"I think you've gotta captured the spirit of the thing, right? That'll play big tonight awesome. That was actually the Great Lou. Brown for Major League, but Derek shown. As. Luke Brown was is aware that not much is being expected from your buck buckles in twenty twenty. I think the one thing that we've talked about private privately. The same thing I've talked about is just the fact that whatever people externally say. We really don't care I care what our group thanks and what our staff thinks and our baseball staff. Thanks and we'll kind of deal with those and you know I think. The players had really good conversations amongst themselves. Mike I hope he doesn't take that Lou. Brown thing any further and have a cardboard cutout of Bob nutting in the locker room, saying you guys stink. You know it may come to that because a lot of people also probably unaware when when the negotiations were taking place between the new general manager. Ben Sherrington and Derek Shelton they were delayed because Shelton had a guy on the other line about white walls and he wanted to. Get that taken care of. Agreed to be the pirates manager. Bet You know I hope they go. Eight and sixteen could bring out the Bull Durham lolly gagging speech. We are. We would eight Larry it's a miracle. It's a miracle. Bench Sherrington general manager finalized his thirty man roster yesterday, sixteen pitchers and fourteen position. Players of the parts kept sixteen pitchers. Harrington said in part because they're not sure what they have, and some of these guys and in part, because they're not sure what roles might suit these pitchers best. I guess I would say it's not specific to roles I I know. Sheltie shared that. I think in terms of the Rosser decision itself probably more about Holding onto is much pitching as we can, and giving ourselves more time to learn and give been giving guys more more time to develop and get you know, get competition against Major League hitters also and You know we're GONNA. We're we're excited to get into games we'll. We'll continue to learn more about that group, and whether that's you know obviously. In a couple of weeks we may have a roster decision, but the the decision how roles evolve. would say is less about. How many pitchers were carrying and We're just. WERE WE WANNA? Give ourselves a chance to learn as much as we can about as many pictures.

"The puck Os and the cardinals must grove Scott up break his. Routine with these guys have. Have early, and then you know breaking down a little bit later against the cardinals particularly this year in which these division. Games are so important rob. Yeah and you know I honestly. Look Sixty game season. You know We're going to have something. Pre game show tonight that the last three years nine teams. Would have made the playoffs after sixty games that did not so. That's a pretty sizable percentage. I mean. That's you know. Pushing forty percent of the teams that that would have made the playoffs. That didn't make the last year. The nationals who won the world series wouldn't have made the playoffs after sixty games. So you have a chance to me the chance for the pirates. The offense should be okay. You know it definitely needs to take a little bit of a step forward. To emerge, you know as a top seven or eight offense in the League to me. Starting pitching is going to be really interesting, because there's there's talent there Joe Moscow. Finish the season strong last year. Chad cools a talented guy. We've seen Trevor Williams for a full calendar year. He's one of the best pitchers in the league. Mitch Keller is a guy that was ballyhooed as prospect and you know. Can this new regime sort of help him? Live up to being a you know. James and town type front of the rotation type starter. I'm really eager to see Joe Strove pitch because he looked great in the exhibition game. You look great and spring training before that you know if the pirates are going to do something I think it's going to start with the starting pitching and that starts tonight. Yeah, we had. Just. Wanted to ask you if you had a well groomed ball field by your house somewhere where the Blue Jays could play maybe. Yeah that is interesting I mean. No, I got I got more you. Yeah, that's that's an interesting story for sure..

"On. Who? It's ready Bamut the DNA morning show. Bill Crawford joined right now by our buddy. Rob King from at and T. Sports net king. What's up, buddy? How are you baseball, guys? How are you hope you're doing well I mean. Can you believe it? Finally? We waited and waited for baseball, and it is finally back tonight. The cardinals and the pirates. Joe Must grow all right so the first question I have for you, Kingere the forty man roster. Finalize a any surprises in your estimation. No. nothing that jumped out I, mean they're you know the the big question was? Are they going to have fifteen pitchers and fifteen position players on the thirty man active, until they have to whittle it down eventually twenty six, or is it going to be sixteen pitchers in fourteenth position players? I just think right now they're. They're still searching for their bullpen, so it makes sense to carry the extra arm and and. Away, we go well. You know the big reason why we're here. Of course COVID, who I'm sure you Bob Dining probably thought that was a shortstop. They had in the The Minor League system I'm not worried about Kobe. He's coming along just fine. He's only nineteen. He's still on the farm system, right? But. The buck goes, have they? You know they they've taken. Their share hits in that regard. Polanco Kiana Kelly now we learn has been dealing with it. Socrates Breda before that and the other guy's name is escaping me, but Ki Ki. Brian Hayes Blake Cedar Yup Yup. Relation to the other teams, how bad have they had it? Such a good question I really I really don't know I think some teams you know. I, I would imagine they're probably in the in the middle of the pack. I really don't know for a fact I will say this though you know. The pirates are relying on certain guys and then a Gregory Polanco. It's really important to the middle of their lineup, trying to give Josh Palsson protection and. They were able to be a decent offensive team a year ago and you're Kinda hoping political big year, and then you mentioned the the bullpen I. Think is the biggest question mark for me heading into the season and without county Keller. Who is there closer boy. At least you felt like. Hey, we get to the ninth-inning. Now. You have some questions you know it's. A little bit of the amount of players, but for me with pirates you know with a couple of guys are really counting on it. It's the quality as much as anything else well. WHAT'S HE GONNA? Do there I mean? Is it a creek? Who Does he call on? Is it just going to be Bhai Committee once again? It seems like. If. They could get some stability here. Even though you know. Hopefully Kelly comes back..

"Is the word. Hearing regarding Britney Spears conservative ship, being moved after a bunch of her fans crashed the zoom call meeting. How do you even do that? Those meetings made public I have no idea how to crash zoom meeting. Well Zoom is very. It's got. It's got a lot of security issues. They have said you should never do anything. That's you know super-sensitive on zoom which is. My sister was like I. Don't want to do therapy on zoom. Like nobody cares about your therapies. Nobody's GonNa go listen. Bitch about your kids don't worry about it. That's that's not what they're looking to hack. Big Time! Business meetings with stock market ramifications and stuff like that though you probably wouldn't put it on zoom. TMZ reports. Brittany was supposed to have her routine quarterly check in this week, but people joined in the virtual meeting and refuse to allow a confidential courtroom. There has been recent uptick fans protesting the conservative as part of the Free Brittany campaign. The thirty eight year old entered a conservative ship in two thousand eight after numerous breakdowns, which means her father and lawyer get legal control over all her financial and personal assets. Finally ACDC released Blah back in Blackley album that would change their career and their lives forty years ago, tomorrow, July twenty, fifth, nineteen, eighty, it was their seventh studio album and I was singer Brian Johnson, who replaced Bond Scott following his death from alcohol poisoning after a drinking binge five months earlier, February nineteenth nineteen eighty AC. Can you imagine that quick of a turnaround today I mean. ACDC had made a big dent in America with their previous album, Nineteen seventy-nine highway to hell, and some of the ideas for songs on black came together on that tour. Here's AMAS young and the early stages of songs that would make it onto back and black. Malcolm had a couple of ID's specially the back in black with the title track and I'd been fiddling around with little bits of the. You shook me, so you know there was a few of the ideas that we had in place, so it sort of started. The inspirational stayed especially back in black in Malcolm had these ritzy said he couldn't get out of his head, so he had him on type in e. played them to mean he said. What do you think I fought? Hey, you know the great. Right after Bon Scott's death, they did consider hanging up, but we're convinced not to by family and friends and. As we just said wasted no time in holding auditions Johnson, who used to front the band? Gordy one out and the band went into the studio in Nassau in the Bahamas in April and May with producer Mutt Lang, who produced highway to hell, though some of the musical ideas were born, while Bon Scott was still alive. The band opted for some fresh lyrics in the album's title. Track and cover were attribute to Bon Scott. That was our way of Saloon bunged sting. We didn't want to draw job a tragedy, so we've figured that was the best tribute we could do, so we made black as the mark of respect when somebody passes away, that was the idea of was a lot of people actually at the time when we first said he wanted. You know you can't do then. People Don, light that. Keeps a negative thing, but for us. It meant something and that's what we stuck by..

"Morning show. It's Randy Bam. The morning show Sean Collier joining us with some reviews of movies streaming currently on the worldwide Web John Good Morning. How are you? I'm alright. Yes, if you get tired of strange client base ball this weekend, there will always be. Yeah, you didn't like the aesthetic of last night's baseball debut. I enjoyed it and I'm going to be watching it. I found every attempt to make it feel normal. made it feel so much less normal like there's no level at which oh? There's a cardboard cutout of a baby behind mookie Betts. His head. That doesn't make it better. Right. Some of the crowd noise is a little weird, but I don't know when you have it on Canada in the background, which is how I had I watched the first couple of the nats in in the Yanks, and then I just started doing stuff and had it on, so it was nice to hear the crowd noise, and whatever sort of the ambient sound they were pumping through the broadcast. but I still think that what they should do. Just cut away to shots of games from the past with people eating in the stands so every time they got away from the people sitting in a Ballpark, having a hot dog. Either that or recruit the field of dreams, ghosts get the old ghost ball players. They can't. They don't have to worry about the virus. Well, one of the cool things that they did last night for the dodgers game was they had a cardboard cutout of brody Stevens a comic who? Passed away so technically. They kind of did have at least a cardboard ghost but you know I guess you can just pick whoever you want and make a cardboard cutout or give them money contribution, and they'll put you behind home plate. Like your marlins man. I mean if it can be anybody, let's get Freddie Jason Michael Myers and they're tried to unnerve the opposing batter. Will. Tell us what you got lined up for the weekend here. Speaking of a scary films, the rental is fundamentally scary movie about renting an AIRBNB which makes sense because if you've ever stayed in one the first moment you take your pants off, you think I, wonder if they're watching me right. They're probably not I, WANNA. Go on record as saying. I think very few AIRBNB owners are peeping toms, but it occurs to you at some point that you don't really have any way of knowing that right like you just WanNa say. If anyone's monitoring me right now. It's not going to be anything good. Just go about your business wherever you are. In the film to couples rent a fancy house for getaway weekend. They have an okay time until they discover. The camera in the shower sings escalate quickly from there. This is the first movie directed. By Dave Franco you know him. He's the Franko who people still want to have around. And it feels a lot of the time like you know. What an actor figuring out how to direct I. Mean This. This happens many times a year. Somebody moves behind the camera. This is like that. He's got some ideas. He has some things to offer that he's good at. He doesn't necessarily have all of the tools just yet. His cast Allison Brie his cast bails him out. The rental is probably worth watching. As you know a nice quick, little thriller and if nothing else a good reminder, you don't need to take another couple on your vacation. It seems like a good idea at first split the cost, but someone's going to be traveled grumpy. You'RE GONNA. Get annoyed with them, and if you get stopped by a murderer, you're giving them twice as many victims. That's no good..

If you were watching a game with fans I think it would make a big difference having to all the sudden fall in love with sport, and not being able to see them perform in front of their fans is a tough ask. Yeah I honestly like not get too deep into soccer, but I I do like watching European soccer I like watching the EPL awake watching some of the other leagues, and if you like watching those leagues, and then you try to watch molest, it is a big difference..

"Not understand why they need our peer not simply to know about it, theoretically, but why they would need it practically in their business. Why is that such an important thing for people to take to heart? I always look at this from two very important perspectives. I am first of all I look at it from the customer perspective. And Secondly, the business perspective. And and in both of these cases are a really compelling reasons to consider why RPA's is useful for you take the customer. I I'm a lean guy. So always we start with the customer. You talked to too many customs out there by the automation, and they're not then then fearful of automated from a company perspective because the things that they are demanding now from organizations is that real ease of doing business and the convenience of doing business, which often means running twenty four. Hours having quicker quicker responses to any of their queries, and these are all challenges for many organizations. How do you operate a twenty four seven business? How do you have provide this information of people's fingertips and the sheer manpower? If you to do it with heads is impossible is just not not a practical way to be able to achieve that. So so I think the first reason is the customers are demanding these types services, and the only way you're going to be able to deliver those services is if you find a new way of doing it. And I think Arpey is definitely one of the solutions that will help you to do that. I also think from a business perspective. There are many compelling reasons for thinking about our I started with with fishy. The example of the pensions business was was really was a transformation we were just trying to make business more efficient. But of course, on on top of that we improve the quality. So I think, you know, a second reason for considering from a business perspective is definitely that risk mitigation is by improving the quality of the the the transactions and improve the quality of the data in your systems, and consistency of the data within your systems. You are now able to mitigate some of the risks the want of had of poor data quality in the past the reason, I think the businesses often look at look it up here isn't just about officiency, but it's about growth, and I've got an example opening in wrong, but actually organizations simply can't grow any further without the need to become more efficient. Or to save costs. And and so our PA is a way to be able to achieve those cost savings all realize those growth opportunities or both together. I actually they're often quite tightly linked. But I think the final takeaway on this question for your listeners is definitely that. You've got to think about the if you're not doing this. There is a fairly good chance your competitors are so where is that going to put them in six months time compared to you? And so I think there is a little bit of a burning platform here to consider which is the in order for you to survive as a business. You've got to start looking at these technologies remembering the technology is just enabler to achieve your business outcomes for everyone who might be sitting there with the phrase fear of robots going through their mind right now, I suggest they replace it with fear of hitting control c followed by control v. Followed by control c followed by control v. Because of course. That's how we used to culpa in paste in copy and paste information from one part of a document to the other and any way that that can become a thing of the past. I'm all for it will be talking a little more about your book, digital workforce in a minute or two that launched recently. But I just thought we take the opportunity to remind our listeners around the world. That's they are listening to the go beyond disruption podcast. I'm Kyle Hanan. I'm talking to robotic process automation expert and six sigma black belt, rob king. Now like this episode Ovar episodes recorded by different members of our teams from offices around the world summit studios in conference rooms meeting cubicles office, libraries, cert- means that while the voices and the sound quality may vary.

"Robotics, robotic process automation. Where does that all come from? Why are they so many ways of talking about what many people may just be one? And the same thing is it clear that up for us. Gosh, there's no simple arts to that. And is a great question because the the whole vocabulary on this is very inconsistent and very confusing for people. So when people talk about robotics, it's the prising how many people really do imagine an industrial robot sitting at a desk in an office. And it clearly isn't that robotic process automation, despite the name is really just a piece of software the emulates the sympa the people too. So so if you matching for a second, you know, you sitting office, and you've got tasked to do, and it's the type of tasks that you do have absolutely every day. You're you're entering data from one system into another you copying files. You're moving data around using the graphical user interface. On the screen in front of you the genius of RPI is that it uses exactly that same interface. So robotic process automation, automates, the simple tasks that you do every day is able to emulate your activities. The other thing about robotic process automation is that it's it's as much about integration as it is about automating because in the example of just given a entering data from one system into another you are really sort of using human to integrate two separate systems that are working smoothly together. And it happens all the time because data comes in via emails. It comes involve files. It comes envir- vice spreadsheets, and it's never quite in the format that you needed to be. So you using a person to do that day to work, and you know, for people who've seen the use of exile macro in the past where data's being manipulated within a spreadsheet that really is the precursor to to Ophir where you could do those repetitive. Data manipur. Elation tasks within within a spreadsheets. And and it was like an invisible person there, you could sit and watch all the sows moving around in the formats changing in the values moving into the right places within a spreadsheet robotic process automation is exactly the same as that. But now doesn't just operate within a spreadsheet it operates within just about any of the applications that you currently use on your desktop because it uses exactly the same graphical user interface. Whether it's the browser whether's windows application, the that you would use the vocabulary is really inconsistent, and is really strange, but but I guess on the positive robotic process automation as a phrase has really captured people's imaginations, I mean, it may have may have created a few misconceptions. But it's only really since the word found its way into common vocabulary that the people have started to sort of sit up and notice what is really being capable of because it has been around for of I've been involved for over five years and. And many of the companies have been operating for nearly ten years. So it's not it's not something entirely new. What is new I think is the capabilities of matured, the the number of organizations that that suitable for has really increased a what possible is now quite incredible. And I think in from that point of view Arpey as definitely arrived if we're talking about clearing up misconceptions of what our PA is. And who it may actually be Ford's less about transformers and much more about transformation, especially of business processes? Yes. I think business transformation is really about of understanding how you want your business to operate in the future, and from that point of view. I think RPI is a fantastic in Abela by itself. It is just a tool, and I think you have to put it all together with where you're trying to get to this. What does your new organization looked like what do your customers actually need an only when you put all of those things? Get and use the right tools. Will you chief the transformation you're looking for? And every time you change a process. You also see a change in the business, and that can sometimes be a good disruption a necessary change. But also, there's the law of unintended consequences. And there's no consequence it can be more fatal than a failure to plan. I mean, we know that disruption and change is nothing new, and let's look back at it over the last two and a half decades at you've been in this world of seeing tech transform business, especially within the context of the accounting and the finance profession. Give us some idea of one significant disruption that you saw in the profession. How did it transform the organizations that you were working with having been involved in technology? The in the last twenty five years, you can imagine I've seen so many quite amazing technological changes. So so I think you know, the foundations of those changes are things like a smartphone and the introduction. Of cloud because without those two things those two things alone. I think are probably the the most significant through looking back over the last couple of decades because it really has changed how organizations and customers consume that the different services. I think the the thing that that is probably now the most significant over shorter period over the last twelve months has been how machine learning has finally sort of come to the fore my degree back in the eighties. It was partly a particular machine learning and managed to prove as part of my thesis. That's the, you know, just the technology just wouldn't work. And and I think, you know, a lot of the the advances in machine learning hasn't particularly being massive advances. The theory has been there for a long time. The technology has finally caught up. A now everything is advancing phenomenal rights. I do think machine learning. Ng is the one that is really coming to the fore, and and the abilities for applications not to be programmed as they have in the past, but to learn, and that's that's an incredible credibly different view in terms of how how grew them some programs work in the future. And I think you know, we're seeing this year already how that is being commoditised. So this isn't again, this isn't something that is just for people who've got brains the size of a planet because I certainly haven't but the package doping little services that you can buy off the shelf. We'll see a lot more of that in the coming sort of twelve and eighteen months, and that's the next most significant change that will see coming. So those are some of the changes you've seen and you've certainly seen the commoditisation of. Hey, I and we're talking about how that links to our PA. In fact, we talk about how our is everyone. That's the title of the podcast. So let me sneak this in on you. Let's bring this little closer to home. Hounded you rob king? I realize that it was for you. How did you first get involved with RPI? I came across our back in two thousand twelve a product to the time called open span and was quite mature for the the types of capability that we sort of see today and my role at the time was lean transformation does six sigma through and through and the number of different transformation programs and the thing about lean transformation. Is you're always looking how to do things more efficiently. And you're always looking to find ways that you can automate processes, so you can imagine the the the advent of our PA and looking for opportunities to automate was like a marriage made in heaven. And so in two thousand thirteen I put in place, the very first RPI solution that I that I seen which was it was for pensions business at the time and unto to describe the situation they went through a new piece of pensions. Business would come in on an application form paper, of course, and the details would be entered into the the court system. So some so that the type those details in, but it didn't stop there within six other systems into which some of that data needed to be entered. And and some of the data from one system would be calculated and then entered into another system. So you really were using the human as a robot to enter all of this information across seven different applications is problem. This called the swivel chair problem whereby you look one way. And you copy the data you look the other way and you pace the data somewhere else. And that's exactly what they were doing. And and this wasn't you know, one or two fields data. This was this was fifty sixty key data elements that are needed in order to process a pension. Now. The other thing about pensions business is that if you make a mistake in any of that cheap liquor king, and you don't spot straight away. And it takes maybe a year goes by before you dente for the problem. It can take a lot of effort to unwind what happened and then recalculate the the pension, and so actually, you know, the challenge here was the importance of data quality and the the amount of time and effort that was spent on on rework an off gave us a solution that not only improved efficiency of the process because we were able to get all of that data now into the seven systems in half of the time. It was originally taking someone to key to all in manually, but most significantly. As we we improve the quality of the data. So so we guaranteed the consistency of data across all of those services Dems and so- eliminated all of that rework, and that was the most significant impact and the other thing, I think that you know, sure, we'll come to this is sometimes the fear of fear of RPI. This was an example of people hated this these job, and they really did love the soft the support and the help that they were getting in terms of the sort of being able to do the parts of the job that were more interesting, the value, add the real the real the real thinking about it or discussing things with the customer, a not the mundane just keying same information across several different systems. I would occasionally, of course, generated the swivel chair problem. That's definitely a hashtag to watch. I'm sure talking of watching things here at the association, we are focusing on our this month. This is being RIC. Accorded in November twenty eighteen and there's a lot of information resource in lot of focus in the work that the association is doing around the world, which is trying to look at our PA and ways it can be used by the profession in as many ways as possible in here. The podcast always interested in looking at that pivot point that interaction between the technology and the people that again to be using it in that businesses. And this is why are we paying so much attention to our period, especially this month? And the reason we're talking to you is we're trying to help people understand why are PA isn't just for particular teams or particular specialists, or as we discovering people on swivel chairs it is. It is actually everyone in a business that relies on data and the numbers that make up the bulk of our day today in the profession working with numbers working with that data. So obviously, this is. It is clear to you. You've written a book about it. But for someone who might not

"Welcome to beyond disruption for you'll learn. How emerging tech is changing the world of accounting business and finance our guest experts break down the latest news and everything from flock chain robotics, artificial intelligence to human intelligence. Tune in to find out how you can stay ahead of the curve. Hello, thanks downloading this episode of the go beyond disruption podcast from our UK office in the heart of the financial district and the city of London. I'm Kyle Hannan in this episode. Why are is for everyone will be clearing up. Many of the misconceptions of who are PA is actually four. We'll be talking about the strategies the processes and the technologies that fall under the general umbrella of robotic process automation. Our expert guest will give us the inside track. And how the old access Barry's at tumbling, and how is now more accessible and applicable to finance and accounting professionals everywhere this week by introductions and referrals all the way from the east coast of the USA, rob king. Hello, rob. I did mention the US. But it's not where you are. Right now. Is it a where are you speaking to us from today? Thanks call. Yes. I'm I'm from southeast England. In very glum Kent at the moment. Yes. For those people who may be going into spring where they are. Because of course, we listened to over one hundred countries with global audience wherever you happen to be listening to us now. Welcome to the podcast. And I think it's a good opportunity for us to start with where rob is right now. Not geographically, but in his profession, I'll start with what perhaps some of our community may already know about your up, you're certified six sigma master black belts. You've over twenty five years experience in helping organizations to live operational efficiencies. And you deliver this by blending the introduction of new technology along with a really factor mix of innovation and lean transformation. So what does that all mean? Well, I'm sure you're about to tell us. But if people haven't heard of you paps, though, finding more easily so your own company which is called wizard innovation, but actually spelt w Zad a d. So I think we've cleared that up. What do I left out, rob? Yes. Yes. So within avation is my company we've been operating for few years now. And of course, these no I n team, and hence that's where to use it. A are the came from even though we pronounce his as wizard focuses helping organizations to get started with innovation change and impotence killer. You know, Oppy RPI something that's that. I've been involved in now for over five years. And I think one thing that sort of sums of my whole career is definitely definitely love variety. So despite the fact that predominantly consulting and helping organizations that way also mice to find the time to write a book, which I'm sure compared to little later on of all about how you introduce lean and six sigma, and particularly how that interacts with robotic process automation. Because actually, it's the combination of all those things the makes a successful digital workforce. And. Hence that was why the shows that to be the title of the book of also throughout my career really enjoyed education and helping with education and I've been lean six sigma trainer in the past. And have also done work for the academy in terms of how do you introduce sort of Oppy into your organization with training courses there, and I'm going to be doing some future work with them in in two thousand nineteen and I'm so really looking forward to to be able to do much more of that on the education side. And it's all about the practice though. And I think one of the things that I'm particularly keen on is how you can educate people to learn from what was being successful. But also getting my hands dirty and really sort of getting involved in in the whole delivery life cycle. So never sure things to do. Always go more things I should have on the go. So what is going on? Exactly, why do people referred to are as. Robotics,
