"All's Fair in Love and War"…and Business?

(Thoughts on clichés and ethics!)

"All's fair in love and war" usually accompanied by a smirk from the person delivering the justification for something that you probably see as patently unfair is something we've all probably heard at some time or another but is it right?

Part of the problem when considering ethics in business revolves around the spectrum of what is 'right' and the fact that business is essentially a competitive endeavour and of course the fact that where you have winners you inevitably have losers. Sport has a set of rules and most importantly a set of conventions that are more or less universally accepted – fair play if you will and within those boundaries tough even brutal competition is admired and respected. Breaking or even flirting with those rules and conventions can bring lasting contempt on someone who actually 'wins', just ask the Aussie cricket team.

Business is the same as sport in that a set of rules (laws) and conventions (what is seen as fair play) must be observed and in the case of conventions judged, judged by what Lord Denning would have called “The man on the Clapham omnibus” in other words judged by what the majority of people would see as reasonable....more


Editor letter - the future of streamlined production

Dear Ian

In the 35 years I’ve been in the industry, I’ve seen PVC-U manufacturing become more efficient, streamlined and lean.

The principle of streamlined production is simple – removing unnecessary processes makes it more efficient and cost-effective. In practice it has helped improve quality throughout the manufacturing process, and it’s helped make business as profitable as possible.

But, the process of using galvanised steel to reinforce PVC-U profile is largely unchanged. Steel reinforcement acts as a cold bridge in the profile, reduces energy efficiency and makes windows heavier. It also adds another step to the manufacturing process, plus the labour and time to cut, handle and fit the reinforcement, and the space to keep it. ...more

Sincerely
Chris Jones, Sales Director Deceuninck
