Changing behaviour, one nudge at a time

How can we make the right decisions as individuals and groups in an increasingly dynamic and complex world? It’s a big question for a 2-hour session, but that was the point of this UMIO Breakfast Booster, to concentrate all the key ingredients of people, ideas, academic expertise and motivation into one dynamic infusion to gain relevant insights which can be applied to the challenges faced in real-life work situations.

Edward Huizenga inaugurated as Professor

On 1 February, Edward Huizenga accepted his appointment to the Business Practice Chair for Strategy, Innovation, and Change at Maastricht University’s School of Business and Economics. Dr. Huizenga has always been fascinated by iconic companies that come up with innovations that are a success.

Twenty percent of all innovations are a success in the market while eighty percent don’t live up to expectations.
