40: Pivot

2019-04-1112:04

Whilst Pivot is a more recent terminology often used in the context of a startup, it applies equally to many aspects of our lives, our endeavours or our own groups within companies of all sizes. We look at when, how, why and importantly if you should pivot and what the cost might be if you do.
39: Influence

39: Influence

2019-03-3112:02

When you're asked to direct a group of people sometimes you aren't their direct manager. In those cases you're expected to influence without authority. We look at how it's different, why it's hard and how you can go about it.
38: Ideas

38: Ideas

2019-02-2811:17

Steve Jobs once said, the best ideas have to win. We unpack what that actually means in practice and ultimately look at how you can tell what the best idea actually can look like.
37: Owner

37: Owner

2019-02-1713:45

When you're delivering a project understanding who the actual owner is or owners are is crucial. We look at how to figure that out, and how to tell projects that can't figure that out.
36: Familiarity

36: Familiarity

2019-01-2011:56

We dive into why familiarity seems to breed contempt, why first impressions are the most misleading and demonstrate my Latin is terrible.
35: Competency

35: Competency

2019-01-1214:50

In every broad discipline it's become impossible for one person to be competent in all aspects. Organisationally speaking, we look at how we could ensure a collective competency is maintained.
34: Care

34: Care

2018-12-3011:37

There's always something that someone expects you to care about, but the dimensions of care we put our energy into can make or break us.
33: Sinking

33: Sinking

2018-12-2012:41

Looking at how maintenance teams function can reveal a lot about the system they're maintaining. We dive in the consequences of poor design and long term operational costs.
32: Cloud

32: Cloud

2018-12-1014:30

With operational technology relying more and more on desktop computer platforms for control and monitoring, just how much can be put in the cloud safely?
31: Self

31: Self

2018-11-0812:05

Understanding yourself and self reflection can be good thing, but it can go too far. How far is far enough and how do you know when to stop?
30: Lists

30: Lists

2018-09-2709:58

Lists can be a great way of tracking things to do and random thoughts and ideas. But if they're abused they can drag you down into list-hell.
29: Purpose

29: Purpose

2018-09-1308:37

Purpose and Passion are inter-related but in ways that might not be obvious at first glance. We unpack why purpose is critical and how it changes everything.
28: Tools

28: Tools

2018-07-1211:11

Some people are obsessed with the tools they use to get the job done. How much better is the best tool vs the right tool and how much time should be spend seeking out the perfect tool for the job?
27: Creators

There are creators, consumers and regurgitators of knowledge and information. Which and you? And why I think you should spend at some of your time creating something.
26: Risk

26: Risk

2018-03-0110:20

Metrics can be very useful if they are carefully chosen. Badly chosen metrics can do more harm than good, so how can you tell the difference?

Teamwork is often thrown around as a concept, but do we each really understand whether we're team players or not? What will you choose?
