It's December! The time for reflection and set-up of new objectives.
While I like the concept of noting down your New Year's resolutions, too often I hear vaguely defined sentences, which I doubt help people to achieve more.
I believe that New Year's resolutions shouldn't be a long list of actions you want to do, but rather a few personal breakthroughs which will stretch you.
With my experience of using Hoshin Kanri model in business, I wrote a blog post on how to define meaningful New Year resolutions which I think could drive personal breakthroughs.
In general I am a very slow book reader. I often use a marker to highlight the sentences which resonate with me the most or I want to re-read them after a while.
Some books are so refreshingly educational that I even decide to write a blog post, which serves as a summary of my key take-aways that I believe can be useful for you too.
This has just happened with "The Blue Ocean Strategy" book by W. Chan Kim and Renee Mauborgne.
What are you favorite books which you have recently read and learnt a lot from?
Transformation and change! These days we hear these words used a lot, and for good reason. According to the Harvard Business Review (HBR) 86% of organizations are in the midst of business transformation or have recently completed one.
While there is quite some studies done already on how to drive successful programmes, I thought it would be good to share my knowledge from another angle.
Most of us are hit by transformation programmes, but rarely get involved in shaping the strategies. So what to do when you are confronted with that sometimes scary sounding TRANSFORMATION?
