Divergent thinkers

Divergent thinkers

I watched the movie “Divergent” while thinking that today’s societies have a Pareto-chart distribution that matches quite well the distribution of the five factions as Abnegation (the selfless), Amity (the peaceful), Candor (the honest), Dauntless (the brave), and Erudite (the intelligent). The one category that was not chosen by anyone in the movie was “poor and sick” and yet there were many of them living on the streets.

Lean Six Sigma System challenges and opportunities

Lean Six Sigma System challenges and opportunities

I will not provide an exhaustive discussion at this time, but rather some main points that might attract the attention of companies, organizations, practitioners, software providers etc. about what we are missing in creating a Lean Six Sigma System. What are some of the Lean Six Sigma System’s characteristics?

The day when dinosaurs’ monopoly disappeared

The day when dinosaurs’ monopoly disappeared

For the dinosaurs, it was a calm day without any visible signs that dramatic events were going to happen that would lead to the end of their existence. Since they have been living for at least 150 million years on Earth, the entire world was theirs. There were no human beings therefore there were no computers, WiFi, Twitter, Facebook, satellites, or any known type of communications that would have shown them ahead of time what the future events will be.

Brain functionality and modularity changes in a learning environment

Brain functionality and modularity changes in a learning environment

Understanding the changes in brain’s structure as a result of learning and adaptation is pivotal because it will provide us with an understanding about the characteristic flexibility of our brain to adapt, and how we can live with a healthier “brain” for longer time.

Learning alters the brain, but how can we proof its positive change? Also, the brain stores energy, but is learning increasing the amount of energy or what kind of improvements will happen? What will happen after we will learn something new? Learning of abstract information will also induce morphological changes in cortical structures.

Strategic planning and leadership

Strategic planning and leadership

Previously, we discussed the behavioral characteristics that are expected from leaders in the 21st Century. Leadership strategic planning in a company or organization involves setting goals, determining actions to achieve the goals, and mobilizing resources to execute those actions.

Strategic planning of mLearning program delivery

We enjoyed when the Smartphone appeared in our lives, although we still have some challenges with "touch" functions. From the common phones to tablets, information started to be delivered in real time wherever we are, and at any time of day or night.

Carried with us, and stored in several chips, we have our whole personal information including friends and email accounts. Now, we have even larger data warehouses in the Cloud. eLearning is also known as distance learning because it is outside of the classroom. When the device becomes mobile, whether it is PDA, Netbook, Notebook, Tablet, MP3 player, eBook Reader or Smartphone, we start to see and experience those differences on mLearning because of the way the information is delivered. We will leave the notebook, because this mobile device is a bridge between the Desktop eLearning and mobile learning.

Strategic planning and Lean Six Sigma

Strategic planning is a process companies go through usually once a year and the plan is reviewed at least once every quarter. This process has inputs such as:

• Company mission

• Previous Strategic Plan and Key Performance Indices (KPI) results

• Market forecast

• Existing technology and skills

• Capacity constraints: human resources, equipment, financial resources

Entropic neo-cortex and world connectivity

Entropic neo-cortex and world connectivity

Human connectivity through entropic processes refers to the existence of a consciousness state. The latest studies performed by using more capable equipment can detect the entropic processes at brain level. Still, there is more to be discovered before we will completely understand all the complex cognitive processes.

Law of Entropy starting from molecular level (Law 5 Article 2)

Law of Entropy starting from molecular level (Law 5 Article 2)

(62)

At molecular level within any organism there are normal changes for life support. The flow of nutrients as well as body’s reaction to those nutrients has engaged flawlessly to properly support the life and wellbeing of any being. If we do not consider the past, but only the present state of an organism since the past had inputs that might be impossible to determine, then Markov chain at molecular level (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Continuous-time_Markov_chain_) is nothing more than a state to state process that depends on time, space and energy.

Law of Entropy and Order Production Business

Law of Entropy and Order Production Business

(61)

The last law that I consider as primordial therefore was left at the end, is representing also BITSPEC’s holistic approach to education in general and business processes in particular, as the Law of Entropy. I will try to work from a balanced structure approach on how our mind/brain and organic matter have self-development as matter to the outside exposure.

Change Management- Embracing the Changes (Lesson 3, Article 4)

60

This last article  "Embracing the Changes" is dedicated to people  who helped me  to build the web site from a conceptual design that has as title  "The Tree of Life". Our journey lasted for two years and it is our visual representation on how people who did not know each other, met in this large space and had the passion to join a common cause which was to build a supportive system for education. I would like to thank  you all.

Change Management as an Evolutionary Process (Lesson 3, Article 3)

Change Management as an Evolutionary Process (Lesson 3, Article 3)

59

It might come as a surprise, but an evolutionary process in change management is the result of subjective ontology. I will not consider objective ontology and their impact on processes as part of an evolutionary process because economics tried very hard to become part of natural science as genetics, chemistry, biology, physics, yet it is the result of the subjective ontology that is causing these large discrepancies between populations. If we really want to work towards closing those gaps, a deeper insight is required into how feelings and emotions are formed, and their impact at brain and mind levels.

Change Management as an expression of care (Lesson 3, Article 2)

Change Management as an expression of care (Lesson 3, Article 2)

(58) There is noise and silence, then noise and silence again, and after many cycles we finally come to understand what Chief Seattle said: “The earth does not belong to us. We belong to the earth” and “We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children”.

Change Management as an expression of art and culture (Lesson 3, Article 1)

Change Management as an expression of art and culture (Lesson 3, Article 1)

(57) The most contradictory topic in today’s business world is the change management concept. The next blogs will be about change management, and I will be looking to find the origins of why changes are mainly associated with something disruptive and abrupt as opposed to calm and peace. From the start, one question that we should ask ourselves is why do we reach a level that will eventually require changes? Why can’t we just do what is good and positive from the beginning rather than making significant changes towards the end, and how do we know when the end is being reached? Are there some standards visible or maybe invisible that signals “End of the Road”?

Hope for Future Generations (Lesson 2, Article 5)

Hope for Future Generations (Lesson 2, Article 5)

(56)

Civilizations have existed in the last 10,000 years because of environmental conditions that have started to reach a level of highly optimized transformation making possible for energy to be stored for longer time. Food through seeds made possible the diversification of taste, textures, colors, and shapes therefore once the main contributor to life development and existence became abundant and widely available, the human being had the opportunity to settle and populate mainly those geographical areas.

Hope for Peace (Lesson 2, Article 4)

“Poverty in a democracy is as much to be preferred to so-called prosperity under despots as freedom is to slavery”-Democritus (460BC-370BC) As we approach the end of this year, new horizons and hopes are shaping our common future, and it might be worth to remember that Democritus was one of the first philosophers who discovered the atom.

Hope in Universal Knowledge of free aspirations (Lesson 2, Article 3)

Hope in Universal Knowledge of free aspirations (Lesson 2, Article 3)

(54)

As many of us will celebrate Christmas as a time of peace and understanding of each other, new hopes will shape the future, and new symbols will warm our hearts as Lisa Hayward did it through a representation of an imaginary character. Through times, we came to share our knowledge in the world of Astrophysics and Astrobiology, by trying to find new meanings and understandings of who we are and where are we coming from. There are chances that life or different forms of life exist on other planets located in other galaxies and dreams help us to aspire to new horizons and new beginnings. It is the hope and balance of our Universe that holds us together through billions of years. If there is anywhere we should see our futures will be into stars that shine and light that has travelled so much to reach us, here on Earth. We are all fortunate to live together on this planet and the best that we can all do is to respect and cherish each and every moment that we get to know and help each other.

Hope in “The Old Man and the Sea” (Lesson 2 Article 2)

53

“It is silly not to hope, besides I believe it is a sin." The Old Man and the Sea” by E. Hemingway

Hope can be seen in the eyes of each and every living being ,the connection to life and the surroundings which are reflected also, in the incommensurable love that exists within and outside us. As we are born with the innate quality of hope for the future, that image is being transferred from the brain and reflected into our eyes. Hemingway’s novella is one of the most appropriate books as it sets the stage for personal achievement that cannot be taken away because it is something that each one of us can only find individually.

Hope as Natural Balance (Lesson 2 Article 1)

Hope as Natural Balance (Lesson 2 Article 1)

(52)

Native American culture is rich in symbolic representations and belief of our connectivity to Mother Nature. Hope is symbolized by an outside circle represented by the eight pointed star enclosed in a circle and containing a circle. Native American Indians referred to the Hope symbol as Star Knowledge which included the ability to mark events to come based on celestial alignments, providing hope for the future.
