Game theory says Pete Carroll’s call at goal line Is defensible

Tue, Feb 3, 2015|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , |Comments Off on Game theory says Pete Carroll’s call at goal line Is defensible

From NY Times: It’s the biggest moment in your N.F.L. coaching career: 26 seconds remain in the Super Bowl, your team is 4 points behind, you have the ball just one yard short of the end zone, it’s second down, and your team has arguably the N.F.L.’s best running back. What’s your call? Run or pass?

Here’s what I would do: Call a game theorist, someone who specializes in the branch of economics that analyzes strategic interactions. Game theory is the tool used to understand how global superpowers respond to each other, how large companies compete with each other and how grandmasters play chess. It also describes the strategic tussle between Bill Belichick, the coach of the New England Patriots, and Pete Carroll, the coach of the Seattle Seahawks, who found themselves facing difficult decisions in the final seconds of Sunday’s Super Bowl. · Go to Game theory says Pete Carroll’s call at goal line Is defensible →

A feast of management ideas for the new year

Tue, Dec 23, 2014|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , |Comments Off on A feast of management ideas for the new year

From strategy+business: It wouldn’t be December without a “best of” list frenzy. From the best albums to the best apps to the best ads, the end of each year draws us to revisit the things (and people) that struck a chord. The sheer number of these lists but can be a bit overwhelming, but they make sense. Given what is thrown at us every minute of every day, we undoubtedly miss all too much of the good stuff. The highlight reel lets us experience some (short-term) nostalgia, yes, but it’s also an opportunity to play catch up—and maybe even get a head start on the new year. · Go to A feast of management ideas for the new year →

From Marty Neumeier at Liquid Agency: In a survey by Liquid Agency (formerly Neutron) and Stanford University, 1500 business leaders were asked to rank their top ten biggest problems. Their number-one problem? “Balancing long-term goals with short-term demands.” In large corporations, the phrase “short-term demands” is code for “shareholder demands.” · Go to Organic drivetrain →
