The Case Against a General AI in 2019
Dec. 27, 2018 - By: Byron Reese
“Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) is either possible or it isn’t. The chasm that divides the two viewpoints couldn’t be wider because it has to do with our core beliefs about the nature of reality, the identity of the self, and the essence of being human.”
Why You Don’t Need VC to Build a Billion Dollar Business
Dec. 27, 2018 - By: Dileep Rao, Ph.D.
“Silicon Valley venture capital is like a very successful lottery. […] For entrepreneurs who want to reduce the role of luck in their success and improve their odds, here are six reasons why you don’t need VC to build a billion-dollar business.”
The Silent Killer of Founder Owned Businesses
Dec. 27, 2018 - By: D. Scot Hunsaker
“A recent Wall Street Journal/Vistage poll showed that half of all business owners say that they have a succession plan, but only 25 percent have actually put pen to paper and written it down. I would contend that if you haven’t written down your succession plan you don’t really have one. It doesn’t have to be this way.”
One Room, One Team, Different Purposes
Dec. 27, 2018 - By: Carlos Valdes-Dapena
“We preach collaboration, talk and train teamwork, but all the while organizations are optimized to manage, foster and reward individual effort. Collaboration is second- or third-nature for a large majority of us and this predisposes us to consistently revert to our more selfish ways, especially where we’re rewarded and recognized to do so.”
Erasing Institutional Bias: Structural Change, Starting with You
Nov. 14, 2018 - By: Tiffany Jana & Ashley Diaz Mejias
“In our work with organizations, we have found that erasing institutional bias is a difficult task. When bias is operating at a systems level, it can seem impossible to change. But with humility, patience, and some tools, change is possible.”
Defy Ordinary, Exploit Imperfection, and Captivate your Customers
Nov. 14, 2018 - By: Stan Phelps & David Rendall
“As we look at what successful companies are doing, it’s natural to emulate them. This has even been institutionalized in the process of benchmarking. … The problem is that when everyone in an industry starts copying the leaders, then, over time, the entire industry starts to look the same, feel the same, and sound the same. There are no differences. Nothing distinguishes one brand from another.”
Why We Must Evolve, or Die
Nov. 14, 2018 - By: Tom Triumph
“It really comes down to a decision. You either ride things out, fight for the status quo and hope the changes you’re sensing are going to slow (they won’t), or you think about where the world is headed and change to get yourself there. The journey is difficult, but the direction is clear. Evolve or die.”
Don’t Stress: When Doing and Spending Less Can Help Your Business Get Ahead
Oct. 10, 2018 - By: Stephen Wunker & Jennifer Luo Law
“Innovation doesn’t always have to be more—more flavors, more horsepower, more memory space, more bells and whistles. New solutions can excel in their simplicity, earning customer love and saving money along the way—and, yes, that is just as deserving of being called 'innovative' as a new blockchain game or genetic therapy.”
Business Must Make Life Better
Sept. 19, 2018 - By: Richard Hardyment
“We desperately need a more human form of capitalism that places people at its heart—whether that’s farmers supplying raw materials, factory workers creating goods, or shoppers buying and consuming products and services. We need business to embrace a wellbeing purpose with an audacious ambition: to make life feel better.”
What Makes a Change Maker a Change Maker?
Sept. 19, 2018 - By: Amy Radin
“Economic and social stability depend upon innovation. The friction of capital and information, and the impediments that used to be caused by distance, time, and space are gone, but getting from imagination to execution continues to be full of challenge. Change makers close the gap between napkin-back idea and real-world impact.”
