Stefan Merckelbach, philosopher manager, founded Ordinata in 2001. Together with his business partners, he accompanies companies and institutions in their projects to develop collective intelligence and participatory corporate culture. The "participation dynamic" is his specialty, which he passes on in workshops, trainings and individual accompaniment. The Fribourg native with Dutch roots is active in Switzerland and Belgium. His philosophy studies at the Universities of Fribourg and Geneva inspired him. Since then he has become more of a practitioner than a theorist. He had the good fortune to prove himself in a technology company in the early days of the Internet, and then founded Ordinata, a multidisciplinary team that brings together expertise from very different fields under the common goal of "Cultivating community, nurture people." Stefan Merckelbach wrote 2020 A Little Red Book About Source, An Inspiring and Liberating Look at Management and Life Through "Source Principles", which has also been published in English and French.
