A 10-Year Study Reveals What Great Executives Know and Do Despite the huge impact executives can have on their organizations, failure rates remain high. Prescriptions for what to do continue to fall short. So we wondered: If we closely studied the executives who succeed in top jobs once appointed, could we identify distinguishing features that set them apart and defined their success? How does misinformation spread online? In the run up to the 2013 Italian elections, a social media post exposing the corruption of parliament went viral. Italian politicians were quietly certain that, win or lose, they would be financially secure by taking money from the taxpayer. Parliament had quietly passed a special welfare bill specially designed to protect policy-makers by ensuring them an incredible unemployment package should they lose their seat in the upcoming election.

A New Theory of Time: X-tention is Simultaneously Discrete and Continuous Time has been conceived mainly as either discrete or continuous, but not widely as a simultaneity of the two. I would like to articulate a new theory of time in which time is reconceived as a ‘raw material’ whose natural state is both discrete and continuous. This is a “middle third” position that extends Husserl’s theory of internal time consciousness by being a new form of time in the middle between and connecting retention-protention (which are continuous) and recollection-expectation (which are discrete). X-tention is this middle kind of time, existing in a primordial state that is simultaneously discrete and continuous, with the capacity to solidify into either in the case of a specific situation. This is much like another fundamental physical element, light, which exists in a superposition state of both particle and wave before collapsing into one or the other per observation.

His examples range from those that very few comprehend (Artificial Intelligeance and biotechnology) to those which are now ubiquitous (smartphones). Crucially, however, is Professor Schwab's view that "Constant connection may deprive us of one of life's most important assets: the time to pause, reflect and engage in meaningful conversation." It is a refreshing observation - one not generally captured by self-professed technology enthusiasts - and is a topic worth examining as communication becomes increasingly instantaneous. Although technology provides the world with many opportunities, Millennials must navigate a world where fast and superficial supersede consideration and depth.
The Industries That Are Being Disrupted the Most by Digital We’re at a critical time for the digital economy. Digital is no longer the shiny front end of the organization – it’s integrated into every aspect of today’s companies.
