Team Working: 10 Tips For Effective Real-Time Online Collaboration | Team building | Scoop.it
Digital natives co-author articles, theses, and books online and in real-time. If you're still sending back and forth emails with file attachments to collaborate on a document, you're doing it wrong. Unless you share the same office, online collaborative writing is generally safer, more reliable, and more efficient than emails. On top of that it's…

Team-Building Activities for Work Empathy

Team-Building Activities for Work Empathy | Team building | Scoop.it

A manager plans team-building activities to increase a team's effectiveness. If team members develop better listening skills, such as empathy, they can become more attuned to group needs. They can communicate more often in response to this emotional information. Showing concern for a speaker's needs makes the speaker feel that he is being heard.

 

Play a Listening Game

 

Team-building activities promote good listening. A manager can vary Dr. Carl Rogers' listening game by assigning employees to choose a partner and try this activity. The first partner speaks honestly for 30 seconds while the other partner listens. The second partner must restate what his partner said. This process continues until the second partner can restate the first speaker's main point and the first speaker is satisfied. Then the partners switch roles and play the game again.

The Four Traps of Predictive Analytics | MIT Sloan Management Review

The Four Traps of Predictive Analytics | MIT Sloan Management Review | Team building | Scoop.it

Digest...

 

The First Trap: Magical Thinking

The truth is, companies must understand what they want before they go analyzing things helter skelter, especially when it comes to making predictions. He points out that there are really only four things businesses can use analytics to predict: risk, opportunity, fraud and demand.

 

The Second Trap: Starting at the Top

Operational decisions, such as those in which companies choose a supplier or determine whether to extend credit, lend themselves well to predictive analytics. So companies need to recognize that predictive analytics works best for prompting decisions about operations, rather than initiating their use

 

The Third Trap: Building Cottages, Not Factories

Focusing on decisions can help companies avoid another path to failure: creating analytic models that don’t scale. Analytics specialists are no more connected to the business than technology specialists, Taylor said; focusing on decisions can help bridge that gap. Otherwise, analytics specialists are prone to create the equivalent of a cottage industry, where the models built apply to only one thing, or are too complex and expensive to be reused easily.

 

The Fourth Trap: Seeking Purified Data

Taylor says good data is useful, of course, but companies should start with the business decision they want to make, and then look for data that might help them predict outcomes. Remember that the needed data may come from outside corporate walls. For many either/or business cases, the data you need might not have to be pristine.

My take: start with low hanging fruit, located in the tactical realm. Gain successes in small chunks, learn, and delve deeper over time.

Jean-Michel Franco's curator insight, August 26, 2014 5:25 AM

Must read  article from the excellent James Taylor. Key simple takeaway: "there are really only four things businesses can use analytics to predict: risk, opportunity, fraud and demand". (may be a few to add, however, for example linked to predictive maintenance in discrete manufacturing)
