Hiring the best people

“You can’t send a duck to eagle school”

You have to admit,  when you saw the headline of Colin Thompson’s short article. Ducks? Eagles? What’s this to do with business? But you will be simply stunned by the truth behind this kind of funny sentence. What about you? Do you think you can train a duck to become an eagle?

A few years ago I had lunch with a top executive from a company known for their legendary retail service. My wife and I are both huge fans, and over lunch I shared with him some of the great service stories his people had provided the Thompson family.
I said, “With the service your people give…you must have a training manual 2 inches thick.”
He looked up and said, “Colin, we do not have a training manual. What we do is find the best people we can find and we empower them to do whatever it takes to satisfy the customer.”
Then he said something I’ll never forget. He said, “We learned a long time ago that you cannot send a duck to eagle school.” Read the complete article on hiring the best peolple written by top executive Colin Thompson Continue reading

Case Study: Swiss-Indian Software Development

Swiss-Indian Co-operation in the Area of Offshore Software Development

Written By Waseem Hussain

In the mid 1990s, large corporations in Europe and the USA realized there was a huge lack of skilled software engineers. The need to solve the Y2K problem within a short timeframe, combined with unsuccessful education policies of the respective governments were two of the major causes for the increased demand. In addition, the gaining impetus of globalization produced a common management dogma:
„Speed up at high tech but low cost, and grow along large scales.”

Also Subcom of the erstwhile National Transport Group (NT Group) followed this trend. To quote a senior manager’s public presentation: “The Customer is demanding more, faster and at better prices while Subcom is struggling to recruit specialists in reason- able time to satisfy this demand.” Continue reading

Top Executive File: Hiring the “A” Team

Hiring the “A” Team: The Right Ingredients for Recruiting Success

Written by Chris Chambers

There’s no doubt that the well-established race for talent will continue to intensify. Shifting demographics are significantly impacting the composition of the talent pool, to the harsh extent that some companies are even leaving positions unfilled because they cannot locate the “perfect fit” candidates. Yet, in this global economy where the most critical competitive differentiators are derived from a higher performing workforce, this approach simply isn’t viable. Continue reading

Improve sales performance

Customers are now smarter at buying than the salesmen are at selling. Tips for Improve sales performance

by Ray Cote You may have read one or more of the thousands of books currently available on how to improve sales performance. With so many books advising on how to be great at sales, you may be forgiven for wondering why there are so few talented salespeople out there.

You see, the thing is, in the last 40 years there have been no significant advances in sales techniques. Virtually all were built on a foundation E.K. Strong laid down in 1925. Any “new way” of selling can be mapped to one of 4 approaches that were first promulgated in the 1960’s. Procurement methods have changed – but selling methods have stood still. If a company is not hitting its sales targets it may be due to one or more of the following problems:  Continue reading

Innovation & International Growth

Innovation & International Growth: what is key to open new markets?

Are Innovation & International Growth linked together? Some say yes, others think no.  Olivier Pujol looked at this question and shares his findings in his top executive file. “The Global Innovation Index 2011 indicates that countries like France and Italy are lagging behind other equivalent countries in terms of innovation. However, these countries demonstrate a capability to innovate in many fields. Recently, the French Business Confederation has expressed the concern that French SMEs seemed less capable than others to grow internationally. And the Global Innovation Index ranks France very low for services export (like Italy). The latter could explain the former: innovation without export remains confidential and has little chance to succeed and generate profitable business. But exporting is not easy. It takes the willingness to approach each market as a totally new market, in terms of customers, distribution and competition. Innovative companies must enrich their culture with international business culture, mixing foreigners and locals at executive level. Export is a necessity Some very large countries have a domestic market large enough to generate significant revenue and economies of scale, ie: profitability. But in many countries, home markets are not large enough to turn innovation into profitability: international growth is a necessity. Some countries, like former Commonwealth countries, or from the former USSR have a very favorable access to a selected international market. But for most European countries, their previously fast growing domestic markets are not sufficient today in a context of international competition. Language is a barrier that can be overcome as the Dutch and the Scandinavian have demonstrated. In some countries, export is almost in the genes of the population (Singapore, the Netherlands, Ireland, Belgium…). And they are successful. But other countries do not have the culture to do so, even though they don’t really have a choice: export is a matter of survival today.” …READ MORE
