    How many decisions do you make in the course of the day?  Five, ten, hundreds? Some are as trivial as Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks? Others are more operational, such as signing a training request form or agreeing to new terms with a vendor.  Still some of your decisions will be strategic and require a bit more thought.  In these instances, are you able to be unbiased in your decision-making?

    It is getting increasingly difficult to keep up with technology. Programming languages, technology stacks, architecture patterns, devices – all of these are changing at an exponential pace. Skills gained by meticulous practice become more or less useless over time. It is a puzzle, but it is not a tough one to crack – you just need to change with the times. It is as simple as that. It is also getting increasingly difficult to keep up with changes in any given domain. For examples, look at the impact of Bitcoin on the world of finance, or the impact of technology in healthcare…

    I recently gave a keynote address to a mid market construction company and to wrap up the speech, we conducted a stakeholder leadership exercise.  While I was wandering around the audience during the exercise,  I came across a project manager who was struggling with the concept of prioritizing his stakeholders and what was even more challenging, he was struggling with the idea that he could not have ten #1 priorities!  He had four customers listed, his division VP, the CEO of the company, two estimators and two supervisors.  They were all #1 priorities! Right?  Wrong!

    In the industrial age, businesses grew large because services that were centralized were better.  Railroads and electric power companies are two examples of industries where companies expanded to improve the services they delivered.  The bigger they became the better they could service their markets. In the paradigm shift that’s emerging in 2015-2020, technology is enabling de-centralization.  Think how Tesla’s creation of a standalone battery to power a home or office, eliminates the need for an electric utility company.  3D printing, Internet of Things, smart watches and mobile…

  • Morality, Fast and Slow

    Stephen Few
    28 Jul 2015 | 3:06 pm
    Morality is a function of the brain. When we make a distinction between matters of the heart and head, we are in fact distinguishing two modes of thinking that take place in our brains: System 1 thinking, which is fast, emotional, and intuitive (heart), and System 2 thinking, which is slow, rational, and deliberative. Daniel Kahneman beautifully describes these two modes of thinking in his book Thinking, Fast and Slow. Both modes are useful, but they are best suited for different tasks. In some situations we should go with our hearts (or guts, as in “gut feelings”), and some…
  • Abela’s Folly – A Thought Confuser

    Stephen Few
    21 Jul 2015 | 2:56 pm
    On the home page of my website, I quote the mathematician and philosopher Alfred North Whitehead who said, “Seek simplicity and distrust it.” This is wise advice. We want to keep things as simple as possible, but we should never oversimplify to the point of losing essential complexity. As data visualization has become increasingly popular during the last decade, efforts to explain it have often become simplistic (i.e., oversimplified) to a harmful degree. We humans long for simple answers. The world, however, is in many ways complex. Data sensemaking and presentation skills are easy to…
  • Statistical Failures in Scientific Research

    Stephen Few
    16 Jul 2015 | 4:21 pm
    In recent years we’ve become increasingly aware of abundant errors in scientific research, many of which stem from bad statistics. Many of the ways in which these studies fail statistically are encouraged by academic journals. The way in which p-values are relied on excessively but almost routinely misused is a common example. Even though researchers must understand a particular subset of statistical concepts and techniques to do their work, relatively few possess this understanding. In some fields of scientific study you can even earn a doctorate without taking a single course in…
  • The Incentives Are All Wrong

    Stephen Few
    7 Jul 2015 | 2:13 pm
    Perhaps you’ve heard that a large proportion of published scientific research findings are false. If anyone qualified took the time to validate them, up to half or more could be exposed as erroneous at the time of publication. Most of the errors are due to bad research methodology. Most of the bad research methodology is either due to insufficient training, incentives that are in conflict with good science, or both. The primary area of training that’s lacking is in statistics. Researchers are incentivized to be productive and innovative above all else. It’s all about getting published…

    When you dedicate your life to the creation of useful knowledge and tools, as Ben Shneiderman has, it is painful to see your lessons or inventions perverted in some way. It happens, however, no matter how hard you work to keep your creations on a path of proper use. Besides the original design of hyperlinks, the treemap is Ben’s best-known invention. Once you put an invention out there in the world, you lose control of it and sometimes cringe at the ways it is misused or defaced. I’ve seen many poor implementations of treemaps over the years, but this one takes the prize: (Click to…

    Given that multiple research studies show only a small fraction of employees are engaged at work, I’ve spent a disproportionate amount of time talking to people about how  leaders can empower employees and unlock their potential. For those that are interested, Gary Hamel, co-founder of the Management Innovation eXchange (MIX), and I discussed these issues during a Maverick Hangout last year.

  • Is The Glass Half Empty or Half Full?

    Jonathan Becher
    26 Jul 2015 | 4:03 pm
    The pessimist believes the glass is half empty and the optimist sees it as half full but the insomniac stays up all night trying to decide the answer. This is an amusing twist on the classic expression normally used to show that any given situation can be looked at optimistically (half full) or pessimistically (half empty). The expression is so well-known that personality types are sometimes referred to as ‘glass half-full’ or ‘glass half-empty’. In other words, different people can perceive the same situation in different ways. Before a colleague told me the insomniac…

    On July 4 1776, the Continental Congress approved the Declaration of Independence. The declaration announced that the thirteen American colonies no longer considered themselves as part of the British Empire but rather a new nation of independent sovereign states — the United States of America. This in itself is well-known: however, here are some factoids about the event that are less well-known: The term “Declaration of Independence” is not used anywhere in the document. It’s unclear when or how the document started to be referred to that way. Congress had already voted on…

    More than six years ago, I created a wordle of my 10 most popular blog posts. Back then, word clouds were relatively new and I thought it was an interesting way to explore what I had been writing about. Some words were expected – performance, scorecard, objectives, strategy, metrics. Others were a bit more surprising – often, time, usually, group. Since these days I write less about performance management and more about leadership and behavior, I decided to revisit the idea and generated the above word cloud on my last 20 blog posts using Tagxedo. Comparing the 2009 word cloud with…

    Whenever I ask a technical or engineering group, or in fact, almost any group of workers that are not sales professionals the question - "Are you more comfortable selling or serving?", the answer always leans to "serving". Many of us feel that "selling" is actually a four-letter word!  I do my job, I do it well, I give everything I have to the customer - and then some.  Don't ask me to 'sell' anything!

    Bologna 2015: A Collaborative Commons Experiment Do you want to improve your town? You are not the first one. And it is easier and easier now with the help of the new technologies and a growing interest in collaboration, civic action, the sharing economy and the collaborative commons. According to Neal Gorenflo of Medium in Bologna back in 2011, a group of ladies wished to donate benches to their local park so there was somewhere to sit. Having phoned around many departments of city government they found they kept being referred, and that nobody was able to help. What they discovered was…

    Financial Innovations That Might Make You Never Need to Use a Bank Again   Finance has been changing very rapidly over the past few years. It can definitely be seen that the financial industry has been transforming, with the emergence of innovations like peer to peer lending, new currencies and fintech. This means that in some cases people may not have to use a bank going forward. At least, writing for The Guardian in 2015, this is the view of Leander Bindewald, a senior researcher at the New Economics Foundation.

    9 Tips to Make a Compelling Call to Action In Digital Marketing As every good marketer knows a call to action is an essential component to get a customer to take the next step towards engaging with their business. Calls to action can be presented in many different ways but all of them are designed to get the customer to make moves towards a purchase. This might include “click here” or “call now” or “request your free trial” among others. In fact if marketing materials do not contain a call to action of some sort then arguably they are missing the point. Basically a call to action…

    Illustration by Tim Bradford Alternative financing is shaking up the entire financial sector. Gone are the days when individuals and businesses had no choice but to work with banks to get the financial services that they need. Now there are all kinds of different options such as peer to peer lending and crowdfunding too.

    Do you want a summer where you don’t have to queue for attractions? Simulation can help make that happen! Ski resorts are not just for winter anymore!

    Boarding a plane can be stressful – everyone wants to get on as quickly as possible with minimum disruption, but sometimes confusion occurs and people end up sitting in the wrong seat or taking a long time to put their bags in the overheard storage. This causes everyone to take longer to find their seats, and delaying the plane from being ready for departure. Airlines try different methods of boarding including: Back-To-Front, Random boarding, WILMA (Window, Middle, Aisle) and many others to try and ensure quick boarding and customer satisfaction, but how can you quickly prove which…

    Dharmendra Modha, IBM Fellow and Chief Scientist, Brain-Inspired Computing By Dharmendra S.

Both goals are now within reach. And, today, as we launch our ecosystem for brain-inspired computing with a TrueNorth Boot Camp for academic and government researchers, I expect that the two quests will begin to converge.

    Horace Dediu

    Will there come a time when Samsung will earn more profits from the iPhone franchise than from its own Galaxy product line? The problem for Samsung is that although it still sells the most phones[1], and the most smartphones, the price and margins for these products are collapsing. The pattern is shown in the graphs below: Phone operating margins peaked in Q1 2014 at 20% but are half that level today. These margins have dropped to levels Samsung had in 2009, before the Galaxy launched and before they had any substantial revenues from smartphones. In contrast, the semiconductor group is…
