Setting yourself apart by your organisational culture is a key to success, but what happens when that culture is at odds with businesses you work with?
Organisational culture is undoubtedly a popular topic among academics and executives alike. And although there has been a lot of research and discussions on organisational culture, there has been significantly less interest in the concept of culture clash.
A strange phenomenon, given the fact that all theory and anecdotes teach us that every organisation has its own unique culture. So, how can companies interact and do business with each other in the contemporary business world if their organisational cultures are different and quite often at odds?

Blockchain technology and its potential impact on commerce and society.
As technology permeates through everything that businesses do, little is left the same. In some cases it's only the tools that are different, but sometimes new technology serves to disrupt and transform underlying processes and entrenched ideas. This is certainly what's happening to the financial sector. 'FinTech' is helping financial transactions become more efficient and customer-friendly and no more so than in the case of the blockchain.
If you've paid for anything using Bitcoin your transaction will be recorded in the blockchain and it is the technology that allows for the digital exchange of value without an intermediary.
