Paradigm Shift

From Beyond Social

It is my mission to welcome exponential development technologies as sources for positive change and societal value. As I see it, recent developments towards radical transparency, empowerment of individuals, traceability and a collaborative network economy are reshaping society and leading to business innovation; one of my statements is 'small beats big'. In my presentation at the WdKA symposium 'Redesigning Business' (November 20 2014) I talked about the concept of paradigm shift and its consequences for businesses.
