"The Rapid Results Method" topic of Binghamton Community Lab

2013-09-13

BINGHAMTON, NY – The Binghamton Community Lab will host a mixer and discussion titled, “The Rapid Results Method: How Your Business or Other Group can Produce Amazing Results in 100 Days” at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 17, at the Lost Dog Café Violet Room, 222 Water Street in Binghamton. This event is free and open to the public.   The Rapid Results Method was invented by a business consulting expert Robert Schaffer, who noticed the results that people achieve in emergency situations − and the elation that comes with it. Schaffer’s method unleashes this "zest" in normal situations by creating small groups and charging them with ambitious goals that must be accomplished in a short time. These "100-day cycles" can be employed repeatedly to produce short-term gains and meet long-term strategic goals.

The Rapid Results method has been adopted by major corporation and is also being used by developing nations to address issues such as child malnutrition and corruption. Distinguished Binghamton University Professor David Sloan Wilson will provide an overview of the method and how it can be used by various groups in Binghamton, including businesses, government, Binghamton University, SUNY Broome and other volunteer organizations.

Sloan Wilson uses evolutionary theory to explain all aspects of humanity in addition to the rest of life, as he recounts for a general audience in Evolution for Everyone: How Darwin's Theory Can Change the Way We Think About Our Lives (Bantam 2007). He is a distinguished professor of biology and anthropology at Binghamton University who publishes in anthropology, psychology and philosophy journals, in addition to his mainstream biological research. He is also found of the Binghamton Neighborhood Project and director of EvoS, the evolutionary studies program at Binghamton University that uses evolutionary theory as a common language for the unification of knowledge.

The Binghamton Community Lab is a gathering place for citizen investigators to create and support improvements that will grow a healthier, wealthier and strong Binghamton region. The series, held on the third Tuesday of each month, is facilitated by Sloan Wilson and David Currie, director of the Binghamton Regional Sustainability Coalition.
