Competitive Strategies vs business strategies | Sherwood Newkirk | Scoop.it

Did you know there is a difference between a Business Strategy and a Competitive Strategy? There certainly is. A Business Strategy revolves around major resource allocation. For instance, raising funds to build a new warehouse or Apple’s gearing up preparatory to their international release of their latest products. Businesses are particularly concerned about what and where things are produced. Competitive Strategy is concerned with doing things better than your company’s business rivals. Although there are several competitive strategies to consider, here are two major approaches for improving your competitive advantage:

While you'd never guess from the title, what this piece actually discusses is why so many companies tell stories so very badly, without credibility, without engagement, and without a CTA.

What the Heck Is Digitization Anyway?

What the Heck Is Digitization Anyway? | Sherwood Newkirk | Scoop.it

So what is digitization? Does it require use of digital technology? (that would mean that many analog sensors are out). Does it require the Internet? And most importantly, how does it differ from the general use of information systems, computerization, IT, e-commerce, e-business, Big Data, and the many other technology-fueled business trends of the past several decades? And if it’s not different, why did we need a new term? (Thomas Davenport)

Exploring the cognitive value of technology foresight: The case of the Cisco Technology Radar

There is much literature on how corporate foresight should be practiced, but fewer explanations of through which mechanisms it creates value. We seek to deepen this understanding by applying a cognitive lens. We mainly explore how and why foresight can influence ways of processing information, first conceptually and then empirically through the case of the Cisco Technology Radar. Through consulting multiple individuals, opposed to focusing solely on statements from top managers or observable outputs on the firm level, we uncover a broad set of “hidden values” from this technology foresight initiative. We conclude that a critical mechanism of a system such as the radar is its probing of analytical thinking, as well as its way of making people connect and exchange views across functions and departments. We also observe that deeper and more frequent involvement corresponds with greater perceived value of the system. Our findings have implications for research seeking to further understand through which mechanisms foresight creates value, and for the practice of designing, implementing and motivating for participation in technology foresight.
