How do you influence people who do not report to you? How do you get them to do things even though they don't have to or want to?

2 Answers

I would answer this question by first stating that it is important to get to know how people are motivated on a personal level first. If they do not report to you then you might not have positional authority to ask them for a deliverable. At a company like Microsoft, I'm sure that there are jobs/roles that require people to get help/collaboration from people outside of their positional authority. To do this, you must first know what motivates a person and proactively make personal "deposits" to build some solid connections so that when you need to make a "withdraw" you have invested enough. Deposits can be made by taking an interest in someone, providing them with help when they need it, or maybe buying them lunch/drinks. Less

a) I've never actually had someone refuse to help me when asked, but b) I would try ahead of time to get to know them so that when I need to influence them or need to request assistance, they already have a basic level of comfort with me. Less

When would you use k means cluster and when would you use hierarchical cluster?

2 Answers

Hierarchical Clustering and k-means clustering complement each other. In hierarchical clustering, the researcher is not aware of the number of clusters to be made whereas in k-means clustering, the number of clusters to be made are specified before-hand. Advice- If unaware about the number of clusters to be formed, use hierarchical clustering to determine the number and then use k-means clustering to make more stable clusters as hierarchical clustering is a single-pass exercise whereas k-means is an iterative process.
