5 steps to help you embrace uncertainty

How do you decide on the right direction for 2021 if everything can be different tomorrow? Does it make sense to plan when everything is uncertain? Not knowing what tomorrow will bring creates unrest and can even paralyze some organizations. Navigating and setting a course for your organization is more challenging than ever before.

Innovation roles

Your employees at the driver's seat for innovation

In order to innovate successfully within your company, it is crucial that employees are assigned an involved role. In a previous blog, we underlined the importance of an organisational network analysis (ONA). An analysis in which we identify different key network roles. But what exactly do those roles look like? And why are they important for the success rate of your business innovation?

How the world of sports can conquer Corona

As unbelievable as it sounds, the Corona crisis that has been holding court for over half a year now hasn’t been exclusively negative. Sure, the amount of uncertainty it has created for citizens, business leaders, parents, and employees, is incredibly high. And, of course, the sports industry is no exception.

Agile strategy

Ondernemen in tijden van COVID-19

Sport in uw kot!

Niemand kon zich in januari inbeelden dat enkele weken later de voetbalcompetitie zou worden stopgezet, het klassieke wielervoorjaar weg zou vallen, dat EK’s, WK’s en Olympische Spelen zouden worden uitgesteld… Plots blijkt sport langs de ene kant heel relatief, maar langs de andere kant ook broodnodig voor ons fysiek en mentaal welbevinden. Wat betekent de huidige coronacrisis voor de sportwereld? Onze innovation designer Griet, gespecialiseerd in sportinnovatie, geeft haar visie.

Waarom contact tracing call centers wel innovatief (kunnen) zijn

Je leest het overal. De presentatie van de Veiligheidsraad kon op zijn minst beter, toch qua vorm. Maar het meest wordt er gelachen met de keuze van contact tracing via call-center met 1.000 operatoren. Volgens vele commentaren is dit terug naar de 19de eeuw met bakeliet telefoons, kleitabeletten en faxtoestellen. Niks is minder waar.
