What You Can Learn From the Crash of 2008 (Part 1)

19September14

Ben Bernanke, the former head of the Federal Reserve, said the 2008 financial crisis was the worst in global history, surpassing even the Great Depression. His statement is raising eyebrows. While the “Great Recession” was scary, there’s a reason it wasn’t dubbed a depression: Bernanke’s aggressive policy response. “Arguably, the financial shocks of 2008 were bigger [...]

The Heart of the Matter (Part 2)

18September14

Design is the mother of intention. Our physical places and spaces for better or worse reflect over-arching corporate business attitudes. I invite you to visit both stores (Healthy Living Market and the New Trader Joes in South Burlington), and see for yourself. One feels distinctively local, about Vermont and Vermonters, local food to table. The [...]

I admire the new Trader Joe’s for many reasons, but my heart lies with Healthy Living Market. Here’s why.
Healthy LIving has a heart literally. Trader Joe’s doesn’t. Healthy LIving is a Vermont owned natural foods market with a socially responsible core central to its mission. You feel it when you enter the store with the [...]

What is stopping you from getting to your customer? (Part 3)

16September14

One research study cited a customer searching for a “stain removal solution.” According to Google, when it comes to stains, the most searched topic is “how to remove red wine.” If you’re in the carpet cleaning business, knowing the answer to this would be a home run.
Google suggests that using search and Google insights functions [...]

15September14

Lecinski has written an update to his book that I recently received: “ZMOT and Why It Matters Now More Than Ever.”
The recent update continues to describe the consumer’s journey. As she continues to bounce back and forth through the Internet, more things have become apparent. The customer has added many more moments of truth.
Although this [...]

What is stopping you from getting to your customer? (Part 1)

12September14

In 2011, Jim Lecinski, Vice President, US Sales & Service. Google, Inc., wrote a book called “Winning the Zero Moment of Truth-ZMOT.” What we learned from the book was the consumer has forged a new path to your door. The “moment of truth” has always been the point where the consumer forms an impression of your [...]

With the growth of personal mobile devices coming to work in smartphones and tablets of today, the need for physical addressed “I” space may increasingly diminish with the rise instead of spaces adapted for the heads down individual, small group and large group data analysis and collaboration.

Milne calls this a “Needs based workplace strategy”, building in a highly flexible, changeable real estate mindset where workers have greater choices of the kinds of spaces to work in throughout the day, matching the work needing to be done”.
Milne said there will be greater blending of technology into the architecture of buildings and workplaces, [...]

The second aspect Milne highlighted was the importance of providing less “I” space and more “We” space”. Data shows more shared collaboration, meeting and common spaces are needed in the workplace with smaller individual workspaces. It used to be 80-90% individual addressed workspace and 10-20% common space. Now it’s more like 60% individual and 40% [...]

For one Milne said all spaces (whether physical or virtual) represent organizational brand and have the power to help [build engaged and resilient company cultures] while demonstrating the value of face to face interactions. By building brand [value intentionally and meaningfully] into our workplaces, we can create greater localized authenticity in our age of increasing [...]
