Technological Change and the Watchmakers

Saturday, April 05, 2014

The global watch business is estimated to be worth around $22bn per year. It is still a big market, but the market leaders face some significant competitive threats from substitute products.

Can mechanical watchmakers compete effectively with the big smartphone brands? They need to find a way to do this soon unless their products are to be consigned to targeting a niche segment of older, wealthy customers.

Small is Beautiful in the Fast-Changing Solar Power Industry

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

We perhaps assume that the concept of economies of scale apply when it comes to the generation of "green" energy from solar panels. However, as this excellent video from The Economist explains, the fastest growth in solar panel generating capacity does not come from large solar farms in the desert. 

Instead, the utility industry is struggling to come to terms with the competitive threat from tens of thousands of small, individual installations which are able to sell their solar power into the energy grid. A great profile of a fast-growing industry and market that is making hay whilst the sun shines!

Business Board Questions

Monday, February 10, 2014

To develop students’ evaluation skill, I try to start most lessons with a question based on interesting news stories, from Miley Cyrus’ shock marketing techniques, to Google’s driverless cars. Attached is a PowerPoint with 20 headlines and pictures (some are sooo 2013) along with a business studies related question. Ideal for bellwork, or as a way of introducing a certain topic.

In my classroom, I have 4 pin boards (Finance, Marketing, Human Resources and Operations) and ask students where the specific question belongs; this then serves as a quick reference point to help students make the links between topics and businesses.

Hope it helps!

The Three Little Pigs V The Big Bad Wolf. Who is the guilty party?

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

This was an interesting advert from The Guardian that can be used to introduce a lesson on exam technique and evaluation.

Before showing the 2 minute video, ask the class to evaluate whether or not the wolf from the fable was guilty. The answer is invariably one-sided and the wolf is painted as a mindless tormentor who blew down houses for fun.

Show the clip and then ask the class how the case was made against the little pigs. They should explain how the specifics of the case are examined and analysed (as is the misrepresented antagonist) and a range of quantitative and qualitative evidence is used. The “evaluation” makes a decision, gives the reason, considers the financial and social implications and examines the long term ramifications…. everything the students need to do to get top marks!

Hope it helps.

Good Analysis Hunting - How to Fully Develop an Argument.

I am nothing if not current and bang up to date! I watched this 1997 classic for the first time last week and found a gem of a scene in which Matt Damon surprisingly demonstrates some impressive analytical skill. As films are invariably more interesting that me, I used this to drive home the importance of fully developing a point!

Managing Risk - Lessons from the Horsemeat Scandal

Saturday, December 07, 2013

One year on from the horse meat scandal, what has changed in the UK food industry to eliminate the problems exposed by the scandal?

The horse meat scandal highlighted the complexity and length of the UK food chain. Some supermarkets have responded by promising to source from closer to home. Others have introduced new supply chain controls.

But can we now trust what is in our food? And how important is it to us as consumers?

Strategic Choice - On What Should Japanese Camera Makers Focus?

Monday, October 28, 2013

A superb short video here from the business team at Reuters which highlights a strategic challenge facing camera manufacturers in Japan.

Top-end cameras for professional use are almost all Japanese - Japan made 81% of all digital cameras in 2012.

However, the emergence of high quality photography features on smartphones has slowed down demand for mid-range digital cameras.

Camera makers are moving away from compact digital cameras and moving towards the high-end market segments where sales might be lower but profit margins are higher.
