0 #1 Terrible Rank DiscrepanciesApril 2010-06-15 11:02:18
I noticed that you have a number of discrepancies in your ranking strategy and I'm quite frankly appalled at your lack of proofing and editing. Some of the time ties are denoted (correctly) by duplicating the rank followed by the next appropriate number had no tie existed (i.e. 34th, 34th, 36th). Other times you (erroneously) list the same score with different ranks (i.e. 38th - 270.4, 39th - 270.4).
This should be an embarrassment to your magazine as it significantly reduces the credibility of your survey. Next year I hope you have your ducks in a row prior to the publication date.

0 #2 Rank discrepanciesBrandon Sawyer 2010-06-15 17:58:37
Thanks for bringing this to our attention. The cause of the discrepancies was that differences in score were obscured by rounding scores up to one decimal point. I have updated the online list with scores carried out to two digits so you can see accurate differences in score that correspond to the ranks. Next year, we will ensure that the list presented to all readers shows enough information to make sense of the rankings.

I'm sorry for any negative impression it may have given about the survey.

Thanks again for your diligent reading of the list.

Editor's Letter: Power Play

January-Powerbook 2015
Thursday, December 11, 2014

There’s a fascinating article in the December issue of the Harvard Business Review about a profound power shift taking place in business and society. It’s a long read, but the gist revolves around the tension between “old power” and “new power” as a driver of transformation. Here’s an excerpt:

Old power works like a currency. It is held by few. Once gained, it is jealously guarded, and the powerful have a substantial store of it to spend. It is closed, inaccessible, and leader-driven. It downloads, and it captures.

New power operates differently, like a current. It is made by many. It is open, participatory, and peer-driven. It uploads, and it distributes. Like water or electricity, it’s most forceful when it surges. The goal with new power is not to hoard it but to channel it.

The authors, Henry Timms and Jeremy Heimans, don’t necessarily favor one form of power over another but merely outline how power is transitioning, and how companies can take advantage of these changes to strengthen their positions in the marketplace. 

Our Powerbook issue might be viewed as a case study in the new-power transition. This annual book of lists provides information on leading businesses, nonprofits and universities in the state. Most of the featured companies are entrenched power players now pursuing more flexible and less hierarchical approaches to doing business. Law firms, for example, are adopting new technologies and fee structures to make legal services more accessible and affordable.

This month we also take a look at a controversial new U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission rule requiring public companies to disclose the median pay of workers, as well as the ratio between CEO and median-worker pay. 

Part of the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform law, the rule will compel public companies to be more open about employee compensation, with the assumption that greater transparency will improve corporate performance and, perhaps, help address one of the major challenges of our time: income inequality.

New power is not only about strategy and tactics, the Harvard Business Review authors say. “The ultimate questions are ethical. The big question is whether new power can genuinely serve the common good and confront society’s most intractable problems.”

That sounds like a call to arms. Or a New Year’s resolution. Old power or new, the goals are the same: to be a force for positive change in the world. Happy 2015!
