Global Megatrends Demography is destiny Globalisation Urbanisation
Conventional Wisdom vs Visionary Alternative Slums are natural, they are inevitable Slums are created artificially, needlessly Space is scarce; so, only a minimal space should be allowed even for the rich Only when the rich get large spaces can the poor hope to get their due Rural-urban migration is inevitable Rural-urban migration is unnecessary Capital creates jobs Employers create jobs Rural poor will migrate to cities only Rural poor follow wherever employers go Employers like only CBDs Basically, employers seek connectivity only Cities alone can supply large connectivity Dedicated bus lanes linking a loop of villages can provide similar connectivity Business must be at the city centre and residences far off at the periphery Businesses can be distributed around the loop and located close to residences Space is scarce, hence expensive. So, poor can have slums only Space is in surplus; so, land prices can be made low enough for the poor to afford
Need for a Strategy Past strategies wont carry you through the next decade. Before developing an effective strategy ask: What’s happening in the industry? What’s my position in the industry? Some companies do better that others irrespective of industry. Competitive forces include existing competition, new entrants, bargaining power of suppliers, tenants and investors.
Current Issues Current success based on a very favorable environment. Entry barriers low, so a lot of new competition coming in. Development for a fee is emerging. Investors backward integrating to become developers. Real estate advisors helping increase landlord returns. Tenants, investors and suppliers becoming smarter and more sophisticated. Most developers still doing deals without a strategy.
Future - Focus Have a sustainable competitive advantage. Cost or differentiation. Cost: Finance, develop and deliver at a lower cost. Differentiation: Unique skills that help in premium pricing. Decide on scope – project, location and tenant. Different industries vary in profitability and its hard to have a competitive advantage in everything.
