What happens if you put 5000 participants from startups together with like minded corporations and investors in the same room? Magic! But, how easy is it to do magic in the context of business environment? Innovation is not a trick. It’s not based on good luck. It needs hard work and self-discipline. It needs to create value to have business potential. That was one of the topics at STHLM Tech Fest - to build bridges between corporations and the startup community to enable faster innovation and accelerate business growth. More

Autonomous vehicles are a global phenomenon, and the field has taken huge leaps forward in the past 15 years. If a decade ago someone told me that we’d have cars with true self-driving capabilities in 2015, it would have been very hard for me to believe. More

I've discussed before how today's office spaces need to evolve in order to meet the demands of the new, digital way of working. And here at Tieto, we feel it's important to be at the forefront of this. That's why we've recently overhauled our campus at Keilalahti to be more intelligent, more empathic and more in line with the way people work today. More

Corporations are in a need to find new ways to speed up their clock-speed and take input from the startup world for innovation. Both sides have their own strengths. When corporations have resources, existent customer base, processes and industry knowledge, have startups fresh ideas, agility, will-power and growth-minded attitude. More

Historically, every revolution has advanced human civilization. Innovation, new technologies and new value creation potential have increased the quality of life, increased life expectancy and advanced societal wellbeing. The current transformation triggered by digitalization feels – quite rightfully so – almost revolutionary. This does not, however, necessarily mean a huge difference from earlier periods of transformation that businesses and the society likewise have had to come to terms with. More

Executive Vice President of HR, Tieto

I have worked in Human Resources for some twenty years now. This year I have had an exceptional and hugely inspiring agenda as, on top of the day-to-day HR practices, I have been driving forward two super exciting projects: Tieto’s new head office in Keilalahti, Espoo, Finland and the digitalization of our HR processes with Workday’s cloud-based HR solution. What makes these projects so exciting in my mind is that they are enabling us to take the employee experience at Tieto to the next level. More

Advanced technology – robotics and artificial intelligence – is enabling multi-levelled expert organizations to transform into organizations containing only frontline employees, experts and senior managers. This leads to flatter organizations as middle managers are no longer needed. In the future, most present organizational and management models may be thrown on the scrapheap as a result of robotics.

The Secret to a Successful Digital Health Service

We asked entrepreneurs how they take care of their well-being. We were expecting them to reply something related to physical wellness but, what came to their mind were means of coping with stress, work-life balance, and essentially mental wellness. Yet, majority of digital health services provided at the moment concentrate on physical wellness. More

Together with the tenants in HSB Living Lab, we are investigating opportunities and solutions for the homes of tomorrow. Everyone who is taking part in the project is very enthusiastic and that probably makes us more open to new ways of doing things than the average person. That’s why it’s interesting to see the results in the study carried out by SIFO, where we asked the Swedish people what they want from the future living. The way forward goes through practical and intelligent digital solutions. More

Innovation is more than invention: it is the process of applying an idea or invention into practice. The nature of this process is changing. Firms are increasingly specialised and inter-dependent. Innovation is becoming more inter-organisational and non-linear.  More

Technology and the possibilities it creates are changing the world at an unprecedented pace and in ways that were unimaginable just a couple decades ago. At the same, we as people have pretty much the same basic needs as Neanderthals, with all the same joy and fear that comes along with those needs. What will happen to us cavemen in an increasingly digitalized world? More

Design is an exciting journey where you cannot know the end result from the start. In the beginning you may have a direction, but often this will change based on the findings as you go along. It requires patience, adaptability, empathy towards the user and an open mind. At its best, it brings insights for innovation. More
