Buried ideas singing loudly

  1. 1. Buried Ideas singing loudly<br />Ali Anani<br />
  2. 2. Small changes, but big effects<br />The Butterfly Effect is well-established wherein small causes might scale up over time to yield big effects<br />
  3. 3. Nature is Full of exemplary examples of the butterfly effect- to help your business grow<br />Opal<br />Reflecting and deflecting ideas for your business<br />Micro Nutrients for your business<br />Singing sand for your business<br />
  4. 4. Singing Sand and Singing Ideas<br />Have your heard sand singing?<br />
  5. 5. Singing Sand and Singing Ideas<br />Singing sand, whistling sand or barking sand is sand that produces sound. The sound emission may be caused by wind passing over dunes or by walking on the sand.<br />Certain conditions have to come together to create singing sand:<br />The sand grains have to be round and between 0.1 and 0.5 mm in diameter<br />The sand has to contain silica<br />The sand needs to be at a certain humidity<br />
  6. 6. Singing sand dunes<br />scientists say that collisions between sand grains cause the motions of the grains to become synchronized. The outer layer of the dune vibrates like the cone of a loudspeaker. The particular note depends primarily on the size of the grains<br />The emerging property of singing sand is very sensitive to the conditions in which sand exists. <br />
  7. 7. What causes the Singing Sand?<br />The sound is generated by the stress and pressure of the grains of sand colliding with each other. The collision causes a synchronized movement among the grains, while the outer layer of the dune acts as a giant loudspeaker as the grains fall.<br />Sweet Stress<br />
  8. 8. Question<br />How to find the conditions so that your staff pressure each other to sing while even falling<br />
  9. 9. sound-generating plants<br />Some plants make interesting sounds as well. Ornamental grasses come in many varieties and as wind moves through their foliage, it produces relaxing sounds. <br />
  10. 10. Opal<br />Opal is a closely paled array of millions of spherical particles of amorphous silica stacked in a three dimensional grating. Because of the special grating of the spheres, it has the unique natural ability to diffract sunlight into all the beautiful colors of the rainbow.<br />A condition called crazing affects certain opals, causing them to form internal and external cracks. Crazing is a particularly interesting phenomenon, for it lacks consistency and is unpredictable.<br />
  11. 11. Colorful opal<br />Opal's internal structure makes it diffract light; depending on the conditions in which it formed it can take on many colors. Opal ranges from clear through white, gray, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, magenta, rose, pink, slate, olive, brown, and black. <br />
  12. 12. The long-tail distribution of opal<br />
  13. 13. Opal Structure<br />Opal is made up of layers of precipitated silica spheres in a jelly-like water .<br />The density and pattern of the aligned silica spheres are responsible for the different colors refracted in the Opal. Common Opal lacks this effect, for its spheres are disordered or too compact to permit the light from refracting<br />
  14. 14. Reordering your organization<br />Silica may sing while falling or diffract light depending on its unique structure<br />Behaviors emerge just by making small changes in the ordering of silica spheres<br />Your attempts will give largely common and unworthy results. Those hits that will fall in the long tail are your black sawn. <br />Is it better to plan or use a try-and-find approach? For me, it is the latter<br />
  15. 15. Micronutrients- Small in amount, but big in effect<br />Lack of certain nutrients leads to different plant problems, See the presentation on slideshare entitled, “Managing the Undermanaged Nutrients”<br />
  16. 16. Small variation lead to big behavioral differences<br />Notice the delicate equilibrium<br />
  17. 17. The Same in Enzymes<br />Micronutrient atoms can impact the structure and functions of enzymes as well<br />
  18. 18. Lessons for organizations<br />Lesson 1<br />Look for small variations that impact your organization. Most likely being small they reside in the long tail. They are in disguise.<br />
  19. 19. Lessons for organizations<br />Lesson 2<br />Small variations are not observed by your competitors. Find them as they promote your business and move it to the Blue Ocean<br />
  20. 20. Lessons for organizations<br />Lesson 3<br />Trial-and-find approach is recommended. You have to experiment to get your efforts singing even when collapsing. <br />
  21. 21. Lessons for organizations<br />Lesson 4<br />Look for the micronutrients that make your business grow healthily.<br />
