Example text

Twenty-one seconds into the commercial, Greg, an adult in a “Susie” uniform, was walking toward his next delivery with a Susie truck in the background when his phone beeped and he got a message. He did a quick, albeit disgruntled, U-turn to handle the inventory problem back at the vending machine. At 23 seconds, Susie’s loyal employee arrived at the warehouse on his dirty bike, disheveled and worn. “Susie! ” Susie cut him off, “Already filled,” she said, verifying it on her tablet. From this simple act on Susie’s part we can deduce that she has added a USA Technologies telemetry system (telemetry involves tracking merchandise and locating the nearest pickup and drop-off points for any given truck or delivery mechanism in the supply chain) and ePort cashless payment system (an electronic wireless cash card system) to her evergrowing business.

In just under a total of 60 seconds (two 30-second commercials) we watched Susie’s business explode into a complex network of machines and human interactions. Going beyond Verizon’s marketing, the cute kids, and the “feel good,” small-town appeal of the commercial, we found a business case for mobile business encapsulated within a wonderful business model. The first commercial was a 30-second microcosm of any executive’s dreams of business expansion in the digital age. 1 The First 30 Seconds Within 5 seconds Susie went from a bored little girl sitting at a quiet lemonade stand to a girl with a dream.

Frankly, very few businesses maintain a real-time view of potential impacts, and in the real world, even the best analysts in our field would have a hard time keeping up with Susie! 15 Catastrophic Impact and Loss *** Just to be clear, the evolution of impacts demonstrated by Susie’s Lemonade Stand could be replaced with the real-world impact of another kind of organization, say, the manufacturer of a life-saving vaccine! *** While Orange County has never suffered from impacts resulting from a lemonade stand disaster, imagine the impacts to America if all of the same technologies used to formulate, package, and deliver the lemonade were instead being used to formulate, package, and deliver a vaccine during a health crisis.
