This has nothing to do with security nor with technology – 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 “yeah, yeah” but downloaded it and started to read – and I love it. The reason is that it is one of the few management books which really start with “make sure you have the right people” and the rest then falls into place – 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 – 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 – just think about it.
