Positive experience is a fundamental driver for individual and organizational change. Intrinsic motivation, which arises from sense making, is a key factor to create creative tension. It pulls all of us towards higher visions. At the same hand side sense making is the missing link to turn individual visions into shared visions. It makes us collaborate on aspiring actions.

You want to understand how to improve your impact, create influence that enables you to make your visions come true? This is a source of decent information and ideas, which is supposed to turn your day to day work into the positive experience, that will drive your change.

Orientation

Start with Why

Inspiration

Be Inspired

Practice

Do it

Orientation comes from understanding – concepts for facing the challenges of a fast paced world are present, but they do not come true until they are understood.

Sense Making :: a continuously growing toolbox, which delivers orientation, inspiration, and practical tips for open-minded people working in a digital business environment.

Inspiration requires aspiring challenges and visions – the more compelling the challenge, the more attractive the vision, the bigger is the change you can make.

Sense Making :: a blog on experiences, findings, ideas, and resources corresponding to corner stones of managing change, opportunities from digitalization, and personalized working models.

Practice cannot be replaced by theory – knowledge about how to transfer concepts into aspiring actions gives you the chance to experience and learn how they work best for you.

Sense Making :: a prime address for people with the immanent need to shape a clear, reasonable vision and to turn activities into purposeful actions, which work towards better solutions.

We design complex systems to come around existing complications. We build organizations that empower individuals to contribute to new success stories, like they have never been seen before. Personalization is moving into the center of our thinking and acting. Why? Because it makes sense to us.Harald Dietrich, Sense Maker

Aspects of Success / Features

Digitalization and the continuous succession of new possibilities are asking for an boosted appreciation of existing resources. We need to balance out functional aspects with its fast paced development of emerging technologies and the immanent need to utilize available resources.

Human skills are becoming more relevant as produce is gradually decoupled from procedure. Change is becoming a constant for us and requires adequate forms of organization.

With the ability to follow objectives by maintaining agile procedures and a good understanding of the value of human resources we are able to face continuous change. The personal (intrinsic) motivation of each of us and an establishment of learning organizations are the key to future success.

Expertise / The Author

Experience in the technical and functional domain, understanding what is required and what can be delivered, the mix of two domains has become an important aspect in our work. Only from understanding options we can tell about opportunities and the change we can create from it. Technology is to be complemented by humanity to do the job.

The design and implementation of enterprise scale software solutions, the establishment and continuous improvement of agile methods, the work with teams of various experience levels and motivations as well as many locations, and the challenge to design products to fit business and client expectations have formed a rich set of experiences I can benefit from today. While I learned that there is not that single answer on every question, I started to understand that the priority lies within understanding the questions, why we are looking for better processes, higher objectives, and satisfaction from collaborative work streams.

Today I am working as Product Owner for data driven marketing solutions. I work with technology, where I started from as software developer, and the business, where I found the purpose and value of what I have been doing. The planning of resources, a close working relation with teams to improve satisfaction and output, fostering collaboration between departments, considerations regarding infrastructure, and engagement in a common platform vision comprises the concerted handling of the leap between business as seen by management and possibilities as seen by analytics, development, and delivery teams. I have learned to think in systems and consider built-in-quality.

Over time I have developed a need to understand how things come together and how to bring change by acting instead of telling. This is what I want to share with you and others.

All and Nothing to Know / Content

Digitalization is offering much more flexible forms of communication and collaboration. But it still needs a spark, which sets context and provides an initial frame to get collaboration going.

Blog posts have turned out to be an excellent trigger for ongoing discussions, as they have maintained a wide range of variations. With a good balance of an authors experience, opinion, and believes, they often turn out as a true source for inspiration. Some of them even become primary references as entry point into new topics.

  • Examinations – framing of popular topics and standards with the ambition to foster better understanding about how they work in practice (or not)
  • Compilations – blending ideas from various sources to come up with new aspects worth investigating
  • Reflections – reports on past and recent experiences and conclusions taken
  • Trends & Visions – intellectual games forecasting trends and offering insights into future opportunities
  • Headwords – short posts preserving thoughts and other kinds of notion
  • References – links to other resources of high relevance

Meet and Learn / Events

Exhibitions, conferences, meetups, and bar camps are a great source of inspiration. Meeting people, listening to their views and ideas, having questions and concerns, and fostering discussions is essential to come up with own opinions and visions. Great events tend to be multipliers of means available to you to form new objectives.
