My celebrity status must be growing because I was invited to attend tha UPSA meeting (http://www.upsa.co.za/) as an ambassador for APMP (http://www.apmp.org.za/). Here I am with keynote speaker Alan Versteeg from Huthwaite Africa, and UPSA chairperson Tony Cross.
Alan shared some brilliant video snippets that made it clear to me that the world is changing in complexity and velocity. One of the gems I took away from his session was R = SNA, which stands for the Results you achieve depending on the Skills you have, the Number of times you use these skills and how you Allocate your efforts. His analogy was that if you want to lose weight, all you need to do is to eat less of the wrong things, eat more of the right things, and exercise. I guess he was hinting that I should eat fewer newts.
