In the best case, the typical ‘business theater’ in classical companies is a waste of potential and working time. In the worst case, however, it can also be dangerous for the whole organization. If employees are empowered to think for themselves and take on responsibility and initiative, they will make wise decisions and contribute to a more modern, flexible organization, collaborating more closely with customers, and be better equipped to handle complexity. What keeps you from promoting a culture of empowerment and using statements like “I intend to…” in your company?

Earlier this year, John Wetenhall, Head of Strategy & Operations Manager visited us here in Wiesbaden, immediately after Atlassian Summit Europe ended.

Email continues to be the main medium for digital communication in many companies, and at the same time is one of the biggest time wasters and productivity killers. Email is fast, convenient, and normal – and is often abused to a greater degree than any other digital communications technology.

//SEIBERT/MEDIA has been working on intranets since almost the very beginning of the company in 1996. One of the first intranets was also an extranet. Today, we are quite successful in marketing our intranet solution Linchpin. I am proud of the fact that huge corporations with thousands of employees in dozens of different countries are using our solution and technology in order to collaborate better. We are now preparing the marketing of a standardized solution for extranets. Want to learn more?

It’s useful to always extend the 12-month support period for your Atlassian software – you receive regular updates with bug fixes, new features, improvements, and security patches. But when should you extend, and when should you upgrade? Look a little into the future, if your user numbers are increasing it may make more sense to upgrade!

It was a full house at our Wiesbaden office, with many important customers, great discussions, interesting lectures, and seamless organization, all of which created a successful experience with plenty of positive feedback.
