Design thinking – just a buzz word or an opportunity for everyone?

The “design thinking” methodology is not new – but in recent years it has made its way into the most diverse business domains. One of the reasons for its success is that it clearly focuses on the end user. In an iterative process, assumptions are continuously questioned in order to gradually approach the “right” solution.

MindForest partenaire du programme Fit 4 Resilience : pour aider les entreprises à se réinventer après la crise COVID-19

Le contexte
La pandémie due au COVID-19 n’est pas seulement associée à des conséquences sanitaires, mais aussi à des conséquences économiques dramatiques. A l’instar de ces voisins européens, le Grand-Duché du Luxembourg apporte un soutien fort aux petites et moyennes entreprises pour faire face à ces difficultés.
C’est ainsi que le programme Fit 4 Resilience a été lancé au Luxembourg. Il s’agit d’un programme de sortie de crise et de repositionnement stratégique, élaboré par Luxinnovation et subventionné par le Ministère de l’Économie.
Ce programme, pour lequel MindForest est un consultant approuvé, cible les PME ayant un siège social au Luxembourg et prévoit une analyse interne et externe des impacts que la crise a provoqué, ainsi qu’une étude de la stratégie actuelle pour en déduire un plan d’actions, or un repositionnement stratégique qui tient compte de la maturité digitale de l’entreprise.

MindForest est heureux de vous inviter à son BrainBreakfast virtuel « Fit4Resilience : Comment reprendre après la crise ? », qui aura lieu le mardi 22 juillet 2020 de 9h00 à 10h00 en ligne !

Management at distance: don’t let the crisis tarnish your leadership!

The issue of remote management is not new, but it has never been so topical.
Indeed, teleworking was already becoming more widespread in many sectors of activity as the difficulties of transport, particularly for cross-border commuters, contributed to accentuating the trend.

REMOTE WORKING, CYBERSECURITY, MANAGEMENT and COVID-19: be more attentive than ever and stick to best practices!

The current crisis and containment situation we are experiencing is generating a flood of stress and anxiety. This may have a negative impact on our professional exchanges and increase our vulnerability to cyber-attacks. There is a real risk that the hindsight and critical thinking we usually display in terms of good cyber practices could be neglected in such circumstances.
