Welcome!

I’m looking forward to:

  Upcoming MOOCs

Sadly, I have suspended all my future MOOCs until further notice, thanks to a new corollary to “Spies’s Law.” I hope to resume them soon. These MOOCs have been offered by invitation to former students; all materials have been provided, and there has been no fee. Previous MOOCs have included:
Agile: Much More Than Marketing
Speed: The Misplaced Virtue
Blockchain, Bitcoin, and the Future of Trust
The No-Nonsense Job Hunt
Cyber War

 

  What I’m Up To...

I continue to pound away on my current research, the Memory Project.
I am preparing for an upcoming musical performance. Practice, practice, practice.
Heart-felt “thank-yous” to my lawyer and friend Albert, to my comrade-in-arms, Bob-Bob, and to the Precision Guided Thinkers.

 

  Random Access

I read these books last month:
A Season in the Sun;
Chindia;
If Aristotle Ran General Motors — yuck!;
The Most Human Human;
Smarter Faster Better;
Gilead;
Mark Twain’s Tale of Today; and,
The Enthusiasms of Robertson Davies.
There was a fascinating story in The New York Times recently, noting “the Department of Justice announced that Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Partners Healthcare, a health care system founded by the Brigham and another Harvard-affiliated hospital, would pay $10 million to settle allegations” that three of their doctors had faked a ton of research. It’s worth reading at: “He Promised to Restore Damaged Hearts. Harvard Says His Lab Fabricated Research.”
Speaking of research — the honest kind, that is — I continue to pound away on my current memory project.
Dialog. Respect. Integrity. Honesty. Solve problems. Excellence. How I wish I could have coffee with Garry Brewer and Martin Shubik, just once.

 Cool Stuff in Wayne’s World...

 Innovation Project

Mission: Integrate innovation into the curriculum. I have been teaching individual creativity and corporate innovation since 2005. Everyone wants it; no one wants to work for it. I can change that.

 Distance Learning Project

Mission: Make distance learning as good as — or better than — one-on-one tutoring, by any pedagogical standard. Am I there yet? No — but I can reliably beat every platform on the market. Want to see how?

 Emerging Business Paradigm

Mission: Re-think business and business education. All you know about business is wrong. All you know about business is right. This apparent paradox drives the Emerging Business Paradigm. Want to know more?

 The Music Project

Mission: Getting this to the stage was going to be easy. Not so much. Whenever I think I’ve made progress, I hear the Precision Guided Thinkers jeering, and it’s da capo al fine.

 Change the World

Mission: Make a real difference. Change the world. A little ambitious? Yes. Impossible? Probably. Completely nuts? I won’t disagree. But if we don’t try, who will?

 The Writing Project

Mission: Thank-you, Donald Kaul, who taught me when to write; Richard Freed, who taught me how to write; Anne Lamott, who taught me why to write, and Tom Wolfe, who taught me not to write.
