It recognizes that strategic planning is dynamic, that is, strategy-making involves a complex pattern of actions and reactions. It is partially planned and partially ...

People Management: How to Maximise Your People and Your Potential
Managing people is both easy and difficult. The easy part is knowing what to do; the difficult part is getting people to do it. Or, as one wise wag said “the problem with common sense is that it’s not very common.” Today, as the storm eases just a little, it’s imperative that you understand the role your people play in the future of your business. A storm quickly sorts out the good from the bad and pirates will be forever remembered. If you got through (or are getting through) the storm, it is for one reason alone: your people. Today, the game is up. Up for you and up for them. Like a boot camp, truth will out. Good people will ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

The Break-Even Point and The Break-Even Margin
The break-even point is defined as the point where sales or revenues equal expenses. There is no profit made or loss incurred at the break-even point. This figure is important for anyone that manages a business since the break-even point is the lower limit of profit when setting prices and determining margins. Obviously the break-even point becomes very important when calculating a strategy for net profit.  The break-even margin is a ratio that shows the gross-margin factor for a break-even condition. The formula is total expenses divided by net revenues multiplied by ...
