L’expérience managériale n’existe pas !

Structure plate, digitalisation, coordination des équipes à distance, désirs de flexibilité et d’autonomie sont les nouveaux défis des managers d’aujourd’hui. Ce qui conditionne le succès de leur rôle est de savoir s’adapter au nouveau contexte plus que l’expérience antérieure : la mise en place du télétravail de façon intensive et précipitée liée à la crise du Covid-19 constitue un exemple significatif en ce sens. Comment alors développer l’expérience managériale ?

D’une expérience commune est né un partenariat autour de la sécurité de l’information

La sécurité de l’information ne concerne pas seulement les systèmes informatiques, ou l’information dans sa seule forme numérique ou électronique, c’est un domaine beaucoup plus vaste qui englobe l’information et la protection de l’information, qu’elle soit physique ou informatisée.
La cybersécurité de son côté se définit comme la capacité de protéger ou de défendre l’utilisation du cyberespace contre les cyberattaques.
Partant de ce postulat, MindForest, cabinet expert en gestion du changement et organisation, et POST CyberForce, fournisseur de services Telecom, intégrateur IT et prestataire de défense en système d’information ont construit un partenariat né de leur expérience commune dans la sensibilisation à la sécurité de l’information dans son acceptation globale.

Is Your Digital Transformation Human?

There have recently been many articles published on the subject of how best to embark on a digital transformation project, which is unsurprising given the current context. Where ever we go, we see examples of digitalization, some successful, some less, but do we stop and ask ourselves how they came about and whether they really fulfilled their original objectives? In addition to this, the history and the culture of the company involved play a major role in such a transformation, but these are factors which may not be apparent to outsiders – perhaps not even to the very clients, who are affected by the changes.
This in turn explains why some projects run aground, as clients “vote with their feet” and transfer their loyalty to another supplier, who seems more aligned to their requirements and expectations. Did something change while the project was already in full swing or were the parameters ill-judged from the outset?

MF Alliance Interview with Olivier Antoine, POST CyberForce

Could you kindly introduce yourself?
I was Chief Information Security Officer and Head of the Advisory team at EBRC from 2008 to 2015, since 2015 I have been in charge of the Information Security Management team within the CyberForce department of POST Luxembourg. The ISM team implements, maintains and monitors the Information Security Management System for all POST Luxembourg and POST Telecom entities. In close collaboration with Risk Management, Personal Data Management, Compliance and Legal, the ISM team focuses on information security risks and their governance. In my job, I like the fact that I constantly need to monitor the evolution of the standards, rules and regulations, which apply to our entities. My activities also allow me to share my knowledge of cyber security with POST employees to raise their awareness of information security.

What motivated you to become part of the MF Alliance?
As soon as I arrived at Post, I was put in touch with MindForest and more particularly Benjamin because I was looking for a partnership with a company that would allow me to carry out fun and entertaining awareness activities. After a few years of collaboration, the idea of a partnership came naturally to us in order to reproduce what we had carried out internally at Post for our respective customers.

Digital Workplace Culture – The Future is Now!

Are you envisioning to go digital with your company? Then you have probably set up a transformation strategy and have it planned through. Well done!
Yet have you also taken your current organisational culture into consideration? If not, then your transition towards a digital future will most probably be in danger.
Did you know that a recent McKinsey (2016) study has shown that the biggest hurdle companies have to face when going digital is actually their own culture?

Old Ways Won’t Open New Doors!

Sometimes the effects of an occurrence are not immediately visible, this does not necessarily make them less important, it just means you need to take time to understand what is happening. Here is an example: on the Galapagos Islands a variety of turtle lays its eggs in the sand, it has done so for thousands of years. Every year hundreds of little turtles hatch and run down to the sea. This is still the case, at face value nothing has changed, until you learn that the temperature of the sand defines how many male and female turtles hatch. Thanks to global warming, this fine balance has been disturbed and now many more females hatch than males – so although you cannot immediately see this difference it is nevertheless there and will have a huge impact on the long-term future of this variety of turtle.

This may also be the case in a workplace context. The recent crisis has sown an environment of fear; fear of the invisible, fear of the unknown, fear of what is to come.
