Guest Blog Post at The Decision Factor Goes Live

Categories: Blogging Dave Rathbun @ 11:26 am

My first guest blog post was published last week, complete with an error on my part that was immediately called out in the comments. :oops: I was writing about Captain James T. Kirk and the Star Trek series. Somehow, with “James” on my mind, I credited a “James Roddenberry” as the creator of the series! Obviously that was wrong, it was Gene Roddenberry.

The post was updated, and I addressed my error by responded to the comment…

Part one, titled, “Business Intelligence Lessons From Star Trek” is out now. Part two will be out in a week or two. Please check it out!

I’m willing to bet that over half of my blog readers know what the “T” stands for in James T. Kirk… before googling the result. ;)

    “T” is easy. If you know Star Trek.

    A few years ago TDWI released a slide deck about Benchmarking Your BI Maturity. The had a slide for BICC Competency Centers that showed our Kirk, Spock, McCoy, and Scotty all represented the various skills needed. I still have a print of that slide posted in my cubicle.

    That would be fun to see! I have submitted part two of my post, it has been through edits and will be published at some point in the next few weeks. I don’t remember the exact date. In it I get to talk about Spock and chess a little bit. :)
