Editorial comments

Welcome to our third issue of the Ripose newsletter from our team at Ripose.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our condolences to anyone who suffered any loss due to the tragic events that befell mankind over the past few months.

Before you launch into reading the rest of our newsletter, please accept our compliments of the season and all the very best for 2002. May it be a better year for all of us.

By now the fallout from the corporate collapses and huge write offs in terms of capital and personnel has probably effected all of us in one way or another.

A number of organisations have openly stated what they think the solution to our economic woes are. For example, one group is citing the lack of sound financial modelling as a cause. Their solution is to train accountants to use spreadsheets more effectively.

What do I think? Well financial planning is only a fraction of the real problem facing the four major competencies today. Financial planning  is only part of strategic planning. With millions of dollars being spent on strategic planning consultants et al and businesses still ending belly up, perhaps the strategic planning techniques need closer scrutiny! Perhaps our Business 101 game will provide an insight!

Happy reading
Charles Richter - Managing Director
