Couldn’t we re-organize education to discover talent within each individual? Not only based on results but on a connection to the inner force of the child. Couldn’t we add an angle of personal development for the education personnel? It doesn’t make sense to me that already troubled teenagers are pushed into following someone else’s beliefs and forced into a profession that wouldn’t be a fit. Couldn’t we take a pause at certain stages of the child’s development and take the time to understand the core values of the person before driving them towards a career of our interest?
At the end of 2014 one of our clients from the financial industry launched a project – the idea was to offer a unified interface to manage a user’s investment portfolio. And from that moment onward, we started discovering the amount of nonsense and outdated ways of working in the financial industry.
My client wanted to clear this non-sense and finally offer what clients have been expecting for years – a singular interface for investments of financial providers and products (Life Insurance, Bonds, Stock Market, …). Furthermore, since knowledge is power, they wanted to educate the client to have more control on his investment strategy. I understood that this could be the silver arrow for the financial industry if we could execute it well.
Time passed and we discovered the inconsistency in this industry that generates billions per year but relies on decades old solution or fully outsourced average IT department. Aggregating information from all stakeholders became a nightmare, often talking to an entire organization to merely get a step or two ahead.
