Interview with Gunter Dueck, mathematician, author, philosopher and future thinker

Anyone experiencing Gunter Dueck, the long-standing IBM manager, mathematician, author and star guest at many conferences and congresses, live for the first time, may wonder if they are hearing satire or simply harsh reality. We also experienced two different sides to him in the interview prior to his keynote speech at the exhibition Zukunft Personal. One moment he may be chuckling at his own explanations and in the next breath, he will be deeply philosophical. We talked to him about why it makes sense to have network-organisations today and what metawork means in human resource management. We hope you enjoy reading it! >>MORE>>

Interview with Stephanie Cherrin, Investment and Program Manager for hub:raum Tel Aviv (Deutsche Telekom AG)

Tel Aviv has an impressive start-up scene: new businesses seem to shoot up like mushrooms. Around 1,000 of the total 3,400 start-ups in Israel are located in Tel Aviv – one start-up per 431 inhabitants (as at 2015). So Israel’s boom town is an interesting “innovation playground” for several international companies. One of them is Deutsche Telekom. We talked to Stephanie Cherrin, Investment and Program Manager for hub:raum, a kind of start-up network of the telecommunications company. She explains why Tel Aviv is a paradise for entrepreneurs and how established enterprises can profit from a cooperation with (Israeli) start-ups.  >>MORE>>

Interview with Dan Price, Founder and CEO of Gravity Payments

While some people live at subsistence levels in spite of long and hard working hours, others are rewarded handsomely for similar tasks. Equal pay for equal work is rarely reality. A businessman in the United States refused to accept this and came up with a “crazy” idea: he renounced his million-dollar salary to pay each of his employees at least 70,000 dollars. With his announcement he unleashed a broad debate on the extent to which money is a motivating factor and whether profit as the unique corporate goal has become obsolete. We spoke with Dan Price, CEO of Gravity Payments, who is one of the keynote speakers at Zukunft Personal, the HRM Expo, in Cologne this October. >>MORE>>
