John Roth’s “Rules” [Nortel]1. Our strategies must be tied toleading-edge customers on the attack.2. Time cannot be sacrificedfor better quality, lower cost, or even better decisions.3. It doesn’t matter whether you develop or acquire leading technology.Our job is to provide the technology and products our customers need.4. Success is achieved byleading change, not waiting for it.5. We are paranoid about our leadership– willing to cannibalize our own products to maintain our edge.Source: Abridged from The Wall Street Journal (07.25.00)

“Acquisitions are about buying market share. Our challenge is to create markets. There is a big difference.”Peter Job, CEO, Reuters


“Our ideal acquisition is a small startup that has a great technology product on the drawing board that is going to come out in six to twelve months. We buy the engineers and the next generation product. …” John Chambers, Cisco

[Pervasive “Risk Markets”“For a dollar a month, an Ohio insurance company will rent you a GPS receiver to install in your car. As part of your policy, it signals how often, when, and which highways you drive and into which neighborhoods you go.

Brand InsideBrand Work: The Professional Service Firm Model & The WOW Project


So what will be the Basic Building Block of theNew Org?

Every job done in W.C.W. is also done “outside” … for profit!


Credo“WORK WORTH PAYING FOR”


C.I.O. to C.E.F.R.N.S.*


*ChiefEvangelistForReallyNeat Stuff


Messages:Every Dept. = PSFOr Get Outsourced/ eAutomated.Now.Do or Die!


The Raw Material … The WOW Project!


“Reward excellent failures. Punish mediocre successes.”Phil Daniels, Sydney exec


“You really got to me. So many of our information technology projects take on a life of their own, and I know they’ll never end up as more than ‘mediocre successes.’ ” CEO, F100 financial services company (10-98)


Measures

  • WOW!

  • Beauty!

  • Raving Fans!

  • Impact!


“Every project we take on starts with a question: How can we do what’s never been done before?”Stuart Hornery, CEO, Lend Lease


T.T.D.sThe next slide is the first of many “T.T.D.” activities. I.e.: Things To Do, shorthand forms of training exercises I use. Also: Many of these T.T.D. slides, as well as most of the “Stuff That Matters” section, have accompanying Notes. (Use Normal View to access.)Tom Peters


T.T.D.: Now!

  • List all projects

  • Carefully describe a “WOW Outcome” for you and the Client

  • Score (!)all projects on WOW, Beauty, Impact, Raving Fan-hood

  • Pick one project with a high combined score

  • Draft a one-page New Description that emphasizes WOW, Beauty, etc.

  • Circulate and edit … for three days

  • Reduce to 5 bullet points


Brand InsideBrand You: Distinct … or Extinct


2010 “Demographics”:By 2010, full-time workers will be in the minoritySource: MIT study (28August2000)


DISTINCT … OR EXTINCT!“If there is nothing very special about your work, no matter how hard you apply yourself, you won’t get noticed and that increasingly means you won’t get paid much, either.” Michael Goldhaber, Wired

R.D.A.Rate: 15%?, 25%?Therefore: Formal “Investment Strategy”/R.I.P.


T.T.D./Your R.I.P.IS IT … FORMAL? IS IT ... WOW!?


“You must realize that how you invest your human capital matters as much as how you invest your financial capital. Its rate of return determines your future options. Take a job for what it teaches you, not for what it pays. Instead of a potential employer asking, ‘Where do you see yourself in 5 years?’ you’ll ask, ‘If I invest my mental assets with you for 5 years, how much will they appreciate?How much will my portfolio of career options grow?’ ”Stan Davis & Christopher Meyer, futureWEALTH


T.T.D./R.I.P.Use by yourself.Use with your mates.Use [quantitatively?] as a measure of departmental/ P.S.F. renewal.Use in formal eval process.

Brand InsideBrand Talent: The Great War for Talent


There is no “talent shortage” … if…you are a GPTW**Great Place To Work


The Case


“When land was the scarce resource, nations battled over it. The same is happening now for talented people.”Stan Davis & Christopher Meyer, futureWEALTH


“Seller’s Market”: Tomorrow’s Headline*“Molecular biologists are up 3 points, economists down 1/4, in moderate trading”*futureWEALTH, Stan Davis and Christopher Meyer


The Talent Ten


Obsession! Greatness! Performance!Pay!Youth!Diversity!Women!Weird!Opportunity!Leading Genius!


ObsessionP.O.T.* = All Consuming*Pursuit of Talent


From “1, 2 or 3” [JW] to …“Best talent in each industry segment to build best proprietary intangibles”[EM]Source: Ed Michaels, War for Talent (05.17.00)


2. GreatnessOnly The Best!


Home Depot:7 new growth initiatives ($20B to $100B in 5-7 years)Arthur Blank: BEST PERSON IN THE WORLD TO HEAD EACH INITIATIVEE.g.: COO of IKEA to head international expansionEd Michaels, War for Talent (05.17.00)


3. PerformanceUp or out!


“We believe companies can increase their market cap 50 percent in 3 years. Steve Macadam at Georgia Pacificchanged 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 Michaels, War for Talent (05.17.00)


4. PayFork Over!


“Top performing companies are two to four times more likely than the rest to pay what it takes to prevent losing top performers.”Ed Michaels, War for Talent (05.17.00)


5. YouthGrovel Before the Young!


“This is the Age of Ageism: The real innovator’s dilemma isn’t ‘disruptive technologies;’ it’s the relentless rise of the quasi-adolescents who wield them.”Michael Schrage


“A good plant engineer in a paper mill may create $100K to $300K in value per year. An outstanding software product developer may create a product worth $1M to $300M. Talented people are less likely to wait their turn. We used to view young people as trainees; now they are authorities.Arguably this is the first time the older generation can – and must – leverage the younger generation very early in their careers.”Ed Michaels, War for Talent (05.17.00)


“Talent” and a $2Tenterprise??????


6. DiversityMess Rules!


“Where do good new ideas come from?That’s simple! From differences. Creativity comes from unlikely juxtapositions. The best way to maximize differences is to mix ages, cultures and disciplines.”Nicholas Negroponte


“Diversity defines the health and wealth of nations in a new century. Mighty is the mongrel. … The hybrid is hip. The impure, the mélange, the adulterated, the blemished, the rough, the black-and-blue, the mix-and-match – these people are inheriting the earth. Mixing is the new norm. Mixing trumps isolation. It spawns creativity, nourishes the human spirit, spurs economic growth and empowers nations.”G. Pascal Zachary, The Global Me: New Cosmopolitans and the Competitive Edge


7. WomenBorn to Lead!


Women and new-economy management …


The New Economy …Shout goodbye to “command and control”!Shout goodbye to hierarchy!Shout goodbye to “knowing one’s place”!


Women’s Stuff =New Economy MatchImprov skillsRelationship-centricLess “rank consciousness”Self determinedTrust sensitive IntuitiveNatural “empowerment freaks” [less threatened by strong people]Intrinsic [motivation] > Extrinsic


“TAKE THIS QUICK QUIZ: Who manages more things at once? Who puts more effort into their appearance? Who usually takes care of the details? Who finds it easier to meet new people? Who asks more questions in a conversation? Who is a better listener? Who has more interest in communication skills? Who is more inclined to get involved? Who encourages harmony and agreement? Who has better intuition? Who works with a longer ‘to do’ list? Who enjoys a recap to the day’s events? Who is better at keeping in touch with others?”Source: Selling Is a Woman’s Game: 15 Powerful Reasons Why Women Can Outsell Men, Nicki Joy & Susan Kane-Benson


“Boys are trained in a way that will make them irrelevant.”Phil Slater


It’s Girls, Stupid!1996: 8.4M women, 6.7M men in college (est: 9.2 to 6.9 in 2007); more women than men in high-level math and science coursesMore girls in student govt., honor societies; girls read more books, outperform boys in artistic and musical ability, study abroad in higher numbersBoys do rule: crime, alcohol, drugs, failure to do homework (4:1)Source: The Atlantic Monthly (May2000)


8. WeirdThe Cracked Ones Let in the Light!


The Cracked Ones Let in the Light“Our business needs a massive transfusion of talent, and talent, I believe, is most likely to be found among non-conformists, dissenters and rebels.”David Ogilvy


“He grew his hair long, played guitar in a rock band, chased girls, got into trouble. At age 17 he was flogged by his house master, who described him as ‘the most difficult boy I’ve ever had to deal with.’ ”


Solution?Slip Ritalin into his food … Or …


Elect Him Prime MinisterTony Blair**talk/May 2000


Axiom:Never hire anyone without an aberration in their background.(Find the One Ton Cookie Man!)


9. OpportunityMake It an Adventure!


“H.R.” to “H.E.D.” ???HumanEnablement Department


“Firms will not ‘manage the careers’ of their employees. They will provide opportunities to enable the employee to develop identity and adaptability and

thus be in charge of his or her own career.”

Tim Hall et al., “The New Protean Career Contract”


“The challenge for IBM, AT&T and other mainstream companies is to re-instill a sense of adventure in recruits.”Burke Stinson, AT&T


10. Leading GeniusIt’s All Theater All the Time!


The Creative Arts: Acquisition & Development of Talent = AllBalletSymphonyTheaterSportsCombat


Alan Kay on PARC’s Bob Taylor“He was a connoisseur of talent.”


Employee retention and satisfaction: Overwhelmingly, based on their immediatemanager!Source: Marcus Buckingham & Curt Coffman, First, Break All the Rules: What the World’s Greatest Managers Do Differently


44 Players = 44 Projects = 44 different success measures = 44 different styles (of you) One [if lucky] “1 in 10 years”[Scout: Great career = 1 sleeper find]


Exec: Can we really use individualized evaluations for everyone?TP: We do routinely for “Top 25,” so why not? Few supervisors have more than 10 folks directly reporting to them. True, there’d have to be some bounds. I guess. But why not a $60,000 housekeeper who sets the character of a full floor of a $150,000,000 hotel property?


Insights from 80,000 managers:“People don’t change much.“Don’t waste time trying to put in what was left out.“Try to draw out what was left in.“That is hard enough.”Source: Marcus Buckingham & Curt Coffman, First, Break All the Rules: What the World’s Greatest Managers Do Differently

Is It …“The Oh-Shit-I-Wish-It-Were-Over Memorial Day picnic”or “The First Annual Seriously Kewl Celebration of Our Incredible Staff”


Is It …Wrestle the damn Safety Manual into line with the ridiculous new OSHA Regs?Or …A stealth opportunity to address the War for Talent via … a thoroughgoing review of how safety and environmental issues contribute to making this a Great Place to Work?


Is It …Fix these bloody customer problems that have cropped up with the new 2783B?Or …A chance to work with a hotshot, young division GM on …using the Internet/Internet Speed to revisit the entire process of how we get customer input – before and during the fact – into the heart of the Product Design Process?


Reframers’ Rules:Rule 1:Never accept an assignment as given! (Please.)Rule 2:You’re never so powerful as when you are “powerless”!Rule 3:Every “small” project contains the entire enterprise DNA!


III. THE TOOLPrototypingMania!


Culture of Prototyping“Effective prototyping may be the most valuable core competence an innovative organization can hope to have.”Michael Schrage

Forces @ Work IIThe Commodity Trap

Brand OutsideStrategy 1:Lead the Customer!


“If you worship at the throne of the voice of the customer, you’ll get only incremental advances.”Joseph Morone, President, Bentley College


“Our strategies must be tied to leading edge customers on the attack. If we focus on the defensive customers, we will also become defensive.”John Roth, CEO, Nortel


Lucent Stumbles!Cause(s): (1) Listening to BIGGEST, SLUGGISH customers. (2) Failing to exploit the Web internally or externallySource: Business Week (08.07.00)

RADICAL STRATEGIES REQUIRED


“Where does the Internet rank in priority? It’s No. 1, 2, 3, and 4.”Jack Welch


“One cannot be tentative about this. Excuses like ‘channel conflict’ or ‘marketing and sales aren’t ready’ cannot be allowed. Delay and you risk being cut out of your own market, perhaps not by traditional competitors but by companies you never heard of 24 months ago.”Jack Welch [07.00/Forbes.com]


ACT NOW, ACT FAST, KEEP ACTING


“It’s better to be first with less than last with more. Success on the Web isn’t just about time to market, it’s also about‘time to learning.’ ”Jeff Levy, eHatchery


SUMMARY I: REINVENT EVERYTHING


WebWorld = EverythingWeb as a way to run your business’ innardsWeb as connector for your entire supply-demand chainWeb as “spider’s web” which re-conceives the industryWeb/B2B as ultimate wake-up call to “commodity producers”Web as the scourge of slack, inefficiency, sloth, bureaucracy, poor customer dataWeb as an Encompassing Way of LifeWeb = Everything (P.D. to after-sales)Web forces you to focus on what you do bestWeb as entrée, at any size, to World’s Best at Everything as next door neighbor


“Supply Chain” 2000:“When Joe Employee at Company X launches his browser, he’s taken to Company X’s personalized home page. He can interact with the entire scope of Company X’s 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. And Joe Employee, business partners and customers don’t have to be in the office. They can log on from their own cell phone, Palm Pilot, pager or home office system.”Red Herring (09.2000)


Message:eCommerce is not a technology play! It is a relationship, partnership, organizational and communications play, made possible by new technologies.


Message:There is no such thing as an effective B2B or Internet-supply chain strategy in a low-trust, bottlenecked-communication, six-layer organization.


SUMMARY II: A DREAMER’S MEDIUM!


“There is no use trying,” said Alice. “One can’t believe impossible things.” “I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”Lewis Carroll


I’net …… allows you to dream dreams you could never have imagined before!


“Banking is necessary. Banks are not.”Dick Kovacevich, Norwest/ Wells


“It” is real! It is “Life and Death”!Dream BIG!Start Now! Study Hard! Play Hard! Play Fast! Go on Offence!Hire great folks! (They ain’t cheap. They are young!)Don’t cut corners on infrastructure!Rem: “Age of the Never Satisfied Customer”!We ain’t seen nothin’ yet!

The Organization: Seller’s [Talent] Market


“A good plant engineer in a paper mill may create $100K to $300K in value per year. An outstanding software product developer may create a product worth $1M to $300M. Talented people are less likely to wait their turn. We used to view young people as trainees; now they are authorities. Arguably this is the first time the older generation can – and must – leverage the younger generation very early in their careers”Ed Michaels, War for Talent (05.17.00)

Brand OutsideStrategy 8 & Summary:BRANDPOWER!


Brand It!Now, More Than Ever!“The increasing difficulty in differentiating between products and the speed with which competitors take up innovations will assist in the rise and rise of the brand.”Gillian Law and Nick Grant, Management [New Zealand]


Scott Bedbury/ Nike, Starbucks“A Great Brand taps into emotions. Emotions drive most, if not all, of our decisions. A brand reaches out with a powerful connecting experience. It’s an emotional connecting point that transcends the product.“A Great Brand is a story that’s never completely told. A brand is a metaphorical story that connects with something very deep - a fundamental appreciation of mythology. Stories create the emotional context people need to locate themselves in a larger experience.”


“We are in the twilight of a society based on data. As information and intelligence become the domain of computers, society will place more value on the one human ability that cannot be automated: emotion. Imagination, myth, ritual - the language of emotion - will affect everything from our purchasing decisions to how we work with others.Companies will thrive on the basis of their stories and myths.Companies will need to understand that their products are less important than their stories.”Rolf Jensen, Copenhagen Institute for Future Studies


“In the funky village, real competition no longer revolves around marketshare. We are competing for attention – mindshare and heartshare.”Kjell Nordstrom and Jonas Ridderstrale, Funky Business


Brand = You Must Care!“Success means never letting the competition define you. Instead you have to define yourself based on a point of view you care deeply about.”Tom Chappell, Tom’s of Maine


Brand = Special = Passion = Plot = Compelling Mythology = Cause = Connection = Heart


Rules of “Radical Marketing”Love + Respect Your Customers!Hire only Passionate Missionaries!Create a Community of Customers!Celebrate Craziness!Be insanely True to the Brand!Sam Hill & Glenn Rifkin, Radical Marketing(e.g., Harley, Virgin, The Dead, HBS, NBA)

What Can [Can’t] Be Branded?“Branding is not a problem if you have the right mentality. You go to your team and you pin up a $200 Swiss Army Watch. Competing in the ridiculously crowded sub-$200 watch market, they made it into a brand name, named after the most irrelevant and useless thing in history [the Swiss Army]. And you say, ‘Gang, if they can do it, we can do it.’ ”Barry Gibbons


“Salt is salt is salt. Right? Not when it comes in a blue box with a picture of a little girl carrying an umbrella.
