186: Peter Boumgarden—How To Build Awesome Teams In Today's Changing Times

Posted by Andrea Simon on Mar 23, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Hear innovative teambuilding strategies to get work done!

Peter and I know each other from our experiences working with a Michigan client and The Simon Initiative for Entrepreneurship at Washington University in St. Louis. Peter is a Professor of Practice of Strategy and Organizations at WashU's Olin Business School, and also the Faculty Director for the Center for Experiential Learning at Olin, a university center that runs for-profit and non-profit student-led strategic consulting engagement, both globally and around the St. Louis region. We were excited to talk on our podcast about data analytics for workers. If we can use data to select the best athletes, what can we learn about workers with the right data? Enjoy.

158: Peggy Smedley—What Lies Ahead For The Construction Industry?

Posted by Andrea Simon on Oct 28, 2019 6:00:00 AM

Hear how blockchain, IoT and big data are transforming our world!

This spring, I was a guest on Peggy Smedley’s ConstructechTV, a highly influential TV show about technology, blockchain and the construction industry. It was such an enjoyable interview that I asked Peggy to share her ideas about technology and construction with our On The Brink listeners. In this podcast, we talk about the challenges she sees in an industry that is well-established, resistant to change, heavily dependent on human labor, and not able to see “what is all around them.” Not hard to see why we connected. Lots to learn here; be sure to listen in.

142: Ken Hoyt—Harnessing The Extraordinary Power of Data

Posted by Andrea Simon on Jul 15, 2019 6:00:00 AM

Ken Hoyt explains how data can transform your organization!

A little over two years ago, in June 2017, Dr. Kenneth Hoyt did a podcast with us about his work with higher education institutions that needed, or wanted, to change. We had previously worked with Ken when he was president of Centenary University from 2002 to 2009 when he turned around the institution, dramatically increasing enrollment from 1,600 students to 3,300. How did he do this? By better understanding and improving retention rates and expanding into non-traditional, adult, online and graduate programs. It was Ken's mastery of the power of data that enabled him to provide the insights needed to better recruit potential college students while adapting Centenary's curricula to their needs. Are you in need of a turnaround? Listen and learn!
