Selbstkritik, weil es auch nach gut zwei Jahrzehnten nur wenigen unternehmensinternen Akteuren gelungen ist, sich als strategische Berater ihrer Vorstände zu etablieren - und weil der Verband durchaus öfter die Methoden der eigenen Profession auf sich selbst anwenden könnte und dabei noch viel effektiver wäre (wie man auch an anderer Stelle nachlesen kann). Optimismus, weil damit viel besser der neue Business Development-Fünfjahresplan für den Verband umzusetzen ist.

Hide and seek on the Web
Jay Allen considered his ex-girlfriend a "rabbit in the pot" stalker for the repeatedly nasty comments she posted to his blog. So he tried passive resistance by drawing a virtual curtain around his Web site. The trick, called cloaking, made his blog appear seemingly abandoned to her, while his regular postings were available to anyone else with a Web browser. "I found out the Internet Protocol address (of her computer) and delivered her a static page anytime she visited," said Allen, an author and software developer. "That worked really well, until one day she went to an Internet cafe and found a ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Why Apple's Siri acquisition points to the future of mobile
It was the acquisition of Siri in April that first raised the flags. The deal for somewhere in the region of £200m, according to TechCrunch, gained Apple a small but established app enabling voice command and search for mobile. While it might not seem to compete directly with Google's primary web search tool, anything in search will compete with something Google is working on. And as both Apple and Google have moved further into the mobile space, the two have become increasingly conflicted . (There are subtle indications of the two moving apart; Jobs last week announced that Bing would be added to the iPhone 's search ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Predictive Analytics: Providing the Foresight to Act Preemptively
To stay ahead of the pack, a race car driver must focus on what�s coming ahead while being aware of what�s behind him. But if he spends too much time looking in the rear view mirror, he�s likely to drive off a cliff.

With predictive analytics, companies can now analyze their entire data in real time, making the process more efficient than ever. This expansion of available knowledge has the potential to change business strategies ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

PET kegs - the future of beer distribution to the on-trade ...
Companies such as ecoKeg, KeyKeg and Petainer are marketing non-refillable PET kegs for the distribution of beer, wine and cider, and some major brewers, e.g. Carlsberg and Heineken, have launched dispense systems based on this technology, but currently only target the off-trade and HORECA channels. As one-way PET containers seem to offer potentially significant cost savings (lower weight, no keg tracking, no washing or refilling) and have a lower carbon footprint than metal kegs, will they evenutally replace the latter in on-trade distribution? Seeing as no major brewer seems to have concrete plans of doing so in the immediate ...
B2B Competition Benchmark
I am preparing a major project on competitive benchmark regarding b2b e-business. Our competition sits in chemicals and specialties including all big dogs (as we're one as well). I am planning on some basic anylysis such as Four Corners, Nine Forces and some such aiming to support strategic decisions on a ramp up of our e-business features and offerings to 12'000 industrial customers. I was wondering if anyone around here could point me to some theory support or even tools online.
