The future is only scary if we try to avoid it.

A great day today, as we together reached a new record high for weekly readers --> 1,633 for the past week, really impressive, thanks a lot.

With respect to future some of the current buzz words are - being customer centric, going digital and agile, be simpler and faster (run several iterations, fail fast and early). A good article from McKinsey (July 2018) related to this topic - Unleashing the power of small, independent teams  https://www.mckinsey.com/business-functions/organization/our-insights/unleashing-the-power-of-small-independent-teams?cid=other-eml-nsl-mip-mck-oth-1808&hlkid=0c8d5fc7202b4e2cac6ec8a092d8330a&hctky=9946258&hdpid=8a3fd5bc-8a1d-47ae-a36b-85ee54d9761c 

On top of the reader record my candidate with the 2nd interview did get a contract proposal from the customer today. A nearly six month journey might be coming to a positive end, now it is up to the candidate to decide 😉. The other one was rejected due to missing language skills and the grades in the final certificate. Really sad that the candidates get too often judged by the "obvious" issues and not by the potential they could bring to the position 🤔.
