Dave Gardner’s “Thank God It’s Monday” 29NOV10

“Thank God It’s Monday” is to help companies thrive!

This week’s focus:  entrepreneurship

New companies don’t carry the burden of legacy baggage and sacred cows to the marketplace.  They start anew, correcting and improving upon what has come before.

For example, Boeing didn’t expect upstart Airbus to eventually win 50% of its market share.  Airbus, through a common cockpit user interface, made it simpler to train and move cockpit crews from one aircraft to another. The result is airlines using their aircraft are more agile and can expand faster.

China and India are hungry to participate and even dominate in the global economy—it’s their omnipresent, burning desire.  These countries are operating in the fast lane while the U.S. appears flat-footed and bogged down in complacency and indecision. While China and India aren’t executing the strategy perfectly, they’ve not lost sight of the target either.

We need to re-kindle our burning desire, offer incentives to create jobs here in America, create disincentives for outsourcing jobs overseas that are not part of a legitimate global growth strategy, and, not idly sit by and watch jobs that should be based here be exported overseas.

America’s strength is its ability to innovate. Innovation will stimulate job creation and growth here in America.

The U.S. needs to get its mojo back—re-kindle our burning desire—if we are to thrive in the 21st century and beyond.

Thought for the week:

“Great achievement often happens when our backs are up against the wall.” -Robin Sharma
