Hi folks,


I don’t know you, but I have always been really confused about creativity and innovation. Which comes first?


In this video I share my understanding of the role that creativity plays when crafting new business strategies.



As business people we tend to jump to a new solution (a new product)… way to fast.


Engrossed in our innovation effort we frequently omit to first free ourselves from the burden of an old idea (our current product/service).


This keeps us prisoners of a current understanding of a problem or opportunity, cutting the wings of our creativity.


Creativity starts with forgetting what we already know and destroying an old paradigm in order to create a new one.


Free yourself, embrace your creative side first, and then yes go… innovate!


Have fun.

Hi folks,


It’s easy to describe an already developed and successful strategy, yet the intriguing question is ‘’how did a strategy happen?’’


Was the strategy fully formed and clear in the mind of the founder of an organisation and he/she just merely delegated employees to implement it?


Or rather, strategies emerge overtime? Bouncing between different minds? Driven by the learning generated by conducting small experiments?


In this video I have highlighted different theories about the strategy formation process.



My hope is that you’ll think about it in light of your organisation.


I’m creating a new on-line course: Emerging strategies: creativity and innovation at work which aims at exploring the origin of strategy.


Please subscribe to my YouTube channel to keep up to speed with my latest videos.


Have fun!

In two hours you will discover what we can learn today from the historical development of the field of business strategy, as managers, as entrepreneurs, and as innovators generally.


Placing the traditional strategic tools in an historical perspective not only helps us to understand the reason why they were created but also informs us how to use them properly when innovating in our organisations.


For you that follow my work thorough this blog I have created a promotional coupon containing a special discount, which will expire in one week.


You can purchase a single subscription for the course or (if you are an organisation) interested in buying multiple subscriptions please contact me.


Become a better strategic thinker; discover the forgotten part of business strategy.


Please feel free to share this with colleagues and friends.


Stay tuned.

The economics of entrepreneurship

Conventional economics theories are incapable of explaining entrepreneurship. This is mainly because they are concerned with measurable entities, calculus and analytical models e.g. equilibrium between demand and supply.


Disciplines like sociology, anthropology and philosophy are a much better fit to study entrepreneurs and they work, because they look behind the rational self.


Entrepreneurship, I believe, belongs more to the heart rather than the mind.


Science, rationality, math and physics are useful when it comes to finding the rules beyond the existing, but they fall short to explain something that doesn’t exist yet.


The only economics of entrepreneurship I can think of, is the richness of the hearts of entrepreneurs which makes them fight, believe, crash and burn and be born again from their ashes.
