How to solve cross-border organizational RTV problems?
Solving RTV problems, in which retail products are shipped back to the manufacturer for disposition, can save companies millions of dollars. Some retailers report as much as 10%-20% of products returned, while only 4%-6% may be perceived as an unavoidable cost of doing business.
Logistics professionals are always searching for innovative methods to better identify major drivers for production, packaging, storing, shipping, and warehousing malfunctions, but most efforts focus on optimizing existing knowledge and expertise.
RTV is a typical cross-organizational problem, spanning different components of the business ecosystem (manufactures ...
Customer relationship management (CRM) concerns a company’s interactions with clients, assisted by a collaborative tool. The main goals are identifying and reaching out to new clients, retaining existing clients and bringing back those who left. From a cost-benefit perspective, CRM aims to reduce costs and increase the efficiency of marketing, pre-sales, sales, and customer services. However, recent research argues that more than 50 percent of all CRM implementations are eventually regarded as failures by the customers.
Some CRM experts blame this failure on the technology provided or the quality of implementation process. Such claims are sometimes correct, but since ...
How to make the bad guys help protect the good guys?
Inspired by counter-terrorism HUMINT (human intelligence) methods, the Think Intelligence™ methodology and its TINO™ framework, offers an out-of-the-box, anti-fraud solution
The typical organization loses 6% of its annual revenue to fraud. Furthermore, fraud damages by executives are nine times as costly as those caused by employees. And more than 93% of these “bad guys” joined their company as “good guys”…

Inspired by governmental HUMINT (human intelligence) methods, the TINO Anti-Fraud Program offers an out-of-the-box anti-fraud solution
Effective prevention of fraud means removing vulnerabilities that can be used by the bad guys rather than searching for the bad guys themselves.
As in other challenges, when we require a good prognosis and effective problem solving methods, we first need to have an accurate diagnosis. Preventing hidden activities is always more complex compared to visible ones. As accurate and relevant the information we gather, as straightforward and effective the actionable solution we can structure and implement.
But what comes first, the chicken or ...
Sustainable Innovation processes must consist in ongoing evaluation of different perspectives. The TINO framework facilitates this through deployment of a TIKOs Network.
TINO acts as a GPS, and its TIKOs act as satellites.
While renovation means relatively minor changes, and invention means creating something from scratch, Innovation is the application of substantial changes. The success of innovation programs can be best analyzed by comparing their ability to generate and maintain substantial changes.
In analyzing the nature of desired changes, while focusing on the undocumented people-domain (rather than the documented data-domain), there is a serious obstacle. We need more than one ...
