Simmethod risk and opportunities alerts 2013, oracle case study, sshare

3,311

Published on

SIMMETHOD’s industry-agnostic algorithm holistically finds the Best-In-Class Businesses in each Business Sector and only then calculates a Best-In-Class and a low performance profile. These Best-In-Class and Low Performance profiles are used as a GPS to:
Alert you of your risk and opportunities within and outside your Business Sector,
Predict your performance against your peers and the Best-In-Class across multiple Business Sectors and
Fend-off current and future competitors coming from inside and outside your industry.

  9. 9. Disrupting the Way we Measure Corporate Risk and Performance There are three main problems: 1. The lack of a single industry-agnostic scale to measure and predict Corporate strategy/execution (competitive advantage) leads to erroneous and inconsistent C-Level decision-making 2. Silos-analytics lead to erroneous C-level decisions based on many versions of the truth 3. Lack of C-Level risk and performance visibility accentuated by inward-looking industry metrics 7/11/2013 9WWW.SIMMETHOD.COM

  11. 11. Towards a Single Index to Measure Competitive Advantage • Comparing the elephant legs or ears against peers’ legs or ears leads to incorrect conclusions (This is what traditional benchmarking does) • The strategy/execution or competitive advantage of a Business can only be assessed holistically and it is not the sum of its parts 7/11/2013 11WWW.SIMMETHOD.COM
  12. 12. Towards a Single Index to Measure Competitive Advantage SIMMETHOD’s industry-agnostic algorithm holistically finds the Best-In-Class Businesses in each Business Sector and only then calculates a Best-In-Class and a low performance profile. These Best-In-Class and Low Performance profiles are used as a GPS to: • Alert you of your risk and opportunities within and outside your Business Sector, • Predict your performance against your peers and the Best-In-Class across multiple Business Sectors and • Fend-off current and future competitors coming from inside and outside your industry. 7/11/2013 WWW.SIMMETHOD.COM 12
  13. 13. Towards a Holistic Index of Corporate & Value-Chain Performance and Risk • Currently, there is no single industry-agnostic scale to measure and predict Business or Value-Chain strategy/execution (competitive advantage). • Conventional Benchmarking measures silo by silo (ratio by ratio) and then adds up the sum of the parts but the problem is that (a star team is not the same as a team of stars) 7/11/2013 13WWW.SIMMETHOD.COM
  14. 14. A Star Team (Strategy/Execution) Is Different Than a Team of Stars 7/11/2013 WWW.SIMMETHOD.COM 14 • Unlike conventional analytics that measures 11 players independently, SIMMETHOD’s algorithm finds the Best-In- Class teams first and only then prepares a predictive C-Level and functional profile of the Best-In-Class players

  16. 16. The Leading Indicators and Risk Alerts of the Best-In-Class Why do you need Industry Agnostic Leading indicators and Risk/Opportunities Alerts? • In an interdependent Market (like the Planets in the solar system) your current and future risk and performance are impacted by an ecosystem of constantly changing competitors coming from inside and outside your Industry. 7/11/2013 WWW.SIMMETHOD.COM 16

  18. 18. SIMMETHOD’s Disclaimer • The purpose of the SIMMETHOD Strategy/Execution Performance Predictive Index, Reports and Risk/Opportunities Alerts is not to make a Business right or wrong but rather contribute towards the understanding of management actions in comparison to industry peers and the SIMMETHOD Best-In- Class. 7/11/2013 WWW.SIMMETHOD.COM 18
  19. 19. SIMMETHOD’s Disclaimer • SIMMETHOD’s League Table, Strategy/ Execution Performance Predictive indices, correlations, metrics and risk/opportunities alerts do not seek to be exact but rather serve as a conduit to ask better questions and seek better answers in the performance improvement, risk minimization and value creation journey. 7/11/2013 WWW.SIMMETHOD.COM 19
  20. 20. SIMMETHOD’s Disclaimer • Sometimes, the value of a metric in itself does not provide the greatest of insights, but valuable actionable knowledge is gained from its ability to provide a trend or a common comparison yardstick with other Businesses across a range of industries. 7/11/2013 WWW.SIMMETHOD.COM 20
