A group in itself does not necessarily constitute a team. Teams normally have members with complementary skills and generate synergy through a coordinated effort which allows each member to maximize his or her strengths and minimize his or her weaknesses. Thus teams of sports players can form (and re-form) to practice their craft. Transport logistics executives can select teams of horses , dogs or oxen for the purpose of conveying goods. Theorists in business in the late 20th century popularized the concept of constructing teams . Differing opinions exist on the efficacy of this new management fad . Some see "team" as a
How To Combat The Worldwide Skills Shortage
In the past decade, we have experienced a steady erosion of skills amongst people working in various industries, professions and businesses. This includes many large industries like chemicals, petrochemicals, oil refining and the like. This is a very provocative statement which will, no doubt be hotly contested by some people, but nevertheless it is true, like it or not. This is the reason why one often hears a cry amongst HR professionals, business leaders and management gurus of a “worldwide talent crunch”. A side effect of this skill erosion has been an increase in salaries and benefits in many companies to ... market research, surveys and trends
Avoid These Management Mistakes
This article is for those of you who have been recently promoted to manager or maybe have been managing for a while but have become a bit stale.

It also serves as a reminder that sometimes knowing what not to do is as important as knowing what is. Here’s a short list of mistakes managers can make that will derail their efforts to move their organizations forward. In my opinion, this is the number one mistake managers make. Those of us ... market research, surveys and trends


Our 10 Most Enduring Ideas
has been a magazine dedicated to the value and power of ideas. It has embodied the view that, as Victor Hugo once put it, “An invasion of armies can be resisted, but not an idea whose time has come.” We like to think that our readers are real-world users of ideas, pragmatists who understand that a conceptual breakthrough can make enormous day-to-day difference. Thus, for our 10th-anniversary issue, we took the question head-on: Of all the ideas strategy+business has covered, which are most likely to endure for (at least) another 10 years? After reviewing the magazine’s back issues (all available free on our Web ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Profitability through Simplicity
Pharmaceutical, Specialty and Fine Chemicals and Coating process and manufacturing technologies have to be simple to have the best possible process.

Tuesday Morning Quarterback begins his annual NFL preview by breaking down the AFC
The National Football League is all about running the ball, right? That's what you hear. Yet for two consecutive seasons, the last-ranked rushing team made the Super Bowl -- Arizona in 2008 and Indianapolis in 2009 reached the ultimate game despite having the league's worst rushing offense those seasons. True, both lost, but 30 of the 32 NFL franchises gladly would have traded places with the team that lost the Super Bowl. And last season, the AFC's two best teams, winning the first-round byes -- San Diego and Indianapolis -- were 31st and 32nd overall, respectively, in rushing. Thus you don't have to run the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

For a drinking water system to qualify for filtration avoidance under the Surface Water Treatment Rule (SWTR) the system cannot be the source of a waterborne disease outbreak, must meet source water quality limits for coliform and turbidity and meet coliform and total trihalomethane MCLs. Disinfectant residual levels and redundant disinfection capability must also be maintained. Filtration avoidance also requires that a watershed control program be implemented to minimize microbial contamination of the source water. This program must characterize the watershed’s hydrology, physical features, land use, source water ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
Birnbaum, Robert. (2000). Management fads in higher education ...
traces the history of seven management fads in American higher education to develop a compelling model of the fad process and the transmission of fads to higher education. Subsequently, he posits characteristics and factors that make institutions vulnerable to fads and suggests why managers implement them. Finally, Birnbaum examines the legacy of fads in higher education. Underlying this cathartic book is Birnbaum's belief that the techniques and technologies we use are not neutral but rather embody particular ideological beliefs. Management fads are the widespread, zealous and blessedly short-lived application ...

The Mindset of Job Security Can Be Killing Your Best Resource
When it comes to managing knowledge, learning from past mistakes, and capitalizing on the hidden knowledge and the wisdom of people, organizations historically have not done that well. Instead of building human portals and mediums that connect and unite people, and creating safe environments that allow people to share freely what they know, more attention is given to building large database systems and other mediums that capture human knowledge. This difficult, yet important task of building a knowledge-sharing culture within companies is primarily given to the Information Technology departments, by far the least ...
