The Digital Revolution Has Only Just Begun

"So. John way back at the start of the pandemic when i was asking people about how this might change aerospace. You were the first person to boldly predict the to me that this is probably going to speed up. The digitalization of the industry accenture does the tech vision report every year. And to be honest with you often focuses on trends that are coming but this year's report felt just really different to me because of how much of the digital change that occurred. Can you take a step back for a moment and talk to me about the rise of digital transformation during the recent crisis. I mean were you surprised by just how much change happened. And how important digital became michael. It is true the pandemic acted as a catalyst for many companies around the digital agenda's. And no. I'm not surprised as i told you when this was starting. I could see it happening almost immediately when when. Kobe was impacting companies. What we saw was increased attention on move to cloud which is the foundation for so much of the valley to gain from digital transformation and then a range of other digital technologies a in l. a. r. vr digital twin thread data analytics. You know even an upgrade to platforms for supply chain manufacturing in the commercial segment those companies.

The State of Agile With Vasco Duarte, Ryan Ripley, and Chris Williams

"One of the questions that came up. I is you know. Let's let's start angry. What pisses us off about. The current state of agile as we experience it daily today. I'm pissed off. And i'm not taking it anymore. I guess i'll i'll jump in here. I've you know todd. And i have been talking a lot lately about we. We've been working with a lot of companies who have been sold. These million dollar multimillion dollar transformations And you know people are slapping different frameworks and different methodologies on top of really deep rooted cultural issues and they're not getting anywhere and at once the money runs out the consultants go away and they're not better off and really tired of watching that play out over and over and over again It's just turned into this big money. Grab where big box consulting firms just slap a bunch of consultants and and others into place. They clear their bench charge as much as they can. They don't really do anything. And then leave and it just That is just perpetuated and over and over again. It leaves a just makes everything more difficult you know. I'm more than happy to come in and clean up and try to teach professional scrum and help companies kind of undo the damage of these big box consultants. But it's like oh. Can we just skip that step in and really learn how to work in new ways and i don't know what do you guys think so. I see the same happening Looking back. I saw the same happening in finland. Let's say late. Two thousand two thousand eight two thousand nine. We heard through the grapevine that accenture have created a natural practice and they had a two hundred page manual and then of course. I was working with At that time two thousand eight dollars working with the one of the first safe adoptions. It was called achard released train at that time. A rt which i thought was kind of a cool art right because his own about art. There's no science to working with people. It's all about leaving the moment understanding. What's going on and reacting and then of course failing but learning quickly and then adjusting right and if i think what what ryan is said and turn the to all the way up to eleven. I would say that we have lost our way we were talking about. The ryan was talking about bringing kanban back to its origins simply fight. Well i would like to remind everybody that this whole atul think did not start with -scriminate. Didn't start with condon either. It started with the small talk community. Doing what they called at that time. Extreme programming xp and if we go all the way back to the roots extreme programming was taking the best practices and just turning it all the way up to eleven. We hear a lot about how safe doesn't have a customer in the big picture. And so on juno that. Xp had a practice called customer in the room so every team had a customer literally. That's what they called it. The customer that told them whether they were going in the right direction. So if i go to what pisses me off is that we're forgetting what it was that we started back in the late nineties. Early two thousands. And i'm not talking about technical practices. We've forgotten those very much. That's for sure. But i'm talking about everything else. Even the the whole idea of what agile is about agile is not about delivering more crap faster. It's about delivering less but delivering what matters about focusing on value. It's about iterating quickly and so the theme in in my presence here on this episode is gonna be you know. How do we turn at all the way up to eleven. Just like expedia back in the in the late ninety s. I liked that. I feel that this thing about who buys the most agile right now. It's either banks or insurance. Companies tend to have the biggest budgets to put out jalen play and so they're of a certain size by their nature if you look at the startup community if you look at small enterprise small medium business if you look beyond tech and you look at how companies are are are pivoting and adapting now during covid nineteen. I still see a lot of really good. Agile really customer focused agile. They get it because they have to. They're hungry. It's easy when you go around a small business to see the customer desire to say. How do we want our customers to feel. That question is present in everybody's mind. We want customers to feel cared for special part of something good. We want them to have not features. Stop talking about features and buttons do but what capabilities we give them and again. I prefer to talk about that. In terms of feelings customers feel safe. Customers feel tend to cared for whereas the minute you bring into a large scale environment. Things start getting compromise. Things get lost in translation as we try to make this work at scale.

Walmart's Commitment to Hiring Veterans

"The right skills obviously is one of the core values that you have there. And the company is a foundational member of a new vet tech employer consortium. That's going to be helping. Provide training for high tech skills for careers in technology for veterans. Tell me about that program. How did it come about in. Who can access it. Well all answer it by by stepping back just a little bit and talking about things from a workforce development and labour market could perspective and even before that when walmart entered into lower the last five years we entered into this period where we really needed to integrate bland. The worlds of in store experience and an online experience for customers and through those efforts in kobe really highlighted the need and importance of us to be able to provide this omni channel or omni experienced for people. That's just a seamless. Shopping experience between the online and the in person domains. And what that has entailed is that we have any number of roles as part of this this leap into digital in leaning into digital where we have product developers and project managers and user experience individuals data scientists obviously the software developers and engineers in the cybersecurity information security individuals and it creates created. This huge demand going back to that workforce prominent so we needed to figure out how we considered our demand. What was the supply opportunities that were out there in. How do we build an opportunity to connect the two and this tech program that was established by the veterans administration or funded by the veterans administration and in partners with the us chamber of commerce accenture and others. We recognize the importance of it right away and so what it does is it helps take military service members. It gives them certain skills like cloud architecture or any number of other areas and with through those skills makes them exactly what we're looking for and we can bring people in who have those foundational skills and then continued to develop them into the people that were looking to grow over time. So we're super excited about that program itself that just one example within the employment heller that we're very interested in it. Aligned with our workforce demand and lets us tap into the veteran talent pipeline in a way that is that skill bridging activity in puts all that together in a really interesting and fun public private partnership example a model that we hope to see happen. Not just in the technologies but other areas over time how veteran access program through the va. It's just a simple google to the vet tech program. B. e. t. t. e. c. And the us chamber of commerce or the veterans administration. You can follow the path to that father clicks to that and check it out and we hope to see you through the program.

Understanding How And Why Your Market Makes Decisions

"We all know that knowledge is power of course, data about Customer Habits and Consumer Habits is power as well more than ever. When we shift in business, it's key to understand how and why your market makes decisions. So Jonathan Silver he is the founder and CEO of affinity solutions. Now, affinity is the authoritative source for truth for news outlets not for profits research firms and businesses in the US and the only source for purchase insights that can be analyzed by demographic geographic lifestyle segment and political affiliation affinities mission is to. Transform data insights into experiences that improve people's lives. Jonathan I'm excited to have you here and talk to our Nice Guy. Community. Welcome to the show Ed. Great to meet you doug thanks for having me on I. AM happy that I'm happy to have you here and you know a guy that wrote a book called Nice Guys Finish First. I was completely attracted to the the data for good. So tell me a little bit about what data for good is and how that might affect those that might be listening to our show today. Sure so It's great to be on and I wanted to Start by saying a little bit more about sort of the vision of affinity solutions which for me, we've been running the business now for about Fifteen years, but we've had much more clarity of vision crystallize over the last year, which is. To. Use data to improve people's lives and You alluded to kind of what our business is about. But we have detail purchase behavior on about one hundred, million consumers ninety million in the US A- ten million in other countries. we have that data by the way because we run a kind of loyalty program, we dented that we provide to over three thousand banks the reward customers when shop at. We tell depot wallgreens. So data for good is an extension of the vision of. Using data to improve people's lives that we launched during the coronavirus. During this crisis and we we started by giving away some of our data to scientists to academics researchers. Some. Not for profits to help government agencies with policy making and it was Kinda shocking to me that government entities how much they fly blind. They don't have the information on how their towns cities. Counties are doing. Early and I was like well, their sales tax I mean why? Why wouldn't they get that quickly but apparently, even sales tax information takes a couple of months for a for them to get information. So data data for good was first about helping government policymakers by giving them the information they need to navigate their own decisions, but then it quickly expanded on to provide businesses visibility they need themselves to navigate this crisis and so. you know insights on. What customers are doing outside of businesses own four walls. That's been our mantra for for a long time that's always been important. But it's become absolutely critical during Cova. This sort of outside in view of consumer behavior has become essential especially now because you know during particularly in the march, April. But even even now, you know where there's been a hole punched in their own data that the businesses were looking at you know the purchases in their own stores. On. Their own websites because people just stop coming in coming in a lot less. So businesses have been flying completely blind kind of like A. analogy is like a fighter pilot flying between two Kanye walls that instrumentation So right now, we're delivering through partnerships with companies like Deloitte, accenture and bane and McKinsey weekly updates to businesses to help them navigate. We're also providing the press in our website affinity solutions, dot COM and weekly updates on what's happening in the economy to call it a business recovery scorecard. which looks at bellwether categories like. Grocery and and home delivery and. You know as people come out of their homes So it'll be interesting. You know that data, which is for the good of not for profit scientists. It's for the good of businesses for the good of consumers We're going to be looking very closely at how consumer behavior will change permanently. As a result of this crisis, we're seeing a lot more purchases on the web. So data for good is really about providing that level of insight to a broader community.

Addressing Cybersecurity Breaches in a COVID-19 Environment

"Time we were talking in person at the Sava Fusion Center in Sydney and has in the world challenge since we recorded that particular episode and I think it's a really Opportune. Time now, considering accenture has allowed incident response team in various parts of the world but obviously here in the I said Ole side on the tops of attacks the is being used and indeed the motivational the reasons for those attacks I think we might come to you first off the shift in the landscape I've the last few months and particularly since episode one some of the okay from the incident response time. Yes. You'll Chris really really interesting question I'm. I think all follow back to sort of March timeframe when things really starting to get started we saw massive uptake, Immuno covid nineteen themed fishing spear phishing email attacks, which is pretty consistent. With every time we've seen some major political shift or a major incident that gets people's emotions engaged. cybercriminals are pretty quick to the tactics to focus on that to exploit those emotions to get people to. Click on links and install alway but there's absolutely no denying sitting back now in where we end of July and looking back since that time frame it's all about ransomware. It is an absolute epidemic. We are saying certainly strategy. I don't think we've ever seen anything of what we're saying right now but even globally, I, mean there are massive companies just in the last few days Gombe and is all over the price and they've had an unprecedented attack. So I think ransomware is a is a big. Uptick we've seen in terms of changing the threat landscape, but the motivation full that ransomware, and also we've had some federal government, even prime ministerial level announcements in terms of the, but they'd foreign nation state actor motivation, but these ransomware attacks. Ransom crew ransomware crews, running these these campaigns will what what can enterprise be doing? What are you advising your clients in this? And what does what are some of those key controls that enterprise have to stop to get rot? That strike question I think come going back to the whole sort of state basting thread actors in the motivation. What I'm looking at. The question everyone was asking Ileana. These why we sing his uptick you know what's the connection and I've been racking my brain to try to understand what is the connection between the change in circumstances pulse covid nineteen and the increase in ransomware attacks. And what what we've managed to not come off the back of a major incident response way with we're added for sort of full wakes going up against the very threat actor the ICS's sent had only the intelligence reports at-bats June. And what what we sort of fan was during that analysis with different tactics use that I've never seen used before. A lot of the trade crafts very very similar but what we saw will threat actors. The actual attack is doing the attack that to deploy the ransomware with very very unskilled. These were not people who were very sophisticated in terms of their trade craft knowing what they were doing, but they were following a script and they were using automation and so what what I worked at pretty quickly in that sort of analysis was that what we're dealing with the question of why what's the connection but it's how how have threat actors managed to scale operations so quickly and I think it's been a combination of a more automation scripting intend to these attacks in the playbook they using. And possibly more outsourcing in points about the multiple parties they in gold in a ransomware as a service, it's a thing that's used by criminals who break in and gain access to monetize the access that go. So there are different actors during different parts of the service certainly inexperience what's what's been Jimmy leading to this massive uptake is the scale these attackers can now will brian up. So was the to the cut and paste approach, but it wasn't necessarily one act up. More based tools, the automated tools and also some of the services the as you said, the ransomware is a service. Became was it would you? I would the word be unleashed for anyone to use or did you get a sense of was potentially coordination there or was it just? Just. Random tiles in the application of these tools. Now, that's that's a great question. So the ransom web. The to us to make the money to the stuff that actually encrypt dot or an extra traits daughter where you put your, you know your bitcoins into it's an automated platform. There was no human direction. It is literally you get a self service ticket you go up to a you know this this website on the Dogwood you punching you ticket number it tells you how much you need to pay. The whole process is automated, and so that's that's just like A. Sas Platform that the attackers are using to monetize their tax and then the people who do the ransomware extortion they split the proceeds with the attackers had actually broken into the organization and gain the access necessary to deploy the ransomware tools. Now, this first group of people actually breaking, they're the ones where we're seeing a local coordination. So it's not once right active multiple tread actors, but one of the groups that does this figured out how to scale operation that got. Literally play by play. I you run this command then you run that command and they didn't gonNA help this. If you get stuck, there's a website you go to someone can give you help, and so that's that's what I think. The big difference we've seen in the last six months as the scale of people being compromised. Has Gone up substantially.

That matters because commercial aerospace is responsible for about three quarters of the whole aerospace and defense sectors business activity. Cash is king right now throughout the supply chain and companies are struggling to have enough liquidity, according to what several advisors and analysts tell aviation week. while. Liquidity is more of a function of the wider economic downturn inside aerospace. There are even bigger challenges. Where production rates were once being pushed higher now a Williams are slashing them cascading pressure down the supply chain. At the L. A. M. in the top tier level. It has probably never been more important to have insight into your supply chain. Joining me to talk about that need, and what to do about it are John Schmidt? The Global Andy Lead at Accenture and Joyce Klein. Accenture leader in applied intelligence in the North American amd practice John Joyce. Welcome back. Thanks might go good to be back so John let me start with you. It seems obvious that OEM's and tier ones want insight into their suppliers. But while that was always true, I used to be about making sure that there were no bottlenecks that slowed or stop record high production now things chain what of new conditions that demand and customers pay better attention to their supply chain. Might go and in many ways the aerospace industry you know has a clear split between the companies that are working in the Corso world, and does indefens- you in the commercial. As you say, you know the concern used to be, we have a supply constrained world with very predictable demand, right always pushing for more trying take need those increased rates pushed by Boeing and. and Airbus and in the current world that's changed dramatically to being more of a supply volatile with unpredictable demand in the defense and space side of things you know things have largely remained in a predictable demand with an increased supply chain volatility, so by just keep looking at those things, predictability and the the constraint or volatility the spy chain. That's where the primary differences. And Commercial. We know that demand is going to be directly related to the bounce back of commercial air travel and the relative rates airlines choose to bring back stored aircraft versus take more efficient models on order from the OEM's causing more volatility in and demand, variability and defense. It's a bit different again. Demand Israel remained and the supply chains been impacted by Kobe in some cases they're tier one two or three companies, who source both commercial and defense or trying to generate cash to cover expenses and other cases, local Cobra outbreaks, and our common actions are impacting the spires ability to deliver on schedule, known both cases, aerospace and defense companies need. To deal with all totally like never before whether commercial or defense. So Joyce. Last time John and I talked here on Chuck six with. He kind of gave me the peak and do some new technology you all were working on. It's a new capability to peer into the supply chain including using an algorithm approach that allows more predictive insight, potentially even the ability to hotspot. What factories might be in trouble in the future? Can you tell us a little bit about what accenture is working on? And how does this work? Yes, absolutely Michael Accenture? We've been working with our clients in the supply chain area for many years using analytics and machine learning. In fact, if you go back to last year's pariser show in our accenture shall a. we had a digital showcase. Demo that focused on intelligence supply chain, and what this demo is a together machine, learning and artificial intelligence, and we used I at supply chain Europe e data to really understand delivery delays identify missing parts. We also looked at the opportunity for Automation Muller. Doing now is we're bringing together? All Lot of data sets and we're using artificial intelligence to help companies deal with the increase in volatility manage. Manage uncertainty and really get at supplier resiliency. That's really the core of what our solution is all about now so for North, America a and D client what we've done is we've taken and artificial intelligence engine that uses the supplier Jadot and what we're trying to do. We're actually working to predict the number of days late or a particular part, and we're doing that by bringing together a supplier. Number roaches order number eleven worry day in quantity, combination you all that information, Heather actually identify the number of as laid the opulent part is going to be and so by knowing the number of days way them. What were able to do is fight and determine. Do I have enough inventory? As coverage or that? Particular part is ultimately if I Joan I need to make additional decisions around production, and so what? We've been able to do with our solution. Experience up to ten percent improvement apart availability production. And we're also able to change the role of the delivery service analyst. Previous lanes individuals really operating. All here.

"Remond, welcome to the twin Wa podcast. Thank you for having me Sam, then a few years in the making and I'm glad we're able to do this. You know what it only takes a global pandemic to make this conversation happen. These are the best conversations I think when I'm finally able to connect with with friends and you know folks I know from industry, and you and I in particular I. Think I've been trying to make this conversation happen for as you said a few years and it's always. I'm going to be in Asia. I'm not in the bay area and. been able to to make it happen so super, super, super excited. Get this going. Let's start out as we usually do here on the show and have you share a little bit about your background? You work in ethical and responsible How did you come into into that field? In the answer, that is a lot of meandering. By background data scientists in a social scientist. I would officially say me Quantitative Social Scientists I have degrees in political science management economics. Bastions quantitative methods one degree or like five or six. I know folks like you. But I moved to Silicon Valley in twenty thirteen to receive a job in this weird little fields called details, science which I had heard about anecdotally while Mike Kishi procurement ucse everybody's crazy. Nobody understood while leaving a political science teach de Haram to do some weird tech job on Humira seventy years later. with Dina Science in anything related to data signs in. Being the only thing people talk about so after my stint as a data scientist action, teaching data science at bootcamp, cold medicine, and that's when. I was doing talks on polling, the elections and in the sense of how numbers and statistics can be misleading, because I woke background and things design only and quantity of human behavior analysis and you know extension was three years ago. Looking for someone to lead this weird thing is sponsored. And that's how that's how! That's how I got this job. And so you've been at accenture. How long now three years actually hit the three year mark in early, February wow nice, nice, which sponsor air world makes the ancient. Absolutely. And you're based in San Francisco. How have things been going for you with? Shelter in place and covert, and all that kind of stuff, yeah I mean fortunately San Francisco had a really good response and people stayed at home than they more or less have been listening. I think everyone just getting antsy, so I see more and more people although people whistle being careful. Fortunately, it's been pretty quiet. Ellen Mission Bay, which is near the UCSF hospitals. and. It hasn't been that bad I fortunately. I live in a really walkable neighborhood is parks here by CETERA, so it hasn't been over the fuzzy I just think this is also the shortest as I've a longest amount of time. I have ever spent not flying somewhere in the last few years, so it's been nice yeah. I've commented to to fight back just earlier today. Like by this time a normal year I'd have been probably to half a dozen at least conference. Is You know not? That's not a dozen. It's probably would have been around the world a couple times, but I mean it's funny because I have all these place holders on my calendar when by one they all truck, but you know. By now I would have been in London what Vice. India and the Nordic sexually this supposed to be doing it for different Nordic countries to visit different accenture offices, client partners, and then in a month those supposed to be in Atlanta. still have this thing in Singapore.

What A&D Companies Should Invest In After COVID-19

"Can you tell us a little bit about the Tech Vision? Report and the survey that accenture has completed of all of these. Amd Xhosa and other senior leaders Michael. Every year accenture surveys over six thousand senior executives across twenty four industries including aerospace and defense. And it's a great way to get a pulse. On how companies how executives see technology and how it can help them transform and Change Your Business and as you pointed out earlier you know. We're we're we're in a stage of of Nevers so we we got unprecedented change. However as an industry and defence almost by definition solves large audacious. And so. That's what we have basing us. And this year's technology vision shows I think a good snapshot in terms a what are what are your executive. What is what's their perspective. What are their expectations around? How digital can help them navigate and certainly Looking you know post pandemic and what's important for companies to survive long term is around systems resiliency security looking at. How do they? How do they interact with with customers? Now Remotely how do I use a? I gotta use robotics things like that to increase safety and have an interaction that you want to have a with your customer. How do I introduce resiliency under the supply chain how do I innovate? Innovation was a key area that came out initiate technology vision. And so so. The report this year shows how aerospace and defense companies can use that in order to set up to get through the short-term chaos and as well setting up for for the nest in terms of longer term and viewing with with more certainty than we as. An industry are typically. Have again looking at that. Tech Vision report digital is the overarching theme. And I see these these five focal points. The I and experience a and mead the dilemma of smart things robots in the wild. Is You guys talk about and innovation DNA? And we're going to get into each of these but John. Why do these new technologies like the one jeff just talked about have the potential to disrupt handy and coming nearest so much? Why these fought? The five trends are really brought together from all the research that Jeff is talking about earlier in in when I kind of translate them into aerospace and defense and I know we're going to dive into him. We look at it across what I'll call general kind of value chain ride starting with the customer experience and that starts on the flight deck with the everybody from the crew to the passengers in seats going. Onto HOW COMPANIES ENGINEER MANUFACTURED PRODUCTS. How they work with their extended supply chain operations in aftermarket and of course is a foundational element across all of this stuff around software and information security analytics artificial intelligence and talent and expertise itself in when we can look at some of the statistics that came out of this. In terms of new technologies disrupting or refining. Is that seventy. One percent of aerospace and defense executives believe robotics are gonNA enable next generation of services which is a pretty big component of a executives looking at robotic specifically seventy seven percent already piloting or implementing. Ai Solutions. I would just maybe not such a huge surprised me although I think we can talk more about that later as well. Eighty one percent think they're connected products and services are GonNa continue to be updated. Important Component of growth in their futures and a ninety percent believed that they need to elevate relationships with their customers as partners in engaging and engaging better technology so let's Start diving into them We might as well right away Couple of interesting statistics. I've seen in the sneak peek of the report. You guys gave me seventy two percent of Andy executives that you pulled agree. That organizations need to dramatically in reengineer and I emphasize that dramatically reengineer to bring technology into a more human centric manner John this resonates with a lot of people in the wake of the seven three seven Max issues but as you and I have talked about for years. India has been wrestling with user interface and information overload for a while. This go with that. I think I think it does and and yet I would take this at even broader sense rights at the broadest sense again going back to that maybe the value chain is loosely described it starting with the pilots and the crew and a passenger experience and then thinking about next generation technology driven improvements. They'll be taking more human centric approach. So for instance we used to talk a lot about in-flight experienced for entertainment and bring your own device but now thinking about going forward how you take. Technology and new ways of engineering product to improve comfort hygiene and safety on the aircraft for instance in in the commercial side no then move onto production operations flight controls and all the way through maintenance and we're technology is able to impact our ability to engineer products. That better accomplish their tasks and in essence. What we're doing is reporting that digital thread that we've talked about with an eye towards how people interact with technology to accomplish your jobs at every step from you know the first part of Innovation Engineering Manufacturing Assembly production and operations so it seems part and parcel to the issue has been the rise of artificial intelligence and again looking at the report here.

Parnas attorney asks William Barr to recuse himself from investigation

"The attorney general in on whatever was going on there in the Ukraine I have never spoken to attorney general bar. You're about this investigation ever. I have been circumspect. Careful exceedingly careful. Not only that Parnasse knows that. I told a several times that I would make sure I would never go to the attorney general with it so I wouldn't compromise it. That's really on Fox News tonight making his own case while his has indicted one time. Buddy is doing the same Lev Parnassus attorney today requested that. Attorney General William Bar recused himself take himself out of the federal campaign finance case against Parnis. He's also calling for the appointment of a special prosecutor. Claiming prosecutors have refused to meet with him and receive receive information on the president. Giuliani and the other significant players here is a reminder of what parnes told Rachel Matto about the role all that Bill Barr played. Do you know if Mr Giuliani was ever in contact with Mr Bar specifically about the fact that he was trying to get Ukraine to announce these investigation into Joe Biden. Absolutely Mr Bar knew about that. Mr Bar known everything. The difference between white trump so powerful now. He wasn't as powerful in sixteen seventeen. He became the powerful when he got William Bar. That gets your attention as they say and with us for more tonight Maya wildly former assistant. US Attorney for the Southern District of New York now with the new school here in New York. And Rick Wilson Longtime Republican strategists co-founder of the Lincoln Project A SUPERPAC created created by conservatives with the aim of defeating trump and trump ISM. His new book goes a long way toward that very ideal running against the devil. A plot to save America got from trump and Democrats from themselves. We welcome you both tonight. Maya Wiley in normal times would love to have a lock accenture. Deal with the Fed's New York. Would there be an investigation. Launched as in. Do you hear what this guy is saying about people at the highest levels of of our government. That's a hard question to answer quite honestly Brian. And here's what I mean by that. I don't think there's any question that William Bar has earned earned himself and impeachment inquiry. So that's clear and that starts from his misrepresenting the muller pro report before. It's it's released knowing that Robert Mueller have some issues with the way he's handling it that goes to the fact that he himself has personally flown around the globe helping helping to kind of try to stir up some of the dirt that Donald Trump wants all kinds of reasons that we could list about. Why William Barr himself deserves some scrutiny? In some oversight that's very different from saying in in different world where Donald Trump was not president accident love. parnassus would be would have some kind of cooperation agreement. Or where William Sorry was not attorney general and that's because we just don't know enough about all all the evidence that the US Attorney's office has if your in the US Attorney's office and someone just doesn't have anything to offer you if they cooperate great. Meaning you don't believe they're telling the truth or you have so much evidence that you don't believe they can add to the evidence that you have or both you would have a legitimate reason not to enter into a cooperation agreement with someone and left Parnasse. We should remember eleventh. PARNIS is has some of his assertions and the Rachel maddow interview have documents. Those are documents the. US Attorney's office had and enabled him to share their other allegations allegations that he makes that. He says he believes but he doesn't necessarily offer any directed specific knowledge to suggest just that he could offer anything more substantive so. I think we have to separate out whether there's huge issues of public trust with William Bar and there's it's a question about whether I think the. US Attorney for the Southern District. Berman should cues with regard to Rudy Giuliani because he is the one who recommended Rudy Giuliani for US attorney spot with Donald Trump and appearance of conflict or appearance of impropriety. It is enough to recuse because we have to have the public believing in the institutions. But I don't want to go so far as to say that just by definition because left Parnassus is saying. He should have a cooperation agreement. He should have a cooperation agreement. Rick Wilson at a more basic societal level. When you think about it ah in the last seven to ten days we have come to know a landscaper from Connecticut? Who pardoned the double negative left? Parnis said he has never never seen him not drunk and now the European guy in the Maga- hat with a Belgian ip address. How is it that we we come to meet these characters? Surrounding in the orbit of the President of the United States there are some mystical gravitational force surrounding Donald Trump that attracts the worst griff tres scales scumbags roadside hobos incipient serial killers weirdos. These guys are attracted to him. Because they're like the d the D and E and F level operatives in this world and for whatever reason they feel empowered and it's pretty easy you show up at the trump hotel if you can afford the twenty two dollar cocktails. You're in the club. And so that's why we see guys like hide showing up and that's why you see all these all these other sort of oddball characters always surrounding trump and and and it's also because you know most of the people that that are in this rudy PARNIS orbit in particular. You know they come out of this eastern European whatever version of of of Hustle. Oh they're running is always inflected with whatever the sort of post-soviet corruption vibe and it seems to be very much definitional additional trump's orbit rick starting with you I want you and my answer the same question and I hate that. It's an a negative vein about the impeachment in trial. What are you girding for or resigned to girding for Mitch McConnell to choke this thing out as quickly as he can? There's no other option for McConnell right now if the dam breaks on any vote and the reason he didn't go for an immediate dismissal. Vote obviously as everyone else's covered was that he knows was if he loses one. It shakes the idea that he can control this process completely. So he's going to be very careful. He's going to move as quickly as he possibly can. He's going to try to make this as Dulles he can. Which I think is why as as clean with chain you earlier? He thought he thought he's GonNa win. By moving into the night. I think there's enormous public interest in this but on the optimistic side there will always be more information coming and these senators are not blind to the fact that trump lies to them all the time and that every time. They think they've gotten to the bottom of something with trump. There's worse things below it so I think you're going to see some skepticism building especially as the outside outside coverage continues to roll on in terms of both the story and the other revelations about Ukraine situation I can offer you my upwards of thirty seconds before I have to take our first break.

"At a good time. I think are when you consider just how hard the consulting businesses becoming and given everything you've just said how is what you're saying. Not essentially what McKinsey Bain Accenture, Deloitte Thomson. How is it? Not what they're interested in doing or looking to corner. That's a really good question. But answer in two parts on the one hand. I'd spend about nineteen years Accenture, primarily in the technology. Demane mile my last job extension. What's have extension digital? So how? Create an Lawrence Accenture digital business on the African continent for Accenture when you think about digital transformation. It's one pot having really big and bold ideas. Another part of that is actually playing an access the data that makes his ideas. Real in the consulting fraternity your many organizations accessing data is hard to come by as a credit bureau. Charging is one of the more privilege organizations that work under the national credit act that allowed an entrusted to work with consumer data. When I think about the big ideas and my experience in transforming organizations and given the custodian ship of consumer data, which comes a lot of burden and responsibility. When I put that together, I feel that my experience transformation and being entrusted with the customer data and business data allows me to rethink about problems. But actually be able to execute on this big ideas. So it's a new phase in my personal career. But one. Nets allowing me to move into a world where data is now ubiquitous where data is everything we talk about. And being a custodian of that allows me to ask the question can I solve problems in the real world that surpassed data or technology because in a world where technology is everything we should care less about the tech and more what solving problems at matter for the country for its people and for the economy. So I think if you in your current role and correct me if I'm wrong in in terms of how Evan Toma understanding of this when I think of them about hell coz and the disruptive influence they've had in the financial industry. I see companies like trans union being similarly disruptive to the consulting business, for instance, which Kant leverage swathes of data sets garnered over the years.

"Stephen is a business author consultant and speaker on the topics of innovation and collaboration. He started his innovation work over twenty years ago while thought founding and leading twenty thousand person innovation practice at the consulting firm Accenture since then he has written five books, including best practices are stupid, which was named the best innovation creativity. Book of the year by eight hundred CEO read and is an international number one business bestseller. His personality poker card game has been used in twenty five countries around the world to create high performing innovation teams, Stephen has presented his provocative impractical strategies to audiences in over fifty countries in two thousand fifteen he was inducted into the speaker hall of fame in two thousand seventeen he was a regular judge and mentor on TLC innovation reality television show, girl. Starter. Welcome to the program. Steven, how are you my friend? I'm doing fantastically. So I'm looking forward to this. Well, this is awesome. We were just saying before we went pre live. It was months ago that we initiated contact, and we got this on the calendar for today. And I'm so excited that we get to showcase all your yummy today with the loyal listeners and the podcast scraper. So thank you for the gift of your time. I know how off the hook busy. You are. Oh to me. This is my pleasure. I love doing this. This is fantastic. So there's a couple of things everybody who falls me, which I'm very grateful for knows that my style and approach to my weekly interviews is unscripted. I believe it makes for a much more organic and authentic conversation. But the one thing I do typically start off wake as a general question is what was the inception of your journey in terms of what people would now glean from your success? In your accolades today knowing that everybody has a backstory not everything is a bullseye a win win. There's usually a lot of strife a lot of struggle. A lot of adversity. That one has to overcome in which to reach the level in which you have. So can we talk a little bit about that Steven sure I think the big question is which one there there are certainly as with anybody who's been doing this long as I have we've had a number of hiccups roadblocks speed bumps everyone, a call them. I think the first one I've probably the one that's most memorable to me because it was a major shift in terms of the content that focused on is in the early nineties. I was one of the leaders of Accenture business process. Reengineering practice, basically, we made companies more efficient we would opt Mayes companies and in the process of optimizing them. People would was their jobs. There was downsizing taking place, and I knew people losing jobs and one of the companies that went to ten thousand people losing their jobs because of the work that we were doing. But it was one day when I actually started to see was watching TV show about three people who lost their jobs and the impact it had in their life. That said I can't do this anymore. So I took a leave of absence in reinvented myself over twenty years ago as an innovation person instead of helping companies shrink I help companies grow. And that's been a commitment that have had to myself since that time, the ODA fall love that. And so one thing that I read in the bio here that really captures my interest in I haven't had a chance at this point to unfortunately, read it, but the title of your book best practices are stupid. Can you extrapolate upon that elaborate a little bit upon that? Because that's a unique title. Well, it's interesting titles. You choose for the selling of the book. I mean, that's a little provocative into our best practice. Best practices. Stupid quite often. They are not. Not a hundred percent of the time. But sometime most of the time they are. And there's really there's three reasons. One reason is. If you are replicating what somebody else's doing you're playing a game of catch up. So by the time you implement their best practice they're onto the next practice. So you can't differentiate when you replicate. And so the key here is let's just make sure that we're best practices can be useful for things, which are just sort of table stakes. We have to be efficient at this. And we need to be good at it. But it's not why people do business with us..
