Leadership is not the same as domination, and Washington’s role in helping stabilize the world and underwrite its continued progress may be even more important now than ever. Americans and others may not notice the security and prosperity that the liberal order provides until they are gone—but by then, it may be too late.

IN05 – Haass, Richard N. WORLD ORDER 2.0 (Foreign Affairs, January/February 2017, 10 pages) 세계 질서2.0 - Click here for available text on the Internet

Globalization is here to stay, and the inadequacies of the traditional approach to order, based on sovereignty alone, will only become more obvious over time. Moving toward a new sort of order that incorporates sovereign obligation is the best way to deal with the problem, but it will take time, talk, and effort.

Based on the Korean government reform objectives, this publication discusses how to strengthen evidence-based policymaking in the Korean public administration and, more generally, how to improve public service delivery and results for more inclusive growth.


EC03 – Winston, Andrew. 9 SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS STORIES THAT SHAPED 2016 (Harvard Business Review, December 20, 2016, various pages) 지속가능한 비즈니스 분야에서 찾아본 2016년의 대표적 아홉가지 사건들 - Click here for available text on the Internet
Every year, I find big themes or specific company stories that I feel are impressive, important, or indicative of where the world is going. In 2016, two dwarf the rest: the election of Donald Trump and significant action on climate change. The context for sustainable business in 2017 may center on the competition between these two stories; that is, how will Trump and his team impact or impede progress on climate and other sustainability issues? So let’s focus on these two first, and then run quickly through seven other interesting stories.


EC04 – Nieto-Rodriguez, Antonio. HOW TO PRIORITIZE YOUR COMPANY’S PROJECTS (Harvard Business Review, December 13, 2016, various pages) 기업프로젝트 우선순위 선정전략  - Click here for available text on the Internet
Every organization needs what I call a “hierarchy of purpose.” Without one, it is almost impossible to prioritize effectively. Prioritization at a strategic and operational level is often the difference between success and failure. But many organizations do it badly.

US01 Doherty, Carroll. OBAMA LEAVES OFFICE ON HIGH NOTE, BUT PUBLIC HAS MIXED VIEWS OF ACCOMPLISHMENTS (Pew Research Center, December 14, 2016, 32 pages) 오바마 미국 대통령의 업적에 대해 높이 평가하지만 대중들은 엇갈린 견해를 가지고 있다 Click here for available text on the Internet

With just a few weeks left in Barack Obama’s presidency, Americans’ early judgments of his place in history are more positive than negative. Obama is poised to leave office on a high note: Current assessments of both the president and the first lady are among the most favorable since they arrived in the White House.

US02 Deruy, Emily. COLLEGES REALLY NEED TO RETHINK THE CAREER ADVICE THEY DELIVER (The Atlantic, December 15, 2016, 8 pages) 대학은 학생에게 제공하는 직업에 관한 조언에 대해 신중을 기하여 재고해야 한다 Click here for available text on the Internet
Colleges and universities are spending too much time admitting students and not enough time on the exit process after the last finals are handed in and the graduation caps tossed. And as more students who see college as a step toward upward economic mobility pursue higher education, the risk that young people will be left flailing in an economy where post-secondary education is more critical than ever stands to grow.


US03 Schank, Hana. WHAT HAPPENS TO WOMEN'S AMBITIONS IN THE YEARS AFTER COLLEGE (The Atlantic, December 19, 2016, 10 pages) 시대변화에 따른 여성의 진로 Click here for available text on the Internet
Shortly after I turned 40 I was offered a fantastic job that I didn’t take. It had all the hallmarks of the kind of job I should take, and wanted to take, but it would have also meant a dramatic change in lifestyle. For the last 15 years I’d been a freelancer and then a small-business owner. I worked from home, which meant I could be around for my two young children.


US04 Clark, Dorie. DON’T SET TOO MANY GOALS FOR YOURSELF (Harvard Business Review, December 16, 2016, 5 pages) 이룰 있는 만큼의 목표를 세워라 Click here for available text on the Internet
We work in a fast-moving era where we’re overloaded with information and must prioritize and focus in order to succeed. That’s certainly the case for today’s corporations. But it’s also true for us as individuals. In order to accomplish our most meaningful goals, we need to fight back against two dangerous impulses: hewing too closely to a fixed plan and attempting to do too much at once.

EN01 – Erskine, Alistair R.; Karunakaran, Bipin; Slotkin, Jonathan R.; Feinberg, David T. HOW GEISINGER HEALTH SYSTEM USES BIG DATA TO SAVE LIVES (Harvard Business Review, December 15, 2016, various pages) 빅데이터를 활용한 가이징거 (Geisinger) 보건시스템의 선구적 의료서비스 - Click here for available text on the Internet

In 1996 Geisinger was one of the earliest adopters of a full-featured Electronic Health Record (EHR). Since then, clinicians have been dutifully entering patient information and using the EHR to support care.  But pulling meaningful data aggregated from many sources back out of EHRs has historically been vexingly complex. The potential insight from these data are limited in practice by the shortcomings of traditional data repositories.


EN02 – Chamorro-Premuzic, Tomas; Ahmetoglu, Gorkan. THE PROS AND CONS OF ROBOT MANAGERS (Harvard Business Review, December 12, 2016, various pages) 로봇을 활용한 관리자동화에 대한 찬반논의 - Click here for available text on the Internet
How would you feel working for a robot? Although the idea may sound far-fetched, not least because the automation of jobs is usually discussed vis-à-vis unskilled labor rather than management-level positions, it is actually more feasible than most people think. Consider some of the main tasks of managers: e.g., using data to evaluate problems, making better decisions than the team, monitoring team members’ performance, setting relevant goals, and providing accurate feedback.

Observations in 2016 showed a continuation of long-term Arctic warming trends which reveals the interdependency of physical and biological Arctic systems, contributing to a growing recognition that the Arctic is an integral part of the globe, and increasing the need for comprehensive communication of Arctic change to diverse user audiences.

EN05Ray, Tiernan. INNOVATING IN AUDIO WITHOUT CHIPS OR MILLENNIALS (Barron‘s, November 19, 2016, various pages) 반도체칩이나 밀레니얼세대가 없이도 가능한 오디오분야의 혁신사례: 미국 텍토닉오디오랩 - Click here for available text on the Internet

In a world obsessed with the latest smartphone apps, every now and then a real innovation pops up out of nowhere that is instantly dazzling. Such is the case of Tectonic Audio Labs, a 20-person startup located in a strip mall in the small town of Woodinville, Wash., just north of Microsoft’s Redmond campus. The company’s central innovation goes by the daunting name of “resonant-mode audio.” It produces beautiful sound, the kind that can fill a room, not just your iPhone earbuds.

AR01 Eschner, Kat. WHY DO WE LOVE PERIOD DRAMAS SO MUCH? (Smithsonian Magazine, December 15, 2016, 2 pages) 우리가 시대극을 좋아하는 이유 Click here for available text on the Internet

The biggest costume drama in history premiered 77 years ago, and we’re easily as in love with the genre today. Gone With The Wind premiered on this day in 1939, in Atlanta, Georgia. It was huge, writes Carrie Hagen for Smithsonian.com, both culturally and financially. The governor had declared that day a state holiday, and before the movie started “around 300,000 fans lined the flat-decorated streets to greet the movie’s stars,” she writes.


AR02  Blakemore, Erin. WHY A CONGRESSIONAL COMMISSION WANTS A NATIONAL WOMEN’S HISTORY MUSEUM (Smithsonian Magazine, November 18, 2016, 2 pages) 미국 의회 위원회에서 국립여성사 박물관 설립을 주장하는 이유 Click here for available text on the Internet
How many historically significant women can you name? No matter what your gender identity, it’s likely that the number you can list off the top of your head pales in comparison to that of noteworthy men. That’s not because there's a lack of fascinating women in American history. Rather, women’s history has only relatively recently begun to be explored—and the nation’s museums have not yet begun to catch up.

In 1975, a 63-year-old Elizabeth Bishop wrote to her long-time friend and fellow poet Robert Lowell, who was then 58 and just two years from his death. “I’m going to be very impertinent and aggressive,” she wrote.


AR04 Catlin, Roger. KEEP AN EYE ON THESE PORTRAITS BECAUSE THEY MOVE (Smithsonian Magazine, November 6, 2016, 4 pages) 미국 비디오 아티스트 비올라가 만든 움직이는 초상화 Click here for available text on the Internet
"Watch,” says Bill Viola, staring intently at one of his works, which he knows as well as a recurrent dream. “See what happens.”And while most of the artworks at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, from those of the presidents to those in the contemporary shows, are certainly worth a look, Viola’s body of work, entirely on video, requires a longer view—and watching.
