Move your Ass ! - Early Adopters vs. The Ancient Crowd



I think the text above says everything or shows a chronology about innovation and future of work. Even if the crowd got it, it's not an innovation anymore.
So if you want to prevent these circle, adopt as early as the new info is on the market as well as better tools are available.
I believe, that for experts it takes less than 24 hours, for example, to check if e.g. a software is smarter and better than the old one you use. You do not have to wait 3 years until you will roll it out to your people. Smart and agile work does not have a 5 years plan, this is the big mistake, all companies do at the moment because they are now in my 2011.
As a headhunter you need to be fast and need to have actual data all the time, this is important for us and this is why my workflow is so, that I can change all my workflows and databases within 1-3 days totally and emigrate into any other system, which is smarter, than the system I use now. This is a new way of thinking but impossible with the old SAP, Oracle, Salesforce, Microsoft systems and thinking of IT workflows.
So think also about, what happens, if the internet is down for more then 24 hours or 7 days or 1 month in case of a global blackout. Is your data safe and also offline available e.g. o print?
These are the future topics we should have in mind, as well as fast adoption and if learning is no problem for you, as everybody is yelling now on social media, how he/she loves life-long-learning (which should be normally) then it's also not a problem to learn a new, smarter IT system within 3 days.
Maybe it's a human problem, that Innovations become Trends when the Innovation is over, I don't know, but I think it should be possible to start the thing in the second they are available. It's possible, when the new iPhone comes out, that people wait in a row and buy it, so why we can't adopt this behavior regarding work, workflows, innovation, new tools, IT, smart work? Yes, it's more work and if you just believe in a 9-5 job, then you won't do that extra mile, which would costs you maybe 1-week extra work, even if you work smarter after this innovation.
For me, it's now funny to see, when I went through my blog posts from 4-5 years ago when I see that 90% of that, what I was believing in during this time, is now the new normal.
Maybe it's just a German and Austrian problem/habit, that people here are resistant against innovation and change in the beginning and turn into enthusiastic ambassadors 3-5 years later.
So, think over this, when you really want to be innovative, and not just the backbone of the US and Asia, where the innovation starts. We in Western Europe (Germany/Austria/Switzerland) are not like the German Democratic Republic with a 5 years plan or are we? So, when I see my friends and colleagues from CEE and SEE, I think the western part of Europe can learn a lot from these people regarding early adoption and just doing it. This is why smart companies have an office since at least 8 years in Bucharest, Warsaw, Vilnius, Sofia, Budapest, Prague, etc pp., especially in the IT industry.
So, start adopting faster and do not celebrate innovations on social media, which exist for 8 years, but only you were too late, until you got it, that it's an innovation.
Innovation is hard work and needs the courage to do it then, when it comes up, not 5 years later. :-):-p

The Generic Breadhunter Ads 2017 - Another New Book

This is a Manifesto of Generic Advertising from the last 5 years, the generic Breadhunter Ad Campaign as Coffee-Table-Art-Book from November 2017. It's not an important book, but it's essential, if you are sick of the generic marketing campaigns everywhere on social media and in print.
This picture book is a inspiration to be more creative in social media ads and marketing as well. We have to stop this generic bullshit and concentrate on real, intelligent ads plus on our work too.  I would love to see my campaign on billboards around the world, :-p, maybe someone will do it... Find more Information here. Greetings from Vienna, Thomas Zahlten PS: Available from 27th of November 2017 at Amazon and everywhere in bookstores.

BREADHUNTER's Smart Work: Automatisches, sicheres Cloud-Backup über viele Plattformen hinweg für KMU & EPU

Hier ist sie wieder, eine kleine IT-Tool-Session, auch wenn mich dieser Bereich mehr zwischen 2012 und 2015 beschäftigt hat, als ich meine Workflows smarter machte, nachdem ich 13 Jahren mit Oldschool MS Office Prozessen herumgewurschtelt hatte. Seit gut 1 Jahr befasse ich mich wieder intensiver damit in Hinsicht auf die bald geltende DS-GVO und da sich ja Software dauernd verändert. Gerade als EPU oder KMU sind diese smarten Tools so wichtig, da sie einem hohe IT Kosten, Nerven und Zeit ersparen. (Sorry, liebe Big-Softwareanbieter, aber in Zeiten wie diesen gilt nicht mehr der Spruch, den ich vor 6 Jahren am Forum Alpbach von einem CEO eines österreichischen Konzerns hörte: "Wir arbeiten 6 Monate für das Finanzamt und die restlichen 6 Monate für SAP, Oracle oder wie eben diese großen Oldschool-Software-Anbieter alle heißen. :-p) Gerade als EPU oder KMU sind IT-Infrastrukturkosten(nur Software!), die pro User insgesamt und maximal zwischen 200 € und 400 € pro Monat liegen, völlig a…

Der Arbeitsmarkt für 50+ - Was falsch läuft und was wir ändern könnten, wenn wir es nur wollen

Folgender Artikel, derer es viele gibt seit einiger Zeit, brachte mich wieder zum Thema 50+ Generation und dem Umgang damit im Berufsalltag. https://diepresse.com/home/Innenpolitik/Wirtschaftsnachrichten/5497568/Jobgipfel_Schlechtes-Deutsch-weniger-Lohn Mich ärgert es seit längerem, dass ich Lebensläufe von Top Qualifizierten und Erfahrenen Personen bekomme der 50+ Generation und diese dann nirgendwo in Jobs unterbringen kann. Deren Fazit ist meist nach 6-12 Monaten Arbeitsuche die Selbständigkeit, die auch in dieser Altersgruppe wieder boomt, nicht nur bei den gefeierten Startups, die gerne VC Kapital gegen die Wand fahren, aber ne 'Geile Zeit' dabei hatten. Jung, unerfahren, billig und gefügig scheint mehr im Arbeits-Trend zu liegen, als Erfahren, sich seines Wertes bewusst und dafür etwas teurer am Arbeitsmarkt. Und genau das Läuft falsch momentan!  Aber woher kommt dieses ungeschriebene Gesetzt, dass man für eine 50+ Fachkraft, lieber zwei billige, willige Junge nimmt? Liegt es d…
