Developing Content to Deliver Results

Big Dog, Little Dog

Developing high-value content that advances your business strategy and tactics presents two key challenges. The first challenge is to determine what existing content provides the greatest value and, just as important, what does not provide value. The second challenge is to determine what content doesn't exist, but should. To identify and better manage content, use a methodology that shows a "system” view of a process.

Researchers at the University of Florida have created a neural network made up of 25,000 disembodied rat neurons and hooked it up to a flight simulator on a desktop computer. The neurons, which are growing on top of a multi-electrode array (MEA), are fed information about the simulated F-22's horizontal and vertical movements by stimulating the electrodes, causing them to fire in patterns that are then used to control the aircraft.

What Steve Wozniak Learned From Failure

Big Dog, Little Dog

Failure is the rule rather than the exception, and every failure contains information. One of the most misleading lessons imparted by those who have reached their goal is that the ones who win are the ones who persevere. Not always. If you keep trying without learning why you failed, you'll probably fail again and again. Perseverance must be accompanied by the embrace of failure. Failure is what moves you forward. Listen to failure

"There is too much focus today on IT governanceâ€"the reporting, quantifying and measuring of the IT organization's outputâ€"and not enough on IT leadership."

Certifiably Trained

Big Dog, Little Dog

New article from Training magazine: Certifiably Trained. Every company knowsâ€"or should knowâ€"that its human capital really is capital. Employees generate revenue when they deliver services properly or information correctly.
