This week on Car Talk, after missing for two months, Jane's cat showed up at a house seven miles away, and across two major highways. Did Catzilla stow away during Jane's daily commute? Elsewhere, Sharon's Explorer is growling, and Gunther thinks a toilet is flushing under his Astrovan's dashboard. Also, Lori in Arizona threatens to make Male Answer Syndrome obsolete, with two words: "Google it!"; and, more than you ever wanted to know about Senior Prom planning in Yosemite National Park. All this, plus a new Puzzler from the Dates and Nuts series, and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: March 24, 2012] 1. Language: English.

In today's fast-moving Information Age, traditional business-planning tools are rapidly becoming obsolete. Yet the competitive, ever-changing marketplace demands that executives move quickly or risk becoming relics.In Three Moves Ahead, business leader and chess expert Bob Rice offers an entertaining, practical response to this modern dilemma. He shows how the world's top executives use chess tactics to thrive in the face of incalculable complexities and unexpected change.Written for nonplayers, this witty, smart guide is filled with real-world examples of how to win the game of business by applying chess strategies honed from over 1,000 years of competition. With incisive prose, Rice clearly shows how to use these principles to attack competitors, defend turf, and crack new markets. He demonstrates how a "Strong Square" strategy drove Adobe's rise from niche player to industry powerhouse, how Kodak is reviving its fortunes with an "Exchange Sacrifice", and how Google is creating holes in Microsoft's position with a "Minority Attack".Most importantly, Three Moves Ahead also shows how to "Stay Ahead On the Clock" and avoid the fate of companies like Polaroid, Gateway, and our dearly departed Ma Bell. 1.

Is philosophy obsolete? Are the ancient questions still relevant in the age of cosmology and neuroscience, not to mention crowd-sourcing and cable news? The acclaimed philosopher and novelist Rebecca Newberger Goldstein provides a dazzlingly original plunge into the drama of philosophy, revealing its hidden role in today’s debates on religion, morality, politics, and science. At the origin of Western philosophy stands Plato, who got about as much wrong as one would expect from a thinker who lived 2,400 years ago. But Plato’s role in shaping philosophy was pivotal. On her way to considering the place of philosophy in our ongoing intellectual life, Goldstein tells a new story of its origin, re-envisioning the extraordinary culture that produced the man who produced philosophy. But it is primarily the fate of philosophy that concerns her. Is the discipline no more than a way of biding our time until the scientists arrive on the scene? Have they already arrived? Does philosophy itself ever make progress? And if it does, why is so ancient a figure as Plato of any continuing relevance? Plato at the Googleplex is Goldstein’s startling investigation of these conundra. She interweaves her narrative with Plato’s own choice for bringing ideas to life - the dialogue.Imagine that Plato came to life in the twenty-first century and embarked on a multicity speaking tour. How would he handle the host of a cable news program who denies there can be morality without religion? How would he mediate a debate between a Freudian psychoanalyst and a tiger mom on how to raise the perfect child? How would he answer a neuroscientist who, about to scan Plato’s brain, argues that science has definitively answered the questions of free will and moral agency? What would Plato make of Google, and of the idea that knowledge can be crowd-sourced rather than reasoned out by experts? With a philosopher’s depth and a novelist’s imagination and wit, Goldstein probes the deepest 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dennis Holland.

THE RISE OF THE HUMAN-CENTRIC ENTERPRISEArtificial intelligence, robotics, big data, disruptive developments based on digital businessmodels bring companies to the edge of singularity, understood as the point of departurewhere a system changes into something entirely new.Following big questions in business and society derived from singularity:• How do we lead more humanly in business when Artificial Intelligence decides faster and more precisely than we do?• How do we create a framework for new forms of cooperation?• How can companies develop an ambidextrous culture to stabilize that worth preserving and at the same time initiates innovation?• In short, what do we have to do today to survive the digital revolution?The Singularity Leadership® model provides practical answers – because the human being can beat algorithmsREADER´S VOICES:"Jan Brecke is a well-respected authority of corporate cultures (from 'testosterone top-down' to 'silicon valley bottom-up') and a smart observant predestined to provide direction in digital transformation. Anyone looking for fresh, thoughtful, and purposeful solutions to shape modern leadership in today's digital world should read this book. "Dr. Kerim Galal, Senior Vice President (SVP) Corporate Strategy, Innovation & Digitalization, DEKRA SE “A great guide to leading the transformation of a business organization into the digital age. 'Singularity Leadership' comprehensively and understandably covers all relevant aspects of this process while keeping a focus on being a human being. Perhaps the best and most readable book I have read on leadership and corporate culture right now and that I can definitely recommend.”Klaus-Peter Fett, Chief Information and Digital Officer and Member of the Managing Board, Roechling SE & Co. KG (at the printing of this book: Industry Lead Manufacturing Google Cloud, Google LLC)"At first you might think: Another book in the flood of leadership literature that tells me how to do it and how to make it even better. But far from it: I have read a valuable book, which describes clearly and legibly the challenges for successful corporate management in the course of digitization. The book is written pragmatically and understandable. Remarkably is the explicit recommendation to depart from technocratic and obsolete old school management of the ' Deutschland AG' type.Jan Brecke is not satisfied with the description of the challenges but provides an excellent guide to the reader, a cookbook with the essential ingredients and recipes for successful corporate management, which will continue to be successful in the future."Prof. Dr. Christian Knop, Medical Director Traumatology and Orthopedics, Klinikum Stuttgart"Jan Brecke knows the challenges companies have to face and names pragmatic solutions. As companies do not change their operating models completely in all units at the same pace, a mix of more traditional approaches and start-up processes like ambidexterity is suggested by the author. I would definitely recommend this book to all my managers."Rolf Zeidler, Global Head of Analytics and Insight Services, multinational software corporation"Jan Brecke´s book "Singularity Leadership" is based on the thesis that the digital transformation is not a technical problem but a cultural one. Thus, every organization and leader has the opportunity to face these new realities, like digital change, Generation Z, and increasingly more complex and volatile decision-making environments.The book offers ten principles of action that provide pragmatic assistance in developing a sustainable corporate culture. In doing so, Jan Brecke anchors the idea that a successful company should be built on authentic company values in the future and to guide the meaningful and goal-oriented actions of its employees.An exciting book that keeps inspiring people to think about their challenges and management tools and that gives them a lot of concrete suggestions for trying out new things to survive the digital transformation!

A / B Testing

How Your Business Can Use the Science That Helped Win the White House The average conversion rate--the rate at which visitors convert into customers--across the web is only 2%. That means it's likely that 98% of visitors to your website won't end up converting into customers. What's the solution? A/B testing. A/B testing is the simple idea of showing several different versions of a web page to live traffic, and then measuring the effect each version has on visitors. Using A/B testing, companies can improve the effectiveness of their marketing and user experience and, in doing so, can sometimes double or triple their conversion rates. Testing has been fundamental in driving the success of Google, Amazon, Netflix, and other top tech companies. Even Barack Obama and Mitt Romney had dedicated teams A/B testing their campaign websites during the 2012 Presidential race. In the past, marketing teams were unable to unleash the power of A/B testing because it required costly engineering and IT resources. Today, a new generation of technology that enables marketers to run A/B tests without depending on engineers is emerging and quickly becoming one of the most powerful tools for making data-driven decisions. Authors Dan Siroker and Pete Koomen are cofounders of Optimizely, the leading A/B testing platform used by more than 5,000 organizations across the world. A/B Testing: The Most Powerful Way to Turn Clicks Into Customers offers best practices and lessons learned from more than 300,000 experiments run by Optimizely customers. You'll learn: What to test How to choose the testing solution that's right for your organization How to assemble an A/B testing dream team How to create personalized experiences for every visitor And much more Marketers and web professionals will become obsolete if they don't embrace a data-driven approach to decision making. This book shows you how, no matter your technical expertise.
