This has nothing to do with security nor with technology â€“ but it is worth (in my opinion) 20 minutes of your time!
Recently a friend of mine told me to read Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap…And Others Don’t by Jim Collins. Well, I said kind of â€œyeah, yeahâ€ but downloaded it and started to read â€“ and I love it. The reason is that it is one of the few management books which really start with â€œmake sure you have the right peopleâ€ and the rest then falls into place â€“ it is not that easy (not even in the book) but it starts there.
Today, I saw a status update by one of my former managers (about 20 years ago) on Facebook linking to a video from TEDxKoeln by Heiko Fischer called The Future of Work â€“ going into a very similar direction. It takes you 17:15 minutes but in my opinion, well invested 17:15 minutes. If you cannot watch it embedded, here is the link.
If you have seen it now, please do not tell me that this is something your management has to change. I am convinced that it always starts with you â€“ just think about it.
