WYZE Projects* recently conducted an interview with me to discuss my personal view on the current state of digitalisation projects. We talked about
- The reason, why some digitalisation initiatives struggle to keep traction
- The difference of digitalisation to classic business process initiatives
- Where to find “digital leadership” within organisations
The interview was conducted in German. Click here for the German (native) and English (translation) version of the interview.
* WYZE is a consultancy for for particularly demanding and knowledge-intensive topics in the fields of transformation, change, positioning, and marketing.
I’ve been careful with promoting business related stuff on my personal blog. I will make an exception in this case because I have finally succeeded in collecting my past year’s experience in one place: the Digital Workplace Gold Dust. And I am proud of it (*BAM there, I said it)
It’s the follow up of Infocentric’s Digital Workplace Report and focuses on a fully practice based angle on the subject of Advanced Intranets and Digital Workplaces. It’s full of models, conceptual perspectives and references that I and we have used frequently and refined over the past years. I didn’t do this completely by myself of course. A lot of inspiration and input comes from my work for clients, the collaboration with valued colleagues and companions in the field.
Maybe you would enjoy the read 🙂 You can request a copy of the Digital Workplace Gold Dust on Infocentric’s website…
In the June issue of the German LEAD digital (published by the Verlag Werben & Verkaufen, a subsidiary of the Sueddeutsche Verlag) you can find an article on the basics of social business. The essay contains references to my thinking around the change in leadership, work and collaboration culture as well as the challenges for change management and adaption.
The article was published in German. A link to the PDF can be found here or in the “publications” section of my site.
Special thanks to LEAD digital for the approval to publish this on my website!
In case you’re interested in my (German) contribution to Microsoft’s publication on “Das Neue Arbeiten” (The New Way of Working). You can download each section (mine is called “Der finnische IT-Dienstleister Tieto ist in vielen Branchen zu Hause”) as an audio version and the entire book in PDF format here.

As a contributing author I take myself the freedom to advertise the NoFear Community on leadership for a new generation of talent and high performers 🙂 I truly believe (and experience already) that the future generations (Digital Natives, Digital Cowboys or Millenials) expect a new way of being led (rather than managed). It’s definitely worth to browse through the community and have a look at the executive video interviews – and in case you’re looking for a summer afternoon read go for the No Fear book (available on amazon.com and all e-book readers).
more or less just for testing a PDF post
