Virtuous circle in management

One of the most time-consuming, tedious, stressful parts of life in these days of austerity for those in the health sciences is the process of finding research funding. As those who follow what I write about Science 2.0 and Medicine 2.0 (thank you for your patience, tiny audience!) know all too well I tend to mine examples from my work on the free grants and scholarship listing service ScanGrants when discussing such matters. I do this both calculatedly because I want people to use ScanGrants, but also because I think that I can draw fruitfully upon what I encounter as I look for funding opportunities in the sciences to ...
circle has detrimental results. A virtuous circle can transform into a vicious circle if eventual negative feedback is ignored. Both circles are complexes of events with no tendency towards equilibrium (at least in the short run). Both systems of events have feedback loops in which each iteration of the cycle reinforces the first ( positive feedback ). These cycles will continue in the direction of their momentum until an external factor intervenes and breaks the cycle. The prefix "hyper-" is sometimes used to describe these cycles. The most well known vicious circle is hyperinflation .

because it is one of several practices that is innovating as much as any of the well known large practices in the United States. Actually, there are many many more innovations happening in practices like this than people think, and as I have mentioned on here tons of times, they are all willing to teach, all we have to do is ask.

IMF Survey: Budget Reform Holds Promise in Mozambique
ince the end of its devastating civil war in 1992, Mozambique has undertaken wide-ranging structural reforms that have contributed to an average annual growth rate of 8 percent between 1996 and 2006. Indeed, its remarkable record of economic growth and structural reforms remains a model of successful post-conflict reconstruction. A cornerstone of the country's reform efforts has been the implementation of a far-reaching, donor-funded, public financial management reform program. Despite some setbacks, this program has progressed well, reflecting a virtuous circle of strong ownership on the part of the Mozambican authorities, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

The United States over the past 60 years succeeded in bringing large parts of the world into a liberal economic order, but our ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

According to Alan Williamson, a commodity strategist with 20 years of experience who now works at Galena Asset Management Ltd, a London and Geneva-based commodity funds house, recent weeks have seen a succession of weaker-than-expected data out of the US, leading to sharp downwards revisions to market expectations of growth in the second half of the year and through 2011. Last month’s disappointing non-farm payrolls data was followed by a poor advance estimate of GDP growth in the second quarter - GDP expanded at a quarter-on-quarter annualised rate of +2.4%, a figure which already looks likely to be revised lower due to a much ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Virtuous circle and vicious circle at AllExperts
there is an assumption that a complex system of determinants will tend to lead to a state of equilibrium. When this tendency is absent we use terms like virtuous circle and vicious circle (or virtuous cycle and vicious cycle) to describe these unstable pattern of events. Both circles are complexes of events with no tendency towards equilibrium (at least in the short run). Both systems of events have feedback loop s in which each iteration of the cycle reinforces the first ( positive feedback ). The difference between the two is that a virtuous cycle has favorable results and a vicious cycle has deleterious results. These ...
Correlation between Customer Loyalty and Market Ranking? (or ...
When it comes to measuring your customer's likelihood of staying with you, Customer Satisfaction is out, Customer Loyalty is in. However, digging through the Internet I've not been able to find information that correlated Customer Loyalty - much less Customer Satisfaction - to Profitability, Market Ranking or anything else. Strange - as hyped as Customer Loyalty is, I would think there is some substantiating evidence. Can anyone provide URLs to pages which have *hard data* to correlate Customer Loyalty to anything?
