Technology has developed so fast in the last period, that the complete communication business has gone through a deep and irreversible transformation process. This change concerns commercial communication, global communication for big companies as well as information in the broader sense. The companies involved need to set up clear content management strategies so as to optimize all the content creation, sharing and multichannel distribution processes. The illustration visualizes the complexity of digital content management today and I wish it helps to clarify some idea on the subject. Please find the link to the PNG original file.

Successful applications of an effective Lean Six Sigma strategy share a very strong management support. In fact a Lean Six Sigma program does not happen accidentally, however, having said that just think about the following. There are two main opportunities when implementing an improvement program, could be very difficult: when times are bad and when times are good. When times are bad the profitability is very low and the resources are focused on strategic activities to ensure the survival. In this situation the company can’t afford to continue losing money because of poor quality and performace. When times are good the profitability is high, therefore resources are focused on the actual source of cash flow, resulting in the fact that improvement will be the last thing to do in order to take advantage of the current positive situation. But when profitability is high, within an ineffective company, also the costs of poor quality and internal wastes are high. Skilled managers must be willing to make significant commitments in order to implement and to support a successful Lean Six Sigma initiative.

After a full year in heads-down crisis mode, business executives are looking again to the future. As they reengage in strategic thinking, many are struck by a sense that the world has changed: The turmoil was not merely another turn of the business cycle but a restructuring of the economic order. Is that impression accurate? To answer this question, it is necessary to examine the underlying forces that shape the business environment and to look for discontinuities. McKinsey & Company tracks the most important of these forces, from the growth of emerging markets to the evolving role of business in society. Here we discuss how the crisis may affect their trajectories, and we address the implications for strategy. Some trends, we argue, remain firmly on track, but uncertainties are cropping up around others. We also see signs of new forces emerging, which we will be exploring in more detail in the months ahead. The overall picture is of an altered business landscape. It does seem there will be no going back to the precrisis world.
