The strategy lenses

without comments

Strategy as a design

This takes the view that strategy development can be a local process in which the forces and constraints on the organisation are weighted carefully through analytic and evaluative techniques to establish clear strategy direction. This creates conditions in which carefully planned strategy implementation should occur.

Strategy as experience

Here the view is that future strategies of organisations are heavily influenced by the experience of the managers and others in the organisation based on their previous strategies.Strategies are driven not so mush by clear-cut analysis as by the taken-for-granted assumptions and ways og doing things embedded in the culture of organisations. read more aboute stratigic lenses here

From cradle to cradle

without comments

What is up with this concept?

I just heard about a new concept that relates to producing new producte. It is called from cradle til cradle -symbolizing that when an object has served its purpose it should be designed i a way, that its parts should be useable for creating new projects.

Is this just another ambitious idea?

My first thought was that “great here we are – another ambitious environmental idea”. But I have to my suprise learned that this is not the case. The people working from this concept have invented icecreame wrapping that melts when it is exposed to higher temperature than 10 degrees celcius. This is a genious idea. Think about how great our verges would look if wrappings in general just melted! read more about the cradle to cradle idea here

Do women want equality?

without comments

Woman’s libbers

For decades woman’s libbers have been crying out to equality between the sexes, but is that what women really want? I wonder if quit many women do not prefere that many things stays the good old way.

Double standart

Most women practice a great deal af double standart in this particular area. They do for instance clam equal pay, but do still insist on the men to propose marriage. Also many women like the notion of being spoiled by their man, getting gifts for them, arranging surprises, paying the bill when going out to eat. The qeustion is wether it is fair to keep up this double standart? About wether women ever will be financially equal with men here

Shrewd investments

To be making wise investments is first and fare most a question of getting incrased value out of your investment. You can buy when you think that the stocks are cheap. Wait for them to get worth more and them sell. This way you get to bring home profite.

Is that really all there is to it?

To buy cheap is not all that one must think of. The prices in financial intruments change all the time. Eventhough that they have a tendency to correct when the price has been too high or too low for a periode of time, there are many other reasons that the de- or increase. read more about stock exchange here

Equal pay between genders?

without comments

Equal pay?

For many years women have been complaining about not getting payed as much for their work as their male colleagues. Theire has been lots of reshearsh looking into the reasons for this difference in pay, but I wonder if it is not really the womens own fould?

Do women want to stay in the kitchen?

Do the women themselves not wish to stay at home with their children taking care of the family? I think that the mistake that many make is to bid over more than thery can chew. Wanting to do it all, non of it gets done well enough…

Men are more competent!

Men do in many situations come of as more competent than the women. Most are much better in pretenting that they have the needed skills, and have en generel understood the idea of having to sell themselves. Whereas women seem to think that they should only be judged by their skills – the biggest misunderstanding in history!

The differential treatment is ok

As long as the women do not understand to touch all chord in play, I truely believe that it is ok to practice differential treatment between men and women. Women have for too long blamed the society for this issue.

Stealing from work

without comments

We steal from work

A new danish survey shows that 3 in 4 steal from work. This has often resultet in sacking of the employes when it is discovered. This makes me think if it is the danes that are incredibly greedy or if this might be a generel problem world wide.

What is there to take?

In Denmark the cost of the stealing employes is estimated to run up between 5 or 6 billions. This is in a country that has only 5.3 million citicens. The employees steal almost everything from coupons giving free taxi trips and cartridges to the home printer. read more about employees stealing here
