Early bird discount's finished, but there's still time to book on the upcoming Washington DC Cognitive Edge courses – which would be highly recommended even if I weren't teaching with Michael Cheveldave. (I won't be there for the Narrative day on 2nd October, though – I'll have gone to Ottawa by then to work with […]
One week to go until the courses start in London. Details here Dave Snowden and I are teaching Days 1-3, while Dave is doing Day 4. The brochure is here – now get yourself together and I'll see you there!
Further to yesterday's post about the upcoming courses with Cognitive Edge, diaries have worked out such that Washington DC (Details here) will be a two-handed affair with myself and Dave Snowden teaching, while London (Details here)will be a unique one – three different presenters: Dave, Michael Cheveldave and myself passing the baton at different points […]
Two upcoming courses that I'd highly recommend – and not just because I'm helping teach them these days.

In particular, we talk about: using customer […]

With experts like Harold, Ton, Erwin and Aart-Jan, we're looking forward to sharing some […]
Reduced budgets are producing some interesting approaches to the necessary decisions to be made. A recent visit to the Blackberry Clinic in Milton Keynes showed me one of them: it turns out that the local PCT, having to cut budgets by a substantial percentage, had gone for the simple approach – stopping all treatment in […]
I ran an innovation session recently for a client's senior management team that featured an exercise that a lot of people shy away from. There is a great tendency for lots of people to stress positivity – building on ideas, reducing criticism, etc. I can understand that – but it's also unrealistic to stay in […]
The other week, while researching this post, I came across some fantastic additional resources stemming from the GlobalGiving project. This video is great Even better yet, the GlobalGiving team have been very generous in putting up a complete overview of the project – from how they worked, to how they used SenseMaker and looked at […]
