Transcript: John vs. Jennifer Artificial Intelligence Identical CVs belonging to either John or Jennifer were evaluated by academic scientists for the role of lab manager. Jennifer was perceived as less competent, and was less likely to be offered the job. Jennifer’s salary offer was 13% less than John's. And female scientists shared the same bias that male scientists did. PNAS, July 2012 Following the introduction of first round blind auditions in the 1970’s, women were 50% more likely to progress to final auditions for orchestra positions. The NY Philharmonic had no women members then; now they have 44 out of 100. National Bureau of Economic Research, 1997 Researchers were surprised to find that in the heavily male dominated tech industry, code written by women was more likely to be approved by their peers than code written by men. But only if their peers didn’t realise that the coder was a woman. PeerJ, July 2016 (MIT Tech Review) Bias in CV Reviews Bias in assessment of female coders In software used by the police and judges, AI that predicts the risk of recidivism in criminals is twice as likely to incorrectly show black defendants as a higher risk for future crimes. Women are less likely to see ads for high paying jobs on Google than men. AI mirrors our own familiar biases and stereotypes.

Transcript: Chapter 1 Harvard Business Review The Transition to Leadership Shifting focus toward helping others acheive their best, rather than individual contributions Difference between Positional Authority & Personal Influence Management vs Leadership Mental & Emotional Challenges of Transition to Leadership The Transition to Leadership Core Messages The role as managers is to set direction for your team and coordinate resources to meet your organizations goals As individual contributors we are able to very clearly define our contributions to the team As Managers we must find ways help others have success It can be difficult to watch a less experienced person struggle Resist the urge to show how YOU used to do it Help others thrive and develop their own competancies As our management roles grow, and teams become broader, this is increasingly important. OUR personal skills/Doing the work can only scale so far to the point of greatly diminishing returns.

Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it." "On this team, we're all united in a common goal: to keep my job." Personal Influence vs Position... Personal Influence vs Positional Authority Managers have formal authority to make decisions, allocate resources, and direct employees Many new Managers may be frustrated when ideas and directives are not readily adopted "In actuality, people won't do something just because you tell them to, and they certainly won't do it well. Although you can use your positional authority to force compliance, your team members won't commit fully or deliver their best work under these conditions." Influence v Authority When you exercise influence, your people act because they find you personally persuasive You're not making them do something. They're choosing to do it because you are leading effectively. That willingness makes all the difference. Your real power as a manager lies not in your job descriptions, but in the relationships you are able to cultivate with your staff. Influence v Authority Management vs Leadership Management vs Leadership Management is about responding to complexity To get a job done, managers must focus on control & predictability Managers must organize processes that will produce orderly outcomes Leadership is about producing and responding to change Leaders see opportunities in the instabilities that their managerial alter-egos want to tame Leaders emphasize ideas over process Management vs Leadership The most successful managers leverage both management and leadership competencies selectively to benefit the organization. While your company may determine when you officially transition to management, opportunities for leadership can present themselves at any time in your career. We as leaders should continually inspire that message and strive to build within our culture Ties back to scale of individual management Management vs Leadership Master-of-Managment Nick Saban 127-20 Record at Alabama 6 National Titles total Leadership Mental & Emotional Challenges Transition to Leadership Transition to Leadership As Managers - particularly as new managers - we are likely to experience great swings in emotions Feelings of self-doubt Peformance anxiety No longer having the control of personal performance These feelings are perfectly normal Challenges Challenges Embrace the Emotions By recognizing that these are all normal emotions in the transition to leadership, we can embrace and overcome those emotions Label your emotions By actively ackowledging feelings you can moderate your response Find the Source & Solution Once we understand what we're feeling, consider where its coming from Embrace the Emotions Role Strain "Too much work and too little time" Imbrace imperfection, you can't meet every demand.

Transcript: SPOTLIGHT ON BREAK THROUGH INNOVATION PROJECT LEADER DEFINING A PROJECT Quantitative analysis should also be used in executive plans to help clarify the goals of project and Both the capabilities and technical solutions may need to be adjusted as the program proceeds. The original goal may be overtaken by the discovery of a different and better application. There are mainly two ways to identify a project: One is to recognize that a scientific field has emerged or reached an inflation point and that it can solve often in a new way the practical problem of importance. Ex. MEMS researched on electro mechanical systems in 1990 to which the DARPA also put in efforts thus creating breakthroughs in plasma physics, fluid dynamics and materials. Second is to uncover an emerging user need that existing technologies cannot address. Ex. DARPA’S ongoing hypersonic test vehicle programme. In product development, experience with comparable projects is a good guide for estimating the time and resources required to hit milestones like completion of design production of successful prototype and ramp up to full scale production. Planning of projects should be quick and light. It should be seen whether the projects are converging near goals or revealing any new technique etc. If a particular project fails then they have to choose new paths to reach goals and have to take high risks for it. At DARPA the performers who sign on to a project understand that their participation may not always finish achieving the goals and might end up in failure sometimes. The ‘Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’was formed in the year 1958 immediately after Russia launched its man made satellite in space. Its founding mission was simple, “TO PREVENT AND CREATE STRATEGIC SURPRISE”. This was the era when cold war was starting to rise and the USA needed modern technology. DARPA is an independent organization even though it is run by PENTAGON today, it contributes in creating new technologies for the companies outside defense sector. CONCLUSION DARPA collaborates with companies for research work as it does not have a laboratory of its own. The collaborations are generally with universities or big companies like Stanford, Google etc. In DARPA people who generally do not interact collaborate and interactions happen on various disciplinary lines. This produces fast breakthroughs and innovations. TRACKING PROGRESS THE INTERNET MICRO ELECTRIC MOTION SENSOR STEALTH BOMBERS UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLES IDENTIFYING PROJECTS CONTENTS CHANCHAL AGARWAL H 6 SUNIL JADHAVAR H 7 RUSIL SARKAR H 8 NITISH SHAH H 9 NIHARIKA KALSE H 10 An advanced project and technology group must work in a way that differ from the normal company. Sometimes the breakthrough innovations may lead a company to new businesses that may lead the company to major departures or even threaten existing business. The team should necessarily operate independently without anyone's intervention so that the breakthrough innovations take place and do not get hampered by an outside source. Project leaders who can successfully lead DARPA like agencies posses the skills of best CEO’s of science or engineering based startups. They should be risk takers and also motivators. At DARPA such people were found through agencies former and current employees and also through their network. Industry recruiting agencies may also be used because they generally have contacts to the best talents. The DARPA has works on three strategies: AMBITIOUS GOALS: The agency’s projects are designed to harness science and energy advances to solve sufficiently challengingly problems. TEMPORARY PROJECT TEAMS: DARPA brings together world class experts from industries to work on projects of relative short duration. INDEPENDENCE: DARPA has autonomy in selecting and running projects. The DARPA: An introduction Decoding DARPA IDENTIFYING PROJECTS DEFINING A PROJECT TRACKING PROGRESS TIME LIMITS AND TEMPORARY TEAMS THE CONTRACTORS PROJECT LEADER INDEPENDENCE CONCLUSION THE CONTRACTORS TIME LIMITS AND TEMPORARY TEAMS One of the most effective ways to attract talented performers from a wide array of discipline organizations and backgrounds and to keep them intensely focused is to set up a finite term for a project. It is also important to staff people working under contracts that last only as long as the jobs they perform contribute to the overall goal. The DARPA and ATAP have been recruiting people with caliber and knowledge to run projects. These people are recruited temporary because they create a sense if urgency to complete the project. DARPA model has cemented the gap between advance science and development of new products. DARPA has allowed to recruit the best scientific and engineering minds. DARPA has conducted its research in short time frames and flexible and agile organizations. Applying the DARPA model in organizations may help in increasing the breakthroughs and thus help in shaping a better future. INDEPENDENCE HARVARD
