Hard to believe that the quote used for the title of this blog was said by Benjamin Franklin more than 200 years ago. Very relevant to today’s business environment, it’s just one of the many quotes that you can find relating to change.
Is Success Based on Change?
More than 2,000 years ago, Greek philosopher Socrates said “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new!” Fast forward to the 20th century. Winston Churchill said “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.” In the words of John F. Kennedy, “Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.”
What are all these quotes saying? That change is an integral part of both growth and success. Without change, we stagnate and die. And let’s face it – no matter how much we may fear change, the world-shattering changes of the last few weeks from the COVID 19 pandemic is forcing us all to readdress and change the way we do business.
Is Mobideo Geared to Change?
At Mobideo, we’ve definitely not finished changing! Last month - in addition to changes that will enable us to continue support our customers during the COVID-19 pandemic - we changed our branding and launched a new website. Some may claim that this is a strange time make such changes. But for us, it was the culmination of extensive brainstorming and investment of resources to create a wealth of important and relevant material for asset-intensive industries, from oil and gas, chemicals and power to aviation, marine and life sciences.
We’ve outlined our 12 use cases - ranging from Pandemic Resilience and STOs to Capital Projects and Offsite Vendor Surveillance - each of which describe the various challenges faced by owner-operators, and the solutions and benefits provided by the Mobideo Platform. Our new company video is a great initiation to the importance of the changes achieved through digitalization and connecting the industrial workforce; and our latest eBook: Are You Ready for Your Next Turnaround? discusses the biggest challenge in any turnaround - losing control of the scope, scheduling, workers, contractors, bottlenecks and safety that ultimately leads to inevitable delays in timetables and overruns in budget.
