Strategic vs. Tactical + “` “` “` nature of the long run

What separates the men from the niños

is a big failure or a fly Benzino

I’ve had all of that, yo se lo que te digo

Gotta be there in the long run for my hijos

Sen Dog   Stand Up Diary of a Mad Dog

Takeaway #151:  Sen Dog knows what he is talking about and he will certainly be there for his and your kids.  This is a long range game not a short-term Bertrand model of downward spiral price-cutting.  If you are in it for the long run and a continued share of the monopolistic profits for you and your successors, you need to build a sustainable model and avoid a colossal failure with short term profit thinking.  Be strategic, not simply tactical – today and in the long run.

Ironically, however, sometimes being strategic requires thinking functionallly, but acting strategically (Click Extra 2 below)

About codemizell

The Beats Per Management collective (“The BPM”) is curator for C.O.D.E Mizell and supports the repurposing of hip hop content for professional success. BPM consists of former Hip Hop junkies now living in the corporate world. BPM members carried milk crates of 12” records when “bpm” used to mean beats-per-minute for mixing music, now BPM members focus on Excel spreadsheets, legal briefs, power points, whiteboard-scribbling and business plans. BPM cannot shake the instant recall of Hip Hop lyrics. The good news is that BPM realized that these lyrics had application to its daily management concerns. BPM does not claim to have captured the true artist intent in its lyrical analysis, BPM seeks only to celebrate the role that hype-lyrics can play in the daily grind to get business done in the corporate world. This is not a glorification of urban pop-culture or a debate on the poetic merits of rap, we leave that to the literary critics and socio-political commentators. If you disagree with BPM send us your spin on the lyrics. We have an open mind, and hope you do. The “BPM Takeaways” dispense reminders for your business day. Hopefully, the next time a referenced-cut is heard on the radio, it will trigger your “Takeaway” and not just flashbacks to the music video. A quote-a-day will make you a better executive. BPM hopes to keep all advice short and to the point – Executive Summary Style. Technically the lyrics are “raps” and the culture of the genre is “hip hop” but lets not get overly technical -- substance not form that controls here. The point is you are putting that untapped knowledge to use. And to think they said that Hip-Hop would get you nowhere…puhhleasse. -Roscoe Waxx for BPM
