.... Next, we look inside the organization to identify which functions or departments deliver customer value. Although the finger is usually pointed at sales, this is not always the case. In addition, ArchPoint develops customer, channel, and end user segmentation, and analyzes 1) product/market performance and trends, 2) brand and company reputation, and 3) value proposition. Facilitating an executive overview and debriefing session Once the data is collected and analyzed, the ArchPoint team invites the leadership team to review a comprehensive, detailed summary of our findings. During the debrief session, we ask each team member to record observations to be used for a later exercise. The review begins with sharing the macro trends, major positive themes and opportunities for improvement for the company. We give feedback in all of the categories listed in the diagram including a SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) based on input from the interviews. Furthermore, we present detailed analyses, graphs and even quotes from the interviewees (though the source always remains anonymous). At the end of the session, which can take 4-6 hours, the team has undergone a detailed and brutally honest assessment of their current state. Defining of a company objective statement We let the feedback settle and turn our attention to the next exercise, creating an objective statement for the company. An objective statement will answer the questions, “Why do we exist...

...Concentrica Associates “Proven Pool of Sales Talent Working For You” Why Concentrica? Many of the companies we speak to despair at the idea of telemarketing because of bad experiences in the past. Nobody likes poorly qualified sales appointments that turn out to be a complete waste of time and we at Concentrica Associates are no different. We understand the pitfalls and our experienced team therefore only deliver highly effective lead generation, business development and outsourced sales services, across a wide portfolio of IT based solutions. With enviable credentials and a proven history in delivering effective business development services, our key differentiators are manifest in the facts that all projects undertaken have 'hands on' involvement from at least one Concentrica director and that we never use inexperienced graduates. These considerations are vital when articulating the more complex sales proposition and importantly, where a requirement exists to minimize the lead time to effective project initiation. The approach therefore, which our long term clients particularly value is to provide a seamless extension to their sales force. We are a highly professional, niche operation, working with IT solutions companies of all sizes, from the start-up enterprise to some of our strategic business partners which include Microsoft, CA Technologies and BMC. We would very much welcome the opportunity to discuss how Concentrica can shape and implement your business......

... are elected each year at an annual meeting. Although there are exceptions (discussed next), the general idea is “one share, one vote” (not one shareholder, one vote). Corporate democracy is thus very different from our political democracy. With corporate democracy, the “golden rule” prevails absolutely.3 Directors are elected at an annual shareholders’ meeting by a vote of the holders of a majority of shares who are present and entitled to vote. However, the exact mechanism for electing directors differs across companies. The most important difference is whether shares must be voted cumulatively or voted straight. To illustrate the two different voting procedures, imagine that a corporation has two shareholders: Smith with 20 shares and Jones with 80 shares. Both want to be a director. Jones does not want Smith, however. We assume there are a total of four directors to be elected. The effect of cumulative voting is to permit minority participation.4 If cumulative voting is permitted, the total number of votes that each shareholder may cast is determined first. This is usually calculated as the number of shares (owned or controlled) multiplied by the number of directors to be elected. With cumulative voting, the directors are elected all at once. In our example, this means that the top four vote getters will be the new directors. A shareholder can distribute votes however he/she wishes. Will Smith get a seat on the board? If we ignore the possibility of a five-way tie, then......

Winning athletes have a mastermind group so that they will make fewer mistakes and take less time achieving their goals. A mastermind group is an assortment of people dedicated to give you the best advice, feedback, training, etc., so that you can achieve your goals faster. The mastermind group also gives you encouragement when needed. In sports, this might be a coach, a trainer, a physical trainer, manager, and agent. In your situation at work, it might be the following:  A mentor that has intensive corporate knowledge and can maneuver you around “corporate landmines”  A human resources specialist with thorough knowledge of skills needed for a promotion  A manager that wants to showcase your skills to impress their manager If you are thinking about or have already started a business, it might be the following:    Lawyer(s) Accountant Tax expert http://www.thesykesgrp.com/ – Jump Start Your Success!

...Summary vs Executive Summary Summary and Executive summary are two terms that are used quite often in education and business areas differently. A summary is a short or a brief account, sometimes elaborate too of the various events of a play. An executive summary on the other hand is a term used in business for a short document that summarizes a longer report, especially a business report. An executive summary is normally a condensed version of the full business document. Hence it needs skill on the part of the writer to execute an executive summary. On the other hand a summary should give salient features of any given aspect of a novel, or a short story or a play. This is the difference between a summary and an executive summary. You can write a summary of any particular episode of a novel or any other fiction written by Jane Austen. The particular summary should contain the various events of the episode in a nutshell or briefly. On the other hand an executive summary should be written in non-technical language. This is the main difference between the two. An executive summary should necessarily have a conclusion. On the other hand a conclusion is not necessary while writing a summary of a play or any scene of a play. An executive summary should ultimately make a business recommendation. No such intention is included in the writing of a summary. An executive summary should contain short and concise paragraphs. On the other hand a summary need not have short and concise...

... that they were unable to do this and the remaining 35 per cent were unsure. While there is a lot of anecdotal support that the Internal Communication function provides value, we’ve found that the facts don’t really hit home until leaders see the evidence it in relation to their organisation. It’s all about measuring how internal communications matters to the broader business. HOW TO DRIVE ACTION? Sadly, even good research sometimes hits the buffers. The most common complaint we hear from professionals after conducting research is that “nothing really happened”. Unless great data and analytics drive action and improvement, the whole thing has been a wasted investment and is likely to lose credibility at senior executive level. The point of measuring is that you continuously track your efforts while staying tuned in with your audiences – and then act accordingly. That is how you stay effective. The reason why research efforts sometimes end in a blind alley can commonly be linked to three causes: 1. Data overload: Most research studies produce a vast amount of data and Internal Communication research is no exception. Never-ending slide decks and spread sheets quickly make you lose the will to live! Instead you should use Smart Analytics to boil down the key points of your data: the things that matter – as opposed to just describing every data point from multiple angles. You need to use data “condensation” techniques to help this. You may also find producing a simple......

...Work of the Holy Spirit how it may link to my Personal and Business Life Chuck Johnson BB202 Sir Mark Gibbs Montreat College Work of the Holy Spirit After Jesus completed His ministry here on earth, He ascended into heaven with a promise of sending a Helper. While on earth, Jesus required His followers and disciples to believe in Him and most importantly follow Him. In John 3:13 and 6:38, Jesus claims to have come from Heaven to fulfill the will of His father. After this achievement, He tells the disciples that he goes to prepare a place for them. Before ascending to Heaven, He promised not to leave without leaving behind a comforter. In John 14:16, Jesus promises to ask the Father to send the Holy Spirit to help the disciples and to always be with them. Therefore, in every day of my life, the Holy Spirit plays a crucial role in my personal, business and Christian life. This paper thus discusses the works of the Holy Spirit in my daily life. Upon reading God’s word, there is a revelation that the Holy Spirit convicts us in our day to day lives. In this respect, the Holy Spirit acts as an agent who convicts all Christians of their sins. In this work of the Holy Spirit, the Christians are brought to the awareness of personal sins and the sinful structures they are involved in. According to John 16:8, the Holy Spirit was to come and show the people the truth...

... Arkansas’ Information Technology Research Institute, a part of the Sam Walton College of Business, releases a report based on its preliminary study of the impact of RFID on reducing retail out-of-stocks (OOS). The researchers conclude that RFID reduced OOS at store level by 16% over non-RFID based stores. January 2006: Wal-Mart says it is piloting a program with a few suppliers and EPCGlobal to generate advance ship notices for supplier shipments based on RFID reads. January 2006: Supposed deadline for the “next 200 suppliers” to begin sending some tagged product to some DCs, though relatively few do in any meaningful way. March 2006: Wal-Mart says it is working on two “proof of concept” pilots for using sensors along with RFID tags to track produce and environmental temperatures as the products move along the supply chain. April 2006: Wal-Mart says it will phase out the use of Gen 1 tags by in favor of Gen 2 by mid-year, saying it will no longer accept the use of Gen 1 tags on the cases and pallets it receives from its suppliers after June 30. April 2006: Linda Dillman leaves as CIO to take an executive role in Human Resources. Rollin Ford, previously head of supply chain and logistics, becomes CIO. Ford subsequently takes a much lower profile approach to RFID. September, 2006: Wal-Mart announces that by January 31, 2007, another 500 of Wal-Mart's 3,900 stores will have RFID readers installed. If it happened, that would bring the total of RFID-enabled Wal-Mart stores......

...West Central Leadership Development Program MGT 3560 Organization Development & Change “Leadership capacity is something which everyone is born with, but not everyone enacts – and it is only those who act on their capacity that truly become leaders. The idea of a leadership programme should be to harness this leadership capacity and encourage individuals to act upon it – to lead small teams of people and apply that leadership in business” (Little, 2008). West Central is a human service organization that serves the low income. Most of our staff that has direct client contact are very compassionate people, but, lack the leadership skills to properly guide the staff they supervise. We also have a number of staff that have been promoted and are now in a supervisory position, and while their skill set for completing the mechanics of the jobs is there, the leadership component is missing. As identified by Little, we need a leadership program that will harness the staff’s leadership capacity so they can lead. Objectives In an interview with the Executive Director of West Central, the objective of the leadership development program would be to enhance leadership skills for the participants by providing appropriate activities, experiences, training to increase the probability of success for each participant; establish a peer coaching network that involves the participants and West Central’s management team and provide ongoing assessment of the progress of the program as...
