Some thoughts about various Organizational forms and some attributes – not to be seen as good/bad or old/new but to reference which organization is the best for what goal and which tools, what culture is needed to achieve it, plus a people view.
UPDATE!!!The power of diverse networks: Just 2 days after publishing my „draft“, I received 3 beautiful new versions of my notes – even in German and English from Andrea Hauch (see comments). As she needed it for herself, she asked if she could re-use it, which I of course agreed to. Now we all (at least the ones who appreciate this) can say a big thank to her for this awesome translation and upgrade. You can also download it below and us it „alike“ – not for earning money and with mentioning the authors: harald-schirmer.de and Andrea Hauch(mehr …)
VUCA = Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity … this term is used since some years to describe the challenges of the digital age. In my view this is used today in many negative ways: Creating fear, as an excuse, as a dogma and to separate people in „digital“ and analog sections. Of course there are many challenges in this „new world“ of connectedness, but as we know from any changes in the past – we will find ways to deal with them.
But there are also people, who do not only want to „deal“ with problems, but creating real improvements for people. Not driven by technological possibilities, but human needs, a positive mindset and the aim to make our world a better place.
I meet so many of such great people, who want to contribute in many different ways. They are intrinsically motivated, passionate, creative, often fear-less and very resilient. As I am a big believer of „words generate reality“ I try to find terms, which either already express what people do (like GUIDEs), try to „reload“ existing terms with new meaning or I create new ones, which make people think, creating doubts (if their understanding is the only one) or at least make people talk about the topic behind. Not in a destructive but engaging, inspiring way, I would love to have a discussion about
„How do we want to design the VUCA world?“
(not suffering from it)
Want to be part of this and „rock“ VUCA together ?
Call for ideas!
How do YOU personally ROCK VUCA?
write a blogpost, Twitter, LinkedIn…. and tag your post with #VUCArockers
Das Blackboat Bootcamp hat mich durch sein sehr interaktives und an konkreten/relevanten Perspektiven orientierte Format sofort angesprochen. #Miteinander ist für mich einer der Schlüssel für die Arbeit mit Menschen und ein Schlüssel, die neue digitale Welt für uns zu öffnen. Ich freue mich als Keynote Speaker zu einer der drei Säulen „People“ meinen Impuls geben zu können. Am zweiten Tag werden wir intensiver mit Masterclass, Deepdive und individueller Beratung. Wir können so viel voneinander lernen – dazu müssen die Rahmenbedingungen, Hebel und natürlich die Menschen verstanden werden.
..only happens, once great people make it happen. Today in the digital age, we can learn from each other, share our best practices and support us with appreciation – a very needed part of „resilience“ – as changing organizations, foremost needs endurance. In this post I will share the names of such great people (who are active on one of the best learning channels: #Twitter)
appreciation is like a muscle, that needs to be trained
Sharing their names can also be seen as my personal #appreciation to them, as they are giving me strength, knowledge and inspiration to constantly go on. (mehr …)
I use LinkedIn as my professional Business Networking Platform – since May 2011. In 2016 I started various tests, where I could find more value in this platform, other than „just being there“ and getting mails from people selling something, headhunters or advertisements (back than).
Maybe it helps you too, to get started or to enhance the value of your profile.
In Life we focus on the obvious, the „sharp“ things, the ones we can describe, have a name for, we can measure.
Like in #technology this (reduced) view on the measurable/improvable stuff might be a bad mistake?
What if we look what is behind, what is around and in between?
I have the feeling, that we focus too much on the „dead“ stuff – making us become like machines, instead of widening our views, get blurry, dive into feelings, more holistic observing with more than our „typical“ senses.
This is an invitation to re-focus … along those photos. Try to look at the pictures in between, where I removed the „topic“ to expose you to the „space in between“ -maybe that is what really counts, what makes live human…
The DGFP invites you to think about the future of HR in a blog parade. I am happy to participate in the discussion as a basis for the conference on 3-4 May, which will take place in parallel – and in conjunction with re:publica.
The core question is: Why should someone take HR on a mission to Mars? A beautiful image that makes the digital transformation and the necessary „DenkRaumErweiterung“ (means: „Think beyond the common frame“) clear. My provocative thesis:
