Competitive alternatives 2010

A catchy title for the new KPMG Guide to alternative international locations.   It “measures the combined impact of 26 significant business cost components that are most likely to vary by location. The study also compares data on a variety of non-cost competitiveness factors. The study examines 17 industry operations in 10 countries: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States.”

Elevator to success

When walking down Wellington’s Allenby Terrace steps to work this week I spied a wonderful series of thoughts taped to the steps.  It included this gem for business owners:  “There is no elevator to success: you have to take the stairs” .

Cool IT Leaderboard

The “leaderboard evaluates company performance on their efforts to offer economy-wide technological climate solutions that contribute to global greenhouse gas reductions, initiatives to reduce emissions from their own footprint, and their active engagement in political advocacy and support for science based climate and energy policies”.  This is Greenpeace’s third leaderboard.
