Structure follows strategy… or does it?

Do not compare yourself with your peers, it is the recipe for disaster. Company complacency is the biggest threat to companies today. Being happy and contempt with what you’ve got creates a company blind spot so big that no one will see the real threat before it’s taken a significant chunk of the market, if not all

The most important part of any IT project? Not IT

It’s many times more difficult to change an organization and the people than it is to get approval to spend millions on ‘IT or digital transformation projects’ with a promising return on investment. It’s just a shame that so many really ignore that the return on investment only comes when people are regarded as the key critical success factor

When your most valuable asset becomes your weakest link

Hiring top talent is a two-way commitment; the organization must be able to cope with the high-flyer and the new talent should be able to navigate the culture. This does not always happen and the results are devastating. Both parties must work for a way out to succeed

What happens in organizations without strategy?

Digital transformation; just another organizational change program

Imagine if you had to reinvent your current company’s business model from scratch. I’ll bet that you would see a lot of opportunities for improvements and a lot of processes, products (and people) that you wouldn’t need in a digitized new version of your company

Dealing with pluralistic ignorance

When members of a crowd believes something is wrong, but don’t say anything because they think everybody else believe it’s right, they’re pluralistic ignorant. This is damaging to the way groups behave and adversely affects the effectiveness and success of organizations

Why organizations will not change

The business history books are filled with stories of companies failing big time - and for no apparent reason. I believe the main reason is the power of informal, internal networks

How Society Kills Our Creativity

"Madrid based animators, Daniel Martinez Lara and Rafa Cano Mendez created this touching 7 minute short film that perfectly demonstrates what happens when we let external influences dim our inner light, and how it affects the lives of those we love most. Enjoy! And go grab some tissues, you might need ’em!"

If you don’t understand me, how can you lead me?

Years ago, I took part in a crisis management program aiming to enable us understand the un-understandable (i.e. why anyone in this world would ever kill deliberately)

The learnings - I find - are very useful to understand how to lead people, too

If you’re the smartest person in the room, you are in the wrong room

Hiring people more than capable of taking your position takes courage – it’s not easy allowing a new, smart person into the inner circle of your daily routines but you must if you want to move on

...but if you want to stand a chance to be regarded as the next hire, smarter than your boss, you’d need to evolve and move on, too
