How can we make accurate, high-quality decisions, quickly, under high pressure with incomplete or ambiguous information? In order to help answer this question my co-author (Behavioural Strategist Warren Kennaugh) and I have interviewed more than 50 match officials from across a number of sports including AFL, Australian Cricket, Rugby Union, Rugby League and A-League soccer to find out how they make consistently accurate decisions quickly on the run in stressful situations with incomplete information.

Changing Gears: The Strategic Implementation of Technology

Changing Gears: The Strategic Implementation of Technology

Many change management programmes designed to implement new technology are unsuccessful. The author draws upon a number of perspectives in change management and organisational strategy to show that failure is often not to do with technical factors but because of resistance of the workforce. He presents a new approach to implementing technology based upon the persuasion and commitment of the main stakeholders. Carlopio argues that senior managers should take organisational sensitivities and characteristics into account and build a communication and training and development strategy that will support the implementation of change. In this way, members of an organisation will be encouraged to embrace the new technology and it will become a part of their corporate mindset. More info →
