The root of our problem is not that were in a
Great Recession or a Great Stagnation, but
rather that we are in the early throes of a
Great Restructuring. Our technologies are racing
ahead, but our skills and organizations are
lagging behind. Source Race AGAINST the

4/Automate This How Algorithms Came To Rule The
World
14
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
Rule the World
15
Robot Wars!The combination of new market rules
and new technology was turning the stock market
into, in effect, a war of robots. Michael
Lewis, Golmans Geek Tragedy, Vanity Fair, 09.13
16
Michael Vassar/MetaMed founder is creating a
better information system and new class of people
to manage it. Almost all health care people get
is going to be donehopefullyby algorithms
within a decade or two. We used to rely on
doctors to be experts, and weve crowded them
into being something like factory workers, where
their job is to see one patient every 8 to 11
minutes and implement a by-the-book solution. Im
talking about creating a new expert
professionmedical quants, almost like hedgefund
managers, who could do the high-level analytical
work of directing all the information that flows
into the worlds hard drives. Doctors would now
be aided by Vassars new information experts who
would be aided by advanced artificial
intelligence.New York /0624.13

isolated market transactions to deeply connected
and sustained social relationships. This basic

  • 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)

6/ Gamification
24
Gamification Gamification presents the best
tools humanity has ever had to create and sustain
engagement in people. Source Gabe
Zichermann Joselin Linder, Gamification How
Leaders Leverage Game Mechanics to Crush the
Competition
25
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
Broken Why Games Make Us Better and How They
Can Change the World
26
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
a Gadget
27
7/Big Data
28
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
29
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
Power to Predict Who Will Click, Buy, Lie, or Die

10/It IS The Game!
37
If I could have chosen not to tackle the IBM
culture head-on, I probably wouldnt have. My
bias coming in was toward strategy, analysis and
measurement. In comparison, changing the attitude
and behaviors of hundreds of thousands of people
is very, very hard. Yet I came to see in my time
at IBM that culture isnt just one aspect of the
game IT IS THE GAME. Lou Gerstner, Who Says
Elephants Cant Dance
38
WSJ/0910.13 What matters most to a company over
time, strategy or culture? Dominic Barton, MD,
McKinsey Co. Culture.
39
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,
0313.09, page 1
40
I told my board that if they want to get the
share price 50 in 12-18 months, I can do it
without raising a sweat. But it will destroy the
longterm prospects of the companyand theyll
have to do it without me. CEO, large (10B)

12/Excellence NOT an Aspiration
47
EXCELLENCE is not an "aspiration. EXCELLENCE
is THE NEXT FIVE MINUTES.
48
EXCELLENCE is not an "aspiration." EXCELLENCE is
THE NEXT FIVE MINUTES. EXCELLENCE is your next
conversation. Or not. EXCELLENCE is your next
meeting. Or not. EXCELLENCE is shutting up and
listeningreally listening. Or not. EXCELLENCE is
your next customer contact. Or not. EXCELLENCE is
saying Thank you for something small. Or
not. EXCELLENCE is the next time you shoulder
responsibility and apologize. Or not. EXCELLENCE
is waaay over-reacting to a screw-up. Or
not. EXCELLENCE is the flowers you brought to
work today. Or not. EXCELLENCE is lending a hand
to an outsider whos fallen behind schedule. Or
not. EXCELLENCE is bothering to learn the way
folks in finance or IS or HR think. Or
not. EXCELLENCE is waaay over-preparing for a
3-minute presentation. Or not. EXCELLENCE is
turning insignificant tasks into models of
EXCELLENCE. Or not.

EXCELLENCE is not an institutional choice.
EXCELLENCE is A PERSONAL CHOICE.

15/The Shareholder Value Myth
58
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,

Law school, in The Shareholder Value Myth How
Putting Shareholders First Harms Investors,
Corporations, and the Public

Im always stopping by our stores at least 25
a week. Im also in other places Home Depot,
Whole Foods, Crate Barrel. I try to be a
sponge to pick up as much as I can. Howard
SchultzSource Fortune, Secrets of Greatness
62
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. Dov
Frohman ( Robert Howard), Leadership The Hard
Way Why Leadership Cant Be TaughtAnd How You
Can Learn It Anyway (Chapter 5, The Soft Skills
Of Hard Leadership)

23/Questionable Judgment Skills
83
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 formulaand 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.
Source Daniel Kahneman, Thinking, Fast and
Slow (Chapter intuitions Vs. Formulas)
84
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

The Memories
That Matter The people you developed who went on
to stellar accomplishments inside or outside
the company. The (no more than) two or three
people you developed who went on to create
stellar institutions of their own. The long shots
(people with a certain something) you bet on
who surprised themselvesand your peers. The
people of all stripes who 2/5/10/20 years
later say You made a difference in my life,
Your belief in me changed everything. The sort
of/character of people you hired in general. (And
the bad apples you chucked out despite some
stellar traits.) A handful of projects (a half
dozen at most) you doggedly pursued that
still make you smile and which fundamentally
changed the way things are done inside or
outside the company/industry. The supercharged
camaraderie of a handful of Great Teams aiming
to change the world.

We live with a value system that I call the
Extrovert Idealthe omnipresent belief that the
ideal self is gregarious, alpha, and comfortable
in the spotlight. The archetypal extrovert
prefers action to contemplation, risk-taking to
heed-taking, certainty to doubt. We think that
we value individuality, but all too often we
admire one type of individual Introversion is
now a second-class personality trait. The
Extrovert Ideal has been documented in many
studies. Talkative people, for example, are rated
as smarter, better looking, more interesting, and
more desirable as friends. Velocity of speech
counts as well as volume We rank fast talkers as
more competent and likeable than slow ones. But
we make a grave mistake to embrace the Extrovert
Ideal so unthinkingly. As the science
journalist Winifred Gallagher writes, The glory
of the disposition that stops to consider stimuli
rather than rushing to engage with them is its
long association with intellectual and artistic
achievement. Neither E mc squared or Paradise
Lost was dashed off by a party animal. Even in
less obviously introverted occupations, like
finance, politics, and activism, some of the
greatest leaps forward were made by introverts
figures like Eleanor Roosevelt, Warren Buffett
and Gandhi achieved what they did not in spite of
but because of their introversion. Susan Cain,
Quiet The Power of Introverts in a World That
Cant Stop Talking
156
If you are a manager, remember that one third to
one half of your workforce is probably
introverted, whether they appear that way or not.
Think twice about how you design your
organizations office space. Dont expect
introverts to get jazzed up about open office
plans or, for that matter, lunchtime birthday
parties or teambuilding retreats. Make the most
of introverts strengths these are the people
who can help you think deeply, strategize, solve
complex problems, and spot canaries in your coal
mine. Also remember the dangers of the new
groupthink. If its creativity youre after, ask
your employees to solve problems alone before
sharing their ideas Dont mistake assertiveness
or elegance for good ideas. If you have a
proactive workforce (and I hope you do), remember
that they may perform better under an introverted
leader than under an extroverted or charismatic
one. Susan Cain, Quiet The Power of
Introverts in a World That Cant Stop Talking

If the regimental commander lost most of his 2nd
lieutenants and 1st lieutenants and captains and

battlefield is dependent to an extraordinary
degree on its Sergeants and Chief Petty Officers.

52/A 15-Point Human Capital Asset Development
Manifesto
186
A 15-Point Human Capital Asset Development
Manifesto World Strategy Forum/ The New Rules
Reframing Capitalism Tom Peters/Seoul/0615.12
187
A 15-Point Human Capital Development
Manifesto 1. Corporate social responsibility
starts at homei.e., inside the enterprise!
MAXIMIZING GDD/Gross Domestic Development of the
workforce is the primary source of mid-term and
beyond growth and profitabilityand maximizes
national productivity and wealth.
188
2. Regardless of the transient external
situation, development of human capital is
always the 1 priority. This is true in general,
in particular in difficult times which demand
resilienceand uniquely true in this age in which
IMAGINATIVE brainwork is de facto the only
plausible survival strategy for higher wage
nations. (Generic brainwork, traditional and
dominant white-collar activities, is
increasingly being performed by exponentially
enhanced artificial intelligence.)
189
3. Three-star generals and admirals (and
symphony conductors and sports coaches and police
chiefs and fire chiefs) OBSESS about training.
Why is it an almost dead certainty that in a
random 30-minute interview you are unlikely to
hear a CEO touch upon this topic? (I would hazard
a guess that most CEOs see IT investments as a
strategic necessity, but see training expenses
as a necessary evil.) 4. Proposition/axiom
The CTO/Chief TRAINING Officer is arguably the 1
staff job in the enterprise, at least on a par
with, say, the CFO or CIO or head of RD. (Again,
external circumstancessee immediately aboveare
forcing our hand.)
190
5. The training budget takes precedence over
the capital budget. PERIOD. Its easier fun to
get you picture taken next to a hew machine. But
how do you get a photo of a new and much improved
attitude in a key distribution center? But the
odds are 251 that the new attitude will add more
to the bottom line than will the glorious
state-of-the-art machine. 6. Human capital
development should routinely sit atop any agenda
or document associated with enterprise strategy.
Most any initiative you undertake should formally
address implications for and contributions to
human capital asset development.
191
7. Every individual on the payroll should have
a benchmarked professional growth strategy. Every
leader at every level should be evaluated in no
small measure on the collective effectiveness of
individual growth strategiesthat is, each
individuals absolute growth is of direct
relevance to every leaders assessed performance.

192
11. The national education infrastructurefrom
kindergarten to continuing adult educationmay
well be National Priority 1. Moreover, the
educational infrastructure must be altered
radically to underpin support for the creative
jobs that will be more or less the sole basis of
future employment and national growth and wealth
creation.
193
13. The great majority of us work in small
enterprises hence national growth objectives
based upon human capital development MUST
necessarily extend downward to even 1-person
enterprises. Collective productivity improvement
through human capital development among small
businesses has an unimaginably largeand
underappreciatedpayoff. While many small
business appreciate the notion, they are
unprepared to take the steps necessary to engage
their, say, dozen employees in seeking
productivity improvements.
