4 Reasons Why Mobile Innovation Demands A Mobile Mindset

Mobile Innovation Demands Mobile Mindset by Kaan Turnali

If designed, developed, and delivered effectively, mobility solutions provide unparalleled convenience, speed, and ease of use. However, having a mobile mindset is a prerequisite if we want to drive growth and profitability.

In its simplest and purest form, I define “mobile mindset” as a framework that enables organizations of all sizes to unleash the power of mobile technology by using innovative mobility solutions and without adversely disrupting our existing business or our customer’s user experience.

Here are the four tenets of the mobile mindset that should apply to all facets of user interactions and be embraced by everyone involved—from developers to senior leadership. Read more

Design Thinking Is About Integrated Solutions

The digital universe provides countless possibilities for innovation. Whether we stretch the boundaries of mobility and cloud solutions with mobile device apps, IoT devices, or real-time enterprise applications, integrated solutions are critical to delivering a complete user experience (UX), which is one of the core principles of design thinking.

Success comes from designing integrated solutions in which each part completes the system in whole—not designing fragmented pieces that make up a stack.

The integration principle of design thinking represents the opportunity to connect what would be otherwise restricted user interfaces (UI), disconnected touch points, and a fragmented UX.

Integrating these elements means the delivery of cohesive solutions, products, or services. This approach is about discovering value in hidden corners, as much as it is delivering what may be taken for granted or appear obvious in everyday human interactions. Read more

I am excited to return after another long break

It feels great to be back and writing again following another break—this time longer than the last one. I can’t believe that it has been eight months since I last published. I am grateful that the break—albeit uninvited —allowed me to devote personal attention to what matters in my life.

I have to confess that each time I endure these unplanned gaps as “life” throws a curve ball, it masses ideas of endless possibilities and uncultivated creativity. Unlike in the desert, the lack of rain does not appear to diminish my renewal.

Best part about returning is the anticipation of exhilaration, which follows these intervals. I simply miss the pure joy of it, the smell of the paper, the reflection of the ink, and—most important—the intellectual challenge that I seek in it beyond the mere words.

To me, writing—thought leadership in the greater sense—is more than just words on paper but a pursuit of exploration, innovation, and storytelling. lot of new projects are on the horizon, including several new series on digital transformation, executive mobile analytics, and design thinking.

As I wrote in my Forbes piece, titled “3 Reasons Why Thought Leadership Matters,” for those who follow and stay committed, the process of molding ideas can sometimes be as intense and focused as the development of new products and services.”

I feel re-energized and ready to run again!
