Step 5: find “how”


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

Step 5: find “how”

  1. Step 3: find "where"
    At our disposal were interesting data that deserve to be studied. However, the fact that any of the players prevails in a particular industry was not of particular interest. Much more we wanted to see where business lines intersect, where companies act alone, and where the “brand equity” is in the structure of their revenues. 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 of all sift it in search of information about the players, namely the competitors mentioned. During the study, the names of seven companies constantly surfaced. We've already heard about the three - it is Bloomberg, Reuters and McGraw-Hill. And four to this time unknown for us were Reed Elsevier, Pearson, Wolters Kluwer and the last, but no less important - Thomson. Knowledge of
  3. Step 4: find the answer to “when”
    The scheme we created showed only one point in time - 2001, the year of the survey. We had a kind of snapshot that said: “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 a tool for "live" drawing in POWER POINT
    Although the tablet I use allows me to draw directly on the screen (which greatly simplifies the process), you can use a regular computer mouse for this purpose. The fact that virtually any version of Power Point released in the last five years allows you to draw on the screen is nothing new. Here’s how it’s done: I. Create your own slides just like usual
  5. The value of the team for teens and their desire to find their place in it
    We have already said that the groups of the 5th — 8th grades occupy a different place in the squad and school than the collectives of the primary classes. Teenage pupils constitute the main asset of the pioneer squad and play a leading role in pioneering self-government. And this is understandable: younger schoolchildren cannot yet be in such a role, since it requires much greater intellectual and personal maturity. School life
  6. Analytical Paralysis: Step II
    Upon returning to the room, we headed back to the whiteboards with the following question: If there was only one step in the process that we could change with the improved spreadsheet, then what could it be? After a heated discussion, we agreed that if we could give the presidents a more flexible way of selecting and presenting data during the meeting with CF0, this would provide
  7. Step 2: Answer the question “how much”
    After we identified the players and understood what they were doing, they returned to the documents to find quantitative data about each - something that allows changing “how much”. After examining 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 the value of annual income. Here are the results of seven companies with
  8. Analytical Paralysis: Step I
    Just as in the case of the first napkin and the first day of work, we started with a circle and gave it a name. And, as in the case of the second napkin (on the second day), we created a circle called “who”. Since each employee ultimately responds to the CFO (CF0), analysts considered him 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 in my father?
    You ask if this is normal, and I will answer you: “Yes, for you, it seems to be normal.” Each determines the norms individually, depending on their views. There are no identical standards for all. Modern society is trying to govern us, in terms of “normal” and “abnormal”, but what is normal for one is not necessarily normal for another. Changing our stereotypes, we
  10. Squash step by step
    All parts of your breast pump may scare at first, but learning to use it is not difficult at all. Follow these basic guidelines to express milk for your baby. 1. Get ready. Assemble the parts of the breast pump. If you are using your pump for the first time, follow the instructions attached to it for washing and / or sterilization before use. Sit on a comfortable chair
  11. The third step: an invasive strategy
    Cardiac catheterization is recommended as a means of preventing the complications of the disease and assessing a delayed prognosis. The need and urgency of an invasive strategy is established after determining the risk and assigning patients to one of 3 groups: conservative, early invasive or urgent invasive. CONSERVATIVE STRATEGY Patients who fully meet the following criteria
  12. Analytical Paralysis: Step III
    At the end of the first day of work with the whiteboards, we went home, thinking about possible options for interface design. The next day we erased the drawing created the day before (after photographing each element in detail) *, and then sketched out ideas on what the spreadsheet might look like, based on the team’s collective opinion on where the technology could be through
  13. Step 6: Meeting the cost of several million
    We were so heavily charged with clarity and simplicity of the schedule that we could not wait for the moment when we returned to Thomson and share our conclusions. Apparently, the representatives of Thomson felt about the same thing - just before the start of our presentation, Dick Harrington suddenly asked if he could attend the meeting. We brought with us a huge printout of graphics to
  14. Step 1. Preparation of consciousness: entry into the program
    Functional medicine is a medicine of wide views, drawing knowledge from ancient sources, and using the most advanced technologies if necessary. Each time, intending to improve any aspect of your life, you first draw up a plan of action and prepare for their implementation. My program is no exception to this rule. Although it is quite simple to follow it, after
  15. Step 3. Preparation of the body: exclusion of irritants
    Before you begin to detoxify and restore the body, it is necessary to do some preparatory work. A few days of the elimination diet before starting the program, your body will get rid of products and chemicals that may cause allergic reactions or hypersensitivity, and release energy for detoxification. Reducing exposure to toxins
  16. First step: assessment on admission
    In most patients, only chest discomfort (chest pain) can be identified, the suspicion of acute coronary syndrome is a preliminary diagnosis. The initial examination includes ¦ Detailed survey and accurate description of symptoms. Physical examination is necessary taking into account the possible presence of valvular heart disease (aortic stenosis), hcmp, HF and lung disease.
  17. Step 2. Preparing life: daily routine
    In some respects, it is more convenient to carry out my detox program at home than at a wellness center, but this is fraught with certain difficulties. It is difficult to give up perennial habits, but the hardest thing to change the diet. When you have to make such sacrifices, we become sullen and irritable. Although the program solves health problems at a biochemical level, it needs reliable
  18. The fourth step: the definition of methods of revascularization
    If there is no critical damage to the coronary vessels in the angiograms, the patient is prescribed medication, while the diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome is specified. Of course, the absence of angiographic signs of damage to the coronary vessels cannot serve as a pretext for making a diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome in the presence of ischemia symptoms, confirmed by biomarkers. In these
