Blockchain simply explained – for all those who still can’t quite understand it.

Blockchain is currently on everyone's lips. And if you are as concerned as I am, the large number of articles on this subject does not help you to really understand how this technology actually works. I needed a very pictorial explanation from a colleague to understand the principle. I would now like to pass on … Weiterlesen Blockchain simply explained – for all those who still can’t quite understand it.

Which „digital“ competences do we need in the future? A case study with generic value

I have already described the dynamics of digital transformation in several contributions (cf. Krapf 2017; Krapf 2016a). In a specific contribution, I also discussed the importance of elaborate (action) competences and their systemic safeguarding in the new age of automation. In an age in which machines are not only replacing our muscle power, but are … Weiterlesen Which „digital“ competences do we need in the future? A case study with generic value

Agility culture for coping with digital transformation

The Digital Transformation has stirred up dust. So much dust that old, familiar insights appear new again. As a result, hardly any text on digital transformation does not begin with the hint that the dynamics of the environment, the pressure of competition and innovation or the uncertainty and ambiguity are constantly increasing. This is not … Weiterlesen Agility culture for coping with digital transformation

Development of digital competences – three practical approaches

In an earlier contribution, I have identified fields of action in which digital competences play a role (Krapf 2017b). The basis of this thought structure was the division into an operative, a strategic and a normative level (see Fig. 1). This framework of reference was not an end in itself, but was to be used … Weiterlesen Development of digital competences – three practical approaches

Digitalization is the present, don’t neglect thinking about the future

Digitalization and digital transformation are often used interchangeably. Even though the former depicts the third and the latter the forth industrial revolution (see Krapf 2017b; Krapf 2016). Those who reflect on the digitalization could therefore neglect the future. I’d like to elucidate this claim with a short comparison between digitalization and digital transformation. Digitalization as … Weiterlesen Digitalization is the present, don’t neglect thinking about the future

Gamification to foster self-learning competence

While self-regulated learning has been researched for some time by scientist following a constructivist world view (Euler 2009, S. 35; Götze 2010, S. 22; Rebel 2008, S. 108), the interest of enterprises in this topic seems to increase. In one of the biggest financial institute in Switzerland the entire learning architecture has been restructured in order to increase … Weiterlesen Gamification to foster self-learning competence

Why and how agility is needed to handle the Digital Transformation

The Digital Transformation in the sense of the fourth industrial revolution is not comparable with the Digitalization, which characterized the third industrial revolution (Bauer et al. 2014, S. 10). Even though both terms are used interchangeably in the vernacular, there are significant differences. In comparison to the Digitalization the Digital Transformation brings an even higher … Weiterlesen Why and how agility is needed to handle the Digital Transformation
