The IT Governance Institute (ITGI) (www.itgi.org) was established in 1998
to advance international thinking and standards in directing and controlling
an enterprise’s information technology. Effective IT governance helps ensure
that IT supports business goals, optimizes business investment in IT, and
appropriately manages IT-related risks and opportunities. The IT Governance
Institute offers symposia, original research, and case studies to assist enterprise
leaders and boards of directors in their IT governance responsibilities....

Massachusetts Institute of Technology and PA Consulting Group. The analyses
presented here were performed by a team directed by the author, with principal
contributions by Lauri Mitchell and Mark Bamford, both formerly of Pugh-Roberts
Associates. We thank PA Consulting Group, and in particular Paul Thornton and
Stephen Payne, for funding this study, and Thomas Moebus, MIT Director of Corporate
Relations, for his overall support of the research program.
Excess abdominal fat, assessed by measurement of waist circumference or waist-to-hip ratio, is independently associated with higher risk for diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease. Measurement of the waist circumference is a surrogate for visceral adipose tissue and should be performed in the horizontal plane above the iliac crest. Cut points that define higher risk for men and women based on ethnicity have been proposed by the International Diabetes Federation (Table 75-3).
The three restrictive-malabsorptive bypass procedures combine the elements of gastric restriction and selective malabsorption. These procedures include Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB), biliopancreatic diversion (BPD), and biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (BPDDS) (Fig. 75-2). RYGB is the most commonly performed and accepted bypass procedure. It may be performed with an open incision or laparoscopically.
These definitions are placed in the historical order of their appearance in the language.
So the earliest use of a handbookwas as a set of instructions which members of particular
occupations kept at hand in order to be able to refer to them when they were uncertain of
how to tackle a problem at work. The most recent definition, by way of contrast, refers
to a scholarly book consisting of separate essays or articles.

From the very beginning of the transition from the traditional purchasing system reviews to the
redesigned assessment approach that replaced them, it was understood that further refinement
and continuous improvement was planned. Consistent with that long-term strategy, and building
on the originally redesigned federal purchasing assessments, the business system assessment
models of the PEAmembers have evolved to be more aligned with the Balanced Scorecard
(BSC) approach to performance measurement and management, which is currently in use by
many “world class” private corporations.
Human resources alignment means integrating decisions about people with decisions about the results an organization is trying to obtain. By integrating human resources management (HRM) into the agency planning process, emphasizing human resources (HR) activities that support broad agency mission goals, and building a strong relationship between HR and management, agencies are able to ensure that the management of human resources contributes to mission accomplishment and that managers are held accountable for their HRM decisions.

Supervisors, managers and their co-workers seemed to be attending an
awful lot of training courses, but this didn’t seem to have the impact on ‘onthe-
job’ performance that it needed to have. In fact many managers were
disillusioned with much of the training and development activity going on.
At the time, most training programmes suffered from a lack of measurable,
clearly specified outcomes and measured results. Most training programmes
were evaluated on the ‘Did you enjoy it?’ measure, or people sat for a threehour
In this study, we make use of a complete dataset of property trades by institutional-grade
REITs who are legally mandated to report such trades to the SEC in their 10-K and 10-Q reports,
thus providing both complete trading information and eliminating selection bias. We augment
this information with a dataset of property trades made by portfolio managers of private entities,
such as commingled real-estate funds, who have legally committed to disclose this information to
a private data collector under a strict non-disclosure agreement.
Contractors provide the Army with services in a wide variety of settings
and circumstances, both domestic and international. Recent
pressures on the Army to rely more heavily on contractors and the
increasingly ill-defined nature of the battlefield raise serious questions
for policymakers. Is the Army getting what it needs from its combat
service support (CSS) contracts? Do those contracts present any
unrecognized, unmitigated, or unnecessary risks? If the Army is not
getting what it needs or is accepting inappropriate risks, what can it
do about it?...
To be effective, risk management needs to be an ongoing and meaningful element in the management of the
plan. The plan needs to do more than a ‘tick and flick’ exercise at the commencement of the project; it needs
to identify who is responsible for reviewing risks on a regular basis, and how this will be done.
Among all the clinical indications for which radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians,
neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists (and others examining disorders of
the brain) order and read brain PET scans, demand is greatest for those pertaining
to dementia and related disorders. This demand is driven by the sheer prevalence of
those conditions, coupled with the fact that the differential diagnosis for causes of
cognitive impairment is wide and often difficult to distinguish clinically.
