As a theorist for ‘Hybrid Environments’ (what I call any techno-social or eco-social system) and long time business consultant I have thoughts and opinions on organisations, how they work, what they do, and what they could be.

This category collects some of my ‘thinking in public’ on organisational forms, software and the psychic impact it can have on a workplace, types of corporate memory and more.

I write in public so I can be corrected. If you read anything interesting here, or wish to vent about why I am wrong, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
