Let me introduce myself: “I help organizations to reduce digital waste with the help of blockchain and the digital assembly line.” I am an international speaker, strategic consultant, entrepreneur, and (co) author of more than ten management books.
I combine modern organization science with disruptive organization technologies in order to reduce digital wast. Digital waste causes more than a third of the total costs of office organizations. With my teams I develop new concepts such as the Digital Assembly Line and Blockchain Organizing to organize supply and demand of data in a more decentralized democratic and programmable platform economy. I move between science and practice, and have more than 30 years experience in designing and developing new organizations that solve real society problems, align better with our new context (data economy) and new organization technologies such as blockchain. I am an expert in the field of blockchain, rich data, data logistic and the digital assembly line. I advise on strategic level and work industry agnostic.
Besides my work as a consultant, I am also chairman and fellow of the Weconomics Foundation. Weconomics facilitates the transition to a broader and more sustainable prosperity. Our mission is: ‘Work Less, Achieve More’. Weconomics is a network of hundreds op partners working together to realize a 20-your working week for offices within one generation. I am also founder and fellow of The Institute for New Organizational Thinking, one of the Weconomics spin-offs.
I am also founder and CEO of Weconomics Solutions, located in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, one of the smartest regions in the world. Weconomics Solutions helps organization to use new technologies such as Distributed Ledger Technology and align these new technologies in new organization models such as shared information- and transaction networks.
I studied industrial engineering and management science at the Technical University in Eindhoven. In 1992 I introduced the Harvard Case Method in the Netherlands, developed several master programs for universities and developed two PHD’s research proposals. In 1992 I started Buro Staff Support, my first professional community. Since then I helped dozens of professional communities. In recent years, these communities more and more work with the concept of Blockchain Organizing.
I wrote 9 management books and co-authored 4.
