Diffidence and Deference: diluting the digital economy

Diffidence and Deference: diluting the digital economy | Agilico - Executive Support | Scoop.it

Acclaimed as hallmarks of a civilized society, our globally acknowledged ‘British values’ of diffidence and deference are increasingly being questioned as suspects in the on-going navel-gazing search for economic growth.

None of this would matter much if we still lived in a pre-digital era. It might not even matter much if we were still living on the pre-2000 lower slopes of technological endeavour. But adapting now to the digital economy is bringing these culture clashes to the fore.

In any business that depends on the ability of the sales team members to consistently deliver new business, the business owner needs to be sure that deals are not left on the table, as a consequence of a lack of closing skills being applied to potential customers or clients.

 

Unless a business owner is well versed in sales and the key closing techniques that can be applied to convert interest into commitment, they may not know that their sales team lacks the full kit of closing skills, and will therefore be unable to identify their training needs.

 

This good article, stresses the importance of always asking for an order, and it outlines the five key closing techniques that can be deployed to ensure a high conversion rate from leads to business.

It's strong, it's durable, it's cheap: A $9 Cardboard Bike Set to Enter Production in Israel

It's strong, it's durable, it's cheap: A $9 Cardboard Bike Set to Enter Production in Israel | Agilico - Executive Support | Scoop.it

A fully-functioning, water-resistant cardboard bicycle is all set to hit the streets. And all major engineers claimed "it cannot be done".

 

The last time you purchased something made entirely from cardboard, chances are it was a box to pack up your belongings. While the sturdy material is perfect for moving your stuff, an inventor from Israel has figured out a way to make cardboard move you. Using nine dollars worth of materials, bicycle enthusiast Izhar Gafni has created a fully functioning, water-resistant bicycle, made, from seat to spokes, entirely of recycled cardboard. The technology makes the environmentalist's choice mode of transportation even a bit greener and easier on the wallet.

 

The all cardboard bike is shockingly durable: it can carry riders who weigh up to 485 pounds. A layer of coating atop the cardboard shields the bike from the elements and gives the finished product the look and feel of lightweight plastic. While the cost to make the bicycle ranges from nine to twelve dollars, the manufacturer expects to sell the vehicle for sixty to ninety dollars depending on the optional addition of an electric motor.

 

“It's going to be a game-changer in the bike world,” says Giora Kariv, an Israeli artist and a longtime friend of Gafni's who made a documentary about the project. “Like Henry Ford who made the car available to anybody, this bike is going to be cheap and available to any child in the world, including children in Africa who walk dozens of miles to school everyday.” Gafni's next steps involve establishing a company to produce and distribute his cardboard creation to the world market. He's currently working with investors to have the product ready for mass-production and worldwide distribution by next year.
