Competitive Intelligence: Check Your Sparkplugs (or 10 signs of impending failure)

I was eighteen years old, fiercely independent and ready to go to college. We were living in Wyoming at the time and the college was in Florida. The long road trip ahead of me was the first one that I had ever undertaken by myself. I would have to make all the preparations beforehand, all of the decisions along the way and, of course, I was responsible for how I performed in school.



But first my trusty VW Bug had to get me… Continue

Competitive Intelligence from a Capture Manager's viewpoint

After leading a major capture for 4 years I think I picked up a few pointers on the value of Competitive Intelligence and Competitive Analysis. Obviously, the links between developing win themes, ghosting strategies and a PTW approach are the major areas, but later when working a major proposal, I found that having good CI/CA on hand is extremely important.

Competitive Intelligence, Government Acquisitions, and a Hallucinogenic Future

With the bankruptcy of General Motors, our economy has finally hopped over the plane’s wing into the Twilight Zone. Not that this event was surprising to anybody with a cursory interest in money or cars - GM bet its future on the world’s endless thirst for bloated Hummers and Yukons and left quality and disruptive innovation to Asian rivals, all while locked into being America’s largest private provider of healthcare and pensions. You can get six Jack Welches, ten Peter Druckers and those guys… Continue

Chase - California Dreaming

During the Chase investor day last week, Charlie Scharf (CEO of Retail Financial Services) made comments that were as good as I’ve heard in probably two years. Scharf suggested he can see the peak of home equity losses. That’s not all, Scharf also said he also sees a bottom forming in the California market. If I was just dreaming, please don’t wake me!











Scharf sounded more like a Chief Credit Officer than the head of retail banking. Scharf spent the majority of… Continue
