In an interesting post for GigaOm, Signe argues that the best robot designs render robotics invisible. So the Roomba is not really a robot, though it is. Same for the Nest thermostat. In other words, we are rapidly automating function – not identity.
BTW, the same is true for strategic thinking. We want to make our strategic vision automatic, not our lives. To do this, we need to build strategic vision into our routines to the point where the routines are automatic and the strategic vision deeply embedded in our values.
