In a previous blog post I covered the subtle differences between Remote and Distributed Work, and how we should be a bit more careful when using one or the other concept in order to avoid further trouble and potential confusion. They are not the same, but rather diametrically different! With that piece I also wanted to start … Continue reading Myth Busting – The Hybrid Workplace
Once upon a time, there was work. Then, the office. After that, remote work started to grab some more momentum by the day with the emergence of different technologies. From there onwards, distributed work became the new-normal before we could even blink! And, finally, all of that was followed by the hybrid workplace. Phew! What a ride, eh? I have … Continue reading Differences between Remote and Distributed Work – All about Power, Symbols and Rituals!
Over the course of the last few years I have been planting seeds all over the place. Usually, at other people’s gardens. It’s been a real treat, a true pleasure and an honour. I have always appreciated the opportunity to help amplify different conversations around topics I am very passionate about by sharing my two cents’ worth … Continue reading Shift Happens – The Future Office / Library in a Connected World
We live in truly exceptional times, literally. There is not a single doubt about it. The current COVID-19 pandemic has changed our daily lives for good to the point where we know now we will never be the same again. No matter how much we may try to hide it all in that so-called new-normal. … Continue reading Distributed Work in Exceptional Times
Over the course of the last few weeks it’s become a bit of a challenge finding the time to focus and write my next blog post over here. Just like that, March is now gone and April is nearly half way through already. ‘We truly live in extraordinary times’ was a sentence I wrote ages … Continue reading Impact of Data Analytics in Today’s Digital Workplace
It has been a short while since I last had a chance to create a new blog post over here. If I were to summarise what’s been going on throughout the last couple of weeks, I would probably do it with a single sentence: We truly live in extraordinary times. And, frankly, with that, you … Continue reading IntraTeam – Mastering the Art of Persuasion through Stories
Over the course of the last six years, since I went independent, I have had the opportunity (and still do!) of unlearning a few things in the space of knowledge sharing and collaboration tools. One of the most significant and impactful ones has been acknowledging the fact what once used to be the main good old … Continue reading Hybrid Worlds
Back on January 20th, I celebrated (quietly) my 23rd anniversary in the IT industry. Quite an achievement, indeed, if you would ask me, for someone who graduated as an English teacher back in the day and who didn’t have much of an interest in technology in the first place. Sometimes, I still don’t! It feels like … Continue reading Unlearning
On January 20th, it will mark the 20th year anniversary since I started working in the IT industry. A lot has happened over the course of the last two decades both on a personal and work levels, as you can imagine, and, yet, it feels as if it was just yesterday. That is, probably, why, over … Continue reading The Beginning of a New Work Adventure – Joining panagenda!
We, human beings, seem to always be very keen on blaming the tools (and technology, in general, for that matter) whenever things just don’t work out all right, specially, in the collaboration space. Apparently, it is way easier to blame them (or others!), when our very own things go wrong, than to look into … Continue reading Stop Blaming the Tools when Collaboration Fails
