New Year’s Decisions!

A new year, new possibilities, new promises. Being a decision making enthusiast I just have to share my thoughts, because this is one of my favorite moments in a year. What is New Year's other than social decision making at its truest? When the end of the year is closing, it's time to look back. What did we do? How did we succeed? Did we meet the set goals? What went wrong, is there something we...

Websummit and Slush– the hottest events of November

Running a startup is a hard core sport, like climbing the Himalayas, it’s dangerous. You risk everything, your career, your mental health, your family, friends and loved ones. 20 years ago when I started, I felt like an outcast. My friends were asking why does that guy want to run a startup? Now the sexiest events happening in Europe are the big startup conventions. How does it make me feel? I’ve spent nearly 20 years in...

First times leading to decision-making best practices

One of the things I love about start up life is constantly facing situations with the company for the very first time. Doing things without prior experience is a thrill and a challenge, but also at the same time a risk. Two weeks back we held the Fingertip Webinar #1, hopefully a first in a series of many to follow. We got to choose a webinar platform, build the content and the marketing campaign, brand...

Decision-making is the buzz

Do you know how many times the word ‘decision’ was mentioned in the Salesforce World Tour Amsterdam keynotes last week? 44 times (oh yes, we counted!). That’s amazing. The most dangerous place to make a decision is the office. The decisions need to be made in the field with the customer, said Ulrik Nehammer from Coca-Cola.  Carmina Coenen from Salesforce.com stated that we should have all our decisions at our fingertips. The mobility of todays’ decision-maker requires good...

Surviving in the constant swirl of change is hard, trying to thrive in it is a real challenge. It takes good timing, luck, resilience, the ability of visionary thinking – and above all, good decision-making. I’ve...

You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours!

Every workplace has the problem of unequal division of workload. We perform differently, our abilities vary, and personal situations affect our effectiveness. If one individual is accomplishing 80% of everything, what the heck are the rest doing? How do we level out the workload? We’re willing to do charity in our free time, so why not at work? A transparent workbench provides the boss with an understanding of what’s going on. Leveling out the workload...

Accountability – Driving Better Decisions

There is a reason why the 11 players on a football team are assigned particular positions on the field. Just as having too many chefs in a single kitchen isn’t beneficiary for getting a meal prepared. Roles guide us to playing our part and providing the needed input. Roles are also needed in decision-making. Everyone thinks they’re responsible and accountable, in reality no one is. Am I being consulted or just informed of what was already...
