In traditional training, psychological impact of accident scenarios on operators is afforded in real-case situations without being tested in advance. JUST, therefore, addresses training of non-professional health emergency operators, by using advanced IT tools. The project R&D work aims to produce a Web/CD training ...
in order to direct its behavior toward a specific action. This practice is common to politics and business and can facilitate the approval or disapproval of or indifference to a person, policy, or product. The ethical use of crowd manipulation is debatable and depends on such factors as the intention of and the means used by the manipulator, as well as the ends achieved. Crowd manipulation differs from propaganda although they may reinforce one another to produce a desired result. If propaganda is “the consistent, enduring effort to create or shape events to influence the relations of the public to an enterprise, idea or group”, ...

   The extent to which a product can be used by specified users to achieve goals with effectiveness, efficiency and satisfaction in a context of use.

and the various ways the information can be shared with others.

Must links be blue for best usability?
And what about CSS-driven links like here on WW? Will many browsers fail to show them properly? On a site catering to other than webmasters, would you use something similar, or keep it more standard? Thanks for the ideas on this. btw, WebProNews just ran an article pushing the idea that blue underlining was essential. I think it depends upon the audience. If I'm writing for a library or a school or folks who rarely use the Inet then I'm more inclined to use standard blue underlined links (booaaaarrring). If, however, the audience is likely to be more experienced then I'll play with them. In either case, I'd ...
How do you define "gold-plating" in a project management context ...
The original PMBoK Guide included the phrase "meet or exceed stakeholder needs and expectations from a project" as part of the definition of project management.

And a related issue ... do you think a project manager should be trying to exceed any of ...
