A new story?
Often organizations are different from each other not only because their business type differs, but also because they tend to follow different paths in their development and in the way people are recruited, integrated, and motivated.
The so-called human resources departments are often responsible for the dynamism of development skills impressed in an organization and not always what seems to me to be a good way, that is, seeking to create interdisciplinary teams, is achieved.
The strength of old traditions continue to cause an excess of traditionally analytical profiles.
So who should be the new data readers?
“We need an inclusion in this dialogue from artists, from poets, from writers — from people who can bring a human element into this discussion. Because I believe that this world of data is going to be transformative to us.”We need an inclusion in this dialogue, artists, poets, writers — people who can bring a human element to this discussion. Because I believe that this world will be data transformer for us. Bringing the human elements to the data, I think we can get them to tremendous places.”
If we are not seeking this inclusion we risk witnessing the return of “super specialists”, or people who are in our organization to solve problems relating to their discipline but are unable to collaborate to solve the problems of other disciplines.

Editor’s note: This post was written a few months ago, but I think Jose Baldaia suggests something that we have not taken into consideration enough. In the era of Big Data, isn’t it more vital than ever to listen to the voices of the artists, poets and other creative people in our midst — including all of our employees, and customers or constituents — about how we will analyze and use the ubiquitous data that is all around us now? The more varied the voices, the better, and we ought to think about this diversity and inclusiveness in our hiring practices, as we move forward to the future.
