Strategic decisions and weak signals : anticipation for by Humbert Lesca

By Humbert Lesca

An expanding variety of enterprise executives, managers and political leaders are utilizing the concept that of “weak indications” these days. There also are progressively more humans searching for out precisely what this idea potential, in addition to whilst and the way to exploit it. Such questions come up quite whilst it comes all the way down to making strategic decisions.  to aid with those questions, this booklet defines the concept that of the “weak sign” after which demonstrates the way it will be precious relating to strategic judgements, and extra accurately relating to 3 moments of the strategic determination, i.e.:

- The set off of the strategic choice (what is the set off, why and when)
- the advance of the strategic decision
- The implementation of the strategic decision

Survivability and Traffic Grooming in WDM Optical Networks

The appearance of fiber optic transmission structures and wavelength department multiplexing has ended in a dramatic elevate within the usable bandwidth of unmarried fiber platforms. This e-book presents exact assurance of survivability (dealing with the danger of wasting huge volumes of site visitors info as a result of a failure of a node or a unmarried fiber span) and site visitors grooming (managing the elevated complexity of smaller person requests over excessive skill information pipes), either one of that are key concerns in smooth optical networks.

Principles of Semiconductor Network Testing (Test & Measurement)

This booklet gathers jointly complete info which try out and approach execs will locate beneficial. The options defined can help make sure that try tools and knowledge accumulated mirror genuine equipment functionality, instead of 'testing the tester' or being misplaced within the noise ground. This publication addresses the basic matters underlying the semiconductor try self-discipline.

Sample text

We need to find snippets of information about subjects which we don’t know whether or not will be of interest, to work in that nebulous, fuzzy environment… to detect potential possibilities. ” Of the various concepts put forward in previous literature on the subject, two appear to be particularly relevant in terms of the issue of weak signals: “Peripheral vision” and “Blindspot”: – if the weak signal is hidden in a “blindspot”, then it is impossible to detect it; – if it is not possible to compare the weak signal against other pieces of information that could confirm it, add to it or else contradict it, then the weak signal probably loses a lot of its usefulness.

Some authors also speak of “early signs” or “early signals”, “weak signs”, “early warning signs” and “early warning signals”. The dilemma caused by the variation in terminology used for very similar concepts led Kuusi and Hiltunen [KUU 11] to propose the concept of a “future-oriented signification”, based on the signification process, which is analyzed from the perspective of three aspects: “signal, interpretation and issue” [KUU 11, p. 47] In this book, we will use the expression “weak signal”.

In other words, the question of interpretation of the briefs (possible weak signals) does not even arise unless that input has previously been obtained. The question is whether computer systems are available to carry out these operations 48 Strategic Decisions and Weak Signals in the context of information overload. Thus, let us begin with the operation “Interpretation of possible weak signals/collective sense-making”: what does this operation require? 1. 1 shows the name of the authors in the position in the process of anticipative strategic scanning corresponding to their contribution.
