COVID19: death mortality rate is much higher in Italy compared to China

March 20, 2020

Italy has the same number of deaths as China but with less than half of the total number of (identified) cases: is the mortality higher in Italy, or are less tests conducted and thus fewer COVID19 positive people identified?

Digital Knowledge Mapping Tools

May 9, 2018

In our chapter “Digital Knowledge Mapping“, we propose that visual mapping is a very effective way of sharing, integrating and creating knowledge and value for collaborative work in organizations. We present online visual collaboration tools that enable digital change in organizations and present the theoretical bases which explains the benefits of visualization for facilitating digital collaboration. We provide illustrative examples and further propose a classification of ten visual tools to show organizations what these tools are useful for, and which criteria are relevant to assess and select visual collaborative tools. We conclude with key learnings and a checklist for the integration of visual collaboration tools in organizations.
