Comment réduire le risque de votre investissement au moment du lancement de la société?

ceo-mic-sme-how-to-reduce-risk-funding

We suspect that when you acquire or make a significant investment in an early-stage company, your investment colleagues always consider the risk and suitability of the entrepreneur and those close to them, to take the company to the next stage. You know that the entrepreneur knows their products or services, but you will be asking yourself questions such as: *Does the entrepreneur have the required management experience and skills to handle the issues in functional areas where they feel less at ease (e.g. manufacturing, supply challenges, customer challenges, channel issues, industrial relations challenges, stakeholder management, marketing, and so on?) *Do they have the leadership skills to increase headcount and at the same time keep their people motivated and engaged? Creating a product, idea or concept is one thing; but can they manage the growth and all its implications? *Is the entrepreneur ready to keep focused on running the business and…

Mentorat – L’esprit critique reste l’antidote de reference pour eviter la stagnation!

ceo-mic-mentoring-aristotle-descartes-critical-thinking

In his article How Aristotle created the computer: The philosophers he influenced set the stage for the technological revolution that remade our world, Chris Dixon (note 1) gives us a notable tracing of present day computing back through the history of thought to the classic Greek philosophers. In this voyage back in time Claude Shannon and Alan Tuning played pivotal roles in the final stage of developing computers as we know them today. On the one hand Shannon’s main contributions were to separate the logic and the physical layers of computing, and then having mapped Boolean arithmetical logic units onto electric circuits. On the other Tuning, in his attempt to solve the decision problem (Is there an algorithm that could determine whether an arbitrary mathematical statement is true or false?) showed us how to design computers in the language of mathematical logic. Both Shannon and Tuning constructed their work on…

business-fundamental-success-how-to-

When one explores the concept of business, one will find wide interpretations of what constitutes the fundamentals of business that apply universally. One can find hundreds (if not thousands) of interpretations of such principles – every commentator attempts to put a unique spin on this to justify their value and contribution. The reason they are incorrect or inappropriate is that one can find legitimate contexts where the proposed principle doesn’t apply, therefore that principle isn’t universal. There are six fundamentals that apply in all business situations, are they are: 1. The business exists to further the objectives of its owners. When one examines the mission statement of many of the world’s leading corporations, one will inevitably find references to the satisfaction of stakeholder objectives. These references not only acknowledge the owners of the corporation, but often, also identify other stakeholders such as employees, the community, the government, suppliers, and of…

Gouvernance en Entreprise: Il faut apporter plus d’esprit critique dans les Comités de Direction

criticalthinking-ceomentoring-business-growth

I highly recommend reading a story titled ‘It is time to reform the make-up of corporate boards’ run by the Financial Times on January 3rd 2018. Over and above the structural changes that need to be made, it states the need for Board members to change their stance from one of justification of the status quo to one of hard-questioning how business is done. This is the criticial thinking that CEO Mentoring has been claiming of BoD for a long time.
