Experienced online marketers have heard this saying at one point or another: we just don’t have the resources to do what you’re asking. Maybe the resources aren’t there or maybe your project is last in line. Either way, somebody else is determining the destiny of your plans and your message just isn’t being heard. So, many marketers scramble for decision makers’ attention. They’ll set up big meetings, put together big PowerPoints, big Gantt charts, and stay up all night practicing the perfect pitch – all to get a simple, disheartening response. There is a more effective way to get approval. The cost of delay You sell your ...
From a worker's perspective, an acceptable job would be one that pays a high wage, one that offers desirable benefits, and/or one that offers pleasant and safe working conditions.

Startup Professionals Musings: Six Artificial Barriers to Startup ...
A few months ago I had the privilege of meeting Dr. Roy McAlister, who has been a prolific inventor for thirty years, and a recognized authority on the use of hydrogen as the ‘fuel’ of the 21 st century. While he still remains upbeat, I can sense the frustration that comes from years of facing barriers to innovation. In his world, and many others that entrepreneurs inhabit, the problem is not a lack of ideas or technology. It’s not even a lack of money or opportunity, but a whole series of artificial constraints which seem to be getting more prevalent rather than less.

Product Validation and the Cost of Shortcuts
I counsel most clients to get through product testing on production units before promising delivery.  I’ve heard many times that delay would be too costly to allow, but the cost of rushing is almost always higher than the cost of delay. Often, rushing to market causes more delays than a more deliberate, measured approach.  Other times, the release is rushed with little apparent impact….until the product gets into the hands of consumers. I couldn’t have asked for a better example of the cost of rushing than Apple’s recent iPhone 4 release.  The phone can lose reception when held in the lower left corner.  ... market research, surveys and trends

Editorial - The Cost of Delay on a Rescue for Greece -
When the European Union and the International Monetary Fund first talked about a $60 billion rescue for Greece it looked as though that might be enough to calm Europe’s panicky markets. Then Germany dragged its feet, and investors raced to dump Greek bonds and bonds from the financially troubled Portugal and Spain.

Investors took comfort especially after the German government — which may or ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

How can I calculate the point of reorder, max inventory and min ...
You need to know lead time for receipt of goods, how long after order placed till you have it? You need to know what your turn is over a given time. How many units sold over what time. Plus display product used? That in consideration of quantity pricing breaks. Let's say you get 100 unit pricing. You turn 20 a week. It takes one week after order to get product.
