Strong impetus for change With the serious failures and limitations of the legacy system, there was a strong impetus for replacing the legacy system with the ERP product. Even though the ERP implementation would have a high cost to the company, management was able to see value in implementing the ERP product and was not looking at cost avoidance. When I was working at Chemistdirect. The scope of the project grew too large and with the budget limitations, the project had to be abandoned after 6 months.
Genius mythology In ancient Romethe genius plural in Latin genii was the guiding spirit or tutelary deity of a personfamily gensor place genius loci.
They had advocated the analysis of reaction time and sensory acuity as measures of "neurophysiological efficiency" and the analysis of sensory acuity as a measure of intelligence. He studied the work of his older half-cousin Charles Darwin about biological evolution. Hypothesizing that eminence is inherited from ancestors, Galton did a study of families of eminent people in Britain, publishing it in as Hereditary Genius.
Carl Friedrich Gauss and Adolphe Quetelet.
Gauss discovered the normal distribution bell-shaped curve: Quetelet discovered that the bell-shaped curve applied to social statistics gathered by the French government in the course of its normal processes on large numbers of people passing through the courts and the military.
His initial work in criminology led him to observe "the greater the number of individuals observed the more do peculiarities become effaced This ideal from which the peculiarities were effaced became "the average man".
In contrast to Quetelet, Galton's average man was not statistical but was theoretical only. There was no measure of general averageness, only a large number of very specific averages.
Setting out to discover a general measure of the average, Galton looked at educational statistics and found bell-curves in test results of all sorts; initially in mathematics grades for the final honors examination and in entrance examination scores for Sandhurst.
Galton's method in Hereditary Genius was to count and assess the eminent relatives of eminent men. He found that the number of eminent relatives was greater with a closer degree of kinship.
This work is considered the first example of historiometryan analytical study of historical human progress. The work is controversial and has been criticized for several reasons.
Galton then departed from Gauss in a way that became crucial to the history of the 20th century AD.
The bell-shaped curve was not random, he concluded. The differences between the average and the upper end were due to a non-random factor, "natural ability", which he defined as "those qualities of intellect and disposition, which urge and qualify men to perform acts that lead to reputation…a nature which, when left to itself, will, urged by an inherent stimulus, climb the path that leads to eminence.
Criticisms include that Galton's study fails to account for the impact of social status and the associated availability of resources in the form of economic inheritance, meaning that inherited "eminence" or "genius" can be gained through the enriched environment provided by wealthy families.
Galton went on to develop the field of eugenics. Persons with genius tend to have strong intuitions about their domains, and they build on these insights with tremendous energy. It was as though he could say, 'Good artists don't paint like this, but I paint like this.Dear Twitpic Community - thank you for all the wonderful photos you have taken over the years.
