Having a good strategy is no guarantee for a successful business. The crucial thing is how organizations implement their strategies. And this is something a lot of organizations need to catch up with. In my experience, both, big enterprises as well as small companies, make the same mistakes in implementing. Checking your own organization regularly and self-critically is the only way to discern those and other mistakes in time and to avoid them.

At the end of April, strategy experts from diverse industries met up in Stuttgart, Germany, for the 18th Annual Strategic Management Conference. This year’s focus: future markets developing rapidly. SOLYP as a cooperation partner of the event participated with their own stand. We summarized the exciting talks for you in our follow-up report.

Grant’s and Sandberg’s Option B

Wednesday, 07. March 2018

In his latest book, “Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy”, the organizational psychologist Adam Grant discusses the topic resilience. Co-author is no one less than Facebook-COO Sheryl Sandberg, who after her husband’s unexpected death had to deal with the question: What can you do if option A – in this case sharing her life with her husband Dave – is no longer an option? The answer: Make the most of option B! Numerous personal stories in Sandberg’s and Grant’s book illustrate how this can be achieved. Moreover, these stories are underpinned by profound scientific findings.

Inspiring presentations, exciting future prospects and mulled wine for a good cause: It was already the sixth time for the SOLYP team to invite their customers’ SOLYP3 key users to the pre-Christmas-season in Nuremberg to say thank you for working together so well during the past twelve months. Besides fascinating presentations by our customers Giesecke+Devrient and OSRAM, a great deal of news about the latest SOLYP3 developments was awaiting the participants on December 7th and 8th, 2017. Thanks to the new two day event-setup there was enough time to talk to each other about more than the daily business and learn more about SOLYP.
