Today I had the great joy of together with consultants, academics and practitioners participate in a seminar day arranged by Svenska Projektakademin (in which I am a board member – not bored – too). We discussed a range of topics but the one that was perhaps most interesting (to me that is) was the fact that large organizations are re-doing their project models. By doing that they notice a higher employee turnover as a result of boredom. This would of course be interesting to study in relation to the insights we have made on Everest.
The magazine “Chef” wrote yet a article about boredom. This time it was slightly more extensive and published both on the web and in the magazine itself. Pretty fantastic what kind of coverage this idea has contributed with.
…is now available for download from European Management Journal. In the article we investigate how emergency call centers make sense of their input using non-verbal cues. Pretty interesting if we get to say it ourselves! You find a link here.
The magazine Arbetsliv is the largest magazine for working environment issues in Sweden. Recently they published a interview with yours truly on the research on boredom and its implications for managers regardless of business. You find the article here.
Svenska Dagbladet is collaborating with the magazine Chef. Chef is making another piece on our research on boredom. As part of that they are co-publishing the article in SvD. I am very happy to see that our research and efforts are making such a impact in the media. Hopefully someone reflects and puts it into action! You find the link to the article, here. And.. just so you know… NO, I did not climb Everest. But kind of wish I did.. Then again, it is never too late!
