We are entering an era of no limits, with
nothing to brake the cascade of human
intelligence unleashed by the Information Age.
The Web essentially allows all the brains on
earth to communicate and share insights in real
time, around the globe, all the time.Jeffrey
Young, Cisco Unauthorized
In 25 years, youll probably be able to get the
sum total of all human knowledge on a personal

Forces _at_ Work IThe Destruction Imperative!
The corporation as we know it, which is now 120
years old, is not likely to survive the next 25
years. Legally and financially, yes, but not
structurally and economically.Peter Drucker,
Business 2.0 (08.00)
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
Acquisitions are about buying market share. Our
challenge is to create markets. There is a big
difference. Peter Job, CEO, Reuters

We believe companies can increase their market
cap 50 percent in 3 years. Steve Macadam at
Georgia-Pacific changed 20 of his 40 box plant
managers to put more talented, higher paid
managers in charge. He increased profitability
from 25 million to 80 million in 2 years.Ed

The surplus society has a surplus of similar
companies, employing similar people, with similar
educational backgrounds, working in similar jobs,
coming up with similar ideas, producing similar
things, with similar prices and similar
quality.Kjell Nordstrom and Jonas
Ridderstrale, Funky Business
Companies have defined so much best practice
that they are now more or less identical.Jesper
Kunde, A Unique Moment
Brand OutsideStrategy 1Use E-Commerce to
Re-invent Everything!
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,
Kleiner Perkins
The concept of being always on, always
connected, is very powerful. Companies are
going to need to reach consumers across all the
different transmission media and devices across
wireless, on cell phones, into cars, onto
airplanes, into cabs, into the home and TV set.

the same way, dont communicate the same way,
dont buy for the same reasons.He simply wants
the transaction to take place. Shes interested
in creating a relationship. Every place women go,
they make connections.

Consumers to Each Other Connects Them to Your
The Connection Proclivity in women starts
early. When asked, How was school today? a girl
usually tells her mother every detail of what
happened, while a boy might grunt, Fine.
What If What if ExxonMobil or Shell dipped
into their credit card database to help commuting
women interview and make a choice of car pool
partners?What if American Express made a
concerted effort to connect up female
empty-nesters through on-line and off-line
programs, geared to help women re-enter the
workforce with todays skills?EVEolution

STATEMENT OF PHILOSOPHY I am a businessperson.
An analyst. A pragmatist. The enormous social
good of increased womens power is clear to me
but it is not my bailiwick. My game is
haranguing business leaders about my fact-based
conviction that womens increasing power
leadership skills and purchasing power is the
strongest and most dynamic force at work in the
American economy today. Dare I say it as a
long-time Palo Altan THIS IS EVEN BIGGER THAN
27 March 2000 email to TP from Shelley Rae
Norbeck I make 1/3rd more money than my
husband does. I have as much financial pull in
the relationship as he does. Id say this is also
true of most of my women friends. Someone should
wake up, smell the coffee and kiss our asses long
enough to sell us something! We have money to
spend and nobody wants it!
