LEADERSHIP The missing piece in the Naija puzzle
  • Empires, nations, organizations and people
    groups have always progressed or otherwise
    based on the quality of leadership theyre
    exposed to, e.g. Rome, US, Enron, Igbo
  • Leadership is not achieved by birth or location!
    Nigerias second generation leadership slots are
    empty!
  • Nigeria needs a new generation a new breed
    without greed, and strongly opposed to the status
    quo ante
  • Leadership can be cultivated An object will
    always continue in its state of rest unless acted
    upon by a force. A mans life will always
    gravitate in the direction of his most dominant
    thought
  • Identify tools that can aid your interaction
    with leadership STUDY, MENTOR-PROTEGEE,
    SELF-PRACTICE platforms

INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY A Veritable Tool
  • Each age has its own tool. The New Economys
    central tool is Information Technology just as
    automation was the central tool for the
    Industrial Revolution
  • The need to master the use of Information
    Technology in the broader sense of Information
    and Communication Technologies is not
    negotiable, its the worlds direction
  • Information Technology is multidisciplinary and
    you need to identify the portion you wish to
    swim in
  • Information Sciences, Telecommunications,
    Networks, Computing and Emerging Technologies
    have converged to provide this generation with a
    tool with which we can acquire appropriate
    skills, e.g leadership

4
Deploying the TOOL
  • The Internet remains the worlds largest
    library, encyclopedia and resource centre rolled
    into one. Explore it, study the content, meet
    with the living and the dead who lived your
    dream, and shorten the distance between you and
    knowledge
  • Dont just get, give. Contribute your own quota
    to the worlds pool of leadership skills by
    uploading content to the web.
  • I see a new Nigeria emergingone that will be
    built on the labours of our heroes past, hewn out
    of the debris of the present waste and engineered
    by the strength of the youth. These young men
    and women will adopt Information Technology for
    the purpose of personal development, nation
    building, regional cooperation and global
    participation. They exist unknown today, but in
    the secrecy of their abode, they master the tool
    that will change their lives and that of their
    nation.

A Brief Introduction to eCommerce
Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary defines
commerce as follows com.merce n MF, fr. L
commercium, fr. com- merc-, merx merchandise
(1537) 1 social intercourse interchange of
ideas, opinions, or sentiments 2 the exchange or
buying and selling of commodities on a large
scale involving transportation from place to
place eCommerce is the use of internetworked
computers to create and transform business
relationships. Applications provide business
solutions that improve the quality of goods and
services, increase the speed of service delivery,
and reduce the cost of business operations.
15
Introduction to eCommerce
  • It is most commonly associated with buying and
    selling information, products, and services via
    the Internet, but it is also used to transfer and
    share information within organizations through
    intranets to improve decision-making and
    eliminate duplication of effort. The new paradigm
    of eCommerce is built not just on transactions
    but on building, sustaining and improving
    relationships, both existing and potential.
  • Web surfing brings each eCommerce (Electronic
    Commerce) site and its product or service into
    the home, office, room or palm of the client and
    orders can be placed with the click of a mouse or
    the push of a key. Personal identification,
    customer preferences and a sophisticated database
    of customers can be monitored to provide tailored
    or customised services to clients. Electronic
    Fund Transfer (EFT) makes it possible for
    transaction to be completed with payments carried
    our real-time and online.

A brief history of eCommerce

17
There are several trends and factors that are
instrumental in shaping the current and future of
eCommerce. They include Economy Organizations
in the past were large, slow and pyramidal. Power
was based on who controlled capital. Today we are
moving toward a knowledge economy where creation
and dissemination of knowledge is the means to
control. New organizations are flexible, dynamic
and dramatically lower in land, labor and capital
requirements. Its the quality and productivity,
rather than the volume, of workers that define
the new economy. Politics The politically
powerful controlled the means toproduction.
Democracy was mitigated by economics. Information
was top-down, tightly controlled, and slow
moving. We are moving into a new information and
knowledge is more accessible and the creation of
knowledge and constant learning is made easier,
empowerment is made more tenable (although not a
given).

Culture Dual income households, increased
workloads and commute time had a detrimental
effect on culture and the quality of life. New
workplace designs and telecommuting afford more
time for leisure and family. Culture is based
less on capital attainment and more on knowledge
acquisition. Technology Early technology
implementation devalued workers as it was used to
replace people and to reduce costs. Emerging
technology characteristics include1. creation
of virtual spaces2. interactivity of work3.
disintermediation, providing direct
communication4. immediacy of information to
conduct work and make decisions5. bandwidth to
exploit the potential of multimedia for work6.
accessibility of information both just-in-time
(pull) andbroadcast (push)

Key Applications of eCommerce (B2B)
The Internet can connect all businesses to each
other, regardless of their location or position
in the supply chain. This ability presents a huge
threat to traditional intermediaries like
wholesalers and brokers. Internet connections
facilitate businesses ability to bargain
directly with a range of suppliers, thereby
eliminating the need for such intermediaries. Ther
e are, however, tremendous opportunities as well
as threats for companies regardless of their
position in the supply chain. They
include Providing Information Purchasing and
Selling Moving to an Internet platform

Key Applications of eCommerce (B2C)
  • One-way marketing Corporate web sites are still
    prominent distribution mechanisms for corporate
    brochures, the push, one-way marketing strategy.
  • Purchasing over the Web Availability of secure
    web transactions is enabling companies to allow
    consumers to purchase products directly over the
    web.
  • Relationship Marketing The most prominent of
    these new paradigms is that of relationship
    marketing. Because consumer actions can be
    tracked on the web, companies experiment with
    this methodology as a tool for market research
    and relationship marketing Consumer survey forms
    on the web, using web tracking and other
    technology to make inferences about consumer
    buying profiles, customizing products/services,
    achieving customer satisfaction and building
    long-term relationships
