We worked closely with one museum, who continuously chose their lowest performing type of exhibition to be set up again. I think they were perhaps too passionate and too close to the project. It’s not really surprising that we see this in the art and culture industry, but I know that this challenge goes beyond our industry.Read More
This was relatively simple, but it saved 20 hours of mind numbing work each week for that team. It wasn’t optimal, but it worked, and it allowed us to showcase quick results and gain support for increased work with automation, which is what a pilot project should be aiming for.Read More
I see myself as a bridge between the models that I build and the business. There is a huge problem where data scientists are seen as data wranglers and not communicators. They sit in the corner and build a model and then have difficulty explaining the implication or how this is actionable in a clear way to the business.Read More
The challenge for O365 adoption, is that the overwhelming parts, tend to overshadow the value part. Hence the reason I believe we need to be transparent about the obstacles and leverage various resources including change management practices to guided us successfully through the transition.Read More
In this article, Frank Wolf—from the mobile-first employee communication platform Staffbase—explores the effectiveness of Office 365, especially as it relates to employee communication and adoption. Are his arguments one-sided? Only to a degree. Are they sound? Very much so. But judge for yourself and let us know. You can also read our previous interview with Frank Wolf, in which you’ll get a good sense of his vision for the future of internal communication.Read More
Gallup found 90% of people in Western Europe are not engaged at work. If their study was conducted in the early 1800’s, during the first wave of industrialization which pushed millions of people into unrelenting factory jobs, you might expect it. It was carried out in 2017, which makes it almost unfathomable given the billions spent on culture, leadership and engagement annually.Read More
Based on a recent member request, we’ve collected this short list of recommended Typo3 partners in Germany. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but hopefully it can help as a shortcut to the marketplace.Read More
I suspect we might be reaching an inflection point in the evolution of content technology. We might be reaching the point where vendors stop pretending that servicing large web properties from a single CMS is a good idea, and instead they begin to embrace and even celebrate the idea of orchestrating content from multiple providers.Read More
There is a thing called Content Operations, and yes, it seems to be broken.
Let's take a look at this growing discipline, and discuss why it has become a priority for so many organisations.Read More
There is always a lot at stake, when you are starting a new project, and several questions often arise quite naturally. Is the team structure right? On the client side as well as on the vendor side? Have we clearly defined the project, what about the budget and scope?
In my experience, it’s often completely different questions that need answering, when embarking on a new projectRead More
My approach is based around creating disturbance in order to destabilize habits and comfort zones: the enemies of change (as I see it). Outside of habits and comfort zones is fertile ground, but there may also be fear and suffering. There can be no guarantees that stepping into fertile ground will yield resilience, but it’s more likely to get results than doing nothing. The trick is to stretch the comfort zone, by inviting reflection and growth, in small steps.Read More
The good old team meeting. Somewhere for us to talk loudly and get our way, or perhaps the place for us to sit quietly at the back and respond to those urgent emails. Yet we still attend these, the expectation that it’s good for us to meet and discuss the issues of the day or the week.Read More
Avoiding bad hires 100 percent of the time would probably be a dream come true in HR. Not to mention the teams that have to live with that person just not working out. Decades of optimizing recruitment processes have certainly gone a long way, but is it actually possible never again to hire the wrong person?Read More
Everyone is talking innovation, collaboration, intra/entrepreneurialism, agility, decentralisation of power, digitalisation, the VUCA world, but all to few realize the sort of changes we will have to make to achieve it.Read More
How often do standard change methods result in actual, deep rooted and lasting change?
According to the Gartner: 50% of change efforts are clear failures, 16% have mixed results and only the remainder are somewhat successful. If we want to create real, sustainable change, then top down classical methods for change may not work.Read More
