THE NEW NORMAL
With The New Normal, Peter Hinssen looks at the way companies have to adapt their information strategy, their technology strategy, their innovation strategy and the way they are organized internally. This keynote is an interesting choice for any manager who is concerned with the future of his company as it is hit by the digital revolution.
The New Normal
The idea behind the 'New Normal' is quite simple: 'We're halfway there'. 'The New Normal' is about all things we call 'digital', and in the digital revolution we're probably only halfway there. That means we have as much journey ahead of us as we have behind us. This book is about the trend spotting and creative thinking needed to prepare ourselves for the world of possibilities awaiting us in the big ocean of the New Normal. Talking about the digital society could soon make you sound old and out of date - such is the pace of change. Advancement in technology is creating a 'new normal' where relationships with consumers are increasingly in a digital form.
The Spirit of the Valley
Roadtrip van drie gerenommeerde experten-ondernemers door het belangrijkste innovatiecentrum van de wereld Waarom is de Valley net zo anders? Hoe is het gebied zo belangrijk kunnen worden? Wat voor vernieuwingen houdt het nog in petto? Maar vooral: wat kunnen jonge ondernemers leren van de Valley? Like kids in a candy store. Zo voelden Peter Hinssen, Steven Van Belleghem en Harry Demey zich wanneer ze samen met zeventien andere succesvolle CEO's een week lang door de mythische en ongrijpbare Silicon Valley rondtoerden. Dit boek probeert die Valleycultuur te vatten. Vanuit interviews met de nieuwe generatie van wonderboys en -girls, maar ook via bedrijfsbezoeken bij Google, Tesla, Apple of SpaceX, gaan de CEO's op zoek naar wat de radicale vernieuwers uit Silicon Valley de wereld en onze ondernemers te bieden hebben. The Spirit of the Valley biedt een venster op een unieke cultuur. Eén die de wereld wil veranderen, de toekomst wil smeden en het leven wil hertekenen - maar die je bovenal wil uitnodigen om hetzelfde te proberen.
The network always wins
Wat als markten sneller veranderen dan bedrijven?
Dit is een boek over snelheid, consumenten en organisaties. Een survivalgids voor wie de toekomst in handen wil nemen. In het huidige digitale tijdperk zijn de traditionele bedrijfsmodellen immers steeds minder relevant. De tijd van fluïde organisaties en de 'network native' is aangebroken. The Network Always Wins toont aan hoe de kracht van het netwerk organisaties in dit nieuwe tijdperk kan maken of kraken, en hoe je die energie kan aanwenden om je organisatie wendbaar te houden. Enkel op die manier kunnen bedrijven een rol blijven spelen in een onzekere toekomst. Want het netwerk is overal, en zal altijd winnen. Dit boek biedt een origineel en radicaal vernieuwend venster op de moderne organisatie aan de hand van verrassende inzichten uit management, astrofysica, wiskunde en moderne geschiedenis. Het is even leerzaam als aangenaam om te lezen.
