Even though it's not real-world experience, I think that the simulation is a brilliant idea that allows students to apply the concepts in a more concrete way. We used Markstrat simulations in some of my marketing courses, and they were one of the best parts of the class and really helped to reinforce the concepts while working in a "competitive" environment.

A great post, especially if you feel unchallenged in your job.

While I'm not so sure about using the tablet (it seems like it would be awkward to perform the surgery), this is very cool. Allowing surgeons to better visualize and see things that they can't with their eyes should help to improve long-term outcomes.

Often the traits that land the job are the ones that lead to failure. Taking a broader view of talent and the traits that promote long-term success would likely lead to better organizational performance.

From a management perspective, a very interesting read. The leaders of these organizations have some serious challenges to overcome.

Very cool! While there's still a lot of work to allow this to the point where it can be used in humans, it gives a promising path forward.

FTA: "The CEB research indicates that one of the key problems is that qualified, diverse candidates are not getting due consideration for leadership roles, owing to unconscious (and sometimes conscious) bias in hiring and promotion decisions."

We've probably all seen examples where some people are more qualified for a position but don't get it because of some biases against them. But with increasing competition and the threat of not having qualified people able to take over when people retire, it's critical to start looking at ways to ensure that the right people are selected and groomed. Adding some more objective measures could certainly help.
