Global forces:

Five crucibles of change will restructure the world economy for the foreseeable future. Companies that understand them will stand the best chance of shaping it.

JUNE 2010 • Peter Bisson, Elizabeth Stephenson, and S. Patrick Viguerie 

Today, when the biggest business challenge is responding to a world in which the frame and basis of competition are always changing, any effort to set corporate strategy must consider more than traditional performance measures, such as a company’s core capabilities and the structure of the industry in which it competes.

An article reinforcing on the importance of applying pro-active approach towards climate shifts within Business Landscape. 

I see it as playing  Dodgeball against global forces & familiar trends. Watching out for external forces and trends, and attacking the economy with our modified business model  - hitting the opportunities right where it counts.

Video: Why trends matter
McKinsey director Peter Bisson explains the value of tracking global forces and how to build them into corporate strategy.

 In a nutshell Y/Our Business Strategy should be devised in response to global forces & trends; so that instead of facing a bottle neck after a decade, we would be witnessing a sustainable yet substantially profitable business cycle.

Your Global Recognition !

Every professional wants to be known and appraised for the work S/he has done. This desire evolves into a need; when you are on a job hunt. They want to impress their employers with their hidden abilities & achievements which are not on paper (resume, portfolio) or don't have a  fair amount entities or peers supporting it.

At times even your work experience at a multinational firm (probably fortune 500) isn't enough for you to land on a better job. Prospective employer would always need proof of you abilities at work and achievements made during you tenure as a professional. This  and your responses in the interview suffices for selection; as a guarantee that there decision of hiring you is a "Good One".  Candidates normally have resumes filled with job experience; but to the employer it seems to be as tenure not experience.

What needed is; a well directed "Personal Portfolio";  the beginning depicts the default set of abilities and skills and, then by the time of intermission all of the lessons learned within a specific tenure, and right after intermission comes climax pertaining all Skills- refined, Best practices adopted, difference made through application.

This could be either in your resume (hard copy) or should be part of you professional online profile; because there is a fair chance that you are getting "Google'd" Or being searched on "Linkedin".

Now what are these skills-refined, best practices adopted, and achievements made?
These are;
- Spread sheet managing skills replaced by a "Power User Certification" of a Business process automation software, OLAP technique of a particular platform.
- Credentials proving successful implementations & compliance of  Industry Standards, best practices such as ACCA, PMI, IIBA, SAP industry best practices and others.
- "Transformed a conventional business operation into a real-time responsive business model enabling a new market of customized  in time production coupled with cost effective & transparent operations - GM Stitching & Sales of XYZ Designer Company". 

Almost every third seasoned professional states that; "a prospective employer takes accredited skills,  recommendations as a supportive material. Primarily they go for probing out all of the relevant information and they do it quite precisely".
