He practiced every lecture that he gave at least once, in the real circumstance, so that he could be aware of the timing of the lecture, and so he would not be tempted to speak quickly in order to fit in more material. Instead, he would cut out large chunks of the lecture.

He used several methods of teaching. Mosteller said that a lecture should always be ?specific, general, specific?, and gave this advice: Begin with a particular example which piques student interest, continue with a general point, and end with a particular example illustrating the general point.

Mosteller and David Wallace studied the historical problem of who wrote each of the disputed Federalist papers, Madison or Hamilton. In 1964 this paper was featured in Time magazine. The Federalist Papers study was conducted in order to demonstrate the power of Bayesian inference and required a great deal of computational power for that time.

Authorship: Next, organizations create cross-functional teams of MLMs, who author change and innovation plans that turn executives? visions into concrete steps. MLMs can also take the initiative here, forming their own teams with other MLMs. In turn, the MLMs need to involve the individual contributors to co-author the plans with them. Authorship creates ownership and commitment, and ultimately leads to creative and impactful solutions.

In the successful initiatives, MLMs were empowered in three ways. First, they were able to see how the initiatives aligned with their own personal and professional aspirations. Second, through cross-boundary and cross-functional teams, MLMs were typically the major authors of the initiatives. Finally, MLMs ensured the direct participation and authorship of individual contributors.

Aside from the role of the senior executives, the most important determinant of success was the role of MLMs. In the successful initiatives, MLMs served as levers of change, influencing those above and below them in the corporate hierarchy.

I recently conducted a study of 56 randomly selected companies involved in major change and innovation efforts in the high-tech, retail, pharmaceutical, banking, automotive, insurance, energy, non-profit, and health care industries. Nearly 68% of these large-scale change and innovative efforts failed.

Sometimes the sum of the squared deviations is divided by one less than the number of observations. This arbitrary adjustment is intended to make allowance for any sampling error.

This approach, of creating effect sizes, is growing in popularity as a way of assessing the substantive importance of differences between scores, as opposed to assessing the less useful significance of differences (Gorard 2004).

Other indices, especially those like the Gini coefficient that involve the squaring of deviations, lead to no such easily interpreted value. The similarity between S and MD is striking. MD is what you would devise in adapting S to work with real numbers rather than the frequencies of categories. MD is also, like S, more tolerant of problems within the data, and has an easier to understand meaning than its potential rivals.

S has an easy to comprehend meaning. It represents the proportion of the disadvantaged group (children in poverty) who would have to exchange organisational units (schools) for there to be a completely even distribution of disadvantaged individuals.

Another advantage in using MD lies in its links and similarities to a range of other simple analytical techniques, a few of which are described here. In 1997, Gorard proposed the use of the segregation index (S) for summarising the unevenness in the distribution of individuals between organisational units, such as the clustering of children from families in poverty in specific schools8. The index is related to several of the more established indices, such as the dissimilarity index. However, S has two major advantages over both of these. It is strongly composition-invariant, meaning that it is affected only by unevenness of distribution and not at all by scaled changes in the magnitude of the figures involved (Gorard and Taylor 2002).

Statistical techniques based on the standard deviation give misleading answers in these cases, and so concepts of variability, such as the absolute mean deviation, are more appropriate measures of variability for these distributions (Fama 1963, p.491).
