    Leadership for research

    In research-oriented pre-development projects, with no specific product objectives, leadership is crucial. It is particularly important that focus is on individuals rather than the group.

    Arriving at Kuala Lumpur

    This is already my third Friday at Kuala Lumpur. The excitement of going to Malaysia the warm place and having some Asian-stomach-tailored food is finally calming down, and I thought it is a good time to write another blog. The journey started on April 18th, when I flew from Stockholm to London. Nine of my […]

We received the results from our employee survey and that always brings new energy to the continuous improvement works going on within all areas.

    Long time – No posts

    Long time, no posts. Sorry about my absence but I have just been super busy at work. Right now both of my big projects have been in two intensive, but different, loops which have required a lot of attention. However, one needs to take the time to stop for a few seconds and take time […]

    Global Technical Support

    I started to blog 2014 when I travelled to Russia for supporting them during the Olympic games in Sochi. The time has been flying away and it is now time for me to thank everyone and take a break, to focus on other areas. I hope that I can come back to the blogging when […]
