Okay. Let's have it.
"All men can see these tactics whereby I conquer, but what none can see is the strategy out of which victory is evolved", my favorite strategist Sun Tzu once said.

Strategic Thinking is one of the key business capabilities today, and I am pleased to have the opportunity to work as a strategy consultant in a very interesting industry, e.g. energy & utilities.

Strategy, in my view, is the cunning plan by which we outsmart our enemies and reach the goals set by ourselves. Strategy without information upon which it can rely, is helpless.
Steve Jobs has learned us that design is not about how things look, not about how things feel - it is about how things work.

Design, in my view, is a liberal art of 'relooking' ( I borrow this term from Bruno Latour) - a purposeful process of rethinking and reshaping our hypotheses about what works.

If Strategic Thinking is one cornerstone of modern management, Design Thinking - our ability to create ever better worlds of human and nonhuman agencies is the second.

As a researcher I have had the opportunity to study the work of designers in the field of social media extensively and this has been highly inspirational.

Albert Einstein once said: "If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music. ... I get most joy in life out of music."

I have been playing trumpet and flugelhorn since I was 12. Today, I play big band and small group jazz.
