Why is Values Based Leadership so Powerful?Switch & Shift

The idea that business should be value driven is an increasingly influential one, and rightly so. The days when we could be content to make profit our only value, and when we could delude ourselves that that in itself was not a value judgment, are far behind us, and values are nowbeing used to anchor leadership in all sorts of businesses.

Making the best use of this, like any insight, involves understanding why it works. Fortunately management is a field that draws on many disciplines, and in this case we can learn much from French philosopher Albert Camus.

You need Good Data before you can have Big Data

Analyzing data can help businesses to make smarter, more real-time decisions based on historical facts and forward-looking predictions or forecasts. So while the new generation of business users understand the value and nuances of data and want to use it to drive their decisions, the first step to achieving this is to collect the right data in the right way.

Shivon Zilis – Machine Intelligence

A few years ago, investors and startups were chasing “big data” (I helped put together a landscape on that industry). Now we’re seeing a similar explosion of companies calling themselves artificial intelligence, machine learning, or somesuch — collectively I call these “machine intelligence” (I’ll get into the definitions in a second). Our fund,Bloomberg Beta, which is focused on the future of work, has been investing in these approaches. I created this landscape to start to put startups into context. I’m a thesis-oriented investor and it’s much easier to identify crowded areas and see white space once the landscape has some sort of taxonomy.

Is GDP dead?

Georgia Levenson Keohane says GDP misses – or worse still, externalizes – the costs and value of a number of critical elements of well-being.

Het BNP is niet heiligmakend. De SVI (Sociale Vooruitgang Index) is net zo belangrijk zo niet belangrijker. En wat blijkt? Noorwegen scoort het best als de SVI als basis genomen wordt, de VS (nr 1 als het om BNP gaat) komt niet eens voor in de top 10. 
Het wordt tijd dat ook de Nederlandse regering gaat beseffen dat groei in SVI belangrijker is dan groei in BNP.

Toekomst van werk, een sombere of een mooie toekomst?

Verontrustende berichten via diverse media komen naar ons toe: over 5 tot 10 jaar is het aantal banen voor de beroepsbevolking met 45% afgenomen. Terwijl het Kabinet vol vertrouwen uitspreekt dat de economie aantrekt, zien we de aantal werklozen niet echt dalen en worden er overal bijeenkomsten georganiseerd over de Toekomst van Werk. In het Pakhuis de Zwijger was een serie van bijeenkomsten rond dit thema, er ging een VPRO-Tegenlicht uitzending over met de drukbezochte, bijbehorende meetups overal in het land en Permanent Bèta had het er ook met elkaar over. Het houdt de gemoederen van de beroepsbevolking wel aardig bezig.
