The year that is about to end has been a major one regarding innovations in information technology. While many may not have noticed it, the technologies introduced in 2016 have changed our lives, and the trends will be even more obvious in the near future.
The end of the year always brings with it important reflections on the work done so far. This is even more true for eventful and intense years, such as 2016 at IBV. It is just natural to look back to move forward, always one step closer to our vision, but also to take a moment and be proud of all that we accomplished in the past 12 months.
If you ever ran a workshop, you know how high the stakes are. Actionable results are not just a welcome outcome; they are an expectation. But steering multiple stakeholders and facilitate their work together, prompting them to take decisions in a few hours is no easy feat.
The holiday season is upon us, and shopping stress is increasing. Gift-giving is a wonderful tradition, but one which also requires quite some work. Unfortunately, the amount of available free time is always the same, which will punctually translate in hectic weeks ahead, long queues, and general research frenzy in order to find the right presents. Right? Not quite so.
In life as well as in business, there is one fundamental truth: we are all different. Some of us are great speakers, others have a flair for numbers or a great eye for design. It’s not necessarily professional bias, though this can play a role; it’s simply a matter of personal attitudes. We all have that one colleague who just has a great eye for visuals. It’s the person we go to whenever we need an opinion on design, independent of his actual role in the company.
