Cottingham.tv’s Editor has been lobbying for such multi-disciplinary changes to bring psychology and other disciplines into economics, goverment and social working practises proposing such multi-disciplinary approaches across IT including “big data” as an afilliate member of the IEEE SSIT group for over a decade now

-having faced brick walls in local and regional academia, business and finance, it’s good to have some vindication!

Why does the market obsess about general industrial social and economic trends and processes as a herd, yet ignore individuals and their unique roles in building successful trail-blazing enterprises and initiatives?

The exceptions always seem to disprove the rules or dictats laid down by academia and business practice that may be blinkering graduates

for every conglomerate there is a Steve Jobs or a Mark Zuckerberg who breaks the established mould!

Perhaps what is interesting to note is that business practices evolve over time and that they are fluid and not set in stone.
