The Virgin Way: How to Listen, Learn, Laugh and Lead

He has taken on monsters like British Airways and won, and giants like Coca-Cola and lost. Now, in THE VIRGIN WAY, Richard gives you an inside look at his strikingly different swashbuckling style of leadership. Learn how fun, family, passion and the dying art of listening became key components of the leadership style of a man who dropped out of school at sixteen, suffers from dyslexia, and has never worked for anyone but himself.

Government Schemes and Impact on Rural Livelihood

Автор:

In recent years a number of socio-economic development schemes have been introduced to uplift the condition of rural masses in India. In the past Govt. had sponsored several schemes to eliminate rural poverty. But the purpose of generating an all-round enhanced livelihood opportunity based on creation of an improved ambience has only partially been served by such programmes. The recent focus, therefore, has been on the assets / processes/ activity framework concerned with not only poverty reduction but also promoting sustainable livelihood enhancing strategies and access to assets. In this context a study has been made to assess the efficacy of some of these Govt. schemes and their impact on peoples» livelihood in Birbhum, district,West Bengal(India). However the sheer diversity of such schemes and differences in their accounting procedure and fund management along with various layers of implementation, often complicate the execution by making the system cumbersome. Hence an incisive analysis has also been made for mooting a proposal for the integration and consolidation of such schemes under a unique programme with uniform guidelines and flexibility in administrative order.

Product Development based on Competitive Advantage & Government Policy

Автор:

As global competition intensifies, transnational corporations are internationalizing even the most knowledge-intensive corporate functions, such as research and development (R&D). Today, corporations in industries such as automobiles are establishing R&D facilities in selected developing countries. They do this to enhance their efficiency, to access expanding pools of scientists and engineers, and to meet the demands in these countries. These recent trends have important implications for the international division of labor and stress the need for coherent national policies to ensure benefits from this evolution. This study aims to identify the localization of product development activities based on Porter’s diamond model for competitive advantage of location, and Kuchiki’s flowchart approach for government policies. The analysis is based on case studies of automobile assemblers that have headquarters in Triad markets and facilities in Brazil. Brazilian competitive advantages of location are investigated, and implications for host government policies proposed, from the viewpoint of leveraging location specific advantages for R&D localization.

Effective Strategies to Ensure Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery

Автор:

Revision with unchanged content. In a society where individuals and corporations have become increasingly reliant upon data and information technology (IT), many have experienced/witnessed the devastation that occurs when disaster strikes. Being well prepared is more than conforming, it is becoming necessary. How does a corporation plan ahead to anticipate such occurrences? Business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) are strategies implemented to increase the likelihood of effective recovery from major disaster. This book aims to examine whether the ranking of critical success factors (CSFs) for implementing a BC/DR program has changed from previous research, specifically subsequent to the events of September 11th, 2001. Second, this publication will attempt to further increase contribution to the academic and practitioner communities by outlining several CSFs not referenced before. Targeting academics and professionals alike with an interest in the fields of contingency planning and risk management, qualitative and quantitative analyses were conducted. Using this multi-method approach, four sets of CSFs were proposed and propositions were partially or fully confirmed. Have CSFs changed since the days of mainframe dominance and the importance of data and IT? Have “people and processes” taken over from “hardware and information”? Such questions, and many more, are answered in this book.
