The Man Who Wore Red Shoes

Dorian Gale was a CEO who was taken in by two brothers, Emerson (Em for short) and Henry to lead their family company Kansas Farms, in Norfolk in the 00’s. Em and Henry had inherited the original farm from their father, Clive. All those years […]

Productivity – What Philip Hammond missed in the Autumn Statement

Well, I was initially delighted to hear about Philip Hammond’s announcement of a £23bn investment in “Productivity” in today’s Autumn Statement.
The Detail
I rushed home to look at the detail, only to be disappointed that it was mostly on infrastructure. It is also over 5 years, with only £2.3bn next year, rising to £7bn in […]

Vodafone – have you lost the plot?

A few weeks ago I wrote a blog about my customer experience at my doctor’s surgery. That article was all about a very good experience, with what, I believe is, a progressive GP practice. Its theme was about small improvements in the customer journey. In contrast, this week is about Vodafone, and it’s not […]

Disruption Start with you

There’s a lot of talk about disruption out there, and indeed, at Bite The Cherry we are helping many such businesses.

Effectiveness – Saying NO

In his seminal book The Effective Executive, Peter Drucker introduced us to the notion of “Efficiency is doing the thing right. Effectiveness is doing the right thing.”

In today’s modern life full of too much “Busyness” and not enough Business this is more relevant than ever.
