Mijn nieuwe Notebook

I bought a beautiful notebook….I never want to write or draw in them really, they mostly are.. afraid to ruin them from the inside out.. This time  I decided to go right ahead and reserve this beauty for personal thoughts, notes and drawings. These are the thoughts from today.

Include employees in the process

I ran into an excellent post on reasons why in so many companies innovation programs fail. There are several basic things that need to be in order for a vision to actually embed into a company, or for a culture change to actually happen.

A future of myriad microbusinesses?

After writing about big companies and innovation, how they should change their inner structure and culture in order to keep up, I found this 1998 Harvard business review;

Despite all the recent talk of decentralized management, empowered employees, and horizontal processes, the large industrial organization continues to dominate the economy today…… but we see sign of a counterphenomenon: the disintegration of the larger corporation.

Left out on the square, looking like a hundred years old; chairs

A beautiful city, Rome, one of my absolute favorite. Gorgeous buildings, light, paintings, food. These chairs however, felt a bit off. Left out on St peter’s square for the next mass probably. But it looked liked a scene from a movie, of a desolate city, an abandoned world.

Big enterprises are you ready to innovate big?

As tech startups start to disrupt markets where enterprises ruled for decades, the need for innovation becomes bigger. Some turn to me and ask; “-Can you help us do lean customer development.” “-Can you help us think more visually.”  “-Can you help us be more like a lean startup.”  “-Can you help us be more innovative.” And although that first realization, by at least the one person that asks, that somethings need to change is a good start. It is no where enough for that company to stay on top.

The European Startup Manifesto; a visualization

Neelie Smit Kroes called out on twitter recently “Calling all millennials! Sign our #startupmanifesto”. I think we should and not just the millennials amongst us. The more people sign it, support it and the measures proposed, the more likely actual actions will be undertaken to make sure the manifest will become more than just that.

We went to Venice for a couple of days last month, a beautiful city, with visual treasures around every single corner, and there are many. I’ve posted a selection of pictures on Flick for you all to enjoy.

This iPad doodle is a little detail of a Venetian gondola.. all of them are beautifully adorned or decorated.
