From a digital pioneer…
I am digital pioneer in France, my adopted country. I was the originator and co-author of the first non-technical book about internet and intranet to be published in France in 1996 – over 20 years ago. L’avantage Internet pour l’entreprise was published by business publisher Dunod and reprinted twice. I’ve never stopped since then!
I have conducted annual surveys on the internal digital work environments of organizations since 2006. The 10th annual survey report was published in November 2016: The Organization in the Digital Age.
Approximately 300 organizations participate each year.
I have advised organizations in Europe and North America on their internal digital strategies for 18 years. I have conducted over 120 intranet/digital workplace projects for over 60 global organizations. (more…)

I’m sure my grandfather, who bought the first John Deere tractor in his part of Nebraska many years ago, may have met one of these salespeople! (more…)
