The Smarter Business Solution for SME: Coworking


Working in a VUCA-World requires flexibility, mobility and agility. By 2020, 80% of knowledge workers will telecommute or rotate between their SOHO, a Coworking Space and perhaps the headquarter, if in the meantime the headquarter didn’t became virtual.

New coworking spaces are providing this informel responsive work organization that reduces costs and offers a permenant look over the personal dashboard. Beyond the new spatial organization, coworking requires a paradigm shift in the way, time, presence and content are measured. But this is another chapter that has to be written and permanently refreshed by the employers and their coworkers, regardless their status: Freelancer, contractor, temporary project manager.

Skills Nobody Knew 2010


Who are these Data Scientists, Social Media Interns or Community Manager? Where did they learn all these new skills?

Certainly not at School or during a MBA somewhere in Europe. The jobs of the future don’t figure on any academic curriculum. They don’t existe yet, neither in our heads nor in reality. We have to keep on learning by doing, adapting our mindset to new technologies that we don’t not really understand. But we perceived the necessity to dive into the flow.
That’s working in a VUCA World. Only some early adopters or smart life long learners will be there when companies suddenly discover the urgent needs.

The Ununi Reality Know-How


The age of decentralized workers becomes reality. Everywhere in global business. In Europe too. And even Germany, the Island of the blissful Internet ignorance, will not stay outside of the future of work. Small and Medium Enterprises, freelancers, glocal knowledge workers…here are some free advices from the ununi. team on how to dive into the age of decentralized working and learning without drawning in numbers.Working and learning are connected. Interconnected during your workflow and you are the junction point. Ready? You’re sure?

Tip N° 1 

Work in a team or in a cluster and give you a task with a deadline.
Select the right tools. There are three major categories for You that we have already tested and tried at ununi.tv. 

  1. Web based content harvesting, curation and saving, such as cloud computing issues ;
  2. Web based online collaboration software, and there are quite a lot we can help you to work better, faster and less ;
  3. Web based communication software. You want to know how it works? Have a look at our website.

Learn how to work and to perform yourself at any place, any time, anyhow, even sitting in the morning sun on the dock of the bay…
Stay remotely conneted, everyday if you have to do so.  The future belongs to the glocally connected people.  You may want to stay at home, but you have to be connected to the world.
Don’t step into the trap of the extended time line: Time is money. If you want to loose both, do it at least with pleasure and awareness. Are you respecting your timeline ? If the answer is “Yes”…you have successfully implemented a telecommuting program. If the answer is “No”….you’d better ask for some help. Decentralized working requires self organized people. That’s the biggest challenge.  What’s the keyword of this first tip out of our toolbox ?

Telecommuting.  You want to know more about how it works ? Just ask ! What do they call it in Germany? Telearbeit ! Sounds like work, but this is part of the digital divide between the 21st century web economy and the old European way of thinking. Paradigm shift is already in the move. Stay in the flow.

Connecting The Human Dots


Connecting The Human Dots

Connecting the Human Dots

When I’m participating at the global information flow and at the Enterprise 2.0 events, everybody is emphasizing the huge potentialities of the massive open online collaboration flow enabling knowledge workers, developers, engineers and managers to connect and to communicate on the world wide web and to manage projects in an efficient decentralized streaming. 

Everybody is talking about content creation, community management, social thinking and decentralized workflow. The  Brave New Social Platform World is knocking at the door, but in real(work)life the Social Platforms don’t  create empathy. 

In my role as Community Manager at France Business School and consultant of a cross-boundary competency cluster, I test, try compare and recommend together with my students and interns all sorts of different platforms, software technologies and solutions in order to find out what makes the difference and where is the competitive advantage. We are trying to detect the immediate limits the usefulness of an online collaborative platform. After all, you wouldn’t invest in a sophistacted fully fitted kitchen, if you prefer to have breakfast, lunch and dinner at McDonalds.

Online platforms and the social workflow are supposed to drive the open innovation process, user generated content, crowdsourcing and cross-cultural communication when used efficiently and for the benefit of customers, co-workers as well as the business. But the software enabling all this social thinking and co-working paradigm shifts remains the main hurdle to get access to the open innovation process and liquid knowledge management. It’s made by smart developers for people they don’t understand.

Online platforms are performant if they are really open, transparent, accessible and involving everybody….and operative from the top to the bottom, from the periphery to the control center of any organization. Companies are installing an online collaborative platform for a space they have not yet explored and that they consider as quite spacey.   Moreover, by investing in an online collaboration platform, they are edging themselves into an open workflow, they would like to control and maintain therefore,  on the other side, the hurdles at any level.

That one of the biggest mistakes. The next one is the digital gap between the end user, probably a female end user (working at a remote workplace, decentralized, far away from Silicon Valley or Berlin) who will have to spend many hours in order to find the little apps hidden behind a little arrow, hidden by a hover effect. It took us (a 4 member team of digital natives) one day to understand the tricky apps of Teambox.  

Each social platform has its own little nuances, this task becomes even more convoluted. If a software company  doesn’t have the human dots connecting the data analysis and catalyzing the digital dots to the human dots, Social Software remains a messy, tricky challenge. Facebook became the biggest social software platform in the world while  more and more many intelligent online-platforms don’t know how to connect the human dots.
