If I told you I had a simple way to make your company 9% more productive, right now, for free, you’d probably call me crazy. So don’t take my word for it – instead let’s look at the data. 

After studying the productivity of 308 companies' performance over 22 years, Dr. Kamal Birdi of the University of Sheffield found that there was only one factor that consistently lead to gains in performance: empowering employees. Companies that gave their employees freedom by doing things like transferring decision-making power from managers to employees saw better results than those that didn’t.

So when you’re wondering how to hit this quarter’s target, make sure you look for ways to put more power in employees’ hands. The more they feel like they own the place, the more driven they’ll be for it to succeed. #workrules

Looks fun
 
Here's how to make that flying Speeder Bike toy you always wanted — and with a wireless camera that lets you see through the Stormtrooper's helmet.
I got into FPV (First Person Video) multi-rotor racing a few months ago. The fast, low level flying instantly reminded me of the Endor chase scene from Return of the Jedi. This project was an obvious choice to combine my interest and experience in RC (remote control) flight with my …

Good points about b2b marketing
Findings from Google and Millward Brown Digital debunk many widely held beliefs about the B2B buying process. How will this affect your marketing strategy?

I constantly hear how enterprises are poor at innovation, bad at product development and unresponsive to business change. So it begs the question, why do so many organizations get it...

Monoliths are Bad Design... and You Know It by @capnkrump #microservices #architecture http://thght.works/1F5Bl1G
Tightly coupled software presents the biggest difficulty when teams are looking to extend or change systems. As systems get larger, coupling limits the scope of change and self perpetuates. The easiest way to extend tightly coupled code is often to weave in even more interdependence.

Story
Tagline
Software developer, technology enthusiast
Introduction
Hi! My name is Svein Morten and I create software both for fun and profit.

I also create software just for fun and like to explore various programming languages, development platforms and environments.

At work I'm using a stack of different languages and platforms including Microsoft .Net/C#, SQL Server, SharePoint, BizTalk, HTML, JavaScript, NetExpress Cobol, IBM DB2 and some other stuff as well.

Previously, I've been working with a lot of different technologies like C, C++, Java, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Qt, Visual Basic, Linux, Unix, Tandem and the list goes on. I also like to program and dabble in dynamic languages like Ruby, Python, Scala and Groovy.

I'm also interested in software architecture, agile/lean methodologies, mobile devices, social media and software tools. I also tinker a bit with hardware using Arduino. I try to blog and tweet about these things, but not as often as would have liked to. If you get me talking about this, you'll notice it's hard for me to stop.

On the personal side, I'm a dad and husband. I like cycling, swimming and hiking to keep in shape.
