- The music in the background created some audience whispers early in the presentation... it is odd to have background violins under a technical presentation. Little did we realize that it was intentional...
It is easy to miss a moonwalking bear... Focusing on the obvious leads to missing critical factors that contribute to the evolution on a catastrophic event.
Black swans theory - a metaphor for changing a mindset... a single observation, a new discovery, a major rare event that forces the need to rethink the "known realities"
High consequence events are the risks that do not receive the level of attention needed to prevent.
Normal statistical analysis, bell curves and Newtonian physics may not be the appropriate tools to analyze complex risks.
Randomness organizes... then catastrophic events happen.
Dr. Larrañaga loves IH... and his t-shirt proved it...
- Monday's keynote was the most valuable to me because it brought into focus some principals that are critical for preventing high consequence events. I will use these principals in my consulting practice.
- I will be applying the principals that I learned in Monday's keynote address. Fantastic!
