Tapas and Much More…

Yes, I had Tapas. And Paella. Some Sangria as well. But there was much more than good food and drink to be had in Barcelona, Spain last week during the GSMA’s Mobile World Congress event. This show has become the global event for the mobile ecosystem, and it lived up to expectations once again. International editor Richard Mumford and I spent the week meeting with some of the leading semiconductor and test solution providers in our industry, hearing about the latest news and products to hit the market. With more than 1,800 companies from 32 countries and 85,000 visitors, this show was jammed packed with people and excitement. MWC is a great example of how live events can bring people together with the latest technologies and products to drive business to new heights.

Know and Grow

In order for a company to develop a profitable growth strategy, it should have a detailed understanding of its costs, competitive position and customer environment. However, due to resource constraints, department managers are usually focused on near term issues, and don’t have the time to focus on longer-term strategic issues.  As such, any long-term analysis is substituted with conventional wisdom about the company and the markets they compete in.  Unfortunately, more often than not, conventional wisdom is far off the mark from reality.
