Documents are dead

The last few years I have noticed a little trend in my own company and many others, via customers, suppliers and friends, that we are confusing documented information with knowledge. We document everything in office tools, databases, wikis etc. We call them knowledge centers, knowledge articles, knowledge guides etc. Somehow we have started to think that …

Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela and levels of thinking

Nelson Mandela has passed away 95 years old and that got me thinking about what this extra ordinary man stood for and what made him special. He gave us a fantastic story and showed us what leadership should be like. We must continue and build on what he stood for, especially today when the radical right wing winds …

Dregen : självbiografin, en recension

Har just läst ut Dregens självbiografi som e-bok från Bokon.se  Varför vill man skriva en biografi när man bara fyllt 40? I Dregens fall handlar det mest om ett bokslut. ‘Så här har det sett ut fram tills nu. Del två kommer senare.’ Jag kan köpa den idén och det ger ju dessutom extra intresse runt …

Hela historien är så dum att den knappt borde diskuteras annat än …
