Estimating change the right way: Approaching the post-pandemic world

Noble Horvath

Jeff Bezos was on stage at a press event, when a reporter asked him, “Jeff, what do you think is going to change most in the next 10 years?” Jeff replied, “That’s a good question. But a better question is: What’s not going to change in the next 10–20 years?”

As we get consumed in forecasting what is going to change in how we live, how or where we work, and other related predictions—many of which may well turn out to be true—it is equally important to not lose sight of things that may never actually change. For instance, in Human Resources (HR), which concerns itself with how people work, it is important to not get swayed by forecasts of what might be, at the cost of losing sight of what is.

Organisations globally are participating in a century-long experiment of how effectively machines could replace people at work—a transition

Technology keeps us connected, but all the time?

What does instant gratification mean when it comes to the workplace? According to peoplegoal.com, it is defined as “the experience of satisfaction upon receiving reward immediately after an action. People desire to experience gratitude, fulfillment, or pleasure ‘immediately’ or without delay.”

In many instances, having information in front of us via the Internet provides acceptable instant gratification. For instance, you are sitting in a bar or restaurant having a conversation or partaking in trivia and a question comes up that you can’t answer. What do you do? Why, you grab your phone and look it up, of course. Voila! There’s your answer. Or perhaps after a long day at work, you want to watch the show you missed. Boom – turn on your smart television, and you can watch it immediately.

But when did we, as a society, start having expectations that people work 24 hours a day, 7 days

Leader board mirrors top of world rankings and other takeaways from Day 1 of Tour Championship | Golf World

Noble Horvath

The first day of the last week of the season is finished. Sure, this may not exactly feel like a grand finale, with no fans at East Lake and a U.S. Open looming less than two weeks away. But it’s the Tour Championship all the same, and with the FedEx Cup in the balance it’s still the richest week in golf by something like $60 million . . . so, yeah, a rather important week indeed.

This is the second year of the new hybrid format, where the points leader heading into the week started the tournament at 10 under, the guy in second at eight under, etc. What results is a weekend-afternoon feel from the jump, with “leaders” playing from ahead as soon as they hit their first tee shots and “chasers” needing low ones to close the gap. So far, the guys who came in on top—Dustin Johnson
