Step 5: find "how"


So, we realized where Thomson should be (in the upper open quadrant) and when (in two years). Accordingly, we had the only question to discuss: How can Thomson raise its pyramid? Looking at the graph, we saw an obvious way. Let me show this chart in the form in which we showed it to Dick Harrington (the then director of Thomson), because his reaction to the picture is the most interesting moment in this story.

Step 5: find "how"

  1. Step 3: find "where"
    At our disposal were interesting data that deserved to be studied. However, the very fact of which player dominates in this or that branch, did not represent a special interest. Far more we wanted to see where business lines intersect, where companies operate alone, and where their "brand equity" is in the structure of their income. And for this we needed to draw them all
  2. Step I: find "who and what"
    Having received a huge mountain of data, we first sift it in search of information about the players, namely the mentioned competitors. During the study, the names of seven companies were constantly emerging. We've already heard about three of you - Bloomberg, Reuters and McGraw-Hill. And four before this unknown for us were Reed Elsevier, Pearson, Wolters Kluwer and last but not least important - Thomson. Knowledge of
  3. Step 4: find the answer to the "when"
    The scheme we created showed only one point in time - 2001, the year of the survey. We had a kind of snapshot, saying: "This is how the industry of professional information providers looks like today." But remember that the main purpose of this exercise was to prepare Thomson for the withdrawal of shares on the New York Stock Exchange in 2003, that is, through
  4. How to find the tool for "live" drawing in POWER POINT
    Although the tablet I use gives me the ability to draw directly on the screen (which greatly simplifies the process), you can use the usual computer mouse for this. In the fact that virtually any version of Power Point, released over the past five years, allows you to draw on the screen, there is nothing new. Here's how: 1. Create your own slides the same way as usual
  5. The importance of the collective for teenagers and their desire to find a place in it
    We have already said that the collectives of the V-VIII classes occupy a different place in the squad and school than the collectives of the primary classes. The teenagers are the main asset of the Pioneer squad and play a leading role in the pioneer self-government. And this is understandable: younger schoolchildren can not yet be in such a role, since this requires much more intellectual and personal maturity. Life of the school
  6. Analytical paralysis: step II
    Upon returning to the room, we headed back to the recording boards with the following question: If there was only one step in the process that we could change with an improved spreadsheet, what could it be? After a heated discussion, we agreed that if we could give presidents a more flexible way of selecting and presenting data during the meeting with CF0, this provided
  7. Step 2: answer the question "how much"
    After we identified the players and understood what they were doing, we went back to the documents to find quantitative data about each - something that would change the "how much". Having studied the masses of data, we decided that the first question "how much" that we intend to study will be related to the size of each company in terms of annual revenue. Here are the results of seven companies with
  8. Analytical paralysis: step I
    Just like with the first napkin and the first day of work, we started with a circle and gave it a name. And, as with the second napkin (the second day), we created a circle with the name "who." Since each employee ultimately keeps an answer to the CFO, analysts considered him to be the most important "who", so we called our first round "CF0". Then we drew
  9. Is it normal that I constantly compare friends with my father and try to find in them what I liked about my father?
    You ask whether this is normal, and I will answer you: "Yes, it seems to be normal for you". Each defines the norms individually, depending on their views. There are no identical norms for all. Modern society tries to control us, in terms of "normal" and "abnormal," but what is normal for one is not necessarily normal for another. Changing our stereotypes, we
  10. Expressing: step by step
    All parts of your breast pump can be scared at first, but it's not difficult to learn how to use it. Follow the basic instructions below to express milk for your child. 1. Get ready. Collect the parts of the breast pump. If you are using the pump for the first time, follow the instructions for washing and / or sterilization instructions before use. Sit on a comfortable chair
  11. The third step: an invasive strategy
    Cardiac catheterization is recommended as a means of preventing complications of the disease and assessing the delayed prognosis. The necessity and urgency of the invasive strategy is established after determining the risk and assigning patients to one of three groups: conservative, early invasive or urgent invasive. CONSERVATIVE STRATEGY Patients who fully comply with the following criteria,
  12. Analytical paralysis: step III
    At the end of the first day of work with the recording boards, we went home, thinking about possible options for design of the interface. The next day, we erased the drawing created the day before (after photographing each element in detail), * and then sketched out ideas on how the spreadsheet might look, based on the collective opinion of the team about where the technology might be through
  13. Step 6: meeting at a cost of several million
    We were so heavily loaded with clarity and simplicity of the schedule that we could not wait for the moment when we return to Thomson and share our findings. Apparently, representatives of Thomson felt about the same thing - just before the beginning of our presentation, Dick Harrington suddenly asked if he could attend the meeting. We brought with us a huge printout of the schedule to
  14. Step 1. Preparation of consciousness: entering the program
    Functional medicine is a broad-minded medicine that draws on knowledge from ancient sources, and, if necessary, uses the most advanced technologies. Each time you intend to improve any aspect of your life, you first make an action plan and prepare for their implementation. My program does not constitute an exception to this rule. Although it is quite easy to follow it, after
  15. Step 3. Preparation of the body: exclusion of irritants
    Before you start detoxification and recovery of the body, you need to do some preparatory work. For a few days of elimination diet before the program begins, your body will get rid of foods and chemicals that can cause allergic reactions or increased sensitivity, and will release energy for detoxification. Reduction of exposure to toxins
  16. The first step: assessment on admission
    In most patients, only chest discomfort (chest pain) can be identified, a suspicion of acute coronary syndrome is a preliminary diagnosis. Initial examination includes | A detailed survey and an accurate description of the symptoms. A physical examination is necessary, taking into account the possible presence of heart valve disease (aortic stenosis), HCM, HF, and lung disease.
  17. Step 2. Preparation of life: the daily routine
    In some ways, it is more convenient to carry out my detox program at home than in a wellness center, but this involves some difficulties. It is difficult to give up many years of habits, but the most difficult thing is to change the diet. When we have to make such sacrifices, we become morose and irritable. Although the program addresses health problems at the biochemical level, it needs a reliable
  18. The fourth step: the determination of the technique of revascularization
    If angiograms do not reveal a critical damage to the coronary vessels, the patient is prescribed medication, while clarifying the diagnosis of "acute coronary syndrome." Of course, the absence of angiographic signs of coronary artery damage can not serve as an excuse for the diagnosis of "acute coronary syndrome" in the presence of symptoms of ischemia confirmed by biomarkers. In these
