Blog Parade Remote Work

It's the year 2002. The ProjectWizards are a network of professional project managers in the start-up phase. During the first job interviews with interesting candidates I learn a hard lesson. I simply can't offer any interesting after-work experience with the Melle location. Another candidate is no less brutal: he has worked in Hamburg, Berlin and Düsseldorf so far. Melle simply does not fit into his CV. My objection that SAP employees don't mind living in Walldorf was simply answered; when we're as big as SAP, I'll be able to invite him for another interview. He stood up and left.

In the following weeks, the idea was born to simply let the employees work from their favourite place. The home office idea for ProjectWizards was born.

Of course, as a young entrepreneur (the term entrepeneur only became modern later) I got advice from all sides on what to do next. But the main focus was this tenor: Close the shop right away. That won't work. So you can't control your people, etc.

Gartner Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2020


Every year the research and consulting company Gartner publishes studies regarding today's most relevant technologies. The study's objective is to provide a compact overview of which trends already exist and what the next steps of development will look like. The trends for 2020 are collected under the theme: "people-centric smart spaces". These are technologies that will significantly change our behaviour and our living space. Such changes will also serve as the basis for disruptions in the business context over the next 5-10 years. Accordingly, we do not only look at current trends out of curiosity, but also try to align the strategic development of Merlin Project with these trends. In the following, the trends for 2020 are briefly presented and broken down to their essence.
