While I’ve long admired IBM, especially during their eBusiness and Social Business eras, my respect for the organization and the people within it has grown immensely over these past few months.

The Power and Importance of Language

The Power and Importance of Language

Transforming the Heart of Business: Our Road Ahead

Transforming the Heart of Business: Our Road Ahead

The Future of Work and Careers

The Future of Work and Careers

In painting a picture of the ideal future of work, I developed this sort of ‘gods eye’ view on what the ecosystem should look like in an open, connected and transparent society. One in which people’s interests are understood and aligned with each others, regardless of where they sit within the ecosystem, as they are […]
