Oseas Ramírez

Head of Business Innovation and Solution Development

Oseas Ramírez Assad is an entrepreneur and corporate innovation expert. He started his career as a CIO for one of Jalisco’s largest newspapers at age 18. He then worked as a CTO and eventually obtained his degree as a family counselor. This eclectic background set the stage for him to become the founder of one of Mexico’s largest e-learning providers.

Oseas then obtained his MBA, studying in the United States as a Fulbright Scholar. This opened up the opportunity to join Cisco Systems, in the heart of Silicon Valley. While at Cisco, he was in charge of the development of the top 2 percent of senior managers worldwide. While in that position, he led the creation of Startup//Cisco, an internal innovation program that draws from startup innovation best practices — such as Lean Startup and Design Thinking — to help internal Cisco teams accelerate their innovation efforts. Finally, he was in charge of the co-innovation strategy for Cisco’s global network of innovation centers.

Presently, Oseas works with Fortune 500 corporate senior leaders to accelerate innovation in their organizations. He also sits on the board of his e-learning company, a boutique venture capital fund and an innovation consulting company.

By Oseas Ramírez
Whatever the lenses we choose to practice gratitude and empathy, they can be helpful to get some understanding of what others are living during this crisis. Realizing that can help put things in perspective - and it's one of many ways in which we can individually do our work to avoid letting this crisis go to waste.
Marcus Aurelius quote "It can ruin your life only if it ruins your character. Otherwise, it cannot harm you - inside or out." Never let a good crisis go to waste: Part 2 - Who do you want to become? Crises as opportunities to (re)build our character.
Never let a good crisis go to waste: Who do you want to become?
By Oseas Ramírez
One of the most tangible aspects of a crisis like the one we are living is the material damage it causes: sickness, death, lost jobs, etc. There is, however, a less tangible but also very important dimension: the net balance a crisis has on our character as individuals, and the overall impact on society as a whole stemming from this.
