How to make a team of two dozens excellent students competitive and motivated? I am always wondering how my students will perceive for the life in the group after they graduate. It happened to me when seeing their acknowledge page for their thesis. Very interesting observations from what they appreciated. I found that those benefit them the most are (1) strong research engagements between the team members, (2) encouragement for the challenging research problems, (3) abundant computing resources, (4) quality time from the advisor.

今天想到一個問題,回去翻學生的論文。第一次看到學生論文中的致謝頁。

果然沒錯,團隊熱情的氣氛很重要。提供最好的資源,具有挑戰性的研究工作,讓一群聰明研究生可以隨時互信切磋協助,似乎是最有效率的管理方式。

鼓勵冒險、拉高標準、挑戰思維的完整性、關懷、敞開大門隨時進門討論。

更令我驚訝的是,從去年8月到IBM紐約Watson 研究中心進行一年的休假研究(sabbatical leave),溝通的工具轉換為slack以及hangout。發現團隊的productivity 反而變高了,有好幾件連我自己看了都相當驚艷的成果。

我還在想,這是怎樣的因素,人不在台北,為何團隊效率反而提高了呢?
