  • One of the keys to using the logframe successfully is understanding what the definitions mean in operational terms, and in particular the relationship between Results and Project Purpose. Although managers are accountable for delivering the Results, they cannot control the behaviour of the target group.

However, this does not mean that project managers are not responsible for achieving the Project Purpose.

  • But what does this trend in competition do for the cities? The answer is certainly not definitive, but in its emerging outlines, it is disturbing yet also offers hope. To the extent that this tendency makes cheap labor locations around the world more accessible, it fur- ther amplifies the competitive disadvantage of urban locations in the United States. The impact of increases in trade with low-wage countries on U.S. employment, especially on low-skilled workers, has been hotly debated (Freeman, 1995; Wood, 1995).

  • It was the best of times; it was the worst of times. A decade ago the science fiction author David Brin published the Transparent Society.1 It was his tale of two cities, set 20 years in the future. Brin had a vision, or rather he had two.

Brin decided to pose the reader a straight choice: Which of these two outcomes do you want? Brin told of two cities twenty years hence. From a distance both cities look very alike....

  • The concept of knowledge-crafting proposed here draws from the work of Walter Ong. About 30 years ago, Ong (1978) argued that a skilled author creates a fictional audience for the text to understand its meaning from the prospective readers’ point of view.

  • The risk that one will outlive one’s money is best referred to as “longevity risk.” The traditional way that savers have managed this risk is by purchasing life annuities or by having annuitylike cash flow streams purchased for them through defined- benefit (DB) pension plans. (Social Security can also be understood, at least from the viewpoint of the recipient, as an inflation-indexed life annuity.) DB pension plans are declining in importance, however, and a great many workers do not have such a plan.
