中国人是有血性的!

这几天跟同在IE读书的朋友聊起今年我国接连发生的不幸:雪灾,奥运火炬传递,地震。从悲伤,气愤,到全国许多年来从未有过的团结一致,引用众网友的话:“中国有希望了”。个人也非常赞同朋友的结论:中国人是有血性的!
中国人太平盛世的时候喜欢窝里斗,遇到委屈和不幸的时候多半能忍则忍,但是从古至今一旦大敌当前,有损我华夏子孙和大国尊严了,中国人的血性就完全被激发了!这时候的中国,就像你在这些视频里看到的,是一个最最强大的中国!
只要同是我中华同胞,无论今日身在何处,是何国籍,我们既然同是炎黄子孙,势必同舟共济!!
我们这几天也在Serrano 99号1楼设了捐款箱,有在读MBA的中国学生已经带头发动了在IE校园的捐款。
精诚所致,金石为开!
沉痛悼念我50,000多名遇难同胞!(数字还在直线上升……)

Model-based Competition

1510.jpgMay 2008 | By José Almagro. Executive Chairman. Bayes Inference S.A. and Professor at IE Business School

Companies that adopt a modelling strategy to anticipate, identify and satisfy customersâ?? requirements will not only obtain basic competitive advantages over companies that do not, they will end up pushing them out of the market.

My theory goes like this: companies that adopt a modelling strategy to anticipate, identify and satisfy customersâ?? requirements will not only obtain basic competitive advantages over companies that do not, they will actually push them out of the market.

The modelling strategy is not just another strategy in a repertoire of feasible options, but rather a controlling strategy. This dominance is due to two coordinates. Firstly, given a certain set of activities, the use of models produces optimum combinations and is therefore the most effective way of organizing said set of activities.

Secondly, companies equipped with this strategy are more innovative and reduce the costs associated with misguided innovations. In short, operational and economic efficiency, early diagnosis of market, customer and policy trends, and innovative drive constitute the three key factors that turn a modelling strategy into a controlling strategy.
