When it comes to digital progress, we repeatedly criticise the status quo of digital infrastructure and tools in companies in Germany. But if we only ever talk about the technical side, we fall into one of the biggest traps of digitalisation: digital transformation is not achieved by simply updating hardware and software, but above all by changing the way people think.
Many people have the feeling or perception that time is racing by. Why is that? In my blog post, I’d like to share my experiences from my time at adesso so far with you, explain how I managed to decelerate my life and give you some tips on how you can do the same.
You would think that by now companies would’ve become familiar with social media and use it as a matter of course. However, there are some things that are still being done wrong or neglected, even by long-established players. In my blog post, I’d like to point out the most common mistakes that I encounter time and again when analysing companies’ social media.
Key performance indicators (KPIs) are being increasingly used as a control and steering instrument in companies and in projects. Managers also require them to be met. But what are they and what are they for? And what are the challenges and success factors in defining and calculating key performance indicators? I will explain them in my blog post.
Colours have significant meaning in our lives and trigger feelings and emotions in us, making them a key factor when designing the user experience. The choice of colour can also influence the behaviour and decisions of users. In my blog post, I explain the role of colour contrasts, certain symbols and the visual hierarchies.
During the first lockdown, Jon Bailey, a former British sailor, received a lot of attention – including from me – on social media platform Twitter after his tips for working from home went viral. Admittedly, that was quite a while ago and most people have more or less become used to the ‘new normal’ since then. Having said that, there’s no getting away from the fact that the days spent working at home all seem to blend into one and we jump at the chance to add a little variety to our routine. In this post, I’d like to share some of Bailey’s tips with you, as well as some personal recommendations from my colleagues at adesso. Who knows, maybe you’ll come across a tip or two that will help you emerge from the subaquatic world of working from home.
The issue of sustainability is appearing in more and more media headlines and is becoming increasingly important in society as a whole. That’s why it’s also becoming increasingly important for companies to make conscious and considerate use of the resources they employ to ensure they meet the demands of all of their stakeholders (customers, employees and investors). In my blog post, I present four perspectives that companies can use to achieve their sustainability goals.
Data visualisation is only one aspect of interpreting data. However, looking at a representation inevitably leads to a specific interpretation, and this can be problematic. Therefore, in the second part of my blog post, I will give you various examples of how visualisations ‘covertly’ convey their intended message.
WorkAdventure is a game that allows you to recreate the familiar feeling of being in an office or to meet someone by chance at a conference online. This is how we got on.
