Mogic thinks

With a combination of a small number of people + software + servers and robots.
We are promoting a new era of company management.
I hope to share some of the process in this section.

Sales and engineering betas.

As is usual in the world, the people who sell tend to not get along well with the people who create, such as engineers and designers.

Perhaps from the sales side of the equation, there's a sense of pride that we're working hard in the face of tough clients out there. On the other hand, on the engineer's side, if there's a mistake in the system, it's all our fault (there's nothing left to do), so we have to make sure we do it right! If there is a mistake in the system, it is all our responsibility (there is nothing left to do).

In such a situation, if the sales team or engineering team works too hard alone, a deep rift will form, and at the very least, the atmosphere of "making good products" will be lost.

I wondered how Mogic was doing and observed that sales seemed to spend more than half of their time in the office each day glued to the side of the engineers.

And about 30% of them are just laughable.

The company is being run as if this kind of thing is not so bad.

Jobs that should be done by people and jobs that should be done by machines.

As machines, or computers, continue to increase their processing power at an accelerating rate, many tasks that were previously done by people are now being left to machines for the future.

However, the most difficult problem is how and where to draw the boundary between "work that should be done by people and work that should be done by machines.

This is because as the performance of machines and the development of software to apply them continue to advance, the line between "human and machine" will move quickly, and even if we draw a line at this point, it will quickly shift.

I wish the machine would work harder to anticipate the speed at which the boundaries are moving.
