In it, Terrence Ryan clearly outlines common, problematic personalities—“skeptics”—and provides proven solutions for bringing about progressive change.

Shipping imperfect software is like going into debt. When you incur debt, the illusion of doing things faster can lead to exponential growth in the cost of maintaining software. Software debt takes five major forms: technical, quality, configuration management, design, and platform experience. In today’s rush to market, software debt is inevitable. And that’s okay—if you’re careful about the debt you incur, and if you quickly pay it back.

The automobile has come to symbolize the essence of a modern industrial society. Perhaps more than any other single icon, it is associated with a desire for independence and freedom of movement; it is an expression of economic status and personal style. Automobile production is also critically important to the major industrial economies of the world. In the United States, for instance, about 5 percent of all workers are employed directly (including fuel production and distribution) by the auto industry.

Internal combustion engines (ICE) are the main sources of powering for almost all
road vehicles, yet many other machines too. Being under strength development for a
number of years, they have already reached a relatively high level of technical
excellence and now they also produce acceptable output parameters. Still, they are not
devoid of drawbacks. Harmful exhaust emissions can be pointed as the most
important here. This problem is the main focus of interest for automotive researchers
Clay and clay minerals represent the youngest minerals in the Earth’s crust. Clays are
irregularly distributed in lithosphere, as their concentration increases due to the
weathering, hydrothermal changes, including anthropogenic influences. Clay minerals
occur in all types of sediments and sedimentary rocks and are common in
hydrothermal deposits. The interdisciplinary character of clay science follows from the
information obtained from the methodology and theory of other natural and technical
The Demand Index combines price and volume in such a way that it is often a leading indicator of price change. The Demand Index was developed by James Sibbet. Interpretation: Mr. Sibbet defined six "rules" for the Demand Index: 1. A divergence between the Demand Index and prices suggests an approaching weakness in price.

Modern organizations have been required to make significant transformations
in response to an accelerating rate of change in technical, social, political, and
economic forces. As a result of these changing forces, the management process
has become more difficult, requiring greater skills aimed at guiding the future
course of an organization in a rapidly evolving and uncertain world. These skills
are the essence of strategic management.
Strategic management is concerned with deciding in advance what an organization
should do in the future (strategic planning).
