Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Over the course of hundreds of conversations and interviews with leadership development professionals, three pain points have come up repeatedly: “I don’t have buy-in from all of senior leadership.” “I don’t have enough budget.” “I don’t have a seat at the table.” A razor-sharp strategic plan can help you combat each of these problems. And even if you don’t have these problems, a strategic plan offers a lot. It can help you stay focused on what matters, communicate your strategy more clearly to your team and stakeholders, and achieve your goals. For this article, Matthew Painter Ph.D. , the Director of Leadership Development at UAB Medicine (the University of Alabama at Birmingham), shared his process for putting together a strategic plan. He broke down his entire framework and shared insights on how to apply it. How Painter Built His Model Painter didn’t come into UAB Medicine with an existing … [Read more...] about How UAB Medicine Built A Strategic Plan For Leadership Development

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Dr. John C.C. Fan, Founder and Chairman of Kopin Corporation . Much of the world is stumped on the idea of the “metaverse dream,” where our real world would merge seamlessly with a virtual 3-D world. This would be an entirely new type of wireless wearable platform—a quantum jump from our current handheld or desktop 2-D computing world. Such a metaverse platform could generate profound new experiences and applications—as well as trillions of dollars in revenue. But before we can attain that dream, there are still questions we've yet to answer: What happened to the metaverse? Are we actually headed in the right direction? Is the metaverse hype over-exaggerated? With all these unanswered questions, the one thing that nobody is talking about is how the idea of the metaverse has been around for years. In fact, it can be argued it started 30 years ago, and this idea of the physical and digital worlds colliding is … [Read more...] about What Happened To The Metaverse Dream?

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin There’s another meeting of the Federal Reserve’s Federal Open Market Committee coming up in the middle of December—the time after which a press release will announce the next interest rate hike. Not if there is one, because there almost certainly will be, but how large. Press coverage will, as always, be heavy, and the more immediate focus is on a speech Fed chair Jerome Powell will give at the Brookings Institution on Wednesday. “The event provides Powell with a stage to echo fellow Fed officials in signaling they will raise their benchmark rate by 50 basis points at their final meeting of the year, after four successive 75 basis-point hikes,” notes Bloomberg . ADVERTISEMENT Only there’s no reason to think that even Powell will have the last word, as these actions require a vote, and indications have been all over the road. Top Fed officials have been making public statements, each making the public case for … [Read more...] about What’s The Fed Going To Do? Nobody Knows—Not Even Them

- A + A KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 29): Malakoff Corp Bhd’s net profit for the third quarter ended Sept 30, 2022 (3QFY2022) jumped 53.44% to RM66.54 million from RM43.37 million in the same quarter last year, boosted by higher contribution from Tanjung Bin Power Sdn Bhd (TBP) on the back of higher applicable coal price (ACP). Revenue climbed to RM3.18 billion from RM1.58 billion in 3QFY2021, its Bursa Malaysia filing showed, with the higher ACP increasing the contributions from both TBP as well as Tanjung Bin Energy Sdn Bhd (TBE). It recorded a tax expense of RM155.97 million, as opposed to RM45.85 million previously. Earnings per share for the reporting quarter expanded to 1.36 sen from 0.89 sen. No dividend was declared. In a statement, Malakoff said the significant increase in its net earnings was partly offset by lower contribution from TBE as a result of a reduction in capacity income. "In addition, higher operating insurance and impairment loss on the carrying value … [Read more...] about Malakoff’s 3Q profit jumps 53% on higher energy payments from power plants
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin My first impression of the notion of Broadcom acquiring VMWare was negative. I was most familiar with Broadcom’s acquisitions in the semiconductor space. The company had, and still has, a shrewd reputation for transforming its semi acquisitions and turning them into money-printing machines. Semi transformations require taking significant actions on product roadmaps and resources like laying off people. I’ll add that even in Broadcom’s software history, many questioned certain of the actions related to CA and Symantec transformations. So, it would be natural for people to question this acquisition. I have read the many scribes from Broadcom CEO Hock Tan circumnavigating the globe talking to the VMware ecosystem, but after personally talking with Tan and chatting with a few VMware partners and customers, I am wondering, is it time we start giving the acquisition a chance? With most acquisitions, neither the … [Read more...] about Is It Time To Start Giving Broadcom’s Pending Acquisition Of VMware A Chance?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin The pushback from Canada I wrote about on Tuesday has apparently fallen on deaf ears for the incoming new administration, and President Joe Biden will likely move to cancel the cross-border permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline System . That move could effectively kill the project to complete the northern leg of the system which would facilitate the import of large volumes of heavy Canadian crude every day for refining in the United States. The question that too few, if any, in the news media will ask the new President is, why? Why would a President who likes to portray himself as a champion of the environment move to cancel a pipeline that has pledged to turn itself into America’s first all-renewable energy interstate/international pipeline system? Other than a simple raw exercise in political power designed to impress one of the Democratic Party’s most loyal and powerful interest groups, the move makes little sense. It … [Read more...] about Keystone XL Update: President Biden Plans To Axe America’s First All-Renewable Energy Pipeline
