On a smarter planet, answers are hidden in the data
The biggest leaps forward in the next several decades—in
business, science and society at large— will come from insights gleaned
through perpetual, real-time analysis of data. With nearly 2 billion
people on the Internet (and counting), and with more and more of the
world’s systems becoming digitally aware, there is greater diversity in
the forms and shapes data is taking—transactions of every kind, rich
media, social media....Yet, while data is growing at an exponential rate
in volume and
complexity, time is not. Which is why no organization, city or country
can afford “enterprise amnesia.” Whether your goal is
to remain competitive or to change the world—or both—you need to
capture, understand and use all of your data. And that,
in turn, is why the new science of analytics must be core to every
leader’s thinking.

HP Chemists Hunt Violators of Ink Patents
Aug. 29, 2006| WSJ | by Christoper Lawton. H-P's ink-cartridge
business acts as a powerful annuity for the company. HP, which has a
market share of 50% in the U.S. and more than 4,000 patents on its ink
formulations and cartridge design, often sells its printers at a loss,
then essentially locks customers in when they have to repeatedly come
back to buy replacement ink cartridges. In fiscal 2005, H-P made more
than 80% of its $5.6 billion in operating profit from ink and toner
supplies, according to Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. To protect this
franchise, increasingly under attack from rivals, H-P could sue any ink
makers it suspects are infringing on its patents. This month, it sued
China's G&G Ninestar Image Co., a cartridge manufacturer, alleging
G&G had violated seven H-P patents in cartridge design. The
complaint also targets four online retailers. H-P also asked the
International Trade Commission to open an investigation against
Ninestar.

Before You Buy a Business ...Or Any Major Asset
2009 | The Business Library |

There is a great deal of time and energy expended in buying a business
both before and after the closing.The period from your initial meeting
to actual closing usually covers 90 to 180 days and the post-closing
transition period can extend over 6 months to one year. Be aware of the
time required; you and your executives must set aside that time to meet
your commitments in negotiating and closing a deal. There is basic
information you will need to properly analyze and value the
to-be-acquired company, including: 1. the information needed to help you
determine your preliminary interest before proceeding with the
negotiations; 2. the work to do on a financial justification for
purchasing the company; and 3. the pre-closing documentation when you
are getting ready to finalize the price, payment terms, transition and
payment schedules, etc.

The Internet Report
February 1996 | Morgan Stanley U.S. Investment Research pg. 41 |
by assorted writers. When looking for investment ideas in new markets,
we default to our favorite maxims from Don Valentine of Sequoia Capital,
who is known as one of the toughest and smartest technology venture
capitalists in Silicon Valley. Don follows several simple rules in
choosing early-stage tech investments: (1) Find “monster” markets that
can be really big, like the Internet; (2) find good technology and good
technologists who can stay ahead of competitive threats; (3) find
outstanding leaders/management teams that can drive the technologies and
markets forward; and 4) buy companies, not products, and try to find
companies that have achieved critical mass with their products — or can
achieve it, and can create some form of “barriers to entry.”

The Art of Integrative Thinking
Fall 1999 | Rotman Management | by Roger Martin and Hilary Austen. Modern leadership necessitates integrative thinking.
Integrative thinkers work to see the whole problem, embrace its multi-varied nature, and understand the complexity of its
causal relationships.They work to shape and order what others see as a chaotic landscape.They search for creative resolutions.
to problems typically seen by others as a simple ‘fork in the
road’ or an irresolvable bind brought about by competing organizational
interests.

Marketing Myopia
July-August 2004 (Reprint from 1960) | Harvard Business Review | by Theodore Levitt.

Marketing Myopia suggests that businesses will do better in the end if they concentrate on meeting customers’ needs rather than on selling products......

Fundamental idea
The Myopic cultures, Levitt postulated, would pave the way for a business to fall, due to the short-sighted mindset and illusion that a firm is in a so-called 'growth industry'. This belief leads to complacency and a loss of sight of what customers want. It is said that these people focus more on the original product and refuse to adapt directly to the needs and wants of the consumer.

To continue growing, companies must ascertain and act on their customers’ needs and desires, not bank on the presumptive longevity of their products. In every case the reason growth is threatened, slowed or stopped is not because the market is saturated. It is because there has been a failure of management.

Some commentators have suggested that its publication marked the beginning of the modern marketing movement.[2] Its theme is that the vision of most organizations is too constricted by a narrow understanding of what business they are in. .....Organizations found that they had been missing opportunities which were plain to see once they adopted the wider view. ....There is no such a thing as a growth industry. There are only companies organized and operated to create and capitalize on growth opportunities.......There is a greater scope of opportunities as the industry changes. It trains managers to look beyond their current business activities and think "outside the box". . If a buggy whip manufacturer in 1910 defined its business as the "transportation starter business," they might have been able to make the creative leap necessary to move into the automobile business when technological change demanded it.....People who focus on marketing strategy, various predictive techniques, and the customer's lifetime value can rise above myopia to a certain extent.

How to master the art of thinking quickly on your feet
July 10, 2004 | The Globe and Mail | by Virginia Galt. (1)
Think brevity (2) Think structure (3) Think threes (4) Think movement.
BS3M |
Think brevity

Be aware that your audience values you getting to the point. They value complex ideas being explained simply. Everyone suffers from information overload. If you don't get to the point, you're adding to the overload.

Think structure

Place some kind of framework into your communication so that your audience can see you are organized and have thought about your answer. You have focused your answer into something digestible, something an audience can absorb. It forces you into brevity and clarity.

Think threes

Strong verbal messages require focus. They also require substance. One item is not enough. Seventeen items is too many. Three items is enough for you, and your audience, to retain. Three items forces you to focus on what is really important. It also focuses your audience on only having listen to three. Remember your audience's attention span.

Think movement

Demonstrate your mental ability to be logical, and to move your audience through that logic. What if someone asks a question to which you do not know the answer?
