Thanks for an amazing journey

It is a cold Friday evening, February 2006. My wife, Kasia, and I are sitting on a sofa, enjoying a warm glow of our open fire and a beautiful glass of red wine. We are reflecting on our life, what we have achieved, how happy we are with our beautiful family and exciting careers. Nevertheless, it feels as if something is missing, we are not fulfilled. We feel like finding a new purpose in life. Shall we start looking for

My triathlon addiction

Many friends and colleagues have been asking how I got so addicted to triathlon and what keeps me motivated and therefore I’ve decided to share my sports story, because it hasn’t always been like that. Hopefully, this story will motivate others as well.

Do you know that feeling that you should be more active and that it is high time to start moving? I had that feeling for years. Up and down I was doing some things for a

June 28October 4th, 2020, I plan to finish a 70.3 Ironman in Hoorn, The Netherlands. It will be my first race in my home country, which is rather weird. This video shows a summary of last year’s event. I’m really curious what it will be like.

When I learned their main problem, I was a bit flabbergasted. They didn’t know how to deal with it and are afraid to be legging behind. So, what is causing this fear and should you be afraid at all?

What is Digital

Are we made to be Agile?

The expectations of lean working practices and the agile ones derived from it are high. Everybody would like to achieve the efficiency and effectivity gains as Toyota managed to achieve after inventing their new way of working. The reality appears to be harder than expected. Negative experiences with these methods make us do believe they are not for us, but is that really true? Why only a few seem to profit?

Microsoft all about providing an experience

Satya Nadella core note Inspire 2018

Over the past years Microsoft focused mostly on providing the market with the right devices. Because other device producers didn’t do well enough, Microsoft bought Nokia and developed their own Surface. The Nokia acquisition wasn’t successful and it made Microsoft realise it has a different purpose. During Microsoft’s yearly partner event Inspire in Las Vegas, Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s CEO clearly showed Microsoft’s new ambition: experience centric development to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve

Feeding the development pipeline right is KING!

John, a product manager of a large corporate, proudly shows his management what results their 200 software development teams are delivering every second week!

He knows he impressed them. But soon his confidence is gone. With a weak voice, he confesses the teams do not have enough work to be done …..

They react furiously. “Impossible”, the business management claims, because there is work for about 10 years queuing.

John knows the long wish list, but he does not know

Innovation will come especially when we don’t expect it

Change is never cheap or easy, says Ronald Binkofski, General Manager, CEE Multicountry CIS. Service providers, such as Microsoft and Goyello, must help their partners go through this process, even if this means you have to convince them it is really worth doing. Peter Horsten, Managing Director at Goyello, talked with Ronald Binkofski about Microsoft’s cloud transition.

PETER HORSTEN: Around 2010, former Microsoft CEO Ballmer claimed that Microsoft was going all in to the cloud. There was some criticism, even among
