Fast food slows the brain, new study finds - Telegraph

Fast food slows the brain, new study finds - Telegraph | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
For parents desperate to persuade their children about the ill-effects of takeaway meals it may be seen as a vindication of their warnings: a new study suggests that fast food may slow the brain.
Children who ate the most fast food were found to have poorer scores in tests for maths, science and reading, in research based on more than 8,000 participants.
One theory suggested by researchers is that a lack of iron – which is associated with fast food – leads to a slowing in development of certain processes in the brain. Another theory is that diets high in fat and added sugar have a detrimental impact on learning processes.

How information moves between cultures

How information moves between cultures | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
By analyzing data on multilingual Twitter users and Wikipedia editors and on 30 years’ worth of book translations in 150 countries, researchers at MIT, Harvard University, Northeastern University, and Aix Marseille University have developed network maps that they say represent the strength of the cultural connections between speakers of different languages.
This week, in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, they show that a language’s centrality in their network — as defined by both the number and the strength of its connections — better predicts the global fame of its speakers than either the population or the wealth of the countries in which it is spoken.

Why the sharing economy could be the internet’s most divisive revolution yet

Why the sharing economy could be the internet’s most divisive revolution yet | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
This is the “sharing economy”, hailed by the government for creating “micro-entrepreneurs” and by economists for putting “excess capacity” to use. Traditional businesses and workers – from hotel owners to taxi drivers – have been less welcoming.

The sector is growing fast. Airbnb claims to have more than 1m rooms available, compared with the 13m rooms provided by formal hotel chains (not including bed and breakfast rooms). Uber can claim thousands of drivers – some poached from other lift services, or working for more than one. Not all companies are doing so well: TaskRabbit, which puts you in touch with vetted “taskers” to take whatever chore you want off your hands, has struggled to grow beyond its current 19 cities, which include London.

Educating Minds Online (Chronicle)

Educating Minds Online (Chronicle) | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Online courses—or an online component of a traditional class—offer a way to “give students repeated, challenging practice with the concepts we want them to know and the skills we want them to master,” Miller said. “When I started out as a teacher, we cognitive psychologists already knew that things like frequent quizzing were incredibly beneficial to learning. I was excited to apply these findings, but when I got into a real classroom environment I found that it was overwhelmingly difficult and time consuming to actually do so. In many traditional courses you also can’t do things like offer repeated quiz attempts with different questions, or adapt the quiz to the topics that individual students are having the most trouble with.”

Miller is referring there to the well-established “testing effect,” which describes the learning boost that comes when students are required to make frequent efforts to draw material from their memory and use it in different contexts.

"Thomas Frey is executive director and “senior futurist” at the DaVinci Institute, a 17-year-old think tank where he gathers a group of high-profile intellectuals for deep conversations about tomorrow. And we mean high profile: regular contributors to these “mastermind groups” include nearly every sitting governor of Colorado (the think tank’s home state), CEOs like Yahoo’s Marissa Mayer, the commissioner of the U.S. patent office, university presidents and science fiction authors like David Brin."

Innovation Excellence | How To Innovate Your Business Model In 5 (Not So Easy) Steps | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Isolated innovations are unlikely to make a significant impact on performance unless there is a commensurate change in how the enterprise operates.  A new product, target market or revenue stream may move the needle slightly, but rarely more.  To create meaningful change, we need to transform the business model.  Here’s what you need to know:

La metodología Lean Startup ha sido incorporada en los procesos de innovación de nuevos modelos de negocios.  Ya es parte integral del proceso de implementar una innovación.  La planificación estratégica está siendo desplazada por lo que yo denomino la "preparación estratégica", esto es, tener menos planes pero incrementar exponencialmente la capacidad de aprender y realizar proactivamente cambios a lo largo de toda la organización .

Research: 10 Traits of Innovative Leaders - HBR

Research: 10 Traits of Innovative Leaders - HBR | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Many organizations would like their leaders to create more innovative teams. But how exactly should they do this? If you ask highly innovative leaders what makes them effective you are apt to hear, “Well, I don’t know. I haven’t thought about it.” Or they will make something up that sounds compelling. But the fact of the matter is that people who excel at something aren’t usually very good at pinpointing exactly what accounts for their skill.

So to find out more, we conducted our own study. We began by collaborating with a respected organization in the telecommunications industry whose leaders scored well above average on most managerial competencies. We identified 33 individuals who scored at or above the 99th percentile on innovation, as measured by their peers, subordinates, and bosses in a comprehensive 360-degree feedback survey.  We believed these closest colleagues would have the most accurate view of what made this group of leaders stand out from the pack in this large organization.

Today’s Most Important Strategy: Building a Culture of Agility | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"What company in the world has not been going through sudden shifts from major, disruptive change?


These are all the necessary things to do to react to change, but these actions usually only treat the symptoms of a chronic illness – hardening of corporate arteries – without curing the underlying cause.


Companies may be missing out on the most important strategy of all: Creating a culture of agility. This should be every CEO’s first strategic priority because it is the culture that enables companies to flex nimbly in any direction and execute any strategy."

Study looks at marijuana's impact on brain | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"From animal studies, there's reason to believe it (marijuana use) will affect parts of the brain and also the connections between them, and some of our preliminary studies suggest that is the case," said O'Donnell, a professor in the department of psychological and brain sciences. 

In a previous study, the researchers found that connectivity in the brain was altered in cannabis users in a way that seemed to make the brain less efficient, he said."

Build an Innovation Engine in 90 Days | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"Practically every company innovates. But few do so in an orderly, reliable way. In far too many organizations, the big breakthroughs happen despite the company. Successful innovations typically follow invisible development paths and require acts of individual heroism or a heavy dose of serendipity. Successive efforts to jump-start innovation through, say, hack-a-thons, cash prizes for inventive concepts, and on-again, off-again task forces frequently prove fruitless. Great ideas remain captive in the heads of employees, innovation initiatives take way too long, and the ideas that are developed are not necessarily the best efforts or the best fit with strategic priorities."

Study: Industrial clusters fuel economies

Study: Industrial clusters fuel economies | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Experts have long theorized that having a cluster of firms within a given industry helps a region’s economy grow. Now a study co-authored by an MIT professor shows empirically that clusters of almost all kinds help drive overall economic growth in multiple ways, from job creation and development of intellectual property to the formation of new industries.
The study, based on a unique long-term project collecting data on regional economies, has important implications for policymakers: It suggests that a region can improve its economic performance by improving its existing assets, rather than attempting a transformation by chasing industries situated elsewhere.

The Eight Dimensions of Strategic Thinking

The Eight Dimensions of Strategic Thinking | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
I would like to describe a model for developing an effective strategic planning process. Most organizations do a poor job at planning and even poorer at execution. One of the major reasons that most strategic development plans fail is that most strategy models are one or two dimensional. SWOTs, Boston Consulting Matrix and the famous 7S model are all deficient in that they are not comprehensive and holistic. Most models oversimplify the Zeitgeist that is out there in the social and economic environments impacting organizations. Too many models deal with only a few of the key dimensions that affect organizations.

It’s rare to see the future unfold in front of our eyes this dramatically but here it is: the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab has helped a man who lost both his arms in a “freak electrical accident” connect to dual robotic arms by connecting to and reading from his nervous system.

The Importance of Putting the Human Interaction Back Into HR

The Importance of Putting the Human Interaction Back Into HR | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Instead of empowering new employees from before Day One, some companies de-magnetize their enthusiasm with a first day filled with barely legible photocopied paperwork, horribly dry employee handbooks, and outdated training manuals that haven’t been updated since 1999.

All that anticipation and highly engaged first-day energy is completely wiped out by the onboarding electronic magnetic pulse, and then we’re left for dead in a paperwork wilderness.

As I’ve mentioned many times in the past, I’ve played Human Resources on TV, but I have actually done the blocking and tackling associated with sourcing, screening, hiring and onboarding. I know first-hand, at least in smaller companies, that we’ve been quite guilty of a paper-intensive onboarding experience.
