De trends voor 2013 en dit decennium - Melvin Captein @MCaptein

De trends voor 2013 en dit decennium - Melvin Captein @MCaptein | Mapmakers |

2013 wordt volgens het trendwatchersduo Richard en Lieke Lamb het jaar van de balansburger.


"We gaan naar een balanseconomie. Eerst zei niet iedereen last van de recessie te hebben, maar nu is deze toch wel alom aanwezig. Mensen accepteren het nu, in plaats van te ontkennen of zich er tegen te verzetten, en passen zich aan."


Daar horen een aantal trends bij, volgens 'de Lamb-jes'. Lees hier wat u te wachten staat, in ieder geval tot 2020, wanneer de huidige economische overgang volgens hen ongeveer afgerond zal zijn.

Balanseconomie en de 10 trends staan eigenlijk qua begrippen haaks op elkaar. Het wordt een niet financieel georienteerde samenleving volgens deze trendwatchers....

Ik denk dat deze trendwatchers het hier over de balanseconomie van de huishoud-portemonnee hebben. Zelfs de economie wordt zo op een menselijke maat gesneden ...

I Draw Pictures All Day - Alma Hoffmann

I Draw Pictures All Day - Alma Hoffmann | Mapmakers |

   What does it mean to be a doodler, to draw pictures all day? Why do we doodle? Most of all, what does it mean to our work? It turns out that the simple act of scribbling on a page helps us think, remember and learn.

   Even before a child can speak, they can draw pictures. It is part of their process of understanding what’s around them. They draw not just what they see, but how they view the world. The drawing or doodle of a child is not necessarily an attempt to reflect reality, but rather an attempt to communicate their understanding of it.


   In 2009, I came across a book titled The Back of the Napkin by Dan Roam. Roam is a business strategist and founder of Digital Roam, a management-consulting firm that uses visual thinking to solve complex problems. He uses a simple approach to solving problems visually. Every idea is run through five basic questions to encourage engaged thinking and to ensure a meaningful meeting. The process takes the acronym SQVI^. S is for simple or elaborate, Q is for qualitative or quantitative, V is for vision or execution, I is for individual or comparison, and ^ is for change or status quo.

   Roam says:“What if there was a way to more quickly look at problems, more intuitively understand them, more confidently address them, and more rapidly convey to others what we’ve discovered? What if there was a way to make business problem solving more efficient, more effective, and — as much as I hate to say it — perhaps even more fun? There is. It’s called visual thinking, and it’s what this book is all about: solving problems with pictures.”

Social Business Design [Infograph] - Mark Smiciklas @intersection1

Social Business Design [Infograph] - Mark Smiciklas @intersection1 | Mapmakers |

   A Social Business is like a city. Build yours one neighbourhood at a time. Social business design – adopting the use of social technology, flattening corporate structure and shifting towards less siloed operational models – helps organizations achieve business objectives as the marketplace becomes more digitally connected.

   Social business draws on trends in technology, work, and society. Companies should care about social business because they can improve business outcomes. The core principles touch on all areas of a business, whether for business-to-customer engagement, employee-to-employee collaboration, or supply chain optimization. Making social business work requires focus on a company’s culture, connections, content exchanges, and measurement and analytics.

   A post recently published by Dave Gray really helps crystallize the idea of social business design. In The Connected Company Gray uses a series of “city” metaphors to clearly explain how a social business is a “complex, adaptive system.” His post inspired the following information design. My goal here is to present a visual interpretation of these ideas aimed at building high level understanding and prompting discussion.
