Below, is an excerpt from the book, Com­pet­ing For The Future, by Gary Hamel and C.K. Pra­ha­lad. It ties in nicely with my last post on SWOT Analy­sis. You don’t want to make the mis­take of dis­miss­ing any­thing these two bril­liant minds on busi­ness strat­egy have to say as mel­liflu­ous poppycock.

An acronym for – Strengths, Weak­nesses, Oppor­tu­ni­ties, Threats – SWOT (though some mar­ket­ing gurus pre­fer the dyslexic ver­sion of it; TOWS) has become an indis­pens­able tool for busi­nesses that pos­sess a mod­icum of aware­ness of its profit-generating potential.

What’s Spanish For Shoes And Tweets Like A Canary?

by Kevin Singarayar on August 3, 2008

Zappos.com is an online shoe ven­dor with a rep­u­ta­tion, and an excel­lent one at that. With three-quarters of its sales stem­ming from repeat cus­tomers, you needn’t be bang­ing your head against the book­case to fig­ure out why that’s so — *hint* (its got noth­ing to do with shoes). But you already knew that, so let me just put it out there for the rest of us igloos — awe­some cus­tomer service.

I don’t usu­ally do this. Com­ment on arti­cles penned by sports jour­nal­ists. Maybe, it’s because I under­stand where they’re com­ing from. They need to be awfully skewed in their assess­ments (I’m gen­er­al­iz­ing of course) to sell their papers. Rile up emo­tions amongst sports fans and wham! — they’ve swirled a whirlpool of con­tro­ver­sies to start tongues wagging.

How­ever, when a foot­ball jour­nal­ist gets it so wrong about a club (Liv­er­pool) I’ve sup­ported as a child, I feel obliged to respond. The jour­nal­ist in ques­tion is Ken­neth Goh, a foot­ball cor­re­spon­dent whose col­umn appears in a local news­pa­per aptly called — Today.

The title of his piece — Rob­bie Keane’s No Tor­res. Bril­liant. At this point, he needn’t have con­tin­ued, because every Liv­er­pool fan knows that.

Fer­nando Tor­res is cur­rently the most fear­some striker in the game. His goal, which won Spain the Euro 2008 con­firmed that. So, why did Ken­neth even attempt to jux­ta­pose Keane’s cal­i­bre against Tor­res’? To dis­credit him­self as a gen­uine foot­ball cor­re­spon­dent? At least that was the impres­sion I got from the headline.

No mat­ter, I fig­ured the head­line was prob­a­bly a tongue-in-cheek attention-grabber for what would actu­ally be a mag­nan­i­mous eval­u­a­tion of Liverpool’s acqui­si­tion of Keane. I couldn’t have been more wrong.
