). Innovation is not about invention. Innovation is a great and useful idea that will be used in society (marketplace) & embrace uncertainty. Learning only occurs when we step away from the familiar & accept the uncertainty that new experience. Innovation means out of the box and moving into uncertainty. As we know, for example feature Google Search which is simple design but powerful, feasible, reliable, and useful. Have you ever imagine, how many people access information via browser by using Google Search feature per second?

Here are some notions of innovation from Google that we can learn :

  1. Innovation; not instant perfection.
  2. Share everything you can.
  3. You’re brilliant, we are hiring.
  4. A license to pursue dreams.
  5. Ideas comes from everywhere.
  6. Don’t politic – use data.
  7. Creativity loves restraint.
  8. Worry about usage and users, not money.
  9. Don’t kill projects – morphs them.
