Working on a Sunday Afternoon…

I can recommend the Explorer book to anyone looking for a different point of view. 😉

Yesterday I was sitting at my desk, just doodling around. Typically time well spent to get some new insights. Re-read some old books. Rainy weather outside. Training done. What else is there to do on such a day. 😉

Working on a new to-do list. Have some reading to do. Why is it that this is always the first activity to fall of the list? I can maintain the work outs, the cycling. Watching the diet etc etc…(yeah really…)

But keeping up with the reading lists, the newsfeeds, the constant live ticker of flowing messages…that is a different challenge. As I am moving into some more consistent combinations of Design Thinking and Strategy I really will need to focus on spending my time well.

Part of the upcoming challenge for the next month(s) . Possible I can keep you posted on the progress and keep you up to speed on the new insights. This will particularly work on the combination of strategy tools and SDT.

I read a nice quote I totally agree with:

Innovation= fresh ideas+ Strategy + Change Management.

I have used this insight so many times. Because I totally experienced how innovation runs into the ground within an organization if the mindset and the processes around the innovative ideas are not embedded in the structural change management culture. Without one of these components you will have a hard time implementing anything I am afraid.

If you want to learn more on new tools to work on your strategy; keep this channel in sight as I am waiting on some new material from Norway to start working on these coming months.

Workshop #BelmontUniversity students

What a great way to spend the morning. 10 students from @BelmontUniv came to @HealthValley to discuss future of Healthcare, the opportunities for digital health startups and the way US based investment corporations might work with us.

The door is open! For the students who are working on a Market Research Consulting project for a US based company called @Briovation, who focuses primarily on investing in healthcare startups. For Briovation to further discuss collaborative action and working more closely together.

We worked with several #designthinking canvasses on problem definition, target groups, personas and customer journey mappings to create a truly holistic overview of the Dutch healthcare innovation eco-system.

Thanks to all the students for their input and energy.
