51. Then and Now: Using the Past to Secure the Future with W02 Paul Barnes
The Convergence - An Army Mad Scientist Podcast
Paul Barnes is a serving Warrant Officer in the British Army, employed as a Doctrine Writer at the Land Warfare Centre. He is uniquely a Chief of the Air Staff’s Fellow, a Chief of the General Staff’s Fellow, and a former MWI fellow at West Point in 2021. In today’s interview, Warrant Officer Class 2 Paul Barnes, British Army, discusses his article Learning the Wrong Lessons: Biases, the Rejection of History, and Single-Issue Zealotry in Modern Military Thought, featured by our colleagues at Modern War Institute; learning from historical conflicts; and fighting against “neophilia” and “presentism”. The following bullet points highlight key insights from our interview: In the aforementioned article, Paul Barnes discusses the dangers of “presentism,” in which current events are catastrophized and used to inform the future without adequate acknowledgement of historical context. This mindset creates two dangerous fallacies: 1) that the world is more dangerous than it has been before; and 2) that technology is developing more rapidly than ever before.These statements are both false and promote the idea that history cannot help us understand our operational environment. The misconceptions promoted by presentism are generally accepted due to a lack of contextual historical understanding.However, militaries also promote the ideas of presentism to secure greater budget allocations. Analysts, too, use presentism to promote the legitimacy of their ideas and engagement with their work. Leveraging historical context to avoid the bias of presentism can be challenging. Even information from on-the-ground analysts throughout history will include bias. Multiple perspectives from history should be recognized, thus creating the opportunity to ‘learn from committee’ and avoid the pitfalls of biased reporting. The age of the tank is not over, as seen in the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. Modern and future warfare will continue to leverage a combination ofinformation operations and heavy combined arms maneuver. To avoid presentism, enhanced education on critical thinking,bias recognition, and military history should be incorporated in professional military education for both Soldiers and Leaders.The latter is especially important, as an understanding of the past helps provide context for comprehending the present. While we can “train for the known,” education will help the Army be better prepared for the unknown. Stay tuned to the Mad Scientist Laboratory for our next episode of The Convergence podcast — Innovation at the Edge — featuring senior military leaders, field and company grade officers, and young Soldiers discussing innovation at the unit and individual level, thinking differently about modern warfare, and implementing grassroots transformation in the U.S. Army.

Build Financial Maturity in Your Agency with Paul Barnes - MAP
GYDA Initiative - Grow Your Digital Agency
In this GYDA Talks, Robert talks to Paul Barnes. Paul is Managing Director of MAP, who specialise in helping digital creative agencies to climb the maturity curve and grow more profitably. They do this by giving the agencies total visibility and understanding of their finances, so they can make better and more timely decisions.An agency’s growth often outpaces the effectiveness of their finance function; while a well optimised back office can be an essential component in ensuring you are growing in the right way. The Agency Maturity Curve is a way in which digital agencies assess the strength of their operating model, by pegging the strengths and weaknesses of their finance function against a set of disciplines with clearly defined outcomes.The more established the business, the further along the Agency Maturity Curve we would expect them to be, but this may not actually be the reality. Identifying areas for development shows where improvements can have the greatest impact, and how long it might take to get there.Whether you are looking to scale, sell or just run a more operational slick agency, you will be held back if the finances don’t stand up to what the business needs. Ultimately you will not have access to the data you need to make informed decisions and you will leak profit.Robert an Paul discuss:Asking the right questionsPoor financial education is ubiquitous in many agency boardsYou need to link strategy to the numbers and tell the full storyAgency Maturity Curve and Scorecard This is a bitesize version of the hour-long video.
