rigorously discussing hows and whats,
tenaciously following through, and ensuring
accountability. Larry Bossidy Ram Charan/

12
I saw that leaders placed too much emphasis on
what some call high-level strategy, on
intellectualizing and philosophizing, and not
enough on implementation. People would agree on a
project or initiative, and then nothing would
come of it. Larry Bossidy Ram
Charan/Execution The Discipline of Getting
Things Done
13
COSTCO FIGURED OUT THE BIG, SIMPLE THINGS AND
EXECUTED WITH TOTAL FANATICISM. Charles
Munger, Berkshire Hathaway
14
In real life, strategy is actually very
straightforward. Pick a general direction and
implement like hell. Jack Welch
15
The art of war does not require complicated
maneuvers the simplest are the best and common
sense is fundamental. From which one might wonder
how it is generals make blunders it is because
they try to be clever. Napoleon

Execution!

The score takes care of itself. Bill Walsh
19
I dont think I was a fine game coach. I think I
was a good practice coach. John Wooden
20
When assessing candidates, the first thing I
looked for was energy and enthusiasm for
execution. Does she talk about the thrill of
getting things done, the obstacles overcome, the
role her people played or does she keep
wandering back to strategy or philosophy?
Larry Bossidy, Execution

I cant tell you how many times we passed up
hotshots for guys we thought were better people
and watched our guys do a lot better than the big
names, not just in the classroom, but on the
fieldand, naturally, after they graduated, too.
Again and again, the blue chips faded out, and
our little up-and-comers clawed their way to
all-conference and All-America teams. Bo

The head of one of the large management
consulting firms asks members of a client
organization, And what do you do that justifies
your being on the payroll? The great majority
answer, I run the accounting department, or I
am in charge of the sales force Only a few
say, Its my job to give our managers the
information they need to make the right
decisions, or I am responsible for finding out
what products the customer will want tomorrow.
The man who focuses on efforts and stresses his
downward authority is a subordinate no matter how
exalted his rank or title. But the man who
focuses on contributions and who takes
responsibility for results, no matter how junior,
is in the most literal sense of the phrase, top
management. He holds himself responsible for the
performance of the whole. Peter Drucker
24
A man approached JP Morgan, held up an envelope,
and said, Sir, in my hand I hold a guaranteed
formula for success, which I will gladly sell you
for 25,000.Sir, JP Morgan replied, I do
not know what is in the envelope, however if you
show me, and I like it, I give you my word as a
gentleman that I will pay you what you ask.The
man agreed to the terms, and handed over the
envelope. JP Morgan opened it, and extracted a
single sheet of paper. He gave it one look, a
mere glance, then handed the piece of paper back
to the gent.And paid him the agreed upon
25,000.The paper

AUTOMATE THIS HOW ALGORITHMS CAME TO RULE THE
WORLD
46
Algorithms have already written symphonies as
moving as those composed by Beethoven, picked
through legalese with the deftness of a senior
law partner, diagnosed patients with more
accuracy than a doctor, written news articles
with the smooth hand of a seasoned reporter, and
driven vehicles on urban highways with far better
control than a human driver. Christopher
Steiner, Automate This How Algorithms Came to

Shades of Ned Ludd When Emmy algorithm
produced orchestral pieces so impressive that
some music scholars failed to identify them as
the work of a machine, Prof. David Cope
instantly created legions of enemies. At an
academic conference in Germany, one of his peers
walked up to him and whacked him on the nose.

doctors to be experts, and weve crowded them

their job is to see one patient every 8 to 11

  • Social Survival Manifesto
  • Hiding is not an option.
  • Face it, you are outnumbered. (level playing
    field, arrogance denied)
  • You no longer control the message.
  • Try acting like a human being.
  • Learn to listen, or else. (REALLY listening to
    others a must)
  • Admit that you dont have all the answers.
  • Speak plainly and seek to inform.
  • Quit being a monolith. (Your employees, speaking
    online as individuals, are a crucial resource
    can be managed through frameworks that ENCOURAGE
    participation)
  • Try being less evil.
  • Pay it forward, now. (Internet culture largely
    built on the principal of the Gift Economy give
    value away to your online communities)

Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change

63
Why exactly are we competing with each other to
do the dirty work? Were playing a free online
game called Chore Wars and it just so happens
that ridding our real-world kingdom of toilet
stains is worth more experience points, or XP,
than any other chore in our apartment. A mom in
Texas describes a typical Chore Wars experience
We have three kids, ages 9, 8, and 7. I sat down
with the kids, showed them their characters and
the adventures, and they literally jumped up and
ran off to complete their chosen task. Ive never
seen my 8-year-old son make his bed. I nearly
fainted when my husband cleaned out the toaster
oven. Jane McGonigal, Reality Is

You get a sense of the scale and intricacy of
the task by considering the sound effects alone
The game contains 54,000 pieces of audio and
40,000 lines of dialogue. There are 2,700
different noises for footsteps alone depending on
whose foot is stepping on what. Sam Leith on

65
The popularity of an unwinnable game like Tetris
completely upends the stereotype that gamers are
highly competitive people who care more about
winning than anything else. Competition and
winning are not defining traits of gamesnor are
they defining interests of the people who love to
play them. Many gamers would rather keep playing
than win. In high-feedback games, the state of
being intensely engaged may ultimately be more
pleasurable than the satisfaction of winning.

Flash When I work with experimental digital
gadgets, I am always reminded of how small
changes in the details of a digital design can
have profound unforeseen effects on the
experiences of the people who are playing with
it. The slightest change in something as
seemingly trivial as the ease of use of a button
can sometimes alter behavior patterns. For
instance, Stanford University researcher Jeremy
Bailinson has demonstrated that changing the
height of ones avatars in immersive virtual
reality transforms self-esteem and social
self-perception. Technologies are extensions of
ourselves, and, like the avatars in Jeremys lab,
our identities can be shifted by the quirks of
gadgets. It is impossible to work with
information technology without also engaging in
social engineering. Jaron Lanier, You Are Not

These HP pioneers may not realize just how big
a shift this practice is from a cultural
standpoint. The computer is doing more than
obeying the usual mechanical orders to retain
facts and figures. Its producing new information
thats so powerful, it must be handled with a new
kind of care. Were in a new world in which
systems not only divine new, important
information, but must carefully manage it as
well. Eric Siegel, Predictive Analytics The

Analytics can yield literally hundreds of
millions of data pointsfar too many for human
intuition to make any sense of the data. So in
conjunction with the ability to store very big
data about online behavior, researchers have
developed strong tools for data mining,
statistically evaluating correlations between
many types and sources of data to expose hidden
patterns and connections. The patterns predict
human behaviorand even hidden human
motivations. Illah Reza Nourbakhsh, Professor
of Robotics, Carnegie Mellon, Robot Futures

THE SHAREHOLDER VALUE MYTH
123
The notion that corporate law requires
directors, executives, and employees to maximize
shareholder wealth simply isnt true. There is no
solid legal support for the claim that directors
and executives in U.S. public corporations have
an enforceable legal duty to maximize shareholder
wealth. The idea is fable. Lynn Stout,
professor of corporate and business law, Cornell
Law school, in The Shareholder Value Myth How
Putting Shareholders First Harms Investors,
Corporations, and the Public
124
a corporation can be formed to conduct or
promote any lawful business or purpose from
Delaware corporate code (no mandate for
shareholder primacy), per Lynn Stout, professor
of corporate and business law, Cornell Law
school, in The Shareholder Value Myth How
Putting Shareholders First Harms Investors,
Corporations, and the Public
125
On the face of it, shareholder value is the
dumbest idea in the world. Shareholder value is a
result, not a strategy. Your main
constituencies are your employees, your
customers and your products. Jack Welch, FT,

MIA Origins of Our Financial Chaos The CEO of
a very successful mid-sized bank, in the Midwest,
attended a seminar of mine in northern California
in the mid-80sbut I remember the following,
pretty much word for word, as if it were
yesterday
136
MIA Origins of Our Financial Chaos Tom, let
me tell you the definition of a good lending
officer. After church on Sunday, on the way home
with his family, he takes a little detour to
drive by the factory he just lent money to.
Doesnt go in or any such thing, just drives by
and takes a look.

Most managers spend a great deal of time
thinking about what they plan to do, but
relatively little time thinking about what they
plan not to do. As a result, they become so
caught up in fighting the fires of the moment
that they cannot really attend to the long-term
threats and risks facing the organization. So the
first soft skill of leadership the hard way is to
cultivate the perspective of Marcus Aurelius
avoid busyness, free up your time, stay focused
on what really matters. Let me put it bluntly
every leader should routinely keep a substantial
portion of his or her timeI would say as much as
50 percentunscheduled. Only when you have
substantial slop in your scheduleunscheduled
timewill you have the space to reflect on what
you are doing, learn from experience, and recover
from your inevitable mistakes. Leaders without
such free time end up tackling issues only when
there is an immediate or visible problem.
Managers typical response to my argument about
free time is, Thats all well and good, but
there are things I have to do. Yet we waste so
much time in unproductive activityit takes an
enormous effort on the part of the leader to keep
free time for the truly important things.

The Discipline Of Daydreaming Nearly every
major decision of my business career was, to some
degree, the result of daydreaming. To be sure,
in every case I had to collect a lot of data, do
detailed analysis, and make a data-based argument
to convince superiors, colleagues and business
partners. But that all came later. In the
beginning, there was the daydream. By
daydreaming, I mean loose, unstructured thinking
with no particular goal in mind. In fact, I
think daydreaming is a distinctive mode of
cognition especially well suited to the complex,
fuzzy problems that characterize a more
turbulent business environment. Daydreaming is
an effective way of coping with complexity. When
a problem has a high degree of complexity, the
level of detail can be overwhelming. The more one
focuses on the details, the more one risks being
lost in them. Every child knows how to
daydream. But many, perhaps most, lose the
capacity as they grow up. Dov Frohman (

Questionable Judgment Skills
161
Thinking, Fast and SlowWhy are experts
inferior to algorithms? One reason is that
experts try to be clever, think outside the box
This may work in the odd case, but more often
than not it reduces validity. The
important conclusion from this research is that
an algorithm that is constructed on the back of
an envelope is often good enough to compete with
an optimally weighted formula and certainly
good enough to outdo expert judgment. It is
wrong to blame anyone for failing to forecast
accurately in an unpredictable world. However, it
seems fair to blame professionals for believing
they can succeed at an impossible task.

Slow (Chapter intuitions Vs. Formulas)

Clinical versus Statistical Prediction There
is now 1996 a meta-analysis of studies of the
comparative efficacy of clinical judgment and
actuarial prediction methods. Of 136 research
studies from a wide variety of predictive
domains, not more than 5 percent show the
clinicians predictive procedure to be more
accurate than a statistical one. Source Paul
Meehl, Clinical versus Statistical Prediction
(1954)

Clinical versus Statistical Prediction Schiedt
showed that 15 of Burgess factors (e.g., age,
marital status, sobriety), when combined by a
simple unweighted addition were about as
successful in predicting criminal recidivism in
500 Bavarian ex-prisoners during a four- to
six-year followup period as was the judgment of
a prison physician. the clinician,
utilizing all this additional information, is no
better at forecasting than the statistical clerk

Unfortunately, Kahneman argues Nobel laureate
Daniel Kahnemans masterpiece Thinking, Fast and
Slow, very often our brain is to lazy to think
slowly and methodically. Instead, we let the fast
way of thinking take over. As a consequence, we
often see imaginary causalities, and thus
fundamentally misunderstand the world. Source
