Amazon CEO's Empathetic Return-to-Office Memo is "Leadership Case Study in How to Manage Uncertainty," Fortune 500 Consultants Say

In a recent company-wide memo, Amazon CEO Andy Jassy nimbly explained why Amazon's leadership has taken so long to decide when employees should return to the office. He declared that decisions on who would return to the office and how often would be made by team leaders. Communications consultants who work with Fortune 500 companies said Jassy's memo was a case study in transparency and navigating uncharted territory.

Suzanne Bates, the author of "Speak Like a CEO" and a managing director and partner at the leadership consultancy BTS, called the memo a blueprint for other companies seeking to mitigate a crisis. Jassy began the memo by acknowledging the back-and-forth and empathizing with employees who are coping with paralyzing uncertainty. This is an effort to reestablish trust, Bates said. "We've never been through something like this before, and hope we never encounter it again," Jassy wrote in the 850-word memo. "When are we really going back to the office, what will that really be like, how will I allocate my time between the office and home, how will others do it?" When employees "see a question that looks like a question they've been asking, they know that the CEO is hearing the voice of the employee," Bates said. "They think, 'The CEO is attuned to what we're talking about.'" (https://www.businessinsider.com/andy-jassy-memo-return-to-office-leadership-case-study-2021-10)

Security AI is the Next Big Thing

Given the complexity of modern attacks, "there is absolutely no way that human defenders can keep up with it, so we must have artificial intelligence capabilities in the technologies and solutions we're providing," said Ann Johnson, corporate vice president of security, compliance, and identity at Microsoft.

Eight Ways Quantum Computing is Going to Change the World

Quantum computers are expected to eventually usher in a whole new era of computing - one in which the hardware is no longer a constraint when resolving complex problems, meaning that some calculations that would take years or even centuries for classical systems to complete could be achieved in minutes. ZDNet provides eight quantum use cases that leading organizations are exploring now, which could radically change the game across entire industries. In summary, they are: 1.) Discovering new drugs. 2.) Creating better batteries. 3.) Predicting the weather. 4.) Picking stocks. 5.) Processing language. 6.) Helping to solve the traveling salesman problem. 7.) Reducing congestion. 8.) Protecting sensitive data. (https://www.zdnet.com/article/quantum-computers-eight-ways-quantum-computing-is-going-to-change-the-world/)

Wearable Patches Could Boost the VR Experience

VR headsets are currently able to simulate realistic environments to trick your brain into thinking it's actually there. But researchers at the University of Chicago are going a step further by simulating physical sensations using chemicals applied to your skin - dubbed chemical haptics. The results are fascinating and could provide a way to make VR even more immersive. It involves triggering various stimuli on the skin using different chemicals delivered using a special system of wearable patches and pumps that can be worn anywhere on the body.

Cars Are on the Road to Becoming Digital Devices

Ford Motor Co's Doug Field, a former Tesla and Apple Inc. executive, said, "The disruption in the auto industry, driven by software, autonomy and electrification, is going to be as big as anything that's happened in the last century."

For Mobile Game Developers, Everything Is Set to Change on December 9

A U.S. District Court in California issued an order that denies Apple's motion to delay the injunction resulting from the Epic Games vs. Apple Inc. lawsuit. That injunction, which is currently set to go into effect on December 9, states that Apple must allow game developers to provide access to third-party payment options from within the App Store. Apple has indicated that they wish to appeal that injunction, and wanted to delay it altogether pending that appeal, but that motion has been denied. Apple also requested additional time to file said appeal, but that request was also denied. What is particularly striking in this order is the language used by the court to clarify the issue. While Apple wants in-app purchases to remain available only through the App Store, this court disagrees and sides with the users. "The fact remains: it should be their choice. Consumer information, transparency, and consumer choice is in the interest of the public." (https://xsolla.com/blog/for-mobile-game-developers-everything-is-set-to-change-on-december-9)
