HPO – New revamped HPOcenter website launched with miltilingual support – High Performance Organization

As some of you might know, I’m very interested in High Performance Organizations (HPO) and the characteristics of these companies. In my opinion it’s something every company should strife for.

As such, I’m happy to inform you that the HPO center has launched their new revamped website with multilinual support. The supported languages are:

  • Dutch (Nederlands)
  • English
  • French (Français)
  • German (Deutsch)
  • Spanish (Español)

So if you’re interested in the new design, or if you’re just curious about what HPO is about, please visit the website: http://www.hpocenter.com.

Notes:

  • It seems that even though multilingual support has been added to the website, not all content has been translated (yet).
  • If you have any feedback (both positive and negative) about the website, please let the HPO center know.
  • Also if you want to keep track of new developments regarding HPO, you can use the following resources:

Manage bookmarks / favourites website links

Everyone has their favourite web sites they use. These are used for different purposes and some are used more frequently than others.

To organize and share my own favourites / bookmarks, I’ve created a sharepoint list:
http://bjornhouben-web.sharepoint.com/Lists/Links that I will be updating continuously. If you’re unfamiliar with how to filter a sharepoint list, please check my previous post.

Other options to manage your own (personal) favourite web site links include:

  • Using the built-in synchronisation with browsers like Firefox or Google Chome.
  • Create and use a personalized start page like by example Netvibes and Protopage. These also provide options to include other resources like by example RSS feeds, weather predictions, etc. I am currently using iGoogle, but that will cease to function Q4 2013 unfortunately.

During the creation of my own list I came across kadaza.com and kadaza.nl, which also contains a great collection of categorized web sites. You can choose the main category on the left hand side after which you can further drill down by choosing subcategories on the right side.

I hope it is useful to you and should you have some great sites I’ve missed, please mention them in the comments section.

My RSS feeds for keeping up with ICT news/developments (Microsoft, VMware, Cloud and gadgets)

Currently, there are many technological advancements taking place every day. To keep up with them is already very hard. To make it a bit easier I use RSS feeds to quickly filter what I think might be of importance to me.

A list of the RSS feeds I currently use can be found here , but you can also download an XML export of my RSS feeds here for easy import to your preferred RSS reader (assuming it supports XML import). I also advise you to check Microsoft’s RSS feed index so you can customize it to your own needs.

I personally use Google Reader for my RSS feeds because then my RSS feeds will be accessible from everywhere as long as I have a browser and an internet connection. When you are often on the road without an active internet connection, a dedicated client with cached articles from the RSS feed might also come in handy.

PS: The Microsoft blog rss feed had many articles added daily and can be hard to keep up with, but you can pretty quickly weed out duplicate articles and articles in foreign languages.

I hope this has been helpful to you.
