Den femte disciplinen får Nobels fredspris

Publicerat 14 February 2019

Den Femte Disciplinen är en bok som sprängde pärmarna då den kom ut 1990. Det var det år då Nelson Mandela släpptes ur fängelset, då Öst- och Vässtyskland återförenades, och då världshälsoorganisationen WHO tog bort homosexualitet från sin lista över sjukdomar.

En idé som ska fyllas med innehåll

Det är en bok om den lärande organisationen. Det är en bok om en idé som ska fyllas med innehåll. Det är inte en best practice eller en färdig modell. Tankarna om lärande organisationer hade prövats av Margaret Mead, Douglas McGregor, Reg Revans, David McClelland och Chris Argyris. På 1930- och 40-talen hade Ludwig van Bertalanffy lanserat systemtänkandet eller systemteorin:

”Ett system är en helhet som består av ett antal ömsesidigt samverkande delar. Samverkan mellan delarna utgörs av ett utbyte av information, materia eller energi.”

Ett organ i kroppen, en grupp människor, ett militärt flygplan, djur och växter i en ekologisk nisch och en aktiemarknad är exempel på system.

Digital strategy: The four fights you have to win

Publicerat 11 February 2019

We can recommend a read of the McKinsey article talks about the four fights you have to win

in your digital strategy.

If there’s one thing a digital strategy can’t be, it’s incremental. The mismatch between most incumbents’ business models and digital futures is too great—and the environment is changing too quickly—for anything but bold, inventive strategic plans to work.

The great thing about the last years cyber attacks

Publicerat 21 January 2019

The Cybersecurity threats are increasing and we can assume that we will see more attacks and breaches during 2019. Being responsible for developing the cybersecurity at an organisation can be a challenging and sometimes a lonely task. It is impossible (and not to mention very very expensive) to protect an organisation for all types of cybercrime – a substantial analysis and prioritization of the greatest risk for your specific organisation has to be done. And if you succeeded with your job – not enough people will thank you, and if you not succeed – then you will get the blame.

The great thing about the last years cyber attacks

In 2018 many cyber attacks has become known to the public; Cambridge analyticaRussian Grid Hacking, US Universities  and many more.

Of course there is never a good thing that these attacks are happening and setting people and organizations at risk- but if we have to find something good that came out of it, it is the fact that the general awareness regarding these matters has increased.

Samtal med Konfucius – boktips från Christian Pleijel

Publicerat 14 January 2019

”If you believe you are the smartest person in the room, you’re in the wrong room.”

Vilken underbar one-liner av Konfucius, som ansåg att alla föds lika och formas genom utbildning och övning. Jag gillar det men så jobbar jag ju på KTH, där jag i de flesta rum inte är den smartaste.

Tyvärr var det inte Konfucius som sa detta.
