Net-Map Toolbox

Net-Mapping in Mali. In October 2008, I was in Mali with a colleague to document IFAD’s experience on Land and Water Governance through its ongoing interventions in Mali. One of the exciting things I did was to replicate the Ghana’s Net-Map experience in Mali.

Culture: Hofstede on culture embedded in management theories

Joitske Hulsebosch

India, it does not mean it may also work in for instance, Mali, because the national cultural dimension may be very different.

Technology frustrations

Joitske Hulsebosch

I feel a little stupid about these frustrations, as I lived for 3 years in Ke-Macina in Mali and did not even have telephone, but wasn't frustrated. My first frustration was with skype : suddenly my volume was very low. For 2-3 weeks, I tried hard to follow all kind of conversations, but it sounded like very far away, extremely frustrating.

Grown up digital

Joitske Hulsebosch

I've definitely not grown up digital; I almost missed the introduction of digital technologies because I was living in a village in Mali that did not even have telephone or electricity. I read the book 'Grown up digital' by Don Tapscott. I was curious to understand more about the generational differences. So I do think there are differences.
