The most exciting project is always the one you are about to start!

I am David Sallinen - in charge of WAN-IFRA's training and consultancy programmes for those media looking to accelerate their digital strategies, optimise the return from print, and introduce new editorial and sales dynamics.

This blog - TheNextStep - deals with all the initiatives we embark on for media as well as taking a look at the emerging landscapes in technology and markets.

We are living in a time of unprecedented transition in which each organisation has to adapt within the confines of its own abilities, legacy and limitations. In some cases it is proving necessary to completely reinvent ourselves.

That process begins with multiple pilot project (new products and services, new processes, new skills, new attitudes...) which is what I intend to share with you via the blog.

The most exciting project is always the one yet to begin, and this blog is dedicated to professionals engaged in transforming their media organisations whether editorially or commercially so as to share notes and compare best practice. I will also be mentioning the "Innovation Day" events we organise for media professionals and entrepreneurs who are busy rethinking the shape of media.

I welcome your remarks and suggestions and don't hesitate to contact me with them or to call on our expertise.
