For all o their promise, analytics projects are oten stymied because o ailures to appreciate that both data-driven analytics and expert decision making have strengths as well as limitations and that the strengths andlimitations o each must be counterbalanced with those o the other. The image o “data mining” shouldgive way to the image o “data dialogues.”

With the growing ubiquity o mobile devices comes a set o unique challenges or companies riding thewireless wave o opportunity. Throw the impending arrival o the broadband 4G era into the mix anduncertainty levels are set to spike as the scramble or competitive advantage intensies.

A visit and conversation with Henry Chesbrough on all things open innovation and thechallenges of sustaining the open business model.
Iw  S W
Since Henry Chesbrough’s rst book on open innovation was published in 2003, the idea has becomea widely accepted model o innovation management. It is ounded on the theory that companies shouldbecome adept at looking beyond their own our walls to trade unused intellectual property and sourcenew ideas rom third parties back into their own organizations in order to stimulate their stagnatinginnovation processes.

Case-based analysis suggests that although each o three types o strategic change—Position, Market andCompetency—can succeed, changing Position brings with it the greatest risks, while changing Marketsand Competencies are typically more successul paths to enduring perormance. These observations canhelp managers see more clearly both the risks and rewards o the dierent types o strategic change availableto them, and to assess their options accordingly.
Headwinds, Tailwinds and the Riddles of Demographics

Demographic trends and their infuences on workorces vary widely between countries and regions.Dierent regions—even countries within regions—are in dierent stages with regard to current and uturelabor orces, suggesting that labor strategies should be tailored to the local situation. That variation bringsboth complexity and opportunities or companies with a presence in several regions.

Despite high unemployment, companies are having trouble lling job vacancies, with shortagesoten occurring in critical, skilled roles with high barriers to entry and crucial to a company’s suc-cess. A targeted retention strategy, with an increasingly sophisticated view o what employees arelooking or, what they value and why they leave, can help companies navigate this talent paradox.

Geography is a key driver o corporate perormance, aecting actors such as talent attraction andretention, operating costs, exposure to risk and shareholder value. Companies that proactivelymanage their global ootprint—in good and not-so-good times—can gain a competitive advan-tage that is dicult to replicate, literally positioning the organization globally to achieve itsstrategic objectives, both in the short term and or the uture.

Most marketing organizations execute the same basic activities. But not all great marketing orga-nizations make identical choices. Both the great brand builders and the great product innovatorscan be great marketers, but the underlying capabilities and choices that allow each to succeed aredierent and not necessarily interchangeable. Knowing this can infuence how a company investsits incremental marketing dollars.

Integrated reporting aims to incorporate everything rom strategy to risk management, rom -nancial reporting to the inclusion o other capitals (societal and environmental impacts), and tomeet the needs o a broad a group o stakeholders. It intends to interlink these elements in a waythat makes their interdependencies clear. In doing so, it may represent the most signicant changeto the reporting rulebook in years.

Sustainability can drive innovation by introducing new design constraints that shape how keyresources are used in products and processes. It can suggest areas where innovation can pay o especially well. How a company attempts to overcome these new design constraints, deliveringsimilar levels o perormance and cost at lower levels o resource usage, may be key to its prospects.

Smartphone-equipped consumers remain a minority, yet their attitudes and behaviors, as well asincreasingly capable devices and a prolieration o mobile applications, suggest a much larger cus-tomer base in the uture. For these mobile consumers, the pre-store and in-store shopping processis being redened with a range o players vying or a prominent role in enabling, guiding andconstructing business models around those consumers.
