Pretty silly, I know. Until you realize that you can’t get everyone to the meeting until next Wednesday at 3:00. And to do so will cause you to disrupt yours and others schedules significantly. If only there was a way to get everyone together right now so that we can decide on this critical point… Certainly telephones are not going to provide the documentary value and group participation of a meeting. The Marketplace Interface, operating within the three marketplace modules of the Preliminary Specification, combines elements of both meetings and telephones. The ability to have them quickly, documented and with the full participation of the necessary individuals will be the capabilities brought about by this new interface.
Everyone is tired of the extensive number of meetings that they need to attend daily or weekly. If only they could attend some of them virtually, which is what they would be able to do with the Marketplace Interface. Cutting down on the time in meetings, which would allow for, wait for it, more meetings! Which is going to be one of the consequences of implementing the Preliminary Specification in the dynamic, innovative and profitable oil and gas producers. With high levels of automation in the transaction areas being conducted by the service providers. Their use of specialization, the division of labor and automation as their key competitive advantage we have stated here many times before that the types of work that people will be doing is going to change. We will be conducting different tasks that include leadership, issue resolution, creative, collaboration, research, ideas, design, planning, thinking, and generally making the computers work for us. Or in other words, many more meetings.
If we believe that our work will continue to remain the same in terms of how we interact with people then I think we are going to need a lot more people. Either that or new methods of communication are going to be needed. The endless meetings will need to end. Maybe some of the attendees can instead review a video replay of the Marketplace Interface recording at twice the speed. Other methods of communication are going to be needed to be introduced into the way that we work if we are going to do the work of the humans and leave the work that is better suited to the computers, to the computers. Our volumes of work will increase. The types of work will change. And the importance of that work will also increase.
An ERP system that doesn’t introduce a new means in which to deal with these issues and opportunities is not doing its job. It is providing for yesterday’s ERP system needs. Our work is changing and the types of interfaces that we will use also needs to be changing. The Marketplace Interface is one of the opportunities that we will be using in the Preliminary Specification. It is based on the Open Wonderland framework developed by the former Sun Microsystems. Here is a video of the technology.
The Preliminary Specification and user community provides the oil and gas producer with the most dynamic, innovative, profitable and successful means of oil and gas operations. People, Ideas & Objects Revenue Model specifies the means in which investors can participate in these user defined software developments. Users are welcome to join me here.
