Moore's law. Moore's law is the observation that, over the history of computing hardware, the number of transistors on integrated circuits doubles approximately every two years.

Moore's law

The law is named after Intel co-founder Gordon E. Moore, who described the trend in his 1965 paper.[1][2][3] His prediction has proven to be accurate, in part because the law is now used in the semiconductor industry to guide long-term planning and to set targets for research and development.[4] The capabilities of many digital electronic devices are strongly linked to Moore's law: processing speed, memory capacity, sensors and even the number and size of pixels in digital cameras.[5] All of these are improving at roughly exponential rates as well. This exponential improvement has dramatically enhanced the impact of digital electronics in nearly every segment of the world economy.[6] Moore's law describes a driving force of technological and social change in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.[7][8] History[edit]

Blue Ocean Strategy

Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne, Professors at INSEAD and Co-Directors of the INSEAD Blue Ocean Strategy Institute. Based on a study of 150 strategic moves spanning more than a hundred years and thirty industries, Kim & Mauborgne argue that companies can succeed not by battling competitors, but rather by creating ″blue oceans″ of uncontested market space. They assert that these strategic moves create a leap in value for the company, its buyers, and its employees, while unlocking new demand and making the competition irrelevant.

Red Queen's Hypothesis. Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place.[3] The original idea of the Red Queen hypothesis was given by Leigh Van Valen in order to explain the "Law of Extinction".[1] Leigh Van Valen showed that in many populations the probability of extinction does not depend on the lifetime of this population.

Red Queen's Hypothesis

In addition, the probability of extinction is constant over millions of years for a given population. This could be explained by the coevolution of species. Indeed, an adaptation in a population of one species (e.g. predators, parasites ...) may change the selection pressure on a population of another species (e.g., prey, hosts), giving rise to an antagonistic coevolution. If this occurs reciprocally, a potential dynamic coevolution may result.[4] The Red Queen at the species level. Challenging received wisdom.

Culture Eats Strategy For Lunch

Culture is a balanced blend of human psychology, attitudes, actions, and beliefs that combined create either pleasure or pain, serious momentum or miserable stagnation. A strong culture flourishes with a clear set of values and norms that actively guide the way a company operates. Employees are actively and passionately engaged in the business, operating from a sense of confidence and empowerment rather than navigating their days through miserably extensive procedures and mind-numbing bureaucracy.

Performance-oriented cultures possess statistically better financial growth, with high employee involvement, strong internal communication, and an acceptance of a healthy level of risk-taking in order to achieve new levels of innovation. Getting Things Done. Getting Things Done (GTD) es un método de gestión de las actividades y el título de un libro de David Allen que en español se ha titulado 'Organízate con eficacia'. GTD se basa en el principio de que una persona necesita liberar su mente de las tareas pendientes guardándolas en un lugar específico.

De este modo, no es necesario recordar lo que hay que hacer y se puede concentrar en realizar las tareas. Sobre qué trata GTD[editar] A diferencia de otros expertos en gestión del tiempo, Allen no se centra en el establecimiento de prioridades. En su lugar, él insta a la creación de listas de tareas específicas para cada contexto, por ejemplo, una lista de llamadas telefónicas pendientes o recados que hacer en la ciudad.

La psicología de GTD se basa en hacer fácil el almacenamiento, seguimiento y revisión de toda la información relacionada con las cosas que necesitas hacer. Occam's razor.

Strangling Innovation: Tesla versus “Rent Seekers” The greatest number of jobs is created when startups create a new market – one where the product or service never existed before or is radically more convenient.
