If you are a boss at any level, this blog will give you insight, information, and pointers to resources to do a better job and live a better life. I was raised in a family where spirited discussions were common. Sometimes when we were in the middle of a good debate, my mother would break in with one of her classic lines. "It's a fact," she would remind us, "We don't have to argue about it. We can look it up." At that point we'd get up from the dinner table and begin pulling out reference books. We might call the library (you could do that then) or call a family friend who would know the answer ...

Major parties pay the price for lack of courage on big issues
The most boring election campaign in living memory has delivered the most interesting election result since World War II. While the major parties, and many of the commentators, are struggling to figure out what it all means, the result is actually quite simple to interpret. Australia's voters do not think that either the ALP or the Coalition deserve a mandate to form a government in their own right. In 2007, the ALP primary vote was 43.4 per cent while on Saturday it fell to 38.5. The 4.9 per cent swing against Labor translates into 494,000 fewer votes. That's a lot of unhappy Australians. But despite the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Evidence-based management
The past 20 years have seen intensive development of new models for organization and management in industry and health care. Many observers believe, however, that popular trends and fads have guided this development more than research on organizations and management practices.
