How to Identify Talent: Five Lessons from the NFL Draft - Behavioral Scientist
I once worked for an NFL team that was much more successful drafting players one side of the ball than the other. One year we surveyed the staff about the kind of player they wanted to acquire at a particular position. The position was on the side they struggled with, and we discovered there was zero consensus on the type of player to pursue. Given the range of opinions, the group average was meaningless. No wonder they had trouble drafting the right guys!


A good hiring process explicitly pushes against these compromising factors: Don’t let people talk to each other or see other’s opinions before providing their own, expose the candidate to judges in different ways and at different points in time, and bring people with different perspectives into the process. More independence is often the biggest improvement an organization can easily make in their hiring process.

Research: Learning a Little About Something Makes Us Overconfident
Our work, however, suggests the opposite. Absolute beginners can be perfectly conscious and cautious about what they don’t know; the unconscious incompetence is instead something they grow into. A little experience replaces their caution with a false sense of competence.

In our studies, just a little learning was enough to make participants feel they had learned the task. After a few tries, they were as confident in their judgments as they were ever going to be throughout the entire experiment. They had, as we termed it, entered into a “beginner’s bubble” of overconfidence.

With that said, our studies suggest that the work of a beginner might be doubly hard. Of course, the beginner must struggle to learn — but the beginner must also guard against an illusion they have learned too quickly.

How I got here: Pentagram partner Marina Willer - Creative Review
When I was leading the creative at WO London, I used to say my team was a fruit salad, with as much diversity of cultures and ideas as possible. I now carry on the same mission at Pentagram.


When I was starting, all we wanted was to change the world. That mission stays with you for the rest of the journey. And to make real change, you need to be part of a team.

Remove the legend to become one — Remains of the Day
Nowadays, companies hang flat screen TVs hanging on the walls, all them running 24/7 to display a variety of charts. Most everyone ignores them. The spirit is right, to be transparent all the time, but the understanding of human nature is not. We ignore things that are shown to us all the time. However, if once a month, a huge packet of charts dropped on your desk, with a cover letter summarizing the results, and if the CEO and your peers received the same package the same day, and that piece of work included charts on how your part of the business was running, you damn well paid attention, like any person turning to the index of a book on their company to see if they were mentioned. Ritual matters.
While I tried to create guardrails to preserve formulas linking all the workbooks, everything from locked cells to bold and colorful formatting to indicate editable cells, no spreadsheet survives engagement with a casual user.

What did Weinstein's board know, and when did they know it? — Quartz at Work
After the implosion of Enron, WorldCom, and Tyco in 2001, US regulators smelled a systemic sort of rot in the preparation of corporate financials. One response of the US Congress was to require the CEOs and CFOs of public companies to start personally certifying financial statements. What if CEOs and board members were similarly required—or even just volunteered—to certify annually that to their knowledge, no one in senior management had engaged in sexual harassment and that any harassment complaints brought to the company had been dealt with appropriately?
