      with “Business Model Innovation”

  • Trend Spotting in Business and Management
    • Since my times as Head of the company university (1988) I have been reading about 80-90 business books per year, and that across all the relevant topics (from Strategy thru Management and Leadership, Marketing,  Finance, Human Capital, IT, Information Management, Innovation, Environment, Geopolitical Order, etc.)
    • This has been complemented by many business journals, magazines, and recently more and more Weblogs.
    • Blended with my 35 years of management experience, this allows me to determine which management concepts are lasting and sustainable, and which ones are fads or just fashionable. And this helps me also to sense emergent trends and new management concepts.
