Good Day! This is my weekly newsletter, with a dose of insights into the future. The topic of this newsletter is the exponential times we live in, hence the title of f(x) = e^x, which is the (natural) exponential function.
The Organisation of Tomorrow – Available Soon!
My latest article:
Last week, I was notified by the University of Technology Sydney that I have officially completed my PhD (yay!). As a result, I now hold a PhD in management. During my PhD, I researched how emerging information technologies such as big data analytics, blockchain and artificial intelligence, challenge organisation design and strategic management, and bring the role of data in organising to the fore. To help organisations address the challenges of the exponential times we live in, I turned my PhD dissertation into an easy-to-read and digest management book: The Organisation of Tomorrow: How AI, blockchain and analytics turn every business into a data organisation.
