Small & Large Companies Anticipate
Challenges Raised By Offset
companies accept obligations that constitute a contract within a
contract, and which have the possibility to disrupt free trade?
International companies have to identify the most suitable
trade-off between their own industrial strategies, which are driven
by competitiveness, and offset requirements from countries seeking
local industrial development.
With many international
contracts being signed under such constraints, ECCO offers
stakeholders the opportunity to examine the organizational plans of
large corporate groups, while also discovering how small and medium
enterprises (SMEs) perceive this unprecedented environment.
The 10th ECCO (European Club for Countertrade and Offset) Symposium
in Paris, France, offers small and large companies the opportunity
to state how they anticipate the challenges raised by offset.
Questions that will be raised at this forum include:
companies adapt their procurement, production and sales strategies
in order to meet offset obligations? What systems do companies have
in place for gathering intelligence, and how do they take advantage
of innovative negotiation methods? In short, how do they use offset
to enhance their competitiveness?
The afternoon forum on 18 June focuses on offset management in
large corporate groups. The speakers will show how they organize
their organizational structures in order to fulfill direct and
indirect offset requirements. They will debate whether companies
should oppose offset, or use it as a vector for development and
Further questions that will be answered include:
Why should companies accept obligations that constitute a
contract within a contract, and which have the possibility to
disrupt free trade?
Which types of relationships and
partnerships should be created to fulfill offset successfully?
Specialists and experts from around the world working for
international groups and who are confronted with offset will be
present to answer questions from delegates. Both days will end with
a round table during which delegates can air their views and ask
workshop on 19 June deliberates the offset challenges that SMEs face —
discussing some consequences, management strategies and
opportunities. SMEs are confronted with offset requirements, either
directly with offset authorities of buying countries or in being
required to fulfil offset equal to the value of their sub-contracts.
A panel of SMEs from Europe and beyond will discuss their fortunate
and less fortunate experiences — the problems they face in
managing offsets and the opportunities generated by them.
The venue is 14 rue Bergère in Paris, at BNP Paribas Bank, and the
number of participants is limited to one hundred For more

Assuming The Role Of Leadership
There are basically five qualities of highly productive work groups
that should be fostered throughout the stages of team development.
The first quality of highly productive groups is
the existence of shared values.
This quality can
be fostered by asking the question, "What are our values?" or, "What
do we stand for?" Examples of shared values would be: integrity,
excellence, quality, caring about people, profitability and harmony.
The second quality is shared objectives.
It is essential that everyone take the time to discuss the
actual reason for forming the team, and the chief results that are
expected of them. The more thorough the discussion on goals and
objectives, the more effective the team will be when it begins
The third quality is shared activities.
Each person knows what they are supposed to contribute to the
achievement of the overall goals and objectives of the team.
The fourth quality is that the head of the team leads
The leader becomes the role model for
all of the others, accepting complete responsibility for the
achievement of the overall goal.
quality is that individually, and as a group, team members
continually evaluate their progress toward their goals and values.
They are always asking themselves, "How are we doing, and how
can we do better?" Whenever there are problems, misunderstandings,
or difficulties within the team, they are more concerned with what's
right than with who’s right. All members know that their ability to
work together in harmony and cooperation is the key to the success
of every one of them.
The wonderful thing about becoming a
leader in your work and personal life is that one can practice the
skills of influencing and persuading others toward a common
objective. And can thus improve oneself by continually evaluating
performance against standards.
One of the marks of excellent
people is that they never compare themselves with others. They only
compare themselves with themselves, with their past accomplishments
and their future potential. The more proficient one becomes at
getting results, the more opportunities one will have. And the
ability to lead others to high performance will enable fulfillment
of one’s goals faster than ever before.
