The Myth of the Bell Curve

The Myth of the Bell Curve | hypersupreme | Scoop.it

There is a long standing belief in business that people performance follows the Bell Curve (also called the Normal Distribution). This belief has been embedded in many business practices: performance appraisals, compensation models, and even how we get graded in school. (Remember "grading by the curve?")

Research shows that this statistical model, while easy to understand, does not accurately reflect the way people perform. As a result, HR departments and business leaders inadvertently create agonizing problems with employee performance and happiness.

Don Cloud's curator insight, February 22, 2014 1:20 PM

A mentor of mine shared with me, "Spend 90% of your time leading 90% of your people", and this article reinforces that very idea.

 

That is, bell curves only apply to static distributions.  So how should we account for the fact that people can grow and change?  How might we compare the leaderhip and organizational culture of very successful organizations against those that are mediocre or failing ... in regards to how they treat their people?

 

What might be the key difference between the two?  Might I suggest that perhaps the vital difference is the perspective and actions of  leaders that prioritize the selection and development/growth of their people, as comprared to managers who pigeonhole their people on a bell curve and consider employees a cost center to be reduced?

Remote Desktop Client with AngularJS and Yeoman

Remote Desktop Client with AngularJS and Yeoman | hypersupreme | Scoop.it

We should have a VNC server on the machine we want to control. This machine provides interface accessible through the RFB protocol. The proxy in the middle has RFB client, which knows how to talk to the RFB server. The proxy also provides HTTP server, which is responsible for serving static files to the client and also allows communication through socket.io. The last component in our diagram is the “AngularJS VNC client”, which consists few HTML and JavaScript files provided to the browser by the proxy. This is what actually the user of our VNC client sees. He or she use the form provided in the “AngularJS VNC client” in order to enter connection details and connect to the machine he or she wants to control
