De meningen ge-uit door medewerkers en studenten van de TU Delft en de commentaren die zijn gegeven reflecteren niet perse de mening(en) van de TU Delft. De TU Delft is dan ook niet verantwoordelijk voor de inhoud van hetgeen op de TU Delft weblogs zichtbaar is. Wel vindt de TU Delft het belangrijk - en ook waarde toevoegend - dat medewerkers en studenten op deze, door de TU Delft gefaciliteerde, omgeving hun mening kunnen geven.

The “Indivers Phenomenon”

Today I attended the "Indivers Phenomenon" lecture by Dr. Bert Twaalfhoven, the newest in the series organized by ABC Delft. The lecture was lively and had an up-close-and-cozy feel to it, in part because of the great venue and crisp quality sound from the hazzle-free wireless speaker system (something key for lectures in my opinion) It was held at the Theater de Veste and featured great guests and some nice snacks and refreshments. 

I thoroughly enjoyed Dr. Twaalfhoven's lecture, he is an oustanding speaker or "preacher" as he himself puts it. In his lecture, I noted three key take-aways that I believe are very insightful and useful to keep in mind.

  • Study the cascade of suppliers. Understand your industry, know what's going on, and perform thorough analysis.
  • Understand the barriers of entry to your industry, perform thorough analysis including cases of failure.
  • Always make a negative business plan. Dare to make it negative, and follow-up on it on a month-by-month basis.

I'm already looking forward to ABC Delft's next lecture…
