My week thirty-nine (M2) summary
Happy Mother's Day https://www.timeanddate.com/holidays/common/mother-day today. On the picture the view my wife did see this morning, as the kids did prepare a very nice breakfast 👍.
A lot of activities are currently ongoing at work. The new purpose-led strategy around digital first, include all and the planet. What is required to start a self-organized team, what is the best topic for a Bachelor and Master thesis, what should be the next headline for a bi-weekly newsletter, what is the best possible operating model for the new IT organization, etc.? All serious stuff, no buzz word bingo https://www.businessbuzzwordbingo.com/
Interestingly all topics that I did cover in previous BLOG posts already, some even during last week. So I can re-use a lot or offer the links and material to colleagues for support or further processing. Very helpful to have my eBOOK and the search function in the PDF file available, to come to the right posts quickly and find all related content. One example is the "Big Five for Life" book that we might be using for the Bachelor Thesis about personal versus company purpose and a proper connection with the digital first topic, to get the buy in from the supervising professor. Exciting weeks coming up 😉.
