All is growing well in California following the substantial rains during the winter and spring everything in the garden is growing and blooming.
The same applies in our Reclipse World. I like to call it “moving into the light”. It is exciting times with our Reclipse team and key partnerships building with experienced and innovative top talent and real pragmatic Vision to Action programs. We are developing both internally to fertilize our growth and externally as we prepare and present “value proposition” offerings for clients and potential new clients.
Exciting – Next Generation
It is a fact that most things we currently work on are confidential and we pride ourselves in working ahead of current curves to help our clients be the “Best Next”! Personally I really dislike the terms like “Best in Class” and “Benchmarking” as that really means trying to catch up and become normal or true examples of JIT vs. JIC vs. JTL (Just Too Late)
An Example: Apple and the iPod, iTunes, iPhone current realities really were “game changing” thought leadership and innovation to action and world changing success! Now the iPad has instantly become a “fashion statement” that sells like hot cakes and has created a whole new product, market and community category.
At Reclipse we prefer to work on innovating and creating “next generation” happenings for and with our clients.
Exciting – An all Electric Vehicle
One project I can mention is in our Sustainability, Clean and Green, category. This is a Company that has built a “Zero Emissions” electric vehicle that charges rapidly, has a long range between charges and can and does drive on the freeway as it goes fast enough to be able to. We are developing the Vision (s), Mission, Values, Strategies and Tactics for this entity and a business model that can bring most value for all. The working concept vehicle is operating and very exciting and very real!
We have also developed some compelling Business Chain Management offerings as although we are proven experts in all aspects of cradle to cradle (we borrowed that term from someone) Global demand/supply chain management, integrated logistics, operations and asset management practices we also know that its time for a next level of thought leadership thinking and actions to suit the world we are in and the one ahead of us. To many experts SC terminology for example has become a misused catch all and nothing phrase that has created and not integrated Company stovepipes/silos versus produced real “Business” Sales, Cost, and Profit and Innovation success results. Our Business Chain (Change) thinking, methods and actions help build a wave of change towards true “next generation” customer, people and talent centric collaborations and business innovations results successes.
Exciting – Outsourcers, the 3PL’s (4PL’s)
One of these next generation offerings is targeted at the current 3rd Party Logistics Outsource providers who have to keep up with the ever increasing demands and expectations of the Brand designers/ODM’s who outsource to others to get things produced and delivered for them to an ever increasing and demanding Customer and Cost reduction expectation. How do the 3PL’s survive and compete to thrive in this very demanding arena. Our offering, value enhancing propositions and know how to methods and “how to’s” are targeted to pragmatically help companies in this arena.
So “lots going on” and it truly is an exciting time and opportunity for us all. Let the Sun shine and the gardens grow!
