“Speed, Price, Quality: Pick Two” ACTUALLY, this is shumething all S’poreans must realise.
Anon business adage

“There are two ways to extend a business. Take inventory of what you’re good at and extend out from your skills. Or determine what your customers need and work backward, even if it requires learning new skills.”
Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon (1964–)

“One gets paid only for strengths; one does not get paid for weaknesses. The question, therefore, is first: What are our specific strengths? And then: Are they the right strengths? Are they the strengths that fit the opportunities of tomorrow, or are they the strengths that fitted those of yesterday? Are we deploying our strengths where the opportunities no longer are, or perhaps never were? And finally, what additional strengths do we have to acquire?”
Peter Drucker, management writer (1909–2005), Managing in Turbulent Times (1980)

“There is one rule for the industrialist and that is: make the best quality of goods possible at the lowest cost possible, paying the highest wages possible.”
Henry Ford, industrialist (1863–1947)

“People don’t want quarter-inch drills. They want quarter inch holes.”

Theodore Levitt, academic (1925–2006), Thinking in Management (1983)

    Do PAP know what we are good at?where are our comparative advantages(C.A)?No,they don’t,they only know to recite things that we have been saying since 1959 which excite NO one including themselves.Take one example,F&B industry is one where we have tremendous C.A,,starting with our hawker foods,the first thing that Peanuts King Mr.Goh did was to destroy our hawker iindustry,by saying that if the rent of hawker stalls did not increase,he would be worried,or thing to that effect, WTF!
