The traditional view of the relationship between business and the arts is
very much a one-way affair: organisations may endorse, fund or publicise
the arts but the arts have nothing to offer from a business perspective. The
Value of Arts for Business challenges this view by showing how the arts,
in the form of Arts-based Initiatives (ABIs), can be used to enhance valuecreation
capacity and boost business performance. The book introduces
and explains three models that show how organisations can successfully
implement and manage ABIs.

Second, the high levels of banks’ discretionary capital observed do not appear to be

significantly more capital.

breeder farms. These breeder farms depend on producers of parent stock.

South-east Asian components of our population are increasing
rapidly. The ethnic mix in each organisation is likely to be quite
different, so the best approach may be to develop anthropometric
distributions for each organisation from different data sets, using
the proportions of each ethnic group. Some applications of
anthropometric data are discussed below.

Isn’t it strange that the animal we used to be developed into the creature
that we now are? How – and why – did human intelligence and culture
evolve? How did we evolve minds, philosophies and technologies? And now that
we have them, where are they taking us?
The orthodox answer to these questions looks inside our brains to see
what they are made of and how the various components operate.

Dermer and Lucas (1986) introduce a political perspective, stating that the definition of control

behaviour of his subordinates), objectives and strategy (an effort is made to attain the set objectives
through the effective and efficient combination of the organisation’s means and resources), analysis of

We demonstrate a web-based environment for development and testing of different pedestrian route instruction-giving systems. The environment contains a City Model, a TTS interface, a game-world, and a user GUI including a simulated street-view. We describe the environment and components, the metrics that can be used for the evaluation of pedestrian route instruction-giving systems, and the shared challenge which is being organised using this environment.
