The Myth of Multitasking: Why Fewer Priorities Leads to Better Work

The Myth of Multitasking: Why Fewer Priorities Leads to Better Work | Cambridge Marketing Review | Scoop.it

"Yes, we are capable of doing two things at the same time. It is possible, for example, to watch TV while cooking dinner or to answer an email while talking on the phone", writes James Clear

 

"What is impossible, however, is concentrating on two tasks at once. Multitasking forces your brain to switch back and forth very quickly from one task to another.

 

This wouldn't be a big deal if the human brain could transition seamlessly from one job to the next, but it can't. Multitasking forces you to pay a mental price each time you interrupt one task and jump to another. In psychology terms, this mental price is called the switching cost."

Matthew Farmer's curator insight, January 9, 2:30 AM

With so much information all around us, the temptation to try to multi-task is very high but as this article and many others tell us is that we can't really multi-task. We can process things in serial or switch attention between two things happening at once but if the the cognitive attention required for either task is significant for either task we cannot effectively do them at the same time.

 

 

The pressure to try to multitask is high given the information overload but the reality is that we need to ensure that we don't experience a 'filter failure' and are able to prioritise and focus.

GDPR is not Y2K

GDPR is not Y2K | Cambridge Marketing Review | Scoop.it
By Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham I’ve been pleased to hear from many of you that the eight GDPR myth busting blogs we’ve run this year have been helpful in your preparations for the new legislation. There are still some myths out there though and, as we approach Christmas and New Year, there’s one in particular…
Steve Bax's insight:
A very good pre Christmas blog by Elizabeth Denham. Her key message for organisations is:

 "By now you should be putting key building blocks in place to ensure your organisation implements responsible data practices:  
1. Organisational commitment – Preparation and compliance must be cross-organisational, starting with a commitment at board level. There needs to be a culture of transparency and accountability as to how you use personal data – recognising that the public has a right to know what’s happening with their information. 

2. Understand the information you have – document what personal data you hold, where it came from and who you share it with. This will involve reviewing your contracts with third party processors to ensure they’re fit for GDPR. 

3. Implement accountability measures – including appointing a data protection officer if necessary, considering lawful bases, reviewing privacy notices, designing and testing a data breach incident procedure that works for you and thinking about what new projects in the coming year could need a Data Protection Impact Assessment. 

4. Ensure appropriate security – you’ll need continual rigour in identifying and taking appropriate steps to address security vulnerabilities and cyber risks 

5. Train Staff – Staff are your best defence and greatest potential weakness – regular and refresher training is a must"

Data leak – employer held vicariously liable for employee’s actions – lessons for recruitment and staffing companies as GDPR looms

Data leak – employer held vicariously liable for employee’s actions – lessons for recruitment and staffing companies as GDPR looms | Cambridge Marketing Review | Scoop.it
The High Court has held that a large retailer is liable for a data leak by a disgruntled employee. Over 5,000 current and ex-employees ha
Steve Bax's insight:
Osborne Clarke comments "With data security incidents continuing to grow in frequency and seriousness, this case illustrates a growing trend of group claims by data subjects affected. This trend is only set to increase further once the GDPR, which expressly allows class actions, comes into effect in May 2018. 

 Linked to all this here are some questions we are being asked a lot in connection with the GDPR compliance exercises we are currently helping recruitment and staffing companies with:

 “Are we responsible for what offshore centres in India etc do when they process data you that we send them?” …to which the answer is: “Yes – very much so – you will need to take advice on steps you need to take.”

 “Am I responsible for what my recruitment consultants do on their personal devices etc. in relation to their work for us?” …to which the answer is “Yes – you will need to take steps to control this risk, and agree a new way of working with those recruitment consultants.” " 

 A key change with the GDPR will be the liability on both processors and controllers for non-compliance.

Steve Bax's insight:

The UK’s top brands lag their global counterparts on five measures of long-term financial growth, according to the report. The top 10 have grown by 66% in a decade, compared with the global top 10’s growth of 249%. The report also found that they are seen as less innovative. While the top brands are household names, consumers do not perceive them as innovative.

Facebook abusing its power with 'limitless' collection of people's data, Germany says

Facebook abusing its power with 'limitless' collection of people's data, Germany says | Cambridge Marketing Review | Scoop.it
Facebook has been accused of “limitless” collection of its users’ data by Germany’s competition watchdog, in the first major assessment of the social network’s market dominance.
Steve Bax's insight:
The Federal Cartel Office (FCO)... said that users are effectively unable to switch to another service, and that as a result, do not “effectively consent” to having their data collected on other services. In addition to the profile information that users willingly hand over to Facebook, the social network collects information such as browsing histories from third-party websites and other services it owns, including Instagram and WhatsApp. The regulator said this was in breach of data protection rules. “The authority holds the view that Facebook is abusing this dominant position by making the use of its social network conditional on its being allowed to limitlessly amass every kind of data generated by using third-party websites and merge it with the user's Facebook account,” it said. “Facebook's users are oblivious as to which data from which sources are being merged to develop a detailed profile of them and their online activities.” How will this develop as the GDPR implementation date nears?

GDPR – setting the record straight on data breach reporting
Steve Bax's insight:
This is the fourth blog in the series from the ico. This time about some of the myths around data breach reporting. Elizabeth Denman says "Data breach reporting makes sense under the new legislation which is focused on giving consumers more control over their data and increasing the accountability of organisations. It’s also not unusual – almost all States in the US, some Canadian jurisdictions, and Australia have successfully tightened breach reporting as part of their legal framework... You should be preparing now by ensuring you have the roles, responsibilities and processes in place for reporting; this is particularly important for medium to large organisations that have multiple sites or business lines."

Steve Bax's insight:
This is the second blog by Elizabeth Denham of the ico. This raises the key question of consent. One of main points she makes is the importance of recognising the different lawful basis for processing personal information under the GDPR. This is fundamental to understanding the extent of the impact of changes to requirements on consent.
