The first time….Back from Cornwell..

By Luca Letizia  ·  May 31, 2009  · 

Hi All,
This is my first time blogging.... So, let's start and se how it goes... We just got back from a week in Cornwell with the children as last week was half term. Yesterday we had excellent weather and we went down to the beach in Sennen. Now before I continue you should know that I am Italian, I grew up in Naples and spent the first 23 summers of my life between Sorrento, Ischia, Capri and the Amalfi Coast. For the ones who have not been there summers in the south of Italy can be HOT, I mean really hot, 35 C + and the...

Taking measured steps

By Vivienne Blake  ·  May 29, 2009  · 

I know the theory of goal-setting, but it’s a very different thing to live it. As mentioned in a previous blog, I am participating in the Global Corporate Challenge, in which teams of 7 people aim to take 10,000 steps a day.

Dave had just done his compelling spiel about complexity and all the CE tools to deal with it. I was contemplating a gig I had scheduled for later that week, with a client group who were undergoing a merger within a university context. An introverted research unit was being merged with a sales-oriented unit which taught advanced medical skills. I had a nice, safe...

KM Interview

By Dave Snowden  ·  May 28, 2009  ·  News

Apologies for the absence of blogs over the last few days. I have been completing a report on a major narrative project that has involved around a week of late night working and two all-nighters (you can do a lot with a snatched period of sleep after lunch). I also have a lot of email to catch up on and other tasks in consequence. For those interested here is an interview I did in New Zealand last year which has just been made available (the transcript, much augmented is also going to be a book chapter later this year). Now I should...
