EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Families need photographs to capture the special moments of their lives. Families of professionals are busy, and if too much time goes by between photos, these moments are lost forever. Babies, especially, grow fast and parents need photos of them several times a year.

While nearly everyone has a camera for snapshots, people need professional quality photos when they will be shown to an important audience, and when people want to be seen in the best light. The Internet has expanded the use of photos, making it possible for anyone to send them or to publish them for wide viewing.

Professionals often have business needs for high-quality photos, and through this familiarity, they acquire a taste for them. When these professionals need photos to preserve memories, or to display family photos when they entertain at home, they have the budget and the desire for similarly high-quality photos. Just as they appoint their homes with fine furniture and decorations, the photos on their walls need to exhibit their standards of quality.

Most people use professional photo studios only on rare occasions, such as weddings, yearbook pictures, or baby portraits. Because the client has to initiate the call, many special moments are lost and the studio loses potential business. Photo studios generally charge a large fee for CDs of their clients' digital images. For these reasons, most photo studios are rarely used by families as a whole.

This photography business plan shows how Al Malki’s Photo Studio will meet the needs of professionals and their families to capture the special moments in their lives and present them in the best light. We will establish a relationship in which we initiate the calls to keep their photos up to date. Digital files of their photos will be available for free by e-mail, or with a nominal fee for CD. Because of our relationship with the families, when something big like a wedding comes, there's no place else they would go.

The opening of Al Malki's Photo Studio will mark a change in the way professional photography is delivered. Rather than being a rare place to visit, this photo studio will be a fun part of a family's lives, helping them capture special moments and share them in a digital world.

The key element of Al Malki's strategy is to reach parents of newborn babies in target neighborhoods soon after they leave the hospital. Parents and other relatives want baby photos several times a year, and this pattern can form the basis of a long-term relationship. We will take the initiative to phone parents to take pictures instead of waiting for them to remember, when parents request this service.

Referrals will be solicited from clients through specialty advertising to reach their friends and family.
The target market is female professionals. Professionals are more likely to have the means and taste for professional photographs.

The world is becoming more digital and we will exceed the competition in providing access to digital files easily and affordably.

...Initial Bid February 24, 2010. Brookfield announces that it would inject $2.63 billion in cash to assist GGP in exiting from bankruptcy. Brookfield’s proposal also included creating a new company, General Growth Opportunities (GGO), which would hold certain noncore assets, such as the company's MPC and landmark developments such as South Street Seaport.

...By Göran Goldkuhl ACTION and MEDIA in INTERORGANIZATIONAL INTERACTION T Coordinating the role of IT with business processes. he language-action perspective (LAP) has contributed to several models of coordination of work. In the seminal work of Winograd and Flores [12] the conversation-foraction (cfa) scheme was introduced. This scheme describes, as a kind of generic construct, how two actors come to an agreement about what is to be done. There is someone who asks for the work and someone to perform the work. There are several approaches to business modeling following the cfa scheme. The two most famous approaches seem to be Action Workflow [9] and DEMO [1]; see the article by Dietz in this section for more on the DEMO methodology. The general idea is to get a business model of how people, through conversation, coordinate their work. Such a business model, focusing on coordination, should be seen as foundational for the development of supporting software. The LAP spirit is to consider software as a tool for coordination. COMMUNICATIONS OF THE ACM May 2006/Vol. 49, No. 5 53 Action Workflow and DEMO are general business imply. BAT is a generic model for describing busimodeling methods based on LAP.

...Dash, don't leave me!” the filly sobbed, all her tiny weight pressed against the door. “Please—I don't want to be alone!” “I'll be back! I promise! Now you promise me something! Promise me you'll not leave this airship until one of us girls comes to get you!” “Rainbow—” “Promise me! Pinkie Pie Swear!” “I-I swear,” the filly hiccuped, fighting back her tears. “Everything's gonna work out. You'll see!” Rainbow Dash's hoof let go of the filly's head as she trotted backwards towards the porthole in the side of the gondola. “Seriously, kid—Would I let the world be any less cool by disappearing?” A wink, a flick of the tail, and she was gone. The little pony sat there—trembling—in the dark shadow of the arcane vault, with the penumbra of light from two opposite windows acting as her only view to an apocalyptic crescendo. For what seemed like an hour of creeping terror, she listened to the thunderous echoes of her own heartbeat. A sour tumor formed in the base of her throat. With a trembling tongue, she reared herself up and started calling—mewling—Rainbow Dash's name, then Fluttershy's, then even Applejack's. When nopony and nothing answered her foalish cries, she cleared her throat and—in a braver breath—tried a name that she had barely come to comprehend, much less believe in. “H-Harmony?” It was around that very moment that a tremendous shockwave ricocheted across the roof of the world. The filly felt it, as the entire body of the gondola rattled like a ship dashed against a......
