The Human Algorithm: Redefining the Value of Data | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it

The onslaught of real-time social, local, mobile (SoLoMo) technology is nothing short of overwhelming. Besides the gadgets, apps, social networks and appliances that continue to emerge, the pace of innovation is only outdone by the volumes of data that each produce

Beautiful, Troubling Photos Show Our Planet as Astronauts See It | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it

The Overview Effect is a phenomenon often experienced by astronauts in outer space. Peering down at the earth from far away, people suddenly see our planet as a tiny, fragile oasis in the void. Our world is no longer the biggest thing in our universe, and those who have experienced this say it’s easy to feel an overwhelming need to protect the “pale blue dot.” In Daily Overview, Benjamin Grant wants to help those of us who will never travel to space have a similar experience. He scrolls through Google Earth, choosing the most visually compelling satellite images of man and nature

Why Target’s Canadian Expansion Failed

Why Target’s Canadian Expansion Failed | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it

The retailer went too big, too soon. To entice shoppers to switch, Target had to differentiate itself from all the other discount retail choices. It also had to address two kinds of customers in Canada: those already familiar with the retailer from their U.S. encounters and those new to the brand. While Target did a great job marketing its launch with a multiplatform ad strategy—TV, print, billboards, social media and so on— introducing itself as the new neighbour (notice the localized spelling), its execution was flawed.

Using Competitive Intelligence to Stay Ahead of Your Rivals

Using Competitive Intelligence to Stay Ahead of Your Rivals | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it

Despite the shift in the business world towards collaboration, competition is one of the founding principles of business. For many, the cut-and-thrust of the marketplace and engaging in daily healthy competition is why they chose a career in business. The aim of the game: get, and stay, one step ahead of your competitors.The phrase ‘knowledge is power’ has long been a mantra of many a business leader, and in today’s hyper-connected, data-driven world, knowledge means numbers.

An Exercise to Get Your Team Thinking Differently About the Future

An Exercise to Get Your Team Thinking Differently About the Future | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it

 Thinking about the future is hard, mainly because we are glued to the present. Daniel Kahneman, the Nobel Prize-winning economist and author of Thinking, Fast and Slow, observed that decision makers get stuck in a memory loop and can only predict the future as a reflection of the past. He labels this dynamic the “narrative fallacy” – you see the future as merely a slight variation on yesterday’s news. A way around this fallacy, we’ve found, is a speed-dating version of scenario planning, one that takes hours rather than months.

Can long-term global growth be saved? | McKinsey & Company

Can long-term global growth be saved? | McKinsey & Company | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it

Without action, global economic growth will almost halve in the next 50 years. A new McKinsey Global Institute report offers a solution: a dramatic improvement in productivity. A McKinsey Global Institute article. Over the past 50 years, global economic growth was exceptionally rapid. The world economy expanded sixfold. Average per capita income almost tripled. Hundreds of millions of people were lifted out of poverty. Yet unless we can dramatically improve productivity, the next half century will look very different. The rapid expansion of the past five decades will be seen as an aberration of history, and the world economy will slide back toward its relatively sluggish long-term growth rate

Where to look for global growth | McKinsey & Company

Where to look for global growth | McKinsey & Company | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it

For the last 50 years, the world economy has benefited from a demographic boom that has contributed 1.8 percent to average annual global GDP increases, helping to generate an unprecedented level of growth.1 This demographic headwind is coming to an end. With populations aging and fertility rates dropping around the world, the growth rates of the past 50 years may prove to be the exception, not the rule. The latest research of the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) suggests that unless increases in labor productivity compensate for an aging workforce, the next 50 years will see a nearly 40 percent drop in GDP growth rates and a roughly 20 percent drop in the growth rate of per capita income around the world.

China in 2015: Gauging the New Normal - Knowledge@Wharton | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it

Among China’s key challenges in 2015 will be to avoid the so-called “middle-income trap.” In the new normal, China’s GDP growth rate is no longer the most important indicator to watch, especially if authorities can manage the decline without widespread unrest, say Wharton and other experts. Rather, progress on fundamental economic reforms from the Communist Party Central Committee’s Third Plenum in late 2013 is more essential now in the country’s transition from a fast-growing, developing economy based on investment in heavy industry and low-cost, manufactured exports to a more mature economy based on domestic consumption and higher-value goods and services.

Creating What Consumers Want

Creating What Consumers Want | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it

although CPG companies are extremely good at the early stages of innovation—identifying promising areas of growth and creating new product ideas in those areas—and at the later stages of testing concepts and commercializing them, there’s a conspicuous hole in the middle of the process. They don’t have a clear grasp of which combinations of features, packaging, price, and even labeling will persuade consumers to make a purchase. They’re like triathletes who are world-class at swimming and running, but terrible at cycling.

Business model innovation is harder when you only look for radical reinvention.  Business model innovation is hard. But managers make it harder when they think about it only as radical industry reinvention. While revolutionary business model changes can be valuable, you don’t necessarily need to transform your industry. You don’t need to destroy your current business model. There is another way to make money from business model innovation. Sometimes it’s better to think a bit smaller so you can set yourself up for big results.

The three things to get right. Subtle but significant barriers have prevented the two largest democracies in the world from working together more closely. The openness and diversity of both India and America make it possible, however, for any open-minded and humble person in either country to learn about what drives their counterparts in the other nation. But the answer depends on what happens in the field, where companies must identify, nurture, and reward employees who want to be adept at both direct and indirect communication; or they must supplement their team with trusted external advisers..

What Is a Business Model?

What Is a Business Model? | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it

In The New, New Thing, Michael Lewis refers to the phrase business model as “a term of art.”  And like art itself, it’s one of those things many people feel they can recognize when they see it (especially a particularly clever or terrible one) but can’t quite define. That’s less surprising than it seems because how people define the term really depends on how they’re using it.

Creating a global framework for immigration | McKinsey & Company

Creating a global framework for immigration | McKinsey & Company | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it

Our best chance for future prosperity is taking a globally integrated approach to immigration, says international economist and author Dambisa Moyo. A McKinsey Global Institute article. Human capital will be both a key source of challenge and of opportunity for enhancing the prospects for long-term global prosperity. Unfortunately, we don’t treat it that way. Although labor quality and quantity are key inputs of canonical economic models of economic growth, there remains no globally integrated approach to migration. This is despite the fact that the two other critical determinants of economic growth—capital, in the form of trade and cross-border flows, and productivity, largely driven by the spread of ideas—are governed by international frameworks with rules and regulations overseen by international agencies.

ASEAN in 2015: Will Lower Oil Prices Interfere with Rapid Growth? Knowledge@Wharton

ASEAN in 2015: Will Lower Oil Prices Interfere with Rapid Growth? Knowledge@Wharton | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it

The 620 million people living in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, or ASEAN, are facing some potentially big changes in coming months, given lower oil prices and the formation of a regional economic community. The net impact is far from certain, however, and forming an economic community is no panacea, as anyone familiar with the tribulations of the European Union knows. Still, the planned launch of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) at the end of 2015 is likely to help sustain rapid economic growth in the medium term, analysts say. And the recent decline in crude oil prices to their lowest level in more than five years also will boost most ASEAN countries that are net importers of oil.

he pace of change in the knowledge economy is reaching unprecedented speed.

The second edition of the Global Talent Competitiveness Index, created by INSEAD, in partnership with Singapore’s Human Capital Leadership Institute and Adecco confirms that talent competitiveness is closely linked to wealth: high income countries again lead the top-scoring countries in the GTCI 2014.  With world-class universities, rich countries also have a greater ability to attract foreign talents through better quality of life and higher remuneration – all of which drive up diversity. In the ranking of 93 countries, which measures their ability to attract and incubate talent, European countries continue to dominate this year’s list with 16 of them in the top 25
