Quand la smart city a sa propre personnalité

Je dois reconnaitre qu’au fil des années j’ai développé une légère obsession envers les neurosciences et le concept de « personnalité » issu du monde du marketing. J’essaye de l’inclure dans la majorité de mes travaux. Il y a peu, j’écrivais sur un thème assez généraliste : l’importance de la personnalité du consommateur, le tout depuis l’angle du […]

What to consider when rolling out big public sector programs

On a Friday night late last year, my home state of Massachusetts formally flipped the switch and converted to no-stop electronic tolling on the infamous Mass Pike. Everyone who has experienced no-stop electronic tolling appreciates the time savings it creates — and how it eliminates looking under floor mats for that extra quarter while going 50 mph. I still recall […]
