Goodbye Strålfors - Day 11


Today is a sad day for me. After a little over 3 years as managing director for Strålfors Information Logistics A/S in Denmark my tenure is coming to an end. End January I'll leave the company and look for new challenges. I won't elaborate on this decision right now, but just say that it has been three fantastic years where we took an ailing company in a industry facing a tough time and turned it all around into a profitable company with a bright future. 

Yesterday I signed the biggest contract ever for Strålfors in Denmark and with that contract on board many exiting opportunities will arise for Strålfors and all the good and competent people working there. 

The role as country manager has been redefined as of January 2012 and my task has been completed. The ailing patient is doing well and a very capable management team can manage Strålfors in Denmark from this point. Good luck to all of my dear Strålfors Denmark colleagues. It has been a privilege working together with you and I'm proud of what we have achieved.

The photo I took with my iPhone today. It is an old building called "Templet" in Lyngby. I took the liberty and exchanged the word "Templet" with "EXIT.  Strålfors has been my temple for the past 3 years - now it is time to look for a new temple.

X-Teams written by Deborah Ancona and Henrik Bresman raises an interesting question already on the front cover.
"Why do teams fail?"
The topic of the book is how to build teams that lead, innovate, and succeed. I'll write a short review as soon as I've read it.

SnapScan 9000 - be prepared for a laugh

Can you guess who the nice young man is in the image? It is me as a high school student - important years - where my passion for photography really took off. My god - 35 years has passed since those happy years.

I have just scanned b/w negatives and color slides from these years, and it has been hilarious to see the pictures again. Since many of the images are not something to boast about, the mission was only to get the old negatives and slides converted to digital format. Since I have many pictures from my analog years this conversion process must also go quickly.

Therefore I have just tested JOBO Snapscan 9000. It took med just 5 minutes to unpack it and set up. The scanning process is extremely simple. You install an SD card in the scanner, and then feed negatives or slides into the scanner by the help of various rails and frames - one at a time. The scan process only takes 4 seconds per negative / slide. The scanner has some simple correction options such as built-in color corre…
