Continuing our monthly theme, of book recommendations, here’s a short review to tempt you to Re-Imagine.
Having mentioned, to our regular guest bloggers, that I was focussing on books this month – Tony Boobier suggested this one. Having heard Tom Peters live a couple of times, I can attest to him having a Marmite style. He certainly has shaken up some stuffy corporate group-think, and rightly challenged some urban myths.

But, more widely, all is still not well in the CX garden. Despite what feels like a lifetime of various Customer Experience events, books & consultants – all too often we still experience bad service. (more…)
One of the few Leadership books that I have come back to time & time again, is “The 7 habits of Highly Effective People“.
Perhaps, alongside classics from writers like Dale Carnegie or Peter Drucker, this book by the late Stephen Covey, is one you’ve heard of. It might have been mentioned to you, from time to time, over many years.
Did you intend to read it once, but have never gotten around to it? Well, if so, let me encourage you, that it is still very relevant. As with all books truly worth the honorific of being “a classic“, it outlines timeless principles, that still work in business life today. In fact, perhaps even more so. (more…)
This eclectic selection is once more contributed by Netquest, thanks to guest blogger Carlos Ochoa. When I first read his post, I couldn’t resist the multi-disciplinary nature of this recommended reading list.
My first introduction to the Julia language, was mentions at R or Python events, that “the cool kids are writing in Julia these days“. Now, bloggers are always in danger of being on the look out for something topical or trendy, but further investigation revealed that Julia is indeed a useful language with growing usage amongst data scientists.
So, to ensure we are not limited to the more familiar R and Python languages, I’m delighted to extend our series to also look at resources for Julia programmers, or those wanting to consider this language. As before, I’ll share a book recommendation for learning Julia, as well as some online resources, cheat sheets and an event to attend.
I hope this proves useful, for Data Scientists and Insight Leaders, who are seeking to expand their repertoire or achieve better performing code.
