MythBusters: Perpetuum Mobile or how to build the competences of the future at Discovery

Have you ever wondered if building the Perpetuum Mobile is possible? What about building such a solution within business environment? How to make this work?
I will clear your doubts and answer the above questions to bring this abstract topic closer to your business environment. We will explore the need behind understanding the DNA of the organization and why building the skills of the future is vital.
One could summarize that this speech is about Lean, Six Sigma, Theory of Constrain, Process Management, Continuous Improvement, RPA, and a few more. Probably your impression now is “boring, I’ve heard it before” or at least “not sure if that’s for me”. The key is not to focus on individual methodologies and tools but to consider the whole ecosystem that will make it fly. In other words – take your notebook and write down my recipe for building your own Perpetuum Mobile.
