I am in Halifax (Nova Scotia) for the World Productivity Congress (being held in partnership with the Big Data Conference). This gives me 2 (well, at least 2) opportunities.
Firstly, I can meet up with old friends and contacts and find out about developments in the field of productivity across the globe. This is always interesting and useful.
Secondly, I get to hear about developments in Big Data and reflect upon how they impact on productivity.
I have my own ideas, of course, but essentially I am here to learn.
After all, if we stop learning we might as well give up.
