Technology Transfer

“The Fastest Learner Wins” – [Comment from the Harvard Business School Symposium 2000]. And now without capital, so “The ‘Leanest Fast Learner wins” prevails. Can broadband help you learn fast, act fast and without much capital? The most fundamental reason that the Internet will persist as a key source of distribution and information is its dynamic nature.

It has created exceptional access to a level and quality of information not thought possible, and continues to do so through self transformation. Prior to the Internet, market imperfections were dominated by information gaps and deficiencies. These imperfections were the underlying source of competitive advantage for many firms. With most economists agreeing that perfect information is an integral part of a competitive market, the Internet has created the potential to not remove, but lower, the entry hurdle of one of the most important barriers to market competition.

How many bricks and mortar companies depend on information blocks for their competitive advantage? These businesses would seem to be the most vulnerable to the continuous waves of new competition coming from the Internet and consumers of products and services from these businesses would seem to be the largest beneficiaries.

Our Approach to Technology Transfer

The Internet is changing the structure of markets and the length and complexity of supply chains. Many products and services that were once customised for an insulated and localised clientele face competition from a range of online suppliers in distant locations. Products under these conditions risk becoming mere commodities, the prices for which follow a predictable downward trend with each and every cost reducing technology. The key issues of our approach are:

How will the business remain competitive in this environment where products and services are going to be produced and distributed faster, with potentially higher quality and lower costs?
How do we ensure early adoption and more importantly, the the capability to adopt technology and practices on an ongoing basis?
