Fixated Concepts Stymie Development

The “three Ms” in business driving change in international business Thomas Friedman, a Pulitzer-prizewinning columnist for The New York Times, gave a presentation at the Davos conference in Switzerland in January about how the “three Ms” in business have changed.   The first M refers to market forces, with globalization and the terms hyper-connected and interdependent at the forefront. Hyper-connected refers to how, via the Internet, both good and bad data is transmitted around the world at blinding speeds. Data that can wreak damage on a company’s reputation is virtually unstoppable nowadays. Interdependent describes how everything is becoming mutually intertwined.
