LAND sds like many companies go dark as the plan for the future. LAND sds is under going reorganization and change for a sustainable future. Companies have to take time to assess, audit and analyze where they are within their own lifecycle. LAND sds is taking its own advice!

The goal is identify its secret sauce and opportunity to have impact today for tomorrow for performance, productivity and profitability. This thinking is sustainable and optimal for success and building relationships within complex ecosystems.

It is easy to run to what we know versus stepping back to analyze where is the next step for the future. This is complex but adopts an attitide of change.   "As we implore clients to think about their present operations for success we too have to drink our philosophical koolaid,"  said, Tyra Oldham, ceo. 

LAND sds is proud of its year on the NeXuses where we are providing sustainable news and received awards for leadership but today is now.

Government Shutdown a Wake Up Call to Small Business

 

October 5, 2013

Tyra Oldham, ceo, LAND sds

 

The government shutdown is in its fifth day. The contraction of service  effects the supply chain of economy, social support and national public services. The shutdown big picture is the connectivity of small business to the government pipeline of contracts, support and intelligence.

The shutdown has placed all reports on hold that provide strategic data. 

The contracts, funding and grants from the U.S. government are economic drivers for small business. The governments' SBIR, Darpa, grants programs and more are the platforms for small business development. The services that the government outsources to small developing businesses are fuel centers of many small businesses.

NBC reported, "How the ripple effects of the government shutdown might spread, day by day" and "Monday, Oct. 7: Sikorsky Aircraft of Connecticut, which sells helicopters to the Defense Department, says it will be forced to furlough 2,000 workers in Connecticut, Florida and Alabama."

"Friday, Oct. 11: United Technologies, a major defense contractor, says it will be forced to furlough 4,000 workers at two of its companies, Pratt & Whitney and UTC Aerospace Systems. Sikorsky says it will furlough 1,000 more."
"Saturday, Oct. 12: Football Saturday for the service academies: Army hosts Eastern Michigan, and Navy is at Duke. Those games are up in the air — but college football is such a moneymaker that private donors would probably step in. Private donations are covering the Oct. 5 games, and military officials say the NCAA, CBS Sports and United Airlines all offered to help."
Last, to understand the domino is "Tuesday, Oct. 15: The final deadline to file your 2012 tax return, provided you got an exemption for the regular April 15 deadline. "
The shutdown is not good for business but even worse for smaller concerns. Sustainability reveals that the ecosystem in which we work is based on robust activity on every level. When OEMs or Tier I's cease to grow or decide upon a pragmatic or conservative practices to operating, Tier II or III's contract and shrink. Moreover, when Tier II and III's evaporate there is collapse in innovation, jobs and businesses that feed the Tier I's.  

 

Good business is great for everyone and the opposite hold true.

How Big and Small Business Respond to Change Today

 

 

July 24, 2013

By Tyra Oldham, LAND sds

 

The interesting curiosities of the state of business from varied professionals crossing sectors and levels of leadership conveys a lot about the economy and the structural changes in the business world. The privilege to engage with professionals in Energy, Law, Government, Policy, Engineering, Construction, Management, Manufacturing and more all asking questions on the mode of business today. I often liken today as to the days of the Wild West in which new territories were sought and the infrastructure was challenged and changed.

The question posed:

“Do you feel small business are not responding to the changes and demands of business today.”

 Response:

All businesses are effected by the today's changes. The changes are complex and challenged by technology, globalization, the economy and finding the next fertile ground. The difference between Big and Small Business is the speed in which impact is felt within this complexity. What is meant by “impact is felt”?  What is the rate of speed that information is realized in which c-change is required. Consider, big business has a velocity and led by a tail wind of resources, brand recognition and people in which impact takes time to be felt; whereas, small businesses feel the impact immediately with very little gap from information to reaction. Small businesses know immediately that their sales are dropping; therefore, new intelligence is required or something is needed. Big businesses' capital and brand create a malaise and the decentralization of knowledge reducing agile communication to address issues. Further, the higher one is from the floor has its benefit but can cause loss of site on new realities. Leaders who assemble a team of advisers from varied stages of development across sectors can provide insight into new realities. This team is advisably recommended to big and small businesses. A myopic view is developed when one assembles knowledge that is reflective of their own or from a stand point of comfortability.

The solutions for Big and Small business today is adapting to change and operating as if small, as well as functioning as that success rests on each and every sale. Further, recognizing and valuing the proposition of doing good business leads to long-term sustainability. The mental model of small and big business is contrasting and uniquely different under the reality that no one is “too big to fail” as the previous paradigm for small businesses was undoubtedly and more often subject to fail. This knowledge is an i-bomb (intelligence bomb) to the economy causing market unsteadiness and uncertainties reflected in spending and growth.

Failure and growth is a dynamic for those who seek to move or resist new ground. The businesses that rest on past successes and remain unchanged by their environment, today's gravity and momentum are challenged no matter their positionality.

The ability to recognize the need for assistance and third party support or tools is the fulcrum today. Next, the ability to accept that support is the leverage for sustainable growth. Today, big and small businesses are on the same boat of meeting new horizons while scaling for growth. The opportunity is to tune up to enable sustainability.
