A bad experience on a Ryan Air flight this weekend has led me to question if the current trend toward hiper efficiency and out sourcing is really a good idea – especially considering the number of strategic and operational risks that business is faced with today.
Last night I had the pleasure of meeting with members of IESE’s Alumni organization in London to talk about the link between geo-politics and business strategy. As was to be expected the key issues on their mind are Brexit, Iran, North Korea and the inherent instability fo the Trump administration.
Last week the leaders of North and South Korea held an historic meeting which might open the door for a full and lasting peace on the peninsula and maybe even foreshadow the eventual re-unification of the country.
On Earth Day, it makes sense to remember the original event in 1970 and the idea that environmental regulation comes in waves at least until the trump administration and the appointment of Scott Pruitt as Administrator of the EPA in the United States.
