Most prefaces tend to focus on the technical content of the textbook, why the author felt the need to write it, what makes it different and most of all why readers should buy it. However, this was such an extraordinary learning experience for me, that I thought I should share some of it with you. Near the end of session 1998-9, I was asked as Programme Leader for a then HND/BSc Manufacturing to consider revamping the course. During the process of developing this new programme, the focus of which was manufacturing management and in particular manufacturing planning and control, I...
Despite the U.S. armed forces’ historical role as a model for racial integration and decades of Department of Defense (DoD) efforts to promote racial and ethnic diversity, many groups are still underrepresented within the department, especially among DoD’s active duty and civilian leadership. This is a particularly important issue for DoD because many military leaders believe that maintaining a diverse workforce is critical for the department’s national security mission. This report discusses the initial steps that DoD should take in developing a department-wide plan to achie...

“This is an excellent book for anyone interested in the important
discussion of stock option expensing and, more significantly, the
optimal use of stock options in compensation plans. It is written
from the point of view of an experienced and knowledgeable com-
pensation consultant who has advised board compensation com-
mittees and talked with many people outside the field considering
the economic and incentive effects of the overuse of stock options in
the 90s.”—John M. Biggs, former Chairman & CEO of TIAA-
Financing new equipment -- from computers to phone systems to capital equipment and other gear you need to run your company -- is a major issue for many small business owners. Leasing, instead of purchasing, can be a cost-effective option, particularly if you don't have the cash on hand, but need the equipment.
In fact, you might want to consider leasing even if you do have the cash to invest. By leasing, you might find that you can regulate your cash flow more effectively, because you have predictable, regular monthly installments as opposed to a single lump sum payment. Plus, leasing......
The teaching and the practicing of corporate finance are more challenging and exciting
than ever before. The last decade has seen fundamental changes in financial markets and
financial instruments. In the early years of the 21st century, we still see announcements in
the financial press about such matters as takeovers, junk bonds, financial restructuring, initial
public offerings, bankruptcy, and derivatives. In addition, there is the new recognition
of “real” options (Chapters 21 and 22), private equity and venture capital (Chapter 19), and
the disappearing dividend (Chapter 18).
Bearing in mind that the (Specify kind of system, for example: Broking system) has many options
available within it and that the (Specify kind of system, for example: Broking system) programs will be
used from a common source, there may be some discrepancies on options used by the participants, for
instance, (Specify things that might be out of alignment within the specified system, for example:
GUI applications, Ledger Archive or Check Production). It is not therefore guaranteed that a fully
equivalent system can be provided at the host site....
Despite speculation in the financial press that the final guidance on internal control would be essentially similar to April’s consultative document, the final guidance was significantly tightened by the removal of the option for a single annual review. This should act to discourage bureaucratic procedures that provide neither the depth nor quality of information provided by the now required regular review process.
This book is written for those who wish to enhance their understanding of and
competencies with constructively managing conflict. Our interest in developing
this resource came at the request of government and community practitioners with
whom we worked on various projects, ranging from pedagogy in the classroom to
strategic planning and consensus-building in the community. This wide range of
demand underscores the limited scope of research on effective dispute resolution
and the infancy of conflict management as an area of practice.
Customer Relationship Management (CRM) is growing in importance due to the challenging business
environment faced by organizations throughout the world today. It is particularly critical in industries
undergoing changes in traditional channel configuration. CRM is a means of addressing increasing
competition, changing economic conditions and promotional dependence through the use of intimate
customer knowledge; knowledge gained through relationship development and past marketing programs.

Communication and service delivery go hand in hand. People will not be able to use repro-
ductive health services unless they know about them. Once people are motivated to
improve their reproductive health, by using family planning methods, for example, they
need information and counseling about appropriate methods, correct use, side effects, and
the concerns that most people have about adopting new practices.
As service providers and communicators reach out more to men and their partners, they
must learn more about their clients’ information needs and how to provide counseling for

In spring of 2001, John Pepper, then chairman of Procter and Gamble, discovered that
members of P&G’s competitive analysis department engaged in corporate spying
practices at its rival corporation, Unilever.
The spying operation gathered about eighty
documents detailing Unilever’s plans for its U. S. hair care business over the next three
years, including information on its launch-plans, prices, and margins.
came as a complete surprise to Pepper, who had not commissioned nor condoned this
