Slide 1: 

Recent breakthroughs in neuroscience demonstrate that the human mind is an amazing organ – well designed to handle the competitive world that knowledge workers face; it only needs to be tuned. This is the first attempt to gather and organize relevant research and apply that understanding to making knowledge workers substantially more productive. This topic is critical because the competitive advantage of individuals, companies and nations will be gained from knowledge worker productivity. Cisco Systems, a market share leader in each of their segments, attributes this lead to an investment in knowledge worker capital which provides a 300% revenue per employee advantage over their direct competitors. While athletes train lifting 300 pound weights, knowledge workers will train on grapes, liar’s dice tournaments and dancing lessons. Getting the advantage is amazingly easy. This is the story of how that can be. This presentation provides a robust outline for a course syllabus. The discussion is generalized but integrates a prescription for improving the most important thing knowledge workers do; make good decisions. Implementing decisions is a simple derivative. It is easy to get started; it is even easier to do. Everybody does better and everybody wins. 10/1/20 copyright 2010 Dave Bonini 1
