I work at Halogen, a consultancy that helps companies to get the most out of the web. My colleagues are specialists on
- web design
- visual problem solving
So, what is ‘visual problem solving’? It is a way of working that designers are familiar with, while the rest of normally aren’t. We make up scenarios about how for instance an organisational change or a new CRM system may hit the the employees or the end users. Halogen’s people decision makers as well as the ‘doers’ understand and influence the change that is going to hit them. Believe it or not, it works impressively well.
My particular take on this is to keep an eye on how our clients can allign intranets with their business goals and corporate culture. The best thing I know is to facilitate processes and activities for people and organisational development. That’s kind of less intranettish and more of HR related.
Previously I have worked at Telenor Group, a telecom company with its head quarter in Oslo, Norway. I designed and delivered leadership development initiatives within the company.
I have done similar things at Schibsted, a European media group. I’ve also been fighting tobacco and promoted gender equality in my early years after university.
I’m a true believer in web 2.0 as a tool for increased collaboration across corporate silos. In case your dying to read more about the potential of the collaborative web, don’t hesitate to check out Wired’s lovely article The See-Through CEO for a dash of inspiration.
