BI LinkedIn Group Reaches Second Milestone

The Norwegian Business School (BI) reaches its second milestone at LinkedIn. With more than ten thousand registered participants the BI LinkedIn group remains the largest academic online group in Norway.

BI LinkedIn moves beyond ten thousand participants. With 65% of its demographic population in Oslo, it appears the hub of current and former students is located in the capital of Norway. As the group increases in numbers the amount of discussions (green) and comments (blue) are gradually - ever so slowly - growing in frequency.

Comments (blue) and discussions (green) gradually growing in frequency at BI LinkedIn.

Today you'll find that almost every significant news coming from The Norwegian Business School is published via this channel. Smart way to stay up to date and tuned in on lifelong and continuing education from what I believe is the best academic institution for "a business mind set" in the Nordics.

The 4 Disciplines of Execution

Finally, "The 4 Disciplines of Execution (4DX)" book is out. I've been waiting for this reading experience since the day I got certified and met with its authors in the U.S.

Sooner or later you'll find yourself in a situation where you need to deliver some kind of results together with other people. It's called leadership. However, more specifically it's leadership split in two key areas: (1) Strategy and (2) Execution.

Strategy is having the guts to make a well thought out choice. Execution is following through on that choice. Hard? Difficult? Challenging? A lot of failure? Absolutely!

The art of execution is in screaming demand. Look no further. 4DX has arrived.

All 4DX Support Media In One Place
As you go through the pages of 4DX you'll find that it has a number of QR codes that bring you to case studies and other support material. As a help to find inspiration reading the 4DX book and to better grasp its powerful and focused message and methodology I've collected every reference to all publically available resource in this one post (in order of appearance) with three embedded video clips.

One of the authors of 4DX, Chris McChesney, is now on Vidar's list of great people!
