Different Minds Think Greatly

first_imgMy co-workers recently forwarded me an interesting article about cognitive diversity.The Techonomy article, written by John Hagel and John Seely Brown, asserts that “like-mindedness” can hurt corporations.In other words, we should re-think the phrase “Great Minds Think Alike” and perhaps turn to something along the lines of “Different Minds Think Greatly.”The title of the article, in part, states that “Too Much Like-Mindedness Hurts Companies.” They conclude:“Organizations that host a diverse and broad range of members have a resilience that results from cross pollination.”I agree with the authors, and I have relevant data to back them up. Over the past two years I’ve been developing a global innovation analytics platform as a way of measuring and accelerating global innovation. I’ve guided myself through this “Big Data” project using the six-step Data Analytics Life Cycle.We’ve aggregated thousands of employee ideas submitted into our Innovation Roadmap framework and run Social Network Analysis (SNA) algorithms against the data. We’re specifically looking for “clusters” of inventors that tend to have really great ideas. A “great” idea is an idea that is chosen as a “finalist” that is worthy of funding. The chart below highlights five such clusters, with the color “red” symbolizing a finalist.My attention was drawn to the larger cluster in the lower center of the graph. I asked our data scientists (led by Distinguished Engineer John Cardente) to drill down into this huge cluster, which contains a surprisingly large number of successful inventors. I asked them to color code each inventor using a different color shade representing what country they were from. The graphic below shows an inventor cluster representing five different countries: China, Israel, France, Australia, and the United States.In addition, certain individuals had extremely high “betweenness counts,” which indicates that they may be boundary spanners.These results certainly indicate that passionate inventors that seek to partner with diverse partners achieve a high level of success.The final piece of data that really backs up the article is the makeup of the winning team in 2012. Out of 2,200 employee ideas submitted in 2012, EMC selected the “Best-In-Show” idea from a team spanning Beijing, Shanghai, Egypt, and the United States.The Techonomy article infers that global multi-nationals actually have competitive advantage over smaller companies. Perhaps the best way to close my own blog post is to let the authors close it for me:“Organizations that host a diverse and broad range of members have a resilience that results from cross pollination. They have the ability to sense trends and react quickly and creatively to problems as they arise. As the lines between industries increasingly blur, this capability becomes more important, and is one of the advantages that large companies can have over small ones. In a world where we respond to increasing uncertainty by seeking out others like us, companies can play a significant role in building diversity and creating the mechanisms to enhance the potential for serendipity. Those who figure this out are likely to build a significant competitive advantage in resilience and creative thinking over firms that let us stay in our comfort zone.”last_img read more

How Jose Mourinho could make Arsenal a force again, according to Danny Mills

first_imgAdvertisement Advertisement Jose Mourinho has been touted as a possible Arsenal boss (Picture: Getty Images)Jose Mourinho’s adaptability as a manger would improve Arsenal, but he would need to spend a lot of money to spend on the squad, according to England international Danny Mills.Pressure is beginning to mount on Gunners boss Unai Emery after a shaky start to the season and a calamitous 2-2 draw with Watford last weekend.Emery’s side were two goals ahead at half time at Vicarage Road but produced a woeful display after the break and allowed the Hornets to get back into the game and take a point.Mills does not believe Emery has made much of an impact since taking over at the Emirates in 2018 and believes Mourinho is a better option in the dugout, although the Portuguese would take some persuading to accept the job.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENT‘Is there much improvement since Arsene Wenger?’ Mills asked on talkSPORT. ‘Under Arsene Wenger it was always “they just keep doing the same thing, they keep playing the same way, they don’t sort out the defensive midfield, they don’t sort out the defence and it doesn’t get any better”.‘One thing you have to say about Mourinho [is] he always found different ways to win and he would adapt to the opposition. Mourinho I still think is one of the best. I’m not so sure that he would [take the Arsenal job].‘He’d need plenty of money, he’d need plenty of money to sort that defence out, that would be the biggest problem.More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man City‘But he was adaptable, Sir Alex Ferguson was always adaptable, would change formation in European games. To compete at the very, very top, you have to do that.‘Unless you are so ahead of everybody else, so much better, you have to adapt to the opposition.‘Even Manchester City did that, that first season where Pep [Guardiola] realised “oh, that didn’t quite work”. You’ve got to find a balance.’Emery is not expected to be sacked any time soon, with bookmakers offering odds of 25/1 on him being the next Premier League manager to leave their post.The Spaniard will also be buoyed by the return from injury of defenders Rob Holding, Hector Bellerin and Kieran Tierney, all of whom should be available for Premier League action in the coming days.MORE: Mesut Ozil not included in Arsenal Europa League squad for Eintracht Frankfurt clashMORE: Unai Emery set to name strong Arsenal XI against Frankfurt with Bukayo Saka involved in training again Metro Sport ReporterWednesday 18 Sep 2019 6:23 pmShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link4.2kSharescenter_img Comment How Jose Mourinho could make Arsenal a force again, according to Danny Millslast_img read more

​Irish association questions new trustee qualification thresholds

first_imgThe Irish Association of Pension Funds (IAPF) has raised concerns about the impact of stricter trustee-qualification thresholds proposed by its regulator, after a consultation suggested trustees have at least two years of experience.The consultation, released by the Pensions Authority on 18 July ahead of detailed reform proposals to the government by the end of the year, seeks to bring Ireland’s oversight of trustee boards into line with the revised IORP Directive.It recommends that trustee boards possess a certain level of collective knowledge – including the potential for an entry threshold of two years’ experience for trustees lacking formal qualifications.Jerry Moriarty, chief executive of the IAPF, questioned how trustees would be able to gain the minimum two years of experience without completing formal qualifications, and noted that the cost and time commitment involved in completing the Irish Institute of Pension Managers’ courses could deter lay trustees. “Unless you do [the qualifications], or have two years’ experience, I don’t see how you can become a trustee,” Moriarty said. “And I don’t see how you can get two years’ experience without being a trustee with no experience at some stage.”However, Moriarty did welcome the Authority’s pledge it was not seeking to professionalise trusteeship, with the consultation saying lay trustees could bring “a significant amount to their role as a trustee”.Brendan Kennedy, who heads the Authority, told IPE the body had attempted to “strike a balance” when drafting its proposals.“We are aware of the fact lay trustees are a very important part of the system, and there would be a great deal of opposition to removing a place for lay trustees from our system,” he said. The IAPF has been among those resisting rigid requirements for trustees, warning a professionalisation of the field risked imposing “group think”. However, the proposals, as drafted, would not completely exclude lay trustees, as the new requirements would only apply to the trustee board as a collective.The Authority set out that a trustee board should consist of at least two members – one with at least two years’ experience, and a second member who had revised and “enhanced” qualifications.However, the emphasis on the requirements applying to a trustee board “on a collective basis” would likely allow for inexperienced lay trustees to join boards with two or more qualified trustees.Scheme ‘rationalisation’Kennedy admitted the new trustee-qualification requirements were, in part, to bring about “rationalisation” within the sector, which would not be required if a larger pool of trustees were available.“The trustee pool is finite, which may encourage consolidation – one of the reasons we want to see consolidation is because the trustee pool is finite,” he said, likening it to a “chicken and egg” situation.The Authority was also considering other measures to bring about scheme mergers in the defined contribution (DC) space, including how the industry reimburses the regulator’s running costs.Kennedy said it was always possible to see a shift to a fund-based fee, which would remove any disincentive to create large-scale DC master trusts.The Authority has said any such multi-employer trustees should expect to be subject to stricter requirements than individual company-sponsored funds, including minimum capital requirements, which would cover any costs associated with a scheme’s wind-up.last_img read more

Will target England’s ‘fragile’ top-order in Tests: Babar Azam

first_imgWORCESTERSHIRE: Talented batsman Babar Azam has insisted he doesn’t want to be compared with Indian skipper Virat Kohli but instead with legendary Pakistan batsmen like Javed Miandad and Inzamam-ul-Haq.”I don’t want to be compared with Virat Kohli. It would be better if people compare me with one of the Pakistani legends like Javed Miandad, Mohammad Yousaf or Younis Khan,” cricket.pakistan.com.pk quoted Babar as saying in a teleconference on Thursday. Babar averages over 50 in ODI and T20Is and a little over 45 in Tests while Kohli averages over 50 in all the three formats and is counted among the modern-day greats. The Lahore-born batsman further said that he is eyeing to score a triple hundred in the upcoming three-c against England. Pakistan will take on England in a series involving three Tests and as many T20Is in August and September, after the completion of West Indies’ three-Test series against the ‘The Three Lions’ starting July 8. “When you score a century, you naturally want to go on and convert that into a double or a triple century. This is something I would like to do during the Test series,” said Pakistan’s limited-overs skipper. “I like to play my natural game but my selection of shots depends on the conditions and bowlers.” He also exuded confidence of his side winning the Test series against England in their own den. “We performed well on our previous tour of England which is why players are eagerly looking forward to the series,” Babar said. “We are currently focused on winning the Test series as that is our first goal on the tour.” “England have the home advantage but our bowlers will give tough time to their batsmen. We will target their fragile Test top-order. Mohammad Abbas is experienced while Naseem Shah and Shaheen Afridi have a lot of potential. We have high expectations from our bowlers,” he added. Former speedster Shoaib Akhtar has also urged Pakistan to not settle for a draw but go for victory in their upcoming Test series against England. Akhtar has advised the Pakistan team to go into the series with a positive frame of mind and belief that they can beat the mighty England team in their own backyard.
