No atrape a sus empleados en una “oficina abierta”

Trabajo desde casa desde hace 20 años, algo a lo que estoy muy agradecido. Tiene todas las ventajas imaginables. No debo hacer un viaje estresante y que desperdicie mi tiempo. Controlo mi entorno y tengo la flexibilidad de fijar mi propio horario, o tomarme descansos que pasan desapercibidos. Incluso siempre tengo ropa limpia a mi […]

El cambio asusta, la disrupción también, pero quedarse atrás es aterrador

El mundo laboral está a punto de cambiar drásticamente. Realmente, lleva un tiempo evolucionando, al rebufo de los impresionantes avances de las tecnologías digitales, que están llevando al mundo laboral a un modelo basado en los empleos esporádicos. Pero el ritmo, ya vertiginoso, del cambio se va a acelerar en los próximos 15 años, volviendo […]

The intersection evidence, eminence and eloquence based healthcare leadership

three-way-intersection

I’m a complete sucker for a great sales pitch. Part of that is because I spent most of my life pitching. Another part is that I spend dozens of hours a month speaking in front of groups of skeptical business leaders and graduate students. I know how a strong presentation style can occasionally overcome less […]

Making meetings work for you and your project

business-meeting-with-project-manager

I can remember very clearly the worst meeting I was ever involved in. A “flagship” municipal project with the potential to bring world admiration to a city. This new project needed new IT systems. So 44 of us sat in a room together — architects, engineers, program and project managers, business analysts, change managers, release […]

Répondre aux cyberattaques : la dimension culturelle

Votre entreprise et ses systèmes ont été piratés. Les téléphones sonnent à plein régime, le trafic de votre site Web explose et vos boîtes email sont pleines à craquer. Les données confidentielles et financières de vos employés et de vos clients sont exposées. Il est impossible de déterminer l’origine du piratage, mais les implications sont […]

Don’t trap your workers in an “open office”

employees-working-in-an-open-office

I’ve been working from my home for the past 20 years, a situation for which I am extremely grateful. It has all the advantages you could imagine. There’s no stressful, time-wasting commute. I control of my environment and have the flexibility to set my own schedule and take breaks without raising eyebrows. Plus I’m always […]

Leveraging global centers of gravity for digital disruption

globe-on-desk

Those of us who have spent our careers in global industries used to face the “not invented here” challenge of resistance to ideas from the outside.  Americans traipsed around the world trying to convince their international counterparts that they had all the answers related to marketing and technology. Sometimes it worked. In many cases, it […]

DXC employee volunteers construct IT School in Colombia

DXC-helps-build-school-in-La-Guajira

The indigenous Wayuu children in the remote La Guajira region of northern Colombia now have a bright yellow, two-classroom, IT school — thanks to DXC Technology and hardworking employee volunteers in the North and Central Europe (NCE) region. The school — a first for DXC — was inaugurated February 22 as the successful finale of […]

Comment préparer vos collaborateurs à l’arrivée de l’IA

AI-in-the-human-workforce

L’innovation technologique doit être au service de l’Homme et s’adapter à lui. Même en rappelant ce principe, le spectre de robots voulant nous « piquer notre boulot » s’installe, nourri par le fatalisme de prédictions évoquant des milliers de postes supprimés, notamment parmi les emplois les moins spécialisés. A ce jour, les chiffres ne permettent pas de […]

Change is scary. Disruption is scary. Being left behind is scarier

left-behind

The world of work is about to change dramatically. Truthfully, it already has been for some time, driven by stunning  advances in digital technology and a shift in the job market toward a gig economy. But the already torrid pace of change will accelerate over the next 15 years, rendering unrecognizable many of the tools […]
