We would say "acquire groceries," for example, not "first take care of shopping for groceries. " Events refer to something that has already happened regardless of the process (if they are catching events) or as a result of the process (if they are throwing events). For this reason, we use the [object] and make the [verb] passive in voice, so we write "hunger noticed. " BPMN does not require you to model start and end events for a process - you can leave them out - but if you model a start event, you must model an end event for each path. The same is true for end events, which require start events. SPT v1n3n4 - Collingridge and the Control of Educational Computer Technology.

Hallmarks of a good technical leader

Here are some highlights from our chat. How do you define technical leadership (as opposed to leadership in general)? Technical leaders don’t just generically inspire people to do things, but are capable of communicating with technical stakeholders and engineers in language that they understand. Technical leadership is about understanding the technical context under which decisions are being made, and asking questions to help make sure the right decisions are being made given the technical concerns. What are some particular challenges for engineers when they become managers? Building Teams For Rapid Innovation. It’s no surprise that effective innovation can be challenging for established organizations.

Building Teams For Rapid Innovation

The conventional wisdom—as articulated in classic tomes of business wisdom like The Innovator’s Dilemma—suggests that powerful organizational incentives lead large enterprises to prioritize incremental growth in mature business lines, instead of investing in disruptive technologies that may pay off years down the line but are barely a blip on today’s P&L. Executives today are well aware of the risk of being left behind. Innovation cycles are shorter than ever, propelled in part by Silicon Valley and its army of startups and technologists with their crosshairs on every industry under the sun.

This past Thursday the New York Times vomited up a hit piece on little ol’ me – a guy who has been doing stand-up comedy for nearly 20 years and thought maybe that comedy could be used to inform and inspire audiences, rather than just make fun of the differences between men and women. John Coltrane Draws a Picture Illustrating the Mathematics of Music. Physicist and saxophonist Stephon Alexander has argued in his many public lectures and his book The Jazz of Physics that Albert Einstein and John Coltrane had quite a lot in common. Alexander in particular draws our attention to the so-called “Coltrane circle,” which resembles what any musician will recognize as the “Circle of Fifths,” but incorporates Coltrane’s own innovations. Coltrane gave the drawing to saxophonist and professor Yusef Lateef in 1967, who included it in his seminal text, Repository of Scales and Melodic Patterns. Where Lateef, as he writes in his autobiography, sees Coltrane's music as a "spiritual journey" that "embraced the concerns of a rich tradition of autophysiopsychic music," Alexander sees “the same geometric principle that motivated Einstein’s" quantum theory.
