Accenture 2015 Global Structural Reform Study

Accenture 2015 Global Structural Reform Study | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it

As they reshape the financial services industry in light of the 2007-2008 financial crisis, global regulators have introduced a series of structural reform regulations to help build resilience. Global Structural Reform (GSR) is creating a new financial services ecosystem for institutions. Accenture’s 2015 Global Structural Reform Study finds senior management working to thrive in what amounts to an all-new financial services landscape. They are investing effort and funds in their response to GSR, but their focus is on meeting regulatory demands. While that represents a good starting point, our study finds institutions might be missing out when it comes to meeting the strategic implications of reform and using reform as an opportunity to reposition the organization for sustainable growth

​Can you be big and differentiated? Boosting competitiveness in the age of digital - Accenture

​Can you be big and differentiated? Boosting competitiveness in the age of digital - Accenture | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it

In an environment where digital disruption creates new services (and whole new markets) overnight, today’s competitive battle cry is, “Differentiate or die.” Yet for large incumbent companies, differentiating is more difficult by the day. Why? Because many companies are stuck in traditional operating modes; inextricably tied to their matrices, organized for the sake of the old rules and processes rather than leading with the changing needs of customers and innovating outside in. It’s no wonder start-ups drive disproportionate amounts of market disruption. It may be less about their innovation capability and more about their simpler structures, transparency and, hence, agility.

Why Your Employees’ Suggestions Aren’t Going Anywhere

Why Your Employees’ Suggestions Aren’t Going Anywhere | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it
A lot of companies use an ever-more-sophisticated array of online social tools in an attempt to connect their people, get a flow of ideas going, and spur innovation. But after an initial flurry of activity, the initiatives often fizzle and the new tools get tucked away somewhere. What goes wrong? Why is the goal of a more collaborative and innovative organization so elusive?

Europe’s circular-economy opportunity | McKinsey & Company

Europe’s circular-economy opportunity | McKinsey & Company | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it
Europe’s economy has generated unprecedented wealth over the past century. Part of the success is attributable to continuous improvements in resource productivity—a trend that has started to reduce Europe’s resource exposure. At the same time, resource productivity remains hugely underexploited as a source of wealth, competitiveness, and renewal. Our new study, Growth within: A circular economy vision for a competitive Europe,1 provides new evidence that a circular economy, enabled by the technology revolution, would allow Europe to grow resource productivity by up to 3 percent annually. This would generate a primary-resource benefit of as much as €0.6 trillion per year by 2030 to Europe’s economies. In addition, it would generate €1.2 trillion in nonresource and externality benefits, bringing the annual total benefits to around €1.8 trillion compared with today.

New business intelligence skills in, BI developers out

New business intelligence skills in, BI developers out | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it

Organizations need new business intelligence skills oriented around data storytelling and visualization, says consultant Lee Feinberg -- and he offers a way to find the right people. As BI leaders, we need to put an end to this way of thinking about business intelligence skills, which is as outdated as the tools where all of this "BI developing" has gone on for the last 20 years. As data becomes more valuable, so do people who know how to use it effectively to help drive business decision making -- and they're not developers in the traditional sense of coding reports. If you're in a more forward-looking organization, you're trying to move in a different direction. You push members of your team to use data visualization best practices and tell stories with data to help make the results of BI applications more understandable to business executives

The Future of Management Is Teal

The Future of Management  Is Teal | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it

The premise of this article is that humanity is at a threshold; a new form of organization is emerging into public view. Anthropological research suggests that this is a natural next step in a process that began more than 100,000 years ago. There have been, according to this view, at least five distinct organizational paradigms in human history. Could the current organizational disillusionment be a sign that civilization is outgrowing the current model and getting ready for the next? A number of pioneering organizations in a wide variety of sectors — profit and nonprofit — are already operating with significantly new structures and management practices. They tend to be successful and purposeful, showing the promise of this emerging organizational model

The Danish life sciences cluster encompasses knowledge from a range of organizations, including brewing company Carlsberg A/S. There is ample evidence that geography matters for innovation. As a study of two industry clusters in Denmark shows, factors that can make clusters attractive — easy people movement and knowledge spillovers — can also make it harder for individual companies to retain proprietary knowledge.

The 2015 Global Innovation Economy Survey | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it

The state of the global innovation economy is alive and well, according to a recent survey report featuring organisations actively developing and implementing new technologies and solutions across a range of industries. The research reveals a sector of the worldwide business community that is investing more in innovation to affect an increasingly broad portfolio of organisational activities–from product and service development, to internal and external cost containment initiatives. However, there are some challenges that still need to be addressed, especially as organisations seek more transparency and predictability around implementing new innovations within expected time frames.

Why Firms Need to Change the Way They Measure Productivity - Knowledge@Wharton

Why Firms Need to Change the Way They Measure Productivity - Knowledge@Wharton | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it
Macroeconomists assume that technological change is biased and increases labor productivity alone, while the literature on productivity assumes that it increases the productivity of all factors equally, or that technological change is Hicks neutral. A new paper, “Measuring the Bias of Technological Change,” from Ulrich Doraszelski, Wharton professor of business economics and public policy, and Jordi Jaumandreu, senior academic researcher at Boston University, shows that the truth is somewhere in between. “We are the first to provide numbers to back up this claim,” Doraszelski says. “Our paper has the potential to change how economists think about technological change and how they account for it in their models.”

EY - Power and utilities: energy reform and unbundling | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it
In unreformed developed markets, the mix of electricity generation types — coal, gas, renewables — is often determined by the vertically integrated monopoly, with these decisions ultimately setting the market’s average price of generation. In these cases, most generation is either owned by the monopoly or contracted through independent power producer arrangements, whereby new entrants sign long-term power purchase agreements (PPAs) with the generation business of the monopoly.

South Africa’s bold priorities for inclusive growth | McKinsey & Company

South Africa’s bold priorities for inclusive growth | McKinsey & Company | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it

In the two decades since South Africans worked together to transform their political landscape and usher in a new democracy, the country has made remarkable progress. In particular, GDP has nearly doubled in real terms, lifting millions of people out of poverty and into the middle class and greatly expanding access to services. Yet since 2008, average annual GDP growth has slowed to just 1.8 percent, while unemployment has stubbornly remained at 25 percent. Given the country’s vibrant public life and dynamic business sector, South Africa has no shortage of ideas, but a tone of pessimism is growing as many worry that the economy is stuck in a low-growth trap. A new McKinsey Global Institute report, South Africa’s big five: Bold priorities for inclusive growth, recommends reigniting the country’s economic progress by focusing on five opportunities: advanced manufacturing, infrastructure, natural gas, service exports, and the agricultural value chain

Pharmaceutical companies are running hard to keep pace with changes brought about by digital technology. Mobile communications, the cloud, advanced analytics, and the Internet of Things are among the innovations that are starting to transform the healthcare industry in the ways they have already transformed the media, retail, and banking industries. Pharma executives are well aware of the disruptive potential and are experimenting with a wide range of digital initiatives. Yet many find it hard to determine what initiatives to scale up and how, as they are still unclear what digital success will look like five years from now. This article aims to remedy that. We believe disruptive trends indicate where digital technology will drive the most value in the pharmaceutical industry, and they should guide companies as they build a strategy for digital success.
