Coming September, AlumniOS and ING will host an event about the application of Lean theory in the Service Sector. The event will take place in Amsterdam, close to the Bijlmer Arena station in one of ING’s offices, and will feature a short recap on Lean theory, just in case your minds need to be refreshed. Furthermore, the program will feature a short case assignment, which we are working on at the moment.
We will start at 18.00h with sandwiches, the formal part will start at 19.00h and we will finish with drinks at 21.00 - 21.30h. More information will soon be available, once we have finalized the program in cooperation with ING. Stay tuned!
On April 10th, AlumniOS organized an event in cooperation with the Department of Organization & Strategy (Tilburg University) and CbusineZ, a Health Innovation and Investment Fund of CZ.
The event started with drinks and sandwiches, after which Eric Dooms updated participants on recent developments in the field of research, education at Tilburg University in general and the department of Organization & Strategy in particular. The night’s theme was Corporate Venturing, a topic that was subsequently introduced from a theoretical perspective by Stijn van den Hoogen and Ruud Sneep. While Stijn introduced a theoretical framework based on literature, Ruud elaborated on the role of CERC, the Corporate Entrepreneurship Research Center, established in 2012 by the Tilburg Center of Entrepreneurship. He explained how CERC tries to connect science and practice on Corporate Entrepreneurship and shared some real life business cases. Ruud’s talk proved to be a nice introduction to the main speaker of the night, Joep de Groot.

On June 19, 2012, AlumniOS, in cooperation with Nolan, Norton & Co. (NNC), organized a theme-night about ‘Competing on Information’.
Set on the beautiful estate of “De Breul” in Zeist, we were welcomed by Mark Wisbrun (Senior Consultant at NNC) and Camiel Maas (Consultant at NNC and Board member of AlumniOS). After a short drink with sandwiches and an introduction round, Mark and Camiel kicked-off and introduced the theme to the audience. It became clear that organizations increasingly see the value potential of (existing and new) information within their companies. Hands-on examples of a.o. Tesco, TomTom, Bol.com, FairPayInsurance and Foursquare were discussed. Read the rest of this entry »
