About 'Great leaders mix and match'
Get ready for the future with the ideaDJ strategy
Our world is changing rapidly. We are running out of space, time and nature. More than ever, we need solutions that provide an elegant answer to several challenges simultaneously. Single-point solutions are not enough. Complex problems require truly combined solutions and next level cross-border collaboration.
Great Leaders Mix and Match is a guide to becoming an ideaDJ: a leader who creates impactful and beautiful combinations which add real value.
This book is a call to all leaders to make that step, to embed themselves as ideaDJs within their organisations and communities.
The book is a manifesto for more beautiful combinations in (business) life. The world faces complex challenges and these challenges can only be resolved by mixing and matching ideas. The beauty here lies in the elegance of the solutions which actually make the world a better place and how we are able to solve multiple challenges in one go. Think of a waste incarnation plant which doubles as ski hill. Or think of new solutions for care: an elderly home, combined with a children day care and an animal farm, where all parties benefit from the combination. These are real cases where the total (combination) is clearly more valuable than the sum of its parts.
This book serves as a manual and toolbox and outlines how leaders can become ‘ideaDJs’. A perfect ideaDJ mix consists of beauty, value and impact. By creating beauty, the solutions have more elegance in their implementation. It adds more value to all stakeholders, not just the shareholders. And finally, the solutions create more sustainable and scalable impact.
Besides many exciting examples, Great Leaders Mix and Match contains a clear methodology and tool kits. The main focus is to help (business) leaders to change the mindset and attitude of the people around them. It also invites leaders to provide the tools to their employees so that they can also become ideaDJs and foster an innovation culture.

Having known Ramon Vullings for many years I can only recommend his book, Great Leaders Mix and Match. Thanks to two real seminars organised by Ramon I successfully tested the art of mixing and matching great finance leaders (age, management style, gender, nationalities) and getting the best out of them — they became my ideaDJs — to start a radically new approach in performance: moving completely away from the traditional budget to rolling forecasts and target setting.
- Mel de Vogue, CFO — Etex Group
Great Leaders Mix and Match is a wonderful read. Mixing for the right balance to create new impactful combinations is crucial for modern leaders.
21st century companies need more ideaDJs.
