How to make big data beautiful -- and useful

How to make big data beautiful -- and useful | Naela | Scoop.it
For big data to be more than a buzzword, companies need to focus on design
Naela Bloshe's insight:

One of the best features of the big data revolution is that it’s powered by zero-cost open source software. Whereas business intelligence has been plagued by complex, high-priced software, today’s most innovative big data technology is a download away.

At least, that’s the theory.

Why Strategy Execution Unravels—and What to Do About It

Why Strategy Execution Unravels—and What to Do About It | Naela | Scoop.it

Nine years ago one of us (Don) began a large-scale project to understand how complex organizations can execute their strategies more effectively. The research includes more than 40 experiments in which we made changes in companies and measured the impact on execution, along with a survey administered to nearly 8,000 managers in more than 250 companies. The study is ongoing but has already produced valuable insights. The most important one is this: Several widely held beliefs about how to implement strategy are just plain wrong. In this article we debunk five of the most pernicious myths and replace them with a more accurate perspective that will help managers effectively execute strategy. Focus on coordinating across silos and adapting to change on the front lines.

The most difficcult task is to translate strategy intto results.

Executional excellence is becoming aa key factor in today's globalized business world.

Strategy execution means seizing opportunities that support the strategy and requires flexibility, agility and a good performance culture.

Frontiers | Where is the “g” in creativity? A specialization–differentiation hypothesis | Frontiers in Human Neuroscience

Sharrock's curator insight, February 25, 2015 5:00 AM
excerpt: " "although some domain-general resources underlie creativity (Baer and Kaufman, 2005), they are less crucial than the interaction between person-level resources and the demands of the particular domain, task, time, and place. This lies in stark contrast to the view of creativity as a generalized trait or ability (Barbot et al., 2013b). Therefore, the quest for a g-factor of creativity might be unproductive." http://journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fnhum.2014.01041/full

Naela Bloshe's insight:

But it's a pretty fascinating idea. More research and improving techniques may bring the cost closer to Earth. And of course, in practice, we would be far more judicious about what information we encode—using the technique as a time capsule or the ultimate backup for the modern world's most critical information.

Carl Jung: “All the contents of our unconscious are constantly being projected into our surroundings….”

Carl Jung: “All the contents of our unconscious are constantly being projected into our surroundings….” | Naela | Scoop.it
Just as we tend to assume that the world is as we see it, we naïvely suppose that people are as we imagine them to be. . . .
All the contents of our unconscious are constantly being projected into our surroundings, and it is only by recognizing certain properties of the objects as projections or imagos that we are able to distinguish them from the real properties of the objects. . .
Cum grano salis, we always see our own unavowed mistakes in our opponent.
Excellent examples of this are to be found in all personal quarrels.
Unless we are possessed of an unusual degree of self-awareness we shall never see through our projections but must always succumb to them, because the mind in its natural state presupposes the existence of such projections.
It is the natural and given thing for unconscious contents to be projected.

Machine learning -- getting a system to teach itself from lots of data rather than simply following preset rules -- actually powers the Microsoft software you use everyday. Machine learning has infiltrated Microsoft products from Bing to Office to Windows 8 to Xbox games. Its flashiest vehicle may be the futuristic Skype Translator, which handles two-way voice conversations in different languages.

Curiosity helps learning and memory

Curiosity helps learning and memory | Naela | Scoop.it
Curiosity helps us learn about a topic, and being in a curious state also helps the brain memorize unrelated information, according to researchers at the UC Davis Center for Neuroscience. Work published Oct. 2 in the journal Neuron shows how piquing our curiosity changes our brains, and could help scientists find ways to enhance overall learning and memory in both healthy individuals and those with neurological conditions.

Transient Strategy: A Different Way of Thinking | Naela | Scoop.it

There is a rising school of thought, driven by the speed of our communications, and the fickle likes and dislikes of the business and consumer community that the formulation of strategy for a business can no longer be an exercise in naval gazing, postulating on ideas or a lengthy exercise that takes an equally if not longer time to implement. Speed is essential..
