Probing the Minds of Elected Women Representatives on Village Councils in India

An interesting paper from Samir Sathe, one of CEO Worldwide vetted C-level candidates.

This paper aims to probe the minds of Elected Women Representatives (EWRs) , the harbingers

of change in rural political governance in India. It explores the interrelationships between their

own thoughts, emotions, and behaviours, as well as those of their families, Village Council

(VC) members, and villagers. It describes the influence of these variables on the performance of

EWRs. Based on action research, realist and critical ethnographic methods, including interviews

with 120 EWRs in 19 districts, covering 100 villages, this paper unearths the following nine key Continue reading

The end of the Set-Top Box?

By Didier Zwierski

After the Swiss telecom operator Salt, the French TV operator Canal+ launches a new offer and provides his subscribers with an Apple TV as a terminal, replacing then its own decoder by an App that will give access to Canal+ pay-TV programs and services (see the link below). Is this the coming end of the STB business?

Indeed, for broadband TV (i.e. xDSL, Fiber and Cable – Satellite being of course a different story), in countries where Network PVR is legal, this is a smart way to go : no investment in developing a new terminal, faster – and cheaper – time-to-market, no dependency on a middleware vendor, use of the Apple brand, relying on a first-class partner for a high quality terminal… In the case of Canal+, it allows the pay-TV operator to reach the subscriber independently from the broadband service provider.

How business schools and universities can drive the gender diversity agenda

By CEO Worldwide

Women currently represent 36% of European MBA students and 42% of US MBA students.

However, when they enter the business world, they’ll notice just 22% of board members, and 7% of board presidents, are female.

Are business schools doing enough to push and prioritise gender diversity? For some, the answer is ‘not yet’.

Breaking down enrollment barriers

Without a steady stream of qualified female MBA students, the landscape of senior management is unlikely to change. Some international business schools are working hard to attract more female applicants each academic year. Continue reading

Where are the Women… Capable of being Corporate Directors?

by Viviane Strickfaden

One article among others in France highlights “A scarcity of women with CEO’s experience, one of the profiles that companies are seeking widely for their board of directors”.
This implies that in order to validly exercise a mandate in France, it is almost essential to have managed a company, at least a business unit?
Not to mention the essential financial expertise… Do we often become CEOs after having been CFOs? Not so sure: that’s not the point here.

The purpose is to guide the gaze in another direction, to make people aware that there are many women with demonstrated leadership. All you have to do is look and see, open your eyes wide, even better your ears and your heart. Continue reading

How You Can Grow Your Company Globally

Why your company should be interested in the global market?

Written by Herb Lair

For the same reason that Apple, Starbucks, FedEx, Caterpillar, Microsoft, Walmart, Netflix, McDonalds and others are, most of their future growth will come from that market. In small to medium size companies, it may come as revenue growth or as an opportunity to increase the value of your company, if you and your investors decide to exit.

Netflix recently announced quarterly results. Netflix, again exceeded analyst estimates through moderate US growth, and better than expected international growth. Also note the agreement with Comcast. As you can see Netflix international market is bigger than US market and is quickly widening the gap. Continue reading
