(February 2013) It’s amazing how often senior executives conclude that their problems are simply a function of a decline in their core markets - - and how often boards accept that conclusion. The underlying belief is that leaders should find the “best” industries and put their companies in a position to compete in them. There’s bound to be greener grass somewhere, isn’t there? The idea that some industries are superior -- a view promulgated by Wall Street analysts, media pundits, and managers’ own human tendency to look for “easier” businesses - - is illusory. A big reason not to shift industries: one decade’s leaders can become the next decade’s laggards.
(February 2013) Avigdor Lieberman stands trial in Israel, Cyprus and Ecuador hold presidential elections and the European parliament's environmental committee votes on carbon markets plus science and technology.
