Images processed 60K faster? No! And more…

Clark Quinn

Recently, I’ve run into the claim that images are processed 60K times faster than text. Just search on “images processed 60K times faster than text” You’ll get lots of citations, and a few debunkings. In use, words are practiced enough to be recognized as a whole, serving as icons; they’re not repeatedly processed from letters into words. The post Images processed 60K faster?

Signifying change

Clark Quinn

There is now quite a bit available about signifying change with ritual. In the former, they may be becoming a member of the community, but it’s about changing personal behavior regardless. And, to be clear, here I’m talking secular change.).

Reflections on the Whistler process

Dave Snowden

The theme of design was always there from the intiail conception, but the increasing comodisation of design into the linera process of much design thinking creating a context for the programme. We need to look at a non-linear process, one which engages a wider group of people.

Using Agile Processes to Develop AI-Based Solutions

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Key to the agile approach is the involvement of the product’s target end-users early in the process to make sure that the product under development is responsive to their requirements. . AI systems are designed to sense, respond and adapt to a changing environment.

Blockchain and Business Process Transformation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

One of the most important such lenses is the impact of IT on business processes, that is, on how work is actually done across the various functions of an organization. . Examining the impact of IT over the past several decades through a process point of view, one can identify three distinct phases: first came process automation in the early years of IT, followed around the 1990s by enterprise-wide process reengineering and management. Business process automation.

Job-Killing Processes

Martijn Linssen

I’ve been wrestling with a thought lately – if organizations are complex systems, and complex systems are continuously self-organizing, then why do we believe formal processes make these complex systems more efficient?

Nothing Has Changed. Everything Has Changed.

Charles Jennings

It’s about the output rather than process. If learning professionals and learning departments don’t adapt and change, Quinn argues, they will be revealed not simply as having no clothes, but as being so out of step that they will wither and die, or be removed from the value chain.

Design the process, not the outcome

Dave Snowden

Coevolution in biology occurs when two parties exert selective evolutionary pressures on each other as a result of which they are changed. Once that change happens, it cannot be reversed and there are many examples in nature.

Real change

Euen Semple

So much organisational change fails because either it is a token gesture at an organisational level, or people don't buy into the change individually. I am convinced that all change emanates from the individual. Structural and procedural changes can help but unless people change nothing changes. There is an intimacy about real personal change that most in corporate life back away from, or sanitise with process.

Changing People

Euen Semple

I've expressed concern previously about use the phrase "driving change" but now realise that my true discomfort goes deeper. What bothers me is the underlying assumption that we can change other people - or have the right to try. We can change our own behaviours, we can change processes and structures, but we can’t change people - only they can.

Innovation is not a repeatable process

Harold Jarche

Euen Semple

Two conversations yesterday reminded me of how important training or other forms of support are when implementing large change projects whether involving new technology or new processes. The second conversation was again about a big change effort but this time the plan was to offer an extensive programme of coaching. Coaching targeted at helping people understand the why of the new processes and to grapple with what the changes mean to them.

Measuring Culture Change

Clark Quinn

Someone recently asked how you would go about measuring culture change, and I thought it’s an interesting question. So it’s plausible that you’d want to change, and if you do, you’d like to know how it’s going. As a process, I think about what I might do before, during, and after any culture change initiative. Culture change is a journey, not an event, after all ;). The post Measuring Culture Change appeared first on Learnlets.

About this change to the site…

Clark Quinn

It had some problems, but I was afraid to change it because of the repercussions. A little background… My ISP, a good friend, colleague, and mentor, was making some changes to how my sites are implemented. It made sense, because if anyone could get access to my admin code, they could not only change the look and feel (easy to fix), they could alter the code and put in malicious stuff. Suddenly, it’s easy to change the site, without coding!

But on balance, such fears appear to be unfounded, noted the World Bank in a comprehensive recent report on The Changing Nature of Work.

There is much busyness in business around change. Change theories, change consultants, change strategies, and lots of pretty diagrams. Don''t you know "change is the new constant"!?
