https://i2.wp.com/www.kindlerthorpe.com/hublot_logo-larger.jpgThere are lots of things about your person written in the internet. I would like to ask you some new questions.

Please ask.

First of all I would like to make a visual test. What do you see on this picture?

I can see a tree.

Don’t you see more? Take your time, you have to consider it more precisely.
I can’t see more.

Sometimes there is more there, than you think you see.

As we are a month inside the second half of 2015, I thought it would be a good time to look at some of the technology trends that are in motion, and will have more of an influence as we enter 2016.

1: SMAC becomes SMACT

Social Mobile, Analytics and Cloud (SMAC) has existed for a number of years in enterprise applications. Internet of Things (IoT) has accelerated as an enabler in technology, and hence will begin to be added to SMAC to create SMACT. I introduced this concept in one of my first posts here. And they need each other to succeed and/or progress. As more and more devices in IoT come online, SMAC demand will increase. And IoT will add value to SMAC, as it will spurn new technology directions that can utilize SMAC. The A in SMAC will be affect more than others, as with new…

I am simply putting down the exact words as described by Eric Ries as it is the best.

Eric Ries has described the principles as below;

  1. Entrepreneurs are Everywhere.

You don’t have to work in a garage to be in a startup. The concept of entrepreneurship includes anyone who works within my definition of a startup: a human institution designed to create new products and services under conditions of extreme uncertainty. That means entrepreneurs are everywhere and the Lean Startup approach can work in any size company, even a very large enterprise, in any sector or industry.

2. Entrepreneurship is Management.

A startup is an institution, not just a product, and so it requires a new kind of management specifically geared to its context of extreme uncertainty. In fact, as I will argue later, I believe “entrepreneur” should be considered a will argue later, I believe “entrepreneur” should be considered…

When I asked Dave Packard the question what his secret of success was, he replied “Think about the other guy.”

I feel that this principle is one of the most important things making Silicon Valley successful. There is experimental evidence that this is true. Anna Lee Saxenian did an excellent dissertation at MIT where she studied Silicon Valley and Route 128 (the area around Boston and MIT) from the end of World War 2 till the year 2000. This was a natural experiment because both areas competed in high tech with the same customers. During this period Silicon Valley flourished and Route 128 did not. Saxenian’s reason is cooperation and collective support. Support others even when you are in different companies. Better to rely on speed than secrecy. In other words, ask for help and give help rather than trying…

Current and relevant management knowledge regarding  motivation and engagement – really widely backed by science – and therefore part of our #mustread #mustsee list.

Daniel Pink crushes the outdated myth that motivation could be generated by money or payment equivalent. A bonus would just work in the case of physical labour but not in the environment of knowledge work. If you want motivation and engagement in the workforce today there’s a few cornerstones to look at, and according to Pink’s talk those are self-direction, mastery and purpose.

Dieses Video und das dazugehörige Buch “DRIVE” sind inzwischen Management Klassiker geworden und verdienen deshalb einen Eintrag in unserer Rubrik “Was wir lesen” – und somit weiterempfehlen.

How Can You Spend Time Wisely?

We all wonder where the hours go. There’s a good reason for that — we’re absolutely terrible at remembering how we really spend our time.

Via What the Most Successful People Do at Work: A Short Guide to Making Over Your Career:

Hunting through data from the American Time Use Survey, conducted annually by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and other time diary projects, I came to the inescapable conclusion that how we think we spend our time has little to do with reality. We wildly overestimate time devoted to housework. We underestimate time devoted to sleep. We write whole treatises glorifying a golden age that never was; American women, for instance, spend more time with their children now than their grandmothers did in the 1950s and 60s.

Nowhere is this truer than with work. Are you a workaholic spending 75+ hours at…
