Elke organisatie, ik zou zelfs durven beweren elk mens, kent de uitdaging te navigeren tussen flexibiliteit en controle. Het is dan ook zinvol om als veranderaar te kunnen bewegen tussen een meer planmatige, controle gerichte aanpak waar nodig en ondersteuning van emergente veranderingen waar mogelijk. Dit vraagt dus ook van de veranderaar de nodige flexibiliteit, zowel in denken als doen.

Looking ahead, the month of March is going to be important for many reasons. We kick off a seminar with a new series of courses, we welcome a fresh cohort of nine students, we invite a selected company of exciting expert speakers, and we are offering two inspiring site visits!
There are seven days of the week, seven colours of the rainbow, seven notes on a musical scale, seven seas and seven continents and now we are entering the 7th year of successful cooperation between NEVI, a global procurement-training organisation, and UMIO.
Having a job is one challenge. Keeping your job is another. What about going to work with a smile on your face every single day? UMIO, the executive branch of Maastricht University School of Business and Economics gathered a broad range of representatives from the professional and public domain and a group of academics, to […]
Dat meer personeel niet leidt tot betere zorgkwaliteit in verpleeghuizen, en dat veel medewerkers de behoeften van bewoners niet altijd adequaat beoordelen; het zijn opvallende uitkomsten van onderzoeken door de Academische Werkplaats Ouderenzorg Zuid-Limburg.

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. He looks at why seemingly clever products and services don’t get used, even if there is a market for them. This process falls under what business call the 20/80 Rule. Twenty percent of all innovations are a success in the market while eighty percent don’t live up to expectations.
Inspiring people to kick off a study, alongside their job. That’s the objective of Road2University. An initiative from the “Brabantse Rotary Meierijstad”, where guests were invited to participate in tasting sessions with a selection of renowned universities. Professors from four learning institutes lined up to cater to a roomful of engaged professionals. “Knowledge is an important factor to stimulate a vital and sustainable society. If only a few were to take a next step by picking up their professional development, we would already be satisfied”, says Kees van Delft from Rotary Meierijstad.
On December 6, a team of students and staff from Maastricht University’s Service Science Factory (SSF) presented the results of a project that looked at how the University and the City of Maastricht can operate more sustainably by working together. The eight-week project, Collaboration Agenda 2030, focused on possible synergies between the two.
Last November, the students of the International Executive Master of Finance and Control (iEMFC) programme visited Maastricht for an intensive and vibrant period of courses, sharing experiences, and… exams. The model of six two-week seminars per two years is an attractive setup for busy professionals; it enables them to better balance work and study, especially for those who are based abroad. This adds to the international character of the iEMFC student population.
