Let me introduce myself: “I help market leaders to navigate digital turbulence, organize rich data, apply blockchain and set up a digital assembly line”. I am an international speaker, strategic consultant, entrepreneur, and (co) author of more than ten management books.
I combine disruptive organization technologies with fundamentally new organizational models. With my teams I developed 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 25 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 Organizing, ans advise on strategic level and works industry agnostic..
Besides my work as a consultant, I am also chairman and fellow of the Weconomics Foundation. Weconomics facilitates the transition to a more sustainable prosperity. It is a network that contributes to the organization of a more sustainability prosperity. The core in this development is the deployment of organization technology such as blockchain. 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 8 management books and co-authored 3.
