Changeover by October 1st, 2007

Many many nights, weekends and several vacation days spent for an idea and a belief during the last eight months. The belief that people count more than organizations, processes and tasks do. If you ever have the fortune to find professionals, friends you like to work with, a team standing firmly behind a vision and withstanding all the turbulences of a changing organization and the uncertainty of the future, well, then do all the humanly possible to build an environment where you can grow and successfully progress together. First find who is going to participate to the endeavor (first who then what, as Jim Collins stated some years ago) and then (together) decide how to organize and move.

It has been amazing to see how every single team member has taken his responsibility in making sure that the customer obligations are fulfilled without reductions in quality and quantity, while preparing for the future. A good portion of self-organization has emerged, which has been a prerequisite to reach the outstanding results of the last months, despite the heavy burden of multiple roles covered by every individual.

I simply and lowly want to thank all my old an new colleagues, who spent the last couple of years working with me at Helvetia and "ecenter solutions" and now joining our new company innoveo solutions, which is privately held by the team itself. There is nothing like the feeling of being a part of such a great team. I'm honored and proud to be with this team and I'm looking forward to interesting, challenging, successful times. A special thank goes to Didier Beck. Seven years of collaboration. have shown that there is a very high level of trust and a deep friendship, which is the base of our company. Here also: excellent teamwork and complementary skills!

I wish US, the old, new team all the best, satisfaction and success in the new setup at:

The final countdown...

Friday, February 09, 2007



Well, OK, of course, you may say that I'm not neutral - and you're totally right. Nevertheless I'd like to introduce a newcomer Swiss band playing Pop music. These guys are creative like crazy and even though the band is very young, they are doing nice progresses day by day.

Luca (lead vocal), Ivan (guitars - my son ;-), Thomas (keyboard) and Dave (drums) are working on some dozens of songs that they'd like to perfect and select for their second CD. As they have a financing issue, you may support them by buying their demo CD including three new songs. With your gently contribution you help these young people cultivating their hobby and live their dream.

Listen to their newest demo song:
Spring of my Life

...find more songs on their website

...and contribute by buying their Demo CD "It takes two to tango" which will be available soon!
