Wavell Hinds, president of the West Indies Players Association (WIPA), has described as surprising, claims by West Indies Twenty20 captain, Darren Sammy, that the organisation has not represented their best interest as it relates to contracts for ICC Twenty20 World Cup in India next month.Sammy, in a recent letter to the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), claimed that a reduction in payments for players to participate in the tournament, has ran contrary to their expectations, and, as a result, members squad, are seeking a renegotiation.However, Hinds, whose entity has been at loggerheads with several of its senior playing members, especially since their aborted tour of India in October 2014, has defended negotiated contracts between WIPA and the WICB, saying that what has been arrived at represents the “best interest” of all players in the region.”I am surprised that they (World Twenty20 squad players) are behaving this way, as the information (based on new payments) would have been disseminated to them nine months ago,” stated Hinds.”I was present at all the meetings, and Darren Sammy was not, so I think he is speaking on information he has gotten.”[However], as far as I am concerned the team that I lead, and the executive that I lead, and the members of the (WIPA) negotiating team, did all the best that they could to get the best.”He continued: “This was not just for a selected group of players, but for all the players of the region, including first-class players.”Currently serving his fourth year as president, Hinds explained that the contracts were negotiated based on new payment conditions stipulated by the WICB, as a result of changes at the International Cricket Council (ICC) level.This, he continued, has subsequently resulted in players being offered less money as compared to the Twenty20 World Cup in 2012.LESS MONEY”In February 2014, the International Cricket Council (ICC) agreed to have a new payment scale for its members, and this took effect January 2016,” said Hinds.”The new (players’) remuneration package is therefore based on current commercial revenues available to the WICB, and not that of commercial revenue that obtained in 2012 when the West Indies won the tournament.”There is no specific fees for Twenty20 World Cups anymore. Its ICC Events payments,” he stressed.Hinds also expressed that the disbursement of monies from the ICC has also change with payments now being collectively issued twice per year over a new four- and eight-year period, in comparison, to it’s prior one-off payment regimes.Hinds, in further explaining the new payment structure, also said that player match fees for Twenty20 World Cup has been increased from US$1,750 to US$6,900.This is in addition to an incentive 80 per cent of prize money won, and 50 per cent of sponsorship fees, should there be any.

5 Strategies For Business Growth Many People ForgetJanuary 2, 2019 by Martin Zwilling 252SHARESFacebookTwitterLinkedin Filed Under: Advice, Management, Resources, Strategic In this age of constant market evolution and new technology, there is no such thing as a static business that is self-sustaining. The traditional approach of implementing stable and repeatable processes, so that your business can run itself, no longer works. Just ask former big brand companies, like Blockbuster, Kodak, Lehman Brothers, and Sears, what happened to them.As a small business advisor, I always recommend that being “self-sustaining” requires taking frequent and aggressive measures to step out ahead of the pack, including yourself before you start feeling the pain of change and new competitors around you. Specific measures that go beyond the traditional linear thinking include the following:Develop new products for your existing segment. Rather than enhancing the offering you have, develop and offer new products that capitalize on the customers that you already know well. Competitors tend to focus on price and other variations to existing offerings. Too many businesses only think of new products when in crisis mode.For example, Facebook added WhatsApp as a cross-platform messaging and Voice over IP (VoIP) service to enhance the self-sustaining growth of their social media platform before any downturn. WhatsApp alone now has a user base of over one and a half billion users.Introduce disruptive technologies to this domain. Rather than rely only on linear thinking, the best entrepreneurs are always looking to offer in parallel a more dramatic new alternative. Since these usually require a large investment, and more time, including customer education, they need to be started while your current business is still healthy.Apple did this with the introduction of the smartphone, which altered the value chain for computers, video, and software, which were already staples that they knew well. Richard Branson is doing it with Virgin Galactic space rides, without impacting his Virgin Airlines.Populating new domains to sustain your market. If your product is already unique, then new domains would include adding online to enhance storefronts, and alternatives for business to complement consumer offerings. These allow you to get new growth without fighting existing competitors. Defining new domains is even more powerful.Elon Musk is doing both of these, first by expanding his Tesla electric vehicle initiatives beyond cars, into self-driving taxis and trucks, and secondly by entering new domains of transportation with SpaceX and Hyperloop. He entertains no sense of a static business.Redefine your product to reach a new category. This strategy, often called breakaway positioning, has the intent of expanding your product opportunity into a previously unreachable category. It also has the advantage over competitors of retaining existing customers, while at the same time attracting new customers from another category.For example, Swatch was able through marketing to define their watches as fashion accessories, as well as timepieces, greatly expanding their segment. Uber added UberLUX, with stylish high-end cars, to declare access to the limousine category.Implement a plan for regular strategic acquisitions. Unlike a total reliance on internal innovation and organic growth, growth through acquisition or merger is generally faster and can be self-sustaining as a process. Further, acquisition offers other advantages such as easier financing, instant economies of scale, and new market penetration.For example, even the giant Amazon acquired Whole Foods as a growth entryway into the competitive grocery and food industry. Apple acquired Shazam to quickly boost Apple Music by letting users identify songs, movies, and commercials from short audio clips.The reality is that you can never stop changing your business, and still be self-sustaining. The strategies outlined here may seem intuitively obvious, but they require real effort and discipline to implement, perhaps why so few companies consistently outperform the market. Change is the only constant in business, so now is the time for making your plan for regular change a priority.Reprinted by permission.PREVIOUS POSTNEXT POST
