“The ability to take data - to be able to understand it, to
process it, to extract value from it, to visualize it, to
communicate it's going to be a hugely important skill in the
next decades, not only at the professional level but even at the educational level for
elementary school kids, for high school kids, for college kids. Because now we
really do have essentially free and ubiquitous data. So the
complimentary scarce factor is the ability to understand
that data and extract value from it.”

“The datasexual looks a lot like
you and me, but what’s different is
their preoccupation with personal
data.
They are relentlessly digital, they
obsessively record everything
about their personal lives, and
they think that data is sexy. In
fact, the bigger the data, the sexier
it becomes.
Their lives - from a data
perspective, at least - are perfectly
groomed.”

Planner / Analyst
•
Create and update accurate forecasts on a weekly basis at a
very detailed level, such as the number of packs of each
product SKU needed for a single store. Forecasts evolve
through several iterations before reaching their final state,
allowing and requiring Planners to incorporate data on sales,
inventory, customer activity, etc. as it accumulates in real
time.
•
Improve the accuracy of forecasts and forecasting methods
by understanding the nature, degree, and source of
forecasting errors in reference to a large number of defined
metrics and performance measures.
•
Analyze and understand changes in the factors affecting

Planning teams use the Trends screen to explore and
understand the state of the supply chain, and the
accuracy of their forecasts over time.
For this purpose, the Trends screen is primarily designed
to support the Exploratory Search (Explore-Analyze-
Evaluate) and Comparative Synthesis (Analyze-
Compare-Synthesize) chains, in which Planners and
Managers seek to identify new patterns in time and
supply chain activity and suggest potential causal
factors.
The value of the Trends screen is best understood in the
context of sequences of mode chains, such as Strategic
Oversight in companion with Comparative Synthesis or
Exploration Driven Search in companion to Strategic
Insight.

Wednesday, May 15, 13
Planners will follow the Strategic Oversight chain for
visibility into the status of their published final forecasts
vs. actual activity in the supply chain;
When errors or variances beyond an acceptable
threshold emerge in one or more forecasts, they will
switch to the Strategic Insight chain in order to
understand the new situation.
They will move on to the Comparative Synthesis
chain to revise their forecasts to reflect their newly
generated insights and improved understanding.
They will then switch back to Strategic Oversight to
maintain ongoing awareness of the accuracy and
effectiveness of their revised forecasts over time.

Business Process Optimization
“Process optimization is the discipline of adjusting a process so as to optimize some specified
set of parameters without violating some constraint. The most common goals are minimizing
cost, maximizing throughput, and/or efficiency. This is one of the major quantitative tools in
industrial decision making.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Process_optimization
A business process or business method is a collection of related, structured activities or tasks
that produce a specific service or product (serve a particular goal) for a particular customer or
customers.
Wednesday, May 15, 13
Planning Managers seeking to improve the forecasting
practices and methods of their teams will employ a
sequences of mode chains that begins with Exploratory
driven Search, to identify exemplars of particularly strong
or weak forecasts and forecasting practices.
They will move to Strategic Insight to understand how
and why these practices exhibit strength or weakness.
Comparative Synthesis will help Managers formulate
new or improved measurements and forecasting
practices.
They will rely on Strategic Oversight to gauge the
effectiveness of new or enhanced practices once in effect.

• Using the modes as a generative design tool requires
mapping of information assets.
• Not a one-to-one correspondence between a composite of
modes such as a chain, and an interaction component of
any size or scope.
• Modes are useful as alignment tool for product’s concept
model and users’ mental models.
• Well designed interaction components combine modes
together into compact functions that accomplish more than
one ‘micro-task’ at the same time – e.g. Show conversation
link locates and presents info for exploration /
comprehension/ analysis.
Wednesday, May 15, 13
• Every individual system will have its own idiosyncratic network of
modes and chains that arises from the particular user journeys it
needs to support.  Designers must understand and reference this
local map to create effective systems, and specifically to define
the right UX architecture.
• Local mode networks should be analyzed along three axes: for
recurring modes and mode chains, for intersecting or overlapping
modes and mode chains, and for sequences of modes and
chains.
• Constructive units need ‘linkages’ – not sure what / how to
represent linkage using current language. Continuity is one thing
linkages address and enable. Need an understanding / definition
of continuity.
• Scope of information needed for an activity and the interaction
component that enables it can be addressed via density of info,
or scope of interaction component.

For this purpose, the Trends screen is primarily designed to support the Exploratory Search (Explore-Analyze- Evaluate) and Comparative Synthesis (Analyze- Compare-Synthesize) chains, in which Planners and Managers seek to identify new patterns in time and supply chain activity and suggest potential causal factors. The value of the Trends screen is best understood in the context of sequences of mode chains, such as Strategic Oversight in companion with Comparative Synthesis or Exploration Driven Search in companion to Strategic Insight.

  • 170. Planners will follow the Strategic Oversight chain for visibility into the status of their published final forecasts vs. actual activity in the supply chain; When errors or variances beyond an acceptable threshold emerge in one or more forecasts, they will switch to the Strategic Insight chain in order to understand the new situation. They will move on to the Comparative Synthesis chain to revise their forecasts to reflect their newly generated insights and improved understanding. They will then switch back to Strategic Oversight to maintain ongoing awareness of the accuracy and effectiveness of their revised forecasts over time.

Planning Managers seeking to improve the forecasting practices and methods of their teams will employ a sequences of mode chains that begins with Exploratory driven Search, to identify exemplars of particularly strong or weak forecasts and forecasting practices. They will move to Strategic Insight to understand how and why these practices exhibit strength or weakness. Comparative Synthesis will help Managers formulate new or improved measurements and forecasting practices.

Wednesday, May 15, 13
  • 188. • Every individual system will have its own idiosyncratic network of modes and chains that arises from the particular user journeys it needs to support.  Designers must understand and reference this local map to create effective systems, and specifically to define the right UX architecture. • Local mode networks should be analyzed along three axes: for recurring modes and mode chains, for intersecting or overlapping modes and mode chains, and for sequences of modes and chains. • Constructive units need ‘linkages’ – not sure what / how to represent linkage using current language. Continuity is one thing linkages address and enable. Need an understanding / definition of continuity. • Scope of information needed for an activity and the interaction component that enables it can be addressed via density of info, or scope of interaction component. • Wednesday, May 15, 13
