I argued that turbulent markets demand portfolio agility–an organization’s capacity to reallocate cash, people, and other resources from stagnant or declining businesses into promising opportunities, and do so in a timely manner. Effective portfolio agility consists of both investment and disinvestment. Unfortunately, most companies are better at getting into new businesses than they are at getting out of declining subsidiaries or ones that no longer fit as the corporate strategy evolves.

How NICE guidance is helping the NHS through financial uncertainty
With the current financial situation in the UK set to result in challenging times for the NHS, the role of NICE will become ever more important. As NHS service providers look to balance budgets, NICE guidance will continue to play its part through ensuring quality care for patients whilst making sure service providers are aware of how they can best spend their limited resources. In fact NICE has been identifying aspects of clinical practice that PCTs can spend less on ever since it was set up 10 years ago - our guidance to the NHS contains around 150 such recommendations each year, across all our guidance programmes. ... market research, surveys and trends


Voucher Privatization with Investment Funds: A Sure Way to ...
There has been rough consensus among postsocialist reformers and their Western advisers that voucher privatization was the quickest and most politically popular technique for achieving mass privatization.

Does preparation for expansion differ by the methods (PE funding ...
We are at a stage where we are looking for variety of options for expansion and not sure what is right for us. A little background about us is, we are 3 years old self funded company. We have not got back our investment yet, but we do not need any fund if we have to run at the present scale. Revenue keeps coming in and we make reasonable profits.
