Il ponte e la trasparenza

Si è svolta oggi alle 13.30, presso la Sala della Trasparenza di Regione Liguria (Piazza De Ferrari, 1 a Genova) la conferenza stampa in cui è stato annunciato l’ammontare dei fondi raccolti in occasione della partita Spezia–Sampdoria del 9 settembre scorso, fondi che andranno alle famiglie colpite dalla tragedia di Ponte Morandi.


“Spero che non a caso si sia scelta la Sala della Trasparenza…ne abbiamo bisogno!!!

Toti ringrazia e parla di risposte alla città, bene, speriamo che arrivi anche la risposta che tutta Italia aspetta: una bella sentenza che inchiodi la Società Autostrade alle sue responsabilità….!!!!!”

(Romano Pisciotti)

……è stato proprio il Presidente della Regione Toti a prendere per primo la parola: “Ringrazio lo Spezia Calcio e l’U.C. Sampdoria per aver collaborato nell’organizzazione di un evento che ha consentito di raccogliere una cifra davvero importante, dando vita ad un bellissimo gesto di vicinanza nei confronti della città di Genova e della sua popolazione. Tutto il mondo sportivo ha dimostrato grande solidarietà, le iniziative sono state numerose, come testimonia anche la presenza della Nazionale che domani sera affronterà al “Ferraris” l’Ucraina. Non dimentichiamo poi il gesto del Presidente Onorario dello Spezia Calcio, Gabriele Volpi, che ha dato vita ad una donazione davvero considerevole ed a cui va il ringraziamento delle istituzioni e di tutto il popolo genovese. 

L’attenzione deve però rimanere accesa, c’è ancora tanto da fare, servono risposte rapide alle esigenze di una città intera ed i fondi raccolti devono essere utilizzati nel migliore dei modi“.

Nigeria is suffering the Global Recession and a massive contraction in economic activities with the significant fall in spending.

This creates a mess in the entire economy.

Such a slowdown in economic activities may last for some quarters, or more, thereby completely hampering the growth of the economy. 

We prepare managers to reach their destination in the recession.

Romano Pisciotti: working for a Great Nation

Most valued nation brand in Africa

South Africa is still Africa’s most valued nation brand, but Nigeria is catching up fast.

Africa features six of the world’s ten fastest-growing nation brands, which includes the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, and Ghana.

Lagos 300x169 Most valued nation brand in Africa Romano Pisciotti


Nigeria is a middle-income, mixed economy and emerging market, with expanding manufacturing, financial, service, communications, technology and entertainment sectors. It is ranked as the 30th-largest economy in the world in terms of nominal GDP, and the 23rd-largest in terms of purchasing power parity.

Oil industry and mining

The basis of the Nigerian economy is the oil industry. At present, the oil industry is the foundation of the economy. Nigeria is the 1st in Africa and the world’s 8th exporter of oil. Oil provides more than 90% of the country’s export earnings. Today the daily oil production is 1.59 – 1.65 million barrels a day. Now the quota of Nigeria in OPEC is 1.8 million b/d. 65% of the produced oil is light grades with low sulfur content.
In Nigeria, coal, tin, cassiterite, and columbite are also mined. Extraction of cassiterite and concomitant columbite mineral (niobium ore) is produced by an open method. After the tin-smelting plant commissioning in 1962, most of the tin is exported as ingots. Following 1960, because of the railroad turning to diesel fuel and the appearance of cheaper and more environmentally friendly oil products, coal mining began to curtail.

In agriculture Nigeria employs 65% of the population. The main food crops are yams, sweet potatoes, and corn. Many lands are irrigated. Cacao beans (340 million tons), natural rubber (112 million tons), and cotton (0.4 million tons) are also grown. 31.29% of the land is cultivated.

The theory of the oceans

From the red ocean of ruthless competition, to the calm blue ocean and without competition, where to win you have to innovate and expand your market. The steps to be taken to establish rules capable of opening uncontested markets, in which growth is guaranteed
The Blue Ocean Strategy is the theory according to which the markets in which companies of any type operate are metaphorically seen as two parallel oceans of different colors, one red and one blue, depending on the way in which it is decided to operate on the market itself .

The red ocean is a hypothetical market in which business managers have focused for some time, which includes all the existing sectors, where there is a continuous struggle between competitors to win a greater share of demand within the same sector and where ‘is complete absence of innovation.

In this type of market, companies must be content with low profit margins, because the strategic approach is the traditional one, based on the defeat of competition. Conversely, a blue ocean is characterized by innovation!

The new ideas are developed through strategic moves, that is, a set of actions and managerial decisions that lead to the birth of new products and services that, in turn, give rise to new markets. But how do you go from a red to a blue ocean?

Oceano blu 300x118 The theory of the oceans Romano Pisciotti

Although it may seem very difficult to abandon traditional logic and study new strategies, the turning point is not in the ingenious idea that will overwhelm competition, but is to give innovative value to something that already exists, interpreting it in a different form.

It is about creating “valuable innovation”: changing the mental approach and thus overcoming the traditional boundaries of one’s own sector of reference to explore new territories, looking mainly at non-clients and creating new uncontaminated market spaces.

strategia The theory of the oceans Romano Pisciotti

In order to create a blue ocean, it is not enough to have executives with a good critical sense and able to learn from mistakes: managers must reflect on the fact that there is certainly a completely free market share, with a different structure where they can decide the rules themselves.

Romano Pisciotti: the boundaries of the market and the structure of the sector are not immutable elements, but are continuously redrawn if we are able to create a constant innovation of value.

THE WORLD IN 2100 We will all be Nigerians
There is Africa in our past.

tutti WE WILL ALL BE NIGERIANS Romano Pisciotti

A hundred thousand years ago, humanity started from the highlands of the black continent to colonize the world… And there is Africa in our future.
Within this century, the bulk of the men and women who inhabit the planet will be native to Africa.

modello WE WILL ALL BE NIGERIANS Romano Pisciotti

An extraterrestrial who, in 2100, did a hit-and-run visit to our planet and would describe us briefly would report that, for the most part, our grandchildren and great-grandchildren have black skin and frizzy hair. At least four out of ten people who would meet would be African. Much more than Chinese and Indian. And the Europeans? Well, the extraterrestrial should have luck to find them. Virtually invisible, a small minority: one in ten.
The population of the Earth is growing, in fact, a bit slower than in recent decades, but will continue to grow, especially in Africa.

The Africa that it has today, scattered among savannahs, deserted forests, little more than a billion inhabitants, will have, predicts the United Nations, more than double (2.4 billion) in 2050 and four times as much (4.2 billion) at the end of the century. More than China and India combined.

Sub Saharan African economies

Sub-Saharan Africa is not growing as fast as expected, here’s why: Sub Saharan African economies are still recovering from the slowdown in 2015-16, but growth is slower than expected, according to the October 2018 issue of Africa’s Pulse, the bi-annual analysis of the state of African economies by the WorldBank. The average growth rate in the region is estimated at 2.7 percent in 2018, which represents a slight increase from 2.3 percent in 2017.

“The region’s economic recovery is in progress but at a slower pace than expected,” said Albert Zeufack, World Bank Chief Economist for Africa. “To accelerate and sustain an inclusive growth momentum, policy makers must continue to focus on investments that foster human capital, reduce resource misallocation and boost productivity. Policymakers in the region must equip themselves to manage new risks arising from changes in the composition of capital flows and debt.”

Slow growth is partially a reflection of a less favorable external environment for the region.
