Most determining women-revisited

While the note about the most determining women had been posted sometime ago, I find it fair to just reminisce it for the sake of history.

The newly appointed Pertamina CEO Karen Agustiawan raised different comments over her next steps for rescuing this state-owned oil company. To me, the assignment probes me to nominate Indonesia women who are inspiring in business and leadership within the last ten years.

The list is obviously subjective, based on my own feeling :) Continue Reading →

Wall St ’08 Auditor Opinion

Short quotes from a friend and nicely said:

We have reviewed the management balance sheet for December 31st, 2008. Basically, from accounting equation rule, assets is positioned on the left side and capital is on the right side. Based on our finding and analysis of the company’s financial position, we conclude that on the right side, there is nothing right and on the left side there is nothing left.

Did you ever feel that every pieces of your footstep in your life at a one pointmay may at least lead you to a wiser and bigger meaning of something? well I maybe one of those who thing that way. I see that mailing list and my reading during the last two weeks lead me to to start understanding how collaborative working can rule the new competition.
I’ve been reading this cool book )Well since this is a repost, I did finished the book though) for about two weeks from the first day I bought it at a bookstore in Bandung. Oh yeah, I forget. Anyway, the book is entitled Wikinomics. Pretty eye catching for an impulse book reader like me by just looking at the cover. Though I read its Indonesian translated version, the message is pretty clear and delivered nicely. It’s a pity that I’m in the middle of my peak time to finalize some stuff for the end of January.
Authored by Don Tapscott and Anthony D. Williams, the book is promising a new look of how information society revolutionizes. It’s not food company vs food company anymore. It’s not also rivalry between two competing value chains. It’s way bigger than that. What happened now is global competition. I’m not talking global in a “multinational” or “enterprise-wide” sense, but global in the sense that all people are powered by the new version of the little e- (e-business, e-commerce, e-money, e-banking) to enhance new innovation, new product and even bigger, a new paradigm. Collaboration, seems to be the most looked up buzzword defining how people are now empowered to create a new kind of working mode, dumping proprietary products and services. Whole range of collaborations now exist to demonstrate the capability of shared-working: blogs, wikis, peering, open source application, and to my knowledge, mailing list. Today’s so-called y’generation must have been familiar with these infrastructures.

In Indonesia, the wave of collaboration is also moving on. I realize the going by looking how community media is having its evolution. From 20 mailing list I have been joining so far, at least now I’m part of some mailing lists that serve for certain domain of knowledge. One community/ mailing list, KOM-TEK, stands for KOMputer TEKnologi, is an Indonesian -based mailing list dedicating for improving the member skill. It is a place where few humble and IS experienced people are dedicating themselves for the development of Indonesia human resources, especially in ERP and other enterprise application. They hold ranges of free ERP trainings given that internet connection is available. As a result, now more people are coming that are competitive for ERP human resources market after they graduate from the training.

Another mailing list, IPOM-APICS are opening opportunity for those who are interested in industrial engineering and its related field. The mailing list is associated with APICS (a non profit organization that offers three internationally recognized professional certification programs:CPIM – Certified in Production and Inventory Management, CFPIM – Certified Fellow in Production and Inventory Management, and CSCP – Certified Supply Chain Professional designation. Since its formation, the mailing list has been able to provide its member access to knowledge in operation management.

Having read this, I guess it’s not impossible to create new innovation from this community controlled area. And that’s what I call the power of community.

Human Inflation

I got this from my fellow Ebi long time ago. Having his approval I feel it’s a kind of responsibility to share humanity value to the rest of the globe. Indeed, the note itself has been gone as it was firstly published using the legendary friendster blog. A very nice article and find it very well moving! Hey Ebi, thx for bringing this up.

One afternoon in 2002, I met a friend by a coincidence. It was right outside the Mandarin Hotel in Sudirman Road. He was just come back from Germany, to see his brother and grandma. Well, he is half Germany. “what’s new from Germany ?” I asked. Continue Reading →

Megadeth’s songs in a song

Guess what a song the lyric I write down here. Yes, this is my lifetime favorite band’s song titled Victory. My personal opinion is, it does not give real story of what a song normally sings about. Rather, Dave purposely wrote this to combine several of his epic songs ever made in this world.

I have deliberately modified the words so there are no songs title are recognized by their capital letter (every words are with initial small letter, except the beginning) or any signing symbols like “. Don’t call yourself Megadeth troop if you can’t the so obviously there. Happy counting :)

If helps, I attach the video too.

(Come on…) Didn’t I make you feel like you were the only man, well yeah, An’ didn’t I give you nearly everything that a woman possibly can ? Honey, you know I did! And each time I tell myself that I, well I think I’ve had enough, But I’m gonna show you, baby, that a woman can be tough.

You’re out on the streets looking good, and baby, Deep down in your heart I guess you know that it ain’t right, Never never never never never never never hear me when I cry at night. Baby, I cry all the time! And each time I tell myself that I, well I can’t stand the pain, But when you hold me in your arms, I’ll sing it once again.

I’ll say come on, come on, come on, come on, yeah take it! Take another little piece of my heart now, baby. (break a..) Break another little bit of my heart now, darling, yeah, (come on…) Have another little piece of my heart now, baby, yeah. Well, You know you got it, child, if it makes you feel good

Imagine the world wide web toward infinitive of identification where everyone can put whatever they want as their internet domain naming address, virtually everything. Now, it is no more imagination. You really can put any name you want, for instance as www.business.ritchi. Or for governmental area, you can simply type www.trade.paris. Or for education purpose, you can use www.children.kindergaten..

After a series of long discussion and debate between internet communities, business groups, and governments, the decision was made on Monday, 20 June 2011 to enter a new order of top-level-domain management ever. Continue Reading →

Commemorating Muki (Arrianto Mukti Wibowo)

##2011 REPOST##

It’s striking me to know the news that you already leave forever from a friend. We did very few communications and, in fact we really never meet in person. One thing for sure though, we share the same interest in information system governance domain. But this unbelievably way of interaction does not hinder me to get a nice impression of how spiritful you are. Since then I claim myself as part of those who keep an eye to your website. You even pave the road and the opportunity for community learning. You open all resources which are somewhat others might have kept in a securely locked top secret folder. This is what exactly I’m doing right now, broadcasting your knowledge to the whole universe. Trust me, I’m learning to follow your move.

Now the Almighty has decided to take you there. I don’t have any information of the cause of your leaving, but anyhow, I would say you are probably better there. God loves you more, and definitely, sending you there is much much best place to go. Please need not worry buddy, because you have stocked your own remembrance with a handful of fruitful, knowledge, which is long lasting and will not fad away or be corroded in any other way.

My thoughts and my heart sincerely are with you and your family. I cherish all the good things you have delivered to the world. Good bye Muki.

BPMN community

Process models are created with the help of process modeling apps. Many process modeling editor are already on the market targeting different aspects of costumers needs. They vary in types of licenses offered, modeling complexity and capability for conformance to standards such as OMG’s BPMN (the latest is 2.0.2). This whole variety of diagramming techniques (or grammars, languages, scripts) require customers to catch up with latest developments.

Have joined this group to keep in touch with current evolving talks and the going in business process management. Have any best practices or experience about BPMN to share? Is there something in the BPMN specification unclear? Do you have a BPMN model you want to discuss? It is a nice BPMN Community place to post all those questions and ideas!

BPMN Self-training

##2011REPOST##

I’ve been quite a while searching for some popular websites or communities where I can learn process model for my study. Learning of something is a lot faster when you have people in the same interests together sharing our stuff. Coping with widely accepted standardized process models such bpmn, it would be best to get skilled by joining such communities in complement of self learning.

So finally I manage to find some useful websites where I can learn better and instantly without having the software downloaded and run in your local laptop. Yes, they are on web and for free (everyone’s need I guess) with some registration to sign up. But they are woth trying. Some of them are hosted by bpmn community for academical and training purpose, and some are run by commercial providers but giving the software for free. There, have fun play around making models and gain more skill in process models with an easy drag and drop feature right in your web browser. Continue Reading →
