Our mission is to empower you to use bigger thinking strategies to generate better ideas and to build, grow and scale solutions that make a significant impact in the areas that matter. This is bigger than technology. I am Kishau Rogers, a serial tech entrepreneur and the Founder of technology ventures such as Websmith Inc and TimeStudy. I have over twenty-three years of industry experience, specializing in using computer science and systems thinking principles to influence how we take great ideas from conceptualization to commercialization.
I started my career as a programmer while earning my Computer Science degree. I’ve often stated that the first half of my career was spent trying to master technology and the last half trying to master people. My biggest career challenges were rarely technical and often required developing a better understanding of people and systems.
I’ve spent over two decades coding & building software solutions and what I’ve learned is that the most successful projects are those that allowed more time for thinking, discovery, and learning than time spent executing, building and reacting. I’ve learned that one of the biggest failure points for technology projects is due to a lack of clarity regarding “why” or “when” technology is necessary and lack of clarity regarding the ultimate purpose to be served.
WHAT WE OFFER
bigThinking is a resource center and collaborative innovation venture which promotes the use of thinking principles as a foundation for building solutions that matter. We offer a toolbox of self-service resources and are also available to lead workshops and presentations. Our innovation framework follows a 5-stage approach to turning great ideas into transformational solutions. We use thinking principles to lay the foundation for good ideas to thrive. We believe that we can make positive impact globally by reimagining how to use technology as a tool for solving wicked problems.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Good ideas aren’t nurtured on a schedule. They are developed, fine-tuned, and evolved through actual real-world experience. The bigThinking project was launched to develop a community of 1 Million Thinkers committed to the journey for successfully delivering ideas that make a significant impact.
