Black Swan

Solving World Problems

It is said that a brain‘s size positively correlates with its host‘s level of intelligence. The ability of human beings to use tools in very elaborate ways, to create art or to invent and tell stories to each others, seems to prove a certain supremacy over other creatures. As long as we won‘t have discovered supernatural life, humans regard themselves as being the pride of creation. Ok, then – all

Bridging The Gap

Yesterday over lunch, we discussed the libertarian notion of essentially getting rid of legacy complexity, such as legislation, regulation, etc. Some of the early proponents and creators of crypto currencies have expressed libertarian world views by trying to leave the monetary system of central banks and hand over the power of money creation to the people.

Beyond Logic

At school, I was never good in maths. At the university, I was interested in statistics, but only marginally. Honestly, I started tu learn about the beauty of maths many years later, when working with more intelligent people than me who understand computers and data, in general.  After I started working on Blockchain and other distributed ledger technologies in 2014, I began to realise that some aspects of maths, such

Change Agents

A change agent is a person from inside or outside the organisation who helps an organisation transform itself by focusing on such matters as organisational effectiveness, improvement, and development. This is, what the dictionary says. For me, change agents are everywhere, and always behind the next corner. My behaviour could be defined as my actions based on several given different preconditions, such as my environment, my state of mind and

Predecentralism

At the beginning of 2019, none of the new theories and labels for the era after postmodernism, which itself seems to have come to an end, have so far gained widespread acceptance. Post-postmodernism, trans-postmodernism, post-millennialism, pseudo-modernism. digimodernism or metamodernism are some of the attempts to find an appropriate label for the times we are living in. My suggestion is: Predecentralism. With predecentralism I mean an era before most of our

The Enterprise Evolution: From Hierarchichal Institutions To Protocols

From the early days of capitalism, when from 1633 the Hollandische Mercurius referred  to capitalists as the owners of capital, on to David Ricardo who, in his Principles of Political Economy and Taxation  is seen as the one who actually coined the term capitalism, until today: the structure and behavior of the enterprise as the main capitalist entity, hasn’t changed that much. With the advent of blockchain technology, the evolution

Connecting The Dots

The days between X-Mas and New Year’s Eve are somewhat special for me: formally, I decide not to work, and most part of the day that’s true. But since I have been an entrepreneur all my life, there’s no distinct line between business and non-business, these days provide the time for reflections – how was the past year? – and for thoughts about goals and instruments for the approaching next

New Product Development in the Age of Smart Things

If you’re responsible for new product development in your company, you will be familiar with the several steps of that process. Experts mostly separate the new product development process into seven or eight steps, starting with idea generation and finishing with a post launch review. The fact that more and more things become smart; i.e. they either feature some intelligence or they are connected and controlled through the IoT, has

The Paradigm Shift

The only human being who wants change is a toddlers who needs a new diaper. This bonmot is especially true if change is fundamental, if something substantial is changing, if a paradigm shifts. Now and then, things, technologies, perspectives change dramatically. If you happen to work in an industry experiencing such a change, consider yourself fortunate if you can accept or even welcome it. Many, if not most people try

Dropping Expectations

We tend to start any interaction with our fellow co-humans based on certain expectations. This is true especially for long-term private relationships as well as for business environments. What would happen if we dropped our expectations and interacted without any Interpretation of our counterpart’s reactions? Starting from my personal experiences, I suggest to skip any specific expectation regarding the reaction of your conversational partner for a week or so, be
