NewsGator Strategic Framework

  1. 1. Strategic Framework NewsGator
  2. 2. Core values are the essential and enduring tenets of an organization. A small set of timeless guiding principles, core values require no external justification; they have intrinsic value and importance to those inside the organization… Ralph S. Larsen, CEO of Johnson & Johnson, puts it this way: "The core values embodied in our credo might be a competitive advantage, but that is not why we have them. We have them because they define for us what we stand for, and we would hold them even if they became a competitive disadvantage in certain situations.“ - Jim Collins
  3. 3. We are social, working directly. Collaborative. We share and care internally and externally. We are pragmatic. Getting things done matters a lot to us. We are visionary and believe in the inspiring power of big ideas. We have a culture of competence, with really smart people aligned behind one goal. We are empathetic and care for people both as customers and colleagues as well as in our community. Our Core Values

  5. 5. Whereas you might achieve a goal or complete a strategy, you cannot fulfill a purpose; it is like a guiding star on the horizon - forever pursued but never reached. - Jim Collins
  6. 6. Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don't complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don't bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality. Wake Up and Live! - Bob Marley

  13. 13. To build a visionary company, you need to counterbalance its fixed core ideology with a relentless drive for progress. The point is not to find the “right” BHAGs but to create BHAGs so clear, compelling, and imaginative that they fuel progress. - Jim Collins To put a man on the surface of the Moon, and return him safely to the Earth. - NASA’s 1960s BHAG

  17. 17. Strategy takes what you want to achieve and develops a plan to get there. From strategy you can develop tactics and implement them. For me, strategy is as much about what you are not going to do as what you are going to do. - Fred Wilson
  18. 18. #2 Increase Customer Adoption #3 Empower More Use Cases #4 Build a Sustainable Company #1 Live a Culture of Trailblazing We are breaking new ground and need to learn everything about people, relationships and work. We will do so as a team, keeping our values high as we know blazing that new trail requires our full dedication. We will adapt as needed but keep focus on our mission. Success for us is defined as customers succeeding with our products. We will thrive to make this social success real for our customers. This includes to give more employees of our customers a chance to work social and get things done. We do this proudly with our partners. Social is just beginning to unlock the power of connected people. We will empower the use cases of those people. We help to articulate the use case, offer best practices and even productize the most common uses cases in ready to go solutions. We love NewsGator and will continue to build a sustainable company both financially as well as a member of the the human community. Our investment strategy as well as our daily decisions will reflect that both internally and externally.
