Earlier this week Oliver Marks wrote an excellent post on his Collaboration 2.0 Blog: ‘The Purpose of a Business is to Create a Customer’ – Peter Drucker Centenary. Oliver celebrates the Nov 19, 2009 Centenary of Peter Drucker’s birth with two of his favorite Drucker bumper sticker quotes: ” ‘Knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes‘ and ‘There is an enormous number of managers who have retired on the job‘, which somehow seem to fit together very well.” then uses these quotes as context to discuss the disturbing findings of the 2009 Shift Index report and followup analysis by John Hagel, John Seely Brown and Lang Davidson of the Deloitte Center for Edge Innovation. Please read Oliver’s full post – you’ll like it. Oliver was also used kind words to build on my earlier Enterprise 2.0 Schism post.

With that in mind, I’d like to introduce a new and exciting element: schism.
I hereby declare myself an Enterprise 2.0 Strict Druckerian. I believe that “2.0” should be considered a modifier of Enterprise rather than an allusion to mere Web 2.0 technology – which is what an Enterprise 2.0 Strict Technarian would have you believe. Read the rest of this entry »

Paul Laudicina of A.T. Kearney: Rethinking Outsourcing

24. August 2009

aus der aktuellen Business Week über die Zukunft der “Reset Economy”:

Maria Bartiromo talks to the consulting firm chairman about rethinking outsourcing

By Maria Bartiromo

Whether we are truly emerging from recession—as a Wall Street Journal survey of economists and other reports contend—or are setting ourselves up for another reversal, one thing seems clear: When the global economy awakes from its long nightmare, there will be “a new normal.” In short, it won’t be business as usual. To get a sense of the changes afoot, I talked with Paul Laudicina, chairman of the worldwide consulting firm A.T. Kearney and an expert in business strategy.

What kinds of changes—for both countries and companies—do you see coming out of all this turmoil? Read the rest of this entry »
