The New Orleans Conference - Las Vegas Edition "The Other Guys Tool Box. Survival Through Diversification" Steve Igo, CP June 29, 2017
In today's rapidly evolving world, the key to survival and success lies in diversification and adaptability. The video "Survival Through Diversification: The Other Guys' Toolbox" by Steve Igo delves into this concept by exploring cross-industry collaborations and innovations.
🚀 The program aims to shed light on the "other guys' toolkit," emphasizing how diversification and knowledge across various sectors can be a game-changer.
🏭 One of the standout examples is how Exxon Mobil's everyday lab hardware is repurposed by The Other Guys Tool Box for testing cardiovascular devices. This showcases the incredible potential of applying technologies and methodologies from one industry to solve problems in another.
🌕 NASA and Exxon Mobil are also joining forces to develop drilling techniques for extracting ice from the moon's craters. This could potentially provide a water and oxygen supply for future space missions, highlighting the limitless possibilities of cross-industry collaboration.
🌍 The video also discusses the use of shape memory polymer in preventing sand from entering oil well pipes, a solution that is as innovative as it is effective.
💡 Another fascinating case is the modification of a robotic arm initially used in the medical field to image spacesuits. This example underscores the adaptability of technology across different sectors.
🚀 For NASA, the challenge of protecting astronauts from deep space ionizing radiation is significant. The program aims to bring together professionals from diverse fields, including heart surgeons, astronauts, and oil and gas engineers, to tackle such challenges.
🌍 The video also touches upon Norway's strategic decision to diversify from the oil and gas industry into the medical sector, underlining the importance of adapting to changing economic landscapes.
This video serves as an eye-opener for professionals and students alike, encouraging them to think outside the box and embrace diversification as a strategy for survival and growth.
