RADICAL STRATEGIES REQUIRED
Where does the Internet rank in priority? Its No. 1, 2, 3, and 4. Jack Welch
One cannot be tentative about this. Excuses like channel conflict or marketing and sales arent 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]
Jargon Bath! Bureaucracy free … Systemically integrated … Internet intense … Knowledge based … Time and location free … Instantly responsive … Customer centric … Mass customization enabled.
Translation … Bureaucracy free = Flat org, no B.S. Systemically integrated = Whole supply chain tightly wired/ friction free Internet intense = Do it all via the Web Knowledge based = Open access Time and location free = Whenever, wherever Instantly responsive = Speed demons Customer centric = Customer calls the shots Mass customization enabled = Every product and service rapidly tailored to client requirements
Message: There is no such thing as an effective B2B or Internet-supply chain strategy in a low-trust, bottlenecked- communication, six-layer organization.
WebWorld = Everything Web as a way to run your business innards Web as connector for your entire supply-demand chain Web as spiders web which re-conceives the industry Web/B2B as ultimate wake-up call to commodity producers Web as the scourge of slack, inefficiency, sloth, bureaucracy, poor customer data Web as an Encompassing Way of Life Web = Everything (P.D. to after-sales) Web forces you to focus on what you do best Web as entrée, at any size, to Worlds Best at Everything as next door neighbor
Supply Chain 2000: When Joe Employee at Company X launches his browser, hes taken to Company Xs personalized home page. He can interact with the entire scope of Company Xs 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. The real trick is that Joe Employee, business partners and customers dont have to be in the office. They can log on from their own cell phone, Palm Pilot, pager or home office system. Red Herring ( )
There is no use trying, said Alice. One cant believe impossible things. I daresay you havent had much practice, said the Queen. When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes Ive believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast. Lewis Carroll
The Web … A DREAMERS MEDIUM!
Inet … … allows you to dream dreams you could never have imagined before!
It is real! It is Life and Death! Dream BIG! Start Now! Study Hard! Play Hard! Play Fast! Go on Offense! Hire great folks! (They aint cheap. They are young!) Dont cut corners on infrastructure! Rem: Age of the Never Satisfied Customer! We aint seen nothin yet!
Banking is necessary. Banks are not. Dick Kovacevich, Norwest/ Wells
