Analytical Paralysis: Step III


At the end of the first day of work with the whiteboards, we went home, thinking about possible options for interface design. The next day we erased the drawing created the day before (after photographing each element in detail) *, and then sketched out ideas on how the spreadsheet might look, based on the team’s collective opinion on where the technology could be in a few years.
I can’t show the final design, but I’ll share with you one sketch that we ultimately didn’t choose **. Looking at it, you can see the simultaneous presentation of various types of data, several types of pairwise data visualization, as well as many tools for selecting and working with indicators.
* To document the results of the work in this process is very important - and we will talk about this after lunch.

Analytical Paralysis: Step III

  1. Analytical Paralysis: Step II
    Upon returning to the room, we headed back to the whiteboards with the following question: If there was only one step in the process that we could change with the improved spreadsheet, then what could it be? After a heated discussion, we agreed that if we could give the presidents a more flexible way of selecting and presenting data during the meeting with CF0, this would provide
  2. Analytical Paralysis: Step I
    Just as in the case of the first napkin and the first day of work, we started with a circle and gave it a name. And, as in the case of the second napkin (on the second day), we created a circle called “who”. Since each employee ultimately responds to the CFO (CF0), analysts considered him the most important “who”, so we called our first round “CF0”. Then we drew
  3. SIAM III (Southwest German Interventional study in Acute Myocardial infarction III, n = 197)
    Objective: to compare the clinical and angiographic (according to the infarct-conditioned artery) efficacy of early (performed within the first few hours after thrombolytic therapy) and delayed (performed within 2 weeks after thrombolytic therapy) stenting. Study: multicenter randomized. Patient population: patients with acute MI in the first 12 hours from the onset.
  4. Stage 2. Analytical
    This stage of work is aimed at improving the ability to analyze and relate the existing theoretical knowledge among themselves. At this stage, the lesson can be held in the form of work in microgroups or pairs with the preparation of reports or in the form of joint discussion. Students are given the following topics for analysis based on existing knowledge: • specificity of the consequences of various types of domestic violence: general and
  5. ANALYTICAL REVIEW OF DISSERTATIONS ON THE PROBLEMS OF MILITARY PSYCHOLOGY
    One of the main characteristics of any system of scientific knowledge is the analysis of the process of its evolution. In this regard, a reflection of the characteristics of the development of military psychological research is the most important part of the reflection of military psychology and, as a result, an attempt to assess the direction, structure and dynamics of growth obtained in this field of knowledge. Marked significance of this kind
  6. Analytical review of key ways to protect the rights of patients
    From the point of view of a comprehensive study of the legal regulation of the medical field, focusing on the need for a qualitative substantiation of the patient’s legal status, it seems necessary, along with an analysis of patients' rights, to dwell on the main ways of protecting these rights. The current state of ensuring the observance of patients' rights, legal guarantees of their implementation, to
  7. Analytical activity of the commander on the analysis and evaluation of the moral and psychological states of servicemen
    The starting point of the commander's activities in strengthening the moral and psychological state, increasing his maturity and stability in the subunit, part is his diagnosis. At the same time, it is important to evaluate and know the two main characteristics of the moral and psychological state: the degree of its maturity and generality, unity among the servicemen of the evaluated unit, part. Depending on the
  8. Squash step by step
    All parts of your breast pump may scare at first, but learning to use it is not difficult at all. Follow these basic guidelines to express milk for your baby. 1. Get ready. Assemble the parts of the breast pump. If you are using your pump for the first time, follow the instructions attached to it for washing and / or sterilization before use. Sit on a comfortable chair
  9. Step 3: find "where"
    At our disposal were interesting data that deserve to be studied. However, the fact that any of the players prevails in a particular industry was not of particular interest. Much more we wanted to see where business lines intersect, where companies act alone, and where the “brand equity” is in the structure of their revenues. And for this we needed to draw them all.
  10. Step 5: find “how”
    So, we realized where Thomson should be (in the upper open quadrant) and when (in two years). Accordingly, we still had the only question for discussion: How can Thomson raise his pyramid? Looking at the chart, we saw a clear way. Let me show this graph in the form in which we showed it to Dick Harrington (the then director of Thomson), since his
  11. The third step: an invasive strategy
    Cardiac catheterization is recommended as a means of preventing the complications of the disease and assessing a delayed prognosis. The need and urgency of an invasive strategy is established after determining the risk and assigning patients to one of 3 groups: conservative, early invasive or urgent invasive. CONSERVATIVE STRATEGY Patients who fully meet the following criteria
  12. Step I: find “who and what”
    Having received a huge mountain of data, we first of all sift it in search of information about the players, namely the competitors mentioned. During the study, the names of seven companies constantly surfaced. We've already heard about the three - it is Bloomberg, Reuters and McGraw-Hill. And four to this time unknown for us were Reed Elsevier, Pearson, Wolters Kluwer and the last, but no less important - Thomson. Knowledge of
  13. Step 2: Answer the question “how much”
    After we identified the players and understood what they were doing, they returned to the documents to find quantitative data about each - something that allows changing “how much”. After examining the masses of data, we decided that the first question “how much” that we intend to study will be related to the size of each company in terms of the value of annual income. Here are the results of seven companies with
  14. First step: assessment on admission
    In most patients, only chest discomfort (chest pain) can be identified, the suspicion of acute coronary syndrome is a preliminary diagnosis. The initial examination includes ¦ Detailed survey and accurate description of symptoms. Physical examination is necessary taking into account the possible presence of valvular heart disease (aortic stenosis), hcmp, heart failure and lung disease.
  15. The fourth step: the definition of methods of revascularization
    If there is no critical damage to the coronary vessels in the angiograms, the patient is prescribed medication, while the diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome is specified. Of course, the absence of angiographic signs of damage to the coronary vessels cannot serve as a pretext for making a diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome in the presence of ischemia symptoms, confirmed by biomarkers. In these
  16. Step 1. Preparation of consciousness: entry into the program
    Functional medicine is a medicine of wide views, drawing knowledge from ancient sources, and using the most advanced technologies if necessary. Each time, intending to improve any aspect of your life, you first draw up a plan of action and prepare for their implementation. My program is no exception to this rule. Although it is quite simple to follow it, after
  17. Step 2. Preparing life: daily routine
    In some respects, it is more convenient to carry out my detox program at home than at a wellness center, but this is fraught with certain difficulties. It is difficult to give up perennial habits, but the hardest thing to change the diet. When you have to make such sacrifices, we become sullen and irritable. Although the program solves health problems at a biochemical level, it needs reliable
  18. Step 3. Preparation of the body: exclusion of irritants
    Before you begin to detoxify and restore the body, it is necessary to do some preparatory work. A few days of the elimination diet before starting the program, your body will get rid of products and chemicals that may cause allergic reactions or hypersensitivity, and release energy for detoxification. Reducing exposure to toxins
  19. One step from false opposition to absurdity
    There is nothing more useless than universal rules. Thomas Macaulay In this chapter ... • It is better to eat, than not to sleep, or a false opposition • It is easy to quit smoking, or a false gain • Talking tomato, or absurdity • Cheshire cat and wit
  20. Step 4: find the answer to “when”
    The scheme we created showed only one point in time - 2001, the year of the survey. We had a kind of snapshot that said: “This is how the industry of professional information providers looks like today.” But remember that the main purpose of this exercise was to prepare Thomson for the withdrawal of shares on the New York Stock Exchange in 2003, that is, through
