New adventures….

Mon, 03 Jun 2013 17:06:54 +0000

In sharing my decision to move on to new adventures, I’d left one question unanswered: What’s next? Well, I have joined Social Edge Consulting as a Social Business Strategist, working with clients in preparing, implementing, and delivering results with their social business strategies. The role allows me the opportunity to combine my vision for the …

Moving on….

Wed, 22 May 2013 22:37:32 +0000

After nearly 10 years, last Friday May 10th was my last working day at CSC. My final week left me somewhat drained emotionally, only heightened by the kind messages of support and best wishes I received from colleagues. Once again, thank you to all I had the opportunity to befriend, work, collaborate, share, discuss, and debate with. …

For “outside-in” thinking to really take off…

Fri, 01 Mar 2013 11:00:12 +0000

Just an observation to wrap up the week: For “outside-in” client-centric thinking to really take off, procurement processes need a major rethink! Remove the barriers. Let your partners reach you, help them help you. Time to kill off the RFP! 😉

Social Business is growing up.

Tue, 11 Dec 2012 13:38:41 +0000

Starting on a tangent… One of the beauties of the written word, particularly in digital format, is that it cannot be “worn out” in the physical sense which makes me think that overuse is the digital equivalent where we become desensitised to the significance and numb to the meaning being conveyed. At the current rate, …

Getting hands-on with online education – A Crash Course on Creativity

Fri, 07 Dec 2012 22:07:38 +0000

I’ve been following the developments in the online education space with increasing interest over the last year or so, with the available options and choice growing seemingly by the day. The likes of Coursera, Venture Lab, and Udacity now have an impressive selection of courses, across the full range of the sciences, technology, arts and …

A serious side to industry incumbents and their inability to innovate

Wed, 17 Oct 2012 23:11:45 +0000

This past weekend, returning home from a trip to London with friends, on a whim I bought a copy of  November’s Practical Boat Owner (PBO) magazine, looking forward to some interesting boating reading in-flight. So it turned out, but what I didn’t expect was for it to provide blogging material on the topic of industry incumbents …

Communications Effort vs. Working Openly

Tue, 09 Oct 2012 10:23:48 +0000

Just had a great conversation that prompted me to have a go at drawing a diagram to visually explain my point, and illustrate some of the implied benefits…. Reactions anyone?    

Not-so-random good stuff

Thu, 27 Sep 2012 10:36:54 +0000

For a friend. Interesting video this on learning from artists about career progress: The Art of Career Development Part 1 of a series from the excellent (IMO) Steve Denning- read them all – about how agility is important, and what is needed to make it work Stanford online creativity course I’ve enrolled in …

Ford cars to become open-source crowd-enabled modular products

Thu, 20 Sep 2012 11:24:42 +0000

Only yesterday I was discussing with friends and colleagues potential impacts of 3D printing, how a number of trends and technology advances are combining to put us as the consumer at the centre of product experiences, providing us with unprecedented choice and the ability to co-create as active participants in the design, configuration and even the …

Change itself is changing

Wed, 06 Jun 2012 09:43:55 +0000

Change. We cannot avoid it. Yet we seem to invest more efforts into attempting to shake it off, than we do embracing it. We dress it up in alternative guises, "trends", "cycles", "disruption".
