Harga Telur

leave a comment »

Melihat harga secara jernih. Belakangan ini saya menyadari bahwa beberapa item barang itu sebenarnya sangat murah. Makanan misalnya, orang bisa makan enak dengan 12 ribu rupiah (nasi goreng, bubur, nasi kuning), bahkan bakso yang datang ke depan rumah dijual dengan harga 15 ribu rupiah.

Terakhir, saya membeli telur di warung. Harga telur satu kilo (16 butir) 25 ribu rupiah, sekitar 1500 rupiah/butir. Di alfamart harga telur 6 butir 18 ribu rupiah, sekitar 3000 rupiah/butir.

Masalah mahal dan murah itu relatif. Murah (harga) menurut saya merujuk pada skill (kepuasan) untuk menemukan sourcing yang jauh lebih efisien (diinginkan).

Power and Set-up-to-fail syndrome

“Those who seek power are not worthy of that power” Plato in Republic
“Those who want power do not deserve it. And those who deserve power do not want it” J.K. Rowling
“The best people to have power are the ones who don’t want it” Kit Harington

Setting up to fail is a phrase denoting a no-win situation designed in such a way that the person in the situation cannot succeed at the task which they have been assigned. It is considered a form of workplace bullying.

Beberapa hari yang lalu, saat wawancara, saya mendapatkan pertanyaan sederhana:

1.Apa yang kamu lakukan jika banyak karyawan datang terlambat kerja?
Jawaban yang diberikan ternyata beragam, pada umumnya “better management is better/more control”.
– Potong gaji (punishment), beri penghargaan (reward) bagi yang datang tepat waktu. (management/rules/process) (zero cost, increase stress), hire consultant 50 juta (capex)
– Bikin sistem absensi (technology). Misalnya biayanya 100 juta (capex)
– Rekrut satpam untuk mengawasi karyawan, rekrut petugas resepsionis (management/resources). Misalnya gajinya 10 juta per bulan (opex)

Padahal dari pertanyaan ini ada beberapa hal besar yang tidak semuanya terjawab misalnya, mengapa karyawan terlambat. Apakah karena mereka tidak termotivasi? kalau tidak termotivasi, maka rekomendasi apapun tidak akan efektif.

2.Apa yang kamu lakukan jika terlibat dalam proyek besar dan kompleks?
Jawabannya juga beragam:
– More control: Mengadakan meeting setiap hari, melakukan update status setiap jam (management/micro). (zero cost, increase stress)
– Memberikan training work/life balance. (low budget – vs big budget) misal biaya 5 juta

3.Jika kamu seorang guru, apa yang akan kamu lakukan jika pinsil sering hilang?
(karena pinsil itu kecil, harganya murah, semua orang membutuhkan, akibatnya sering hilang)
– Mewajibkan pinsil diberi nama (less control: roles-responsibility/ownership)
– Membuat fungsi polisi pinsil, ada orang yang mencatat pinsil beredar (more control/supervision)
– Siswa tidak diwajibkan membawa pinsil, pinsil adalah inventaris kelas (no control)

The first step of the “project management” aka delivery is opportunity identification. The first step of the “business development” aka sales is opportunity identification. The second step is decision making, which can be through analyze (plus/minus), evaluation (scoring), filtering (sorting).

Practical Management – Choose your word

leave a comment »

Basically there are only two type of relationship in the management (this will not apply in relationship in the business): authoritarian and egalitarian. Authoritarian focus on separation of power while egalitarian focus on equality. Authoritarian usually result of incompetency and less about ego (narcistic).

The incompetency of the leader will create a layered of power (vertically), separate the power (horizontally). Vertical distribution to ensure the backup as protection -if wrong decision made or continuity -if its resources fall. Horizontal distribution to ensure no betrayal on its leadership. Competent leader will do the work.

Authoritarian leader will exercise its power on many ocassion, while egalitarian leader will not unless its necessarily. Authoritarian leader exercise power as it is the only way power sustain. Authoritarian leader might interpret power as influence to other (material, respect, actualization -in order) while egalitarian leader interpret power as influence to self (knowledge, health, satisfaction -in order)

Practical Leadership
Leadership usually practiced by ignorance. Most of the time, leader think that ignorance is effective. Ignorance can be seen as delegation game. However the danger of ignorance is that its only works for short time. In the longer time, ignorance will not be effective.

Cluster A: Authoritarian (Do what I say, ignoring facts)

Case 1: “Pokoknya, nanti pekerjaan di luar kota itu harus selesai ya”
Case 2: “Pokoknya, nanti dikoordinasikan dengan yang lain pembagian tugasnya ya”
Case 3: “Pokoknya, nanti harus selesai ya”
Case 4: “Pokoknya, nanti siang langsung penugasan ya”

*Alternative keyword: Pokoknya, Minta tolong ya, Kalau bisa
**Extra keyword: X yang minta ini (pimpinan, client)

Cluster B: Manipulator (Leave no choice, eliminate option, blaming & guilty game)

Case 1: “Bagaimana lagi, cuman kamu yang bisa (competency trap)”
Case 2: “Bagaimana lagi, kita ga ada orang lagi (resource blamming)”
Case 3: “Bagaimana lagi, ini tugas kita (responsibility victimize)”
Case 4: “Bagaimana lagi, ini bos besar yang minta (“worship/leader blamming”)

Cluster C: Egomania (Construct illusion, create cult) aka Cluster A2

Case 1: “Menurut saya, ini bisa diselesaikan dengan koordinasi” (incompetence level 1)
Case 2: “Menurut saya, ini bisa diselesaikan dengan metode X” (incompetence level 2)
Case 3: “Menurut pengalaman saya, ini bisa diselesaikan (meski tidak relevan) dengan pengalaman X (irrelevant solution) (incompetence level 3)

However, this practical management, is not only from the perspective of the leader, but also applies from the perspective of the team (aka follower)

Cluster A: Authoritarian (Yes Man, ignoring facts)

Case 1: “Sudah pak, ini sudah semua (sudah sesuai, sudah dikerjakan, sudah dikoordinasikan)”
Case 2: “Belum pak, ini belum cukup, ini belum benar (negative case 1)

*Alternative keyword: Sudah, bisa

Cluster B: Manipulator (Blaming game)
Case 1: “Ini salah client, ini clientnya ga mengerti” (blaming client)
Case 2: “Ini sudah out of scope” (blaming scope)
Case 3: “Ini teamnya ga optimal” (blaming resources)

The practical management also can be seen from the more detailed leader vs team relationship:

  • Authoritarian culture tend to believe on hierarchical and strong chain of command. Egalitarian culture tend to believe on flat organization
  • Authoritarian culture tend to believe on collective decision process. Egalitarian tend to believe on individual decision process.

The practical business relationship can be seen from vendor vs client relationship. Both authoritarian and egalitarian can be applied in all the type of business relationship.

  • Conservative tend to believe on the strictness business process
  • Flexibel tend to believe on the speedness business process, (most of the bank rely on speed)

The problem of the organization

leave a comment »

Indoctrination (the process of teaching a person or group to accept a set of beliefs uncritically)

1.Cult
The organization maturity can be seen on how the leader is served. In many cases, the leader is just like a cult leader than can not be argued

2.Spread fear
Whether the format can not be changed or time attendance

3.Vulnerability of subject
No sense of respecting privacy, right or individualism

Personality cults of political leaders can be conceptualized in one of two different ways: as propaganda that portrays the leader positively, or as rituals of leader worship.

Data – Roadmap

leave a comment »

I start to realize the biggest problem in the Data.

1.There is no perfect framework (DMBOK vs DCAM is no sufficient)

https://datacrossroads.nl/2018/12/02/data-management-metamodels-damadmbok2-dcam/

2.Multiperspective of Data

https://justinhay.wordpress.com/2011/05/21/edw-reference-architecture-data-integration-layer/

3.Different understanding of data

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4279089/what-is-the-difference-between-logical-data-model-and-conceptual-data-model

What is the difference between logical data model and conceptual data model?  - Stack Overflow

Master Data: “A consistent and uniform set of identifiers and attributes that describe the core entities of the enterprise and are used across multiple business processes.” Gartner Data & Analytics Summit

MDM: “that describe the core entities of the enterprise” – Master data exists and should be identified within multiple data domains:
• Party – This data domain can extend to an individual customer in B2C or a business (even hierarchy) in a B2B context. In other contexts, this domain can be extended to Patients, Providers, Citizens, Suspects or any other domain that has similar attributes like name, contact information, and, most importantly, survivorship rules when one or more records are resolved into a single record that represents the truth of that entity. It can also extend to suppliers, although that can arguably be considered a distinctly different data domain, and many MDM vendors will treat it as such.

• Product – A critical data domain for commerce, catalog, and compliance efforts, product master data differs from customer data primarily in that while the volume of records may be lower, the complexity is higher, hierarchies are much more important, and collaborative authorship is key.
• Asset – This domain can extend to both physical assets, such as replacement parts in a warehouse, physical buildings, such as hotels or warehouses, or beds within a hospital, for example, or digital assets, such as images, videos or reviews that relate to another data entity like a product or a location.
• Location – A more nebulous, but no less critical data domain, location master data will usually be a geographical location that corresponds to another data domain (like an address for a retail store or location of an off-shore drilling site) or some other location reference that can be tracked, such as delivery trucks or IP addresses.

Data Domain: Big level block that used to define master data

Data – Maturity Ladder

https://datacrossroads.nl/2018/12/02/data-management-metamodels-damadmbok2-dcam/

Data warehouse sources are often operational or transactional systems. In these types of systems, the master data comes along for the ride when an event or transaction occurs, such as a change in product inventory levels or a customer making a purchase. MDM often incorporates all possible master data sources, including not only data associated with or generated by internal systems, but also external data.

Another major difference between MDM and data warehousing is that MDM focuses on providing the enterprise with a single, unified and consistent view of these key business entities by creating and maintaining their best data representations. While a data warehouse often maintains a full history of the changes to these entities, its current view represents the last update. Plus, each data warehouse update is applied to the current view without a re-assessment of how previous updates might change the best representation.

Matching and consolidating related records doesn’t typically occur in data warehousing. MDM, on the other hand, standardizes, matches and consolidates common data elements across all possible data sources for a subject area to iteratively refresh and maintain its best master record.

Random – Power and Money

leave a comment »

When you go to business school, you will learn how to accumulate money. However, when you go to law school (politics), you will learn how to accumulate power by doing quite opposite which is to distribute power.

Money is the best medium exchange as money is nonliving things. Power on the other hand is a living things -directly connected to the people. The relation of money and time is straight forward (time is money, money has present value, the value of money depend on price level). The relation of power and time is uncertain.

Money is not only currency, time is.
Honesty is the best currency.
Power is the capacity to influence others
Animal Farm, power corrupts far more than money or material goods
