Expanding Our Horizons - Efficiently

Edge Perspectives

In our Big Shift world, we confront the imperative of institutional innovation – shifting from institutional models built on scalable efficiency to institutional models built on scalable learning. I’ve written and spoken about this a lot over the years and one of the most common pushbacks I get is – “so, are you against efficiency?” Let me lead with the answer – no, I’m not against efficiency. First, we need to broaden our horizons to look beyond efficiency.

Best Practices for Efficient Log Management and Monitoring

Sustainability versus Efficiency

The Agile Manager

In so doing, they're not focused on sustainability, they're focused on efficiency. Efficiency requires everything to stay the same. We luxuriate in the simplicity of holding everything else constant when we focus solely on efficiency. When we pursue efficiency, we're focused on where the business is right now. In efficiency-centric businesses, it’s not uncommon to find people doing substantially the same things that people were doing 10 years earlier.

More Manageable, Efficient Code Through 5S

Tim Kadlec

By using the system applied to coding, we can make our code more efficient and much easier to maintain. If you eliminate all of the items that are not necessary, you immediately have a workspace that is cleaner and thereby more efficient. ’ This step involves arranging resources in the most efficient way possible so that those resources are easy to access. Sometimes code turns ugly.

Faster remainders when the divisor is a constant: beating compilers and libdivide

Daniel Lemire

In some instances, libdivide can even be more efficient than compilers because it uses an approach introduced by Robison (2005) where we not only use multiplications and shifts, but also an addition to avoid arithmetic overflows. There are far more efficient ways to do that, but here is the programming 101 approach in C: for ( uint32_t i = 0 ; i < N ; i + + ) {. Not all instructions on modern processors cost the same.
