HOW TO INNOVATE FOR GROWTH

By: Sivuyile S. Sesi. With Internative Digital @756Writing

Business is about doing what people like, with timetable, prototyping and curating, you do that making your business to growth.

You can do that following the days of the week for an example. For that having a theme for each day or period. Like on Monday is the start of the week and for that day you do what is found to be in energy or mood of the employees in your company. This can finely motivate and pick their mood up each day well set building continuos momentum. This way you can be efficient and effective. For an example you can start with hardwork early at first during the day and week. In that if you follow you can have coordinated, aligned and if you are closely listening and observing to your company and its environment activities you can have or find synergy of the week to month to year. This way in your planning you will be able to set programmes and assign well on schedules and projects. Each date of the day can have company values and motives attached to it. With this you will gain technical vision and have foresight strategy.

From days of the week as you observe how your system activities work you can take note and collect data that you can use to eliminate processes, technologies, etc that dont work or are less efficient and consider time saving, more productive ways. And add ways that are more productive. This way you can also find other better new ways and emerging solutions realised along the way that you can use, then growing your business.

For Nguni people for an example its like our names system or network which if you follow you find it saves a lot of what we find valuable to keep. With following what is there on personal names of people even professional help you can find a process on which to start with to the last. Their names state what they are for in our lives. If you follow its true happening you can find a person that can help you for what you want and its that kind of person you must connect to or ask from at a moment. Its truth happen whether you know it or not. It take consciousness to notice it. This can help you work well with your employees and appeal from your customers. They relate with it. So in this you can cultural, design, radical innovate.

When doing business an example of work that this can useful on is if you are an online information or articles curator. Setting your articles in a way that follow each other in an interesting, appealing, or logical way from time to time. It has to make sense to your audience. This is a way to give customer experience. So its important to do your customer network research, observe, take the data and analyse your customers interests and use the information you find to serve them accordingly. From there and forward you can keep changing, improving and upgrading the functioning of your business to achieve the required results or output. With this that is how you start noticing other new ways you did not see or find before that can add value to your business more than you thought before. So analysing this way is good to stay open.

An analyses tool that you can use for this is Computational Thinking Analyses. You can plan the Computational Thinking concepts: the Decomposition, Algorithms, Pattern Recognition and Obstructing. As Each year is different with new clients and new challenges and new ideas, getting employees you can use this tool for growth patterns. With Computational Thinking concept you will be able to be discoverer and be innovative.

With this you can see what clients buy, what interest them, how do they explore your website, able to notice what is the time to time changes. With it you can do data analysis for your website, blog, email marketing, newsletter, etc. This way you can stay relevant and keep up with your audience. This way you can know what kind of employees to invest on, be able to keep up with resources and work condition or environment you want. This is a way of doing customized services. In return for treating your customers special they can see what you do for them for that they can reward you.

So look at the ways you do business to set and grow your enterprize. This way you can solve global challenges with more people and communities benefiting. In all that is how corporations are able to bring industry innovation.

SIVUYILE SESI GETS AN INTERNET STORY AWARD.

By: Sivuyile S. Sesi @756Writing

On the 17 March 2016 I became a runner up winner for the Western Cape Government Internet Competition Written Story Catergory Award. When I entered for the competition in December 2015 they liked my story in for personal and career development through business entrepreneurship regardless of starting from zero capital. I was given an award certificate and a Proline Tablet PC by Mr Alan Winde Minister of Economic Opportunities. This is the second competition I win around Cape Town, another one I entered my digital business on a business plan competition.

THAT WAS IT.

Thinking of those years, in 2006/7, while I was doing my first year at University of the Western Cape, through volunteering to Students In Free Enterprise (SIFE UWC) and Youth
Initiative for Entrepreneurship and Leadership Development (YIELD) – www.yield.org.za, by Prof Linda de Vries of Marketing would give me her office to do my studies. Also she gave me a job both those years as an Office Assistant helping keep her office organised. I feel to just cant forget the quality of SIFE UWC and YIELD with Prof as our Faculty Adviser and Mr Khutso Ramontja in charge. No wonder they won the 2005 SIFE National Competition. On 2006 SIFE National Competition with me as SIFE UWC Projects Manager our team won the third position. I still think we were the best. Its just that ” #WeAllWin” thats what their slogan say now with the new Enactus as in 2012 they changed SIFE to that new name. With us while it was SIFE the slogan was “Changing the world”. On the 2006 SIFE National Competition as SIFE UWC were on the finals the judges asked us a technology question. I answered the question for our team. The SIFE University of KwaZulu Natal team that showed us live on stage how they struggling with technos,
they took time to set up their technology to do their presentation, they became winners. And SIFE University of Pretoria became 2nd position. Our team Faculty
Adviser Prof Linda de Vries was selected to coach SIFE UKZN, as winners they were to represent South Africa on the 2006 SIFE International Competition I think in Paris. Eish 2008 doctor’s orders stopping me for a while on my studies.

OFFICIAL OPENING OF THE MINISTRY OF ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES.

3 March 2016

The purpose of the Ministry of Economic Opportunities is to give advice and support to stakeholders in the economy that promote growth and jobs provision. Our role is specially client-facing, requiring daily interaction with entrepreneurs and business people.

To strengthen our involvement with the economy, we set ourselves the aim of becoming the most easy accessible government ministry office in the whole South Africa, and took practical steps to attain this.

On the 3rd of March 2016, the ministry officially opened its doors at a new location- 140 Long Street, Cape Town. What was once free government space has been turned into an open, vibrant office that welcomes residents with an appointment, as well as walk-ins, on a daily basis.

To make sure residents feel welcome at our offices, we have also signed up to participate in a new initiative called First Thurday (www.first-thursdays.co.za/commercial-highlights).

Every first Thursday of the month, we will stay open until 9pm, along with other shops, galleries and attractions in the CBD, as part of an exciting programme so as to encourage the citizens to explore their city.

“Residence with ideas to grow our economy and create jobs are encouraged to visit us to share their ideas on these dedicated open evenings.

My team and I will be on hand to welcome them.”- Alan Winde On these evenings, the ministry space will also be made a platform for innovators and produces to showcase their South African made goods…

“We are looking forward to playing our part by providing an inviting space for engagement on our economy, and to welcoming you to the most accessible government ministry in South Africa”- Alan Winde

BELOW IS THE STORY I SUBMITTED FOR THE COMPETITION TITLED: I UTILIZE INTERNET NOT JUST FOR PROFIT BUT FOR PROGRESS. NOW I AM ADVANCED.

In life internet keeps me preoccupied and busy. With it I have improved and supplemented my qualifications with other free courses and good articles. It has kept me informed and updated with what is happening in my field of study and business. With internet I have learnt to make my own work. I am sharing all that on the internet with others. With internet I feel useful and good. Easily entering for entrepreneurship competition, bursaries, global challenges, try to sell my work and other opportunities. Every day, I find reasons to focus and stay out of the streets, do something constructive to improve my life and share great moments with others, that is wonderful. It has groomed me.

As I started an online Communications and Marketing business from nothing internet has been the oil that keeps it going because its cheap. In my community you get free internet access.

As I have finished my degree and struggling for money to look for jobs internet has been keeping my career going that is how I have even gained confidence in entrepreneurship. Trying to perfect my skills and gaining experience with what I have, I have established an online portfolio, blogs, websites, logos and pages using free internet resources for that I have something to market myself. With that my brand for a start have been gaining public awareness and trust.

With the internet its cheaper to keep my business going. It has brought hope for my business and career. Its easy to get fresh knowledge or information and do research. It has opened multiple options for me. I know what I will focus on as soon as I get means to academically further my studies in Software or Application Development.

I am about people and profits through the internet and technology. On the internet I have went through personal and career development programmes like the 30 Days and 7 Days Forgiveness Challenge by Desmond Tutu and Mpho Tutu, 21 Days Meditation Experience by Oprah Winfrey and Deepak, Google Computational Thinking Course, Google Digital Marketing Course, etc.

I have written over 70 online articles with about 400 constructive comments. With those articles now I am preparing to write books and create my own online course, sell it to make sales for my business.
