Old Economy to New Economy Transformation Revisited

Big Red Car here.  Hey, it’s raining in the ATX and I don’t like that.  It’s a bit cold in addition.  The Boss had a day of power washing laid on but it looks a bit spotty.  I like The Boss to get his power washing on — it makes the simpleton so damn happy.  [Haha, watch it Big Red Car.]

So The Boss has always been a huge fan of the transformation of old economy companies to new economy companies.  A great way to create value by essentially jerking the old economy company into the real, current world.

Big Red Car here.  Well, Old Sport, is it going to be 82F and sunny today here in the ATX.  On Earth as it is in Texas.

Big Red Car here.  Going to be a great day.  Me and The Boss have already been for a good swim.  I let The Boss swim while I keep an eye on things.

This morning, clear and when The Boss looked out his office window, there was the UT Tower shining bright in the before dawn light.

It doesn’t get better than this — On Earth as it is in Texas, ya’ll!

Employment and hiring process

Big Red Car here.  Nice sunny warm day here in the ATX.  It is summer, Old Sport, and it is going to be a warm one.

So The Boss was visiting with one of his CEOs and they got to chatting about the hiring process from a mechanical perspective.  The Boss loves nothing as well as a well defined and streamlined process and a process graphic.

At the end of the day, the hiring process is really a search or discovery function — finding the right person for the right job.  It is most surely a process.

Weaving the Tapestry of Business

Big Red Car here.  Cool night and The Boss is up early this morning.  He loves a Saturday morning.  Pancakes and bacon, perhaps?  Bit of fresh 10W30, please pass the clean air filter?  Haha, Big Red Car, you crack yourself up.

So The Boss was musing about the “tapestry of business” — all the individual threads that must be woven together to make a coherent whole.  It is a structural notion that requires a strong core, a stout wearing surface and a lovely pattern.  It has to be strong, wear well and turn a pretty face to the public.  Most importantly, it has to be real and authentic.
