Getting Beyond Lip Service!No longer are we
only an insurance provider. Today, we also
offer our customers the products and services
that help them achieve their dreams, whether its
financial security, buying a car, paying for home
repairs, or even taking a dream vacation.Martin

rather than a competitive advantage.J.D. Power

The surplus society has a surplus of similar
companies, employing similar people, with similar
educational backgrounds, coming up with similar
ideas, producing similar things, with similar
prices and similar quality.Kjell Nordstrom and

Once devised in Riyadh, the tasking order took
hours to get to the Navys six aircraft
carriersbecause the Navy had failed years
earlier to procure the proper communications gear
that would have connected the Navy with its Air
Force counterparts. To compensate for the lack
of communications capability, the Navy was forced
to fly a daily cargo mission from the Persian
Gulf and Red Sea to Riyadh in order to pick up a
computer printout of the air mission tasking
order, then fly back to the carriers, run
photocopy machines at full tilt, and distribute
the documents to the air wing squadrons that were
planning the next strike. Bill Owens, Lifting

Reuters (12.11.01) Teens and young adults are
flocking to the Web for health-related

and playing games online and more often than
shopping online, according to a national survey

Message eCommerce is not a technology play! It
is a relationship, partnership, organizational
and communications play, made possible by new
technologies.
33
Message There is no such thing as an effective
B2B or Internet-supply chain strategy in a
low-trust, bottlenecked-communication, six-layer

34
Ebusiness is about rebuilding the organization
from the ground up. Most companies today are not
built to exploit the Internet. Their business
processes, their approvals, their hierarchies,
the number of people they employ all of that is
wrong for running an ebusiness.Ray Lane,

Supply Chain 2000When Joe Employee at
Company X launches his browser, hes taken to
Company Xs personalized home page. He can
interact with the entire scope of Company Xs
world customers, other employees, distributors,
suppliers, manufacturers, consultants. The
browser that is, the portal resembles a My
Yahoo for Company X and hooks into every network
associated with Company X. The real trick is that
Joe Employee, business partners and customers
dont have to be in the office. They can log on
from a cell phone, Palm Pilot, pager or home
office system.Red Herring (09.2000)

The Real New EconomyImagine a chess game in
which, after every half dozen moves, the
arrangement of the pieces on the board stays the
same but the capabilities of the pieces randomly
change. Knights now move like bishops, bishops
like rooks Technology does that. It rubs out
boundaries that separate industries. Suddenly new
competitors with new capabilities will come at
you from new directions. Lowly truckers in brown
vans become geeky logistics experts. Business

44
Good management was the most powerful reason
leading firms failed to stay atop their
industries. Precisely because these firms
listened to their customers, invested
aggressively in technologies that would provide
their customers more and better products of the
sort they wanted, and because they carefully
studied market trends and systematically
allocated investment capital to innovations that
promised the best returns, they lost their
positions of leadership.Clayton Christensen,
The Innovators Dilemma
45
A pattern emphasized in the case studies in this
book is the degree to which powerful competitors
not only resist innovative threats, but actually
resist all efforts to understand them, preferring
to further their positions in older products.
This results in a surge of productivity and
performance that may take the old technology to
unheard of heights. But in most cases this is a
sign of impending death.Jim Utterback,
Mastering the Dynamics of Innovation
46
ForgetgtLearnThe problem is never how to get
new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how
to get the old ones out.Dee Hock
47
Chivalry is dead. The new code of conduct is an
active strategy of disrupting the status quo to
create an unsustainable series of competitive
advantages. This is not an age of defensive
castles, moats and armor. It is rather an age of
cunning, speed and surprise. It may be hard for
some to hang up the chain mail of sustainable
advantage after so many battles. But
hypercompetition, a state in which sustainable
advantages are no longer possible, is now the
only level of competition.Rich DAveni,
Hypercompetition Managing the Dynamics of
Strategic Maneuvering

Acquisitions are about buying market share. Our
challenge is to create markets. There is a big

is not a man plagued by self doubt. Mr. Zell
controls public companies that own nearly 700

Zell says he will transform the real estate
market by turning those REITs into national
brands. Mr. Zell believes clients will start
to view those offices as something more than a
commodity chosen chiefly by price and location.

the world no, the person for him to be afraid of
is some ignorant antagonist who has never had a
sword in his hand before he doesnt do the thing
he ought to do, and so the expert isnt prepared
for him he does the thing he ought not to do and
often it catches the expert out and ends him on
the spot. Mark Twain

Suppliers There is an ominous downside to
strategic supplier relationships. An SSR supplier
is not likely to function as any more than a
mirror to your organization. Fringe suppliers
that offer innovative business practices need not
apply. Wayne Burkan, Wide Angle Vision Beat
the Competition by Focusing on Fringe
Competitors, Lost Customers, and Rogue Employees

WEIRD IDEAS THAT WORK (1) Hire slow learners (of
the organizational code). (1.5) Hire people who
make you uncomfortable, even those you dislike.
(2) Hire people you (probably) dont need. (3)
Use job interviews to get ideas, not to screen
candidates. (4) Encourage people to ignore and
defy superiors and peers. (5) Find some happy
people and get them to fight. (6) Reward
success and failure, punish inaction. (7)
Decide to do something that will probably fail,
then convince yourself and everyone else that
success is certain. (8) Think of some
ridiculous, impractical things to do, then do
them. (9) Avoid, distract, and bore
customers, critics, and anyone who just wants to
talk about money. (10) Dont try to learn
anything from people who seem to have solved the
problems you face. (11) Forget the past,
particularly your companys success. Bob
Sutton, Weird Ideas that Work 11½ Ideas for
Promoting, Managing and Sustaining Innovation

TALENT POOL TO DIE FOR. Youthful. Insanely
energetic. Value creativity. Risk taking is
routine. Failing is normal if youre
stretching. Want to make their bones in the
revolution.Love the new technologies. Well
rewarded. Dont plan to be around 10 years from
now.
161
TALENT POOL PLUS. Seek out and work with
worlds best as needed (its often needed). We
aim to change the world, and we need gifted
colleagueswho well may not be on our payroll.

BRASSY-BUT-GROUNDED-LEADERSHIP. Say I dont
knowand then unleash the TALENT. Have a vision
to be DRAMATICALLY DIFFERENTbut dont expect the
co. to be around forever. Will scrap pet
projects, and change course 180 degreesand take
a big write-off in the process. NO REGRETS FROM
SCREW-UPS WHOSE TIME HAS NOT-YET-COME. GREAT
REGRETS AT TIME WASTED ON ME TOO PRODUCTS
AND PROJECTS.

BRASSY-BUT-GROUNDED-LEADERSHIP. (Cont.)
Visionary leaders matched by leaders with
shrewd business sense HOW DO WE TURN A PROFIT
ON THIS GORGEOUS IDEA? Appreciate market
creation as much as or more than market share
growth. ARE INSANELY AWARE THAT MARKET LEADERS
ARE ALWAYS IN PRECARIOUS POSITIONS, AND THAT
MARKET SHARE WILL NOT PROTECT US, IN TODAYS
VOLATILE WORLD, FROM THE NEXT KILLER IDEA AND
KILLER ENTREPRENEUR. (Gates. Ellison. Venter.
McNealy. Walton. Case. Etc.)
164
ALLIANCE MANIACS. Dont assume that the best
resides within. WORK WITH A SHIFTING ARRAY OF
STATE-OF-THE-ART PARTNERS FROM ONE END OF THE
SUPPLY CHAIN TO THE OTHER. Including vendors
and consultants and especially PIONEERING
CUSTOMERS who will pull us into the future.
165
TECHNOLOGY-NETWORK FANATICS. Run the
whole-damn-company, and relations with all
outsiders, on the Internet at Internet speed.
Reluctant to work with those who dont share
this (radical) vision.
166
POTENTIAL MACHINES-ORGANISMS. Dont know whats
coming next. But are ready to jump at
opportunities, especially those that
challenge-overturn our own way of doing things.
