Organizational management, data and models.

[Nederlandse versie]

After I studied Applied Physics, I got interested in human cooperation. During the time I worked as management consultant, I studied how people did (not) cooperate effectively. I researched topics like communication, language, cognition, systems thinking, group dynamics, emotions, etcetera.

Slowly but surely I became an expert in questions regarding managing, changing and stabilizing organizations and the people working therein. Nowadays, I use this knowledge in my work as business analyst focused on organizational management, data and models.

On this site you'll find what I've done, what I've read and what I've written.

Organizations keep people busy, occasionally entertain them, give them a variety of experiences, keep them off the streets, provide pretexts for story-telling, and allow socializing. They haven't anything else to give.
