Dov Seidman joins us on Edgewise to discuss his book How: Why How We Do Anything Means Everything. Dov states that "we live in a world where what we do matters, but it doesn't matter as much as how we do what we do"; we are in a new era of behavior where our actions can affect so much more in ways they never could in the past. This is especially important to acknowledge as behavior has become the greatest source of our competitive advantage. Dov describes what he calls the "how principles" and why these values guide our behavior. He will explain his solution for making jobs more interesting, inspiring and satisfying using such examples as Southwest Airlines.

CEO of Parkwood Corp, chairman and CEO of the Jack, Joseph, and Morton Mandel Foundation, Morton Mandel has reached great success in both his financial and personal life. In his book It's All About Who... Morton talks about his humble beginnings from working a summer job for his uncle in the wholesale auto parts business, to owning that same business with his brothers in July 1940. Though Morton joined the Army in World War II and left the business world behind him, it wasn't until after the war Morton and his brothers took a hard look at why their business was struggling to turn a major profit. Morton and his brothers realized that in an over-saturated market you have to come up with a different solution to attract customers; that sometimes business owners need to take a step back to see what their customers really need. What they learned propelled them into the future to live richer lives both monetarily and in the quality of life. Now Morton shares what he has learned about what a CEO is worth and how to hire and maintain "A employees". AMA is a world-class leadership development provider in more than 40 countries worldwide.

Technology has always been used to enhance manual system making them automated, resulting to less effort, time and cost. It is meant to automate processes in many fields. By looking at the live examples of new ways of selling, buying, banking, transportation, marketing and even news distribution, it is apparent that everything had become much easier than before by utilizing various technologies. Technology, therefore, is a key of development in many aspects. This book discusses how we can utilize mobile devices and web service technology to enhance the current queue system which will help both the service provider (e.g. business) and the customer and increase productivity, performance and reduce cost and time for both parties. It is about a mobile application that helps the users to interact with the service provider by withdrawing a queue ticket without the need to be physically present in the service providers' premises. It enables customers (users) to book a queue remotely for any services of any registered organization with this solution. It is an enhancement of the current traditional Queue System.

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2008 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,0, University of applied sciences, Munich, language: English, abstract: HP is an international giant in the information technology industry. The company offers a wide product portfolio from personal computers (PC), notebooks, serves, storage, printers, scanners, and digital camera to IT services. The company features a phenomenal growth history and has developed from a 'garage' with a working capital of $538 in 1938 to a leading global provider with $100 billion revenue. However the global competition becomes fiercer today and HP has to face with different competitors in all business segments. Can HP continue its success story and beat the global competitors? This question will be tried to answer in the present study. In this study the internal and external environment factors effecting HP's business are analyzed. Thereby industry's economic features and competitive environment, e.g. market segments, market size and growth, trends, competition, and driving forces are studied. Moreover, the SWOT of HP and its biggest global competitors as well as financial performance of HP over the last three business years (2005 - 2007) are analyzed. The diversified business portfolio of HP is evaluated using the Nine Cell Matrix and concrete recommendations for the senior management board of HP are provided. It could be shown that despite fierce competition HP could remain its pole position in the world market. HP is worldwide No. 1 in the printing, PC, and server market and No. 2 in storage business. HP exhibited an impressive financial performance in the last 3 years. For the future HP should intensify strategic alliances and partnerships and boost the acquisition to strengthen competitive capability and to gain market share quickly. The company should follow strategies like rapid expanding into new geography markets, rapid product development and push the product innovation, penetration also in low-end market segments, expanding into online sale and business, and offering complete solution based on broad portfolio in order to meet customer needs. Moreover HP should improve its supply chain management, optimize manufacturing cost, and strengthen the effective marketing and channel partnership to boost the completive strengths.
The release of Microsoft Content Management Server (MCMS) Service Pack 2 opens up the world of ASP.NET 2.0 to MCMS developers. Written by the masters of MCMS, this book shows you how to use the new features of ASP.NET 2.0 that everyone is talking about in your MCMS development. You will first learn how to install and configure MCMS SP2. There are two approaches to setting up a development environment for SP2: an upgrade from a previous SP1a installation or starting from scratch and building a fresh installation including SP2. Of course, both approaches are covered. You will become familiar with the MCMS Service Pack 2 development environment, and create custom Visual Studio 2005 templates to overcome some of the issues which are present with the templates shipped with MCMS SP2. After that, its time to look at some of the most exciting features of ASP.NET 2.0, and how you can make use of them in MCMS: master pages, site navigation, themes, and the membership provider model. One of the coolest features introduced with ASP.NET 2.0 is master pages, which allow developers to enforce common layout and behaviour across pages within an application. You will learn about the benefits of using master pages and see a step-by-step guide for implementing them in your MCMS applications, where they become master templates! ASP.NET 2.0 introduces a whole new way of implementing site navigation, driven by site maps. By programmatically adding channels and postings to a site map you will see how to smoothly integrate these controls to any MCMS site. To customize the look of your site, we will see how a common look and feel can be applied efficiently to a MCMS site by using ASP.NET 2.0 themes. An essential customization required for themes to work correctly in an MCMS site is a must-read feature of this chapter. MCMS has its own role based authorization and user management system which cannot be extended. However, the new ASP.NET 2.0 Membership Provider Model and the shipped controls can be used within MCMS applications to improve the implementation of Forms Authentication and provide a more elegant solution for authenticating against an external store. A collection of tips and tricks round off the book, including using the Provider Model design pattern to ease migration to Office SharePoint Portal Server.
