Today’s ABP class was special. It was as special as it was different. Perhaps the educational system should embrace the inclusion of alternative learning tools more frequently.

Indeed, there are other learning tools besides the conventional classroom taught styles.

We experience the world in different ways, which leads to variances in our preferred mode of learning. Understanding the different learning styles can have a significant impact on how tutors impact knowledge and customize individual learning.

Whilst some of us are visual learners, others are auditory learners, kinesthetic learners, or reading/writing learnings. This is not barring the reality that individuals often benefit from a combination of learning tools.

Synopsis of the movie

Eye in the Sky begins in Nairobi as a joint British-American surveillance operation aimed at known terrorists. Helen Mirren played Colonel Katherine Powell, a British military officer in command of a top-secret drone operation in Kenya to apprehend terrorists. Through remote monitoring and on-the-ground intelligence, Powell discovers that the targets are planning a suicide attack, and the mission shifts from capture to kill. A nine-year-old girl enters the kill zone just as American pilot Steve Watts (Aaron Paul) is about to engage, initiating an international debate on the moral, political, and human dimensions of contemporary warfare that reaches the highest echelons of the US and British administrations.

The Ethical Dilemma of Drone Warfare

Does killing a group of highly dangerous and wanted terrorists who are about to launch a suicide bombing attack justify causing harm to an innocent little girl who happens to be around the area of the military operation? The movie highlights the ethical dilemma of drone warfare. It shows the indifference with which drone attacks are implemented


Colonel Powell remained agile throughout the movie. She was quick to move as situations changed. This can be compared to the fast-paced and dynamic business environment.

An agile business can respond quickly and effectively to opportunities and threats it encounters in its internal and external environments. Only the most adaptable companies would survive.

For example, in the banking industry, with the growing number of specialized banks and FinTechs, competition for customer acquisition and customer retention has become fierce. FinTechs, on the other hand, should not pose a danger to traditional banks because they have the deep pockets to invest in them.

Furthermore, traditional brick-and-mortar buildings should be replaced by digital channels. New options for delivering individualized and tailored banking services via digital products should also be implemented. Traditional banks must be forced to shift in strategy.

Bureaucratic Processes

The plot also depicted the tedious bureaucratic processes that regulate such operations. The decision-making process was hampered by military and political hierarchical delays as they considered the decision’s strategic, political, and personal implications. Time is running out and these terrorists are the number two, three, and five most wanted terrorists in East Africa on the American list. Colonel Powell had been tracking them for six years and indicated that this was the closest she had gotten to apprehending them.

In the corporate world, time is also of the essence when making decisions. While bureaucracy helps institutions achieve their objectives, it also has the ability to make the procedure appear more important than the ultimate outcome. Administrative procedures should be streamlined and should not be allowed to jeopardize business objectives.

We’ll discuss some other lessons in the next post.
