Not IT on itself, but what you can accomplish using Information Technology, is what stimulates me in my professional life. I am intrigued on how to achieve a better life through software. And how you can use modern technology to further improve work related deliverables!
THE BRIGHTER THE LIGHT
The brighter the light, the more aligned the shadow will be.
Ideas, visions and thoughts, can be seen as shadows of our minds
This is what I believe in to obtain my goals (4 Cs) based on 29+ years of business experience:
Creativity in what you do and how you solve complex business challenges
Communicate what you want to do, how you would like to proceed and what you've accomplished
Continuity; every day again going for excellence while aligning your daily activities to a common goal
Cooperation is about working together with the people in the organisation
Other Cs that can be considered as useful are:
Customer, target your efforts to your customer (internal or external) audiences
Cash means that you still have to remember the initial business objectives or bottom line
Competition is never sitting still, be open for innovation and realise that change is everywhere
Cause I'm convinced that learning is an ongoing process and effort, I frequently attend seminars and other courses.
CHANGE IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN KEEPING SECRETS
Effective Knowledge Management (KM) should provide an answer to the following questions:
How do we store knowledge?
How can we exchange it?
How can we make knowledge accessible?
How do we enhance and stimulate (re)use of knowledge?
The Knowledge Process has some specific needs:
Knowledge creation is about people and culture.
It must link to real business needs and objectives.
Support from top management and support from the floor is key.
Recognise those who are willing to share their knowledge!
Continuity, KM is a part of our daily task.
