Our all-hands call is scheduled for next Thursday – I’m looking forward to speaking with all of you. John Kottcamp has created a SharePoint folder with all of the thought leadership the company has produced over the last few months. In addition to the whitepapers, I hope you took a moment to review the Tahzoo Studios Creative Showcase.
One of the things I enjoy most about Tahzoo is the diversity of intellect within the company. We have many different mental models – engineering, creative, administrative, and analytical to name a few – this brings me great joy. I get to talk with all of you and see the world from a slightly different perspective. If we respect one another and bring our collective talents to our clients’ business problems, there isn’t anything we can’t accomplish.
About 10 years ago, I started following the research of the Santa Fe Institute. The following is an excerpt from the mission statement of the institute:
Searching for Order in the Complexity of Evolving Worlds
Our researchers endeavor to understand and unify the underlying, shared patterns in complex physical, biological, social, cultural, technological, and even possible astrobiological worlds. Our global research network of scholars spans borders, departments, and disciplines, unifying curious minds steeped in rigorous logical, mathematical, and computational reasoning. As we reveal the unseen mechanisms and processes that shape these evolving worlds, we seek to use this understanding to promote the well-being of humankind and of life on earth.
One of the things that struck me when I started following their research is the importance of multidisciplinary research. For those of you who don’t know, multidisciplinary research is the combination of disciplines to solve various problems. As I began thinking about creating Tahzoo and what I wanted our company to be, it was clear to me that “making millions of people, a little happier every day” was going to require a combination of expertise and talent. As I’ve said many times we are agents of change. To help our clients change, we need to bring it all together for them so that we can deliver the best experience possible for each customer.
I always have and always will see Tahzoo as a company of talented but different people who work together to make a difference. We have made a lot of progress over the last eight years, but we need to continue to evolve. During our all-hands call, I am going to outline the Tahzoo transformation to a fully integrated customer experience agency.
Let’s go be great!
