These alternatives represent four primary decision making attitudes- Adventurer, Craftsperson, Victim and Bureaucrat- on an attitudinal continuum. (See Fig. 1) This post describes these primary attitudes and suggests how they affect ...
The PS/2 line, released to the public in 1987, was created by IBM in an attempt to recapture control of the PC market by introducing an advanced proprietary architecture. Although IBM's considerable market presence ensured the PS/2 would sell in relatively large numbers, the PS/2 architecture ultimately failed in its bid to return control of the PC market to IBM. Due to the higher costs of the closed architecture, customers preferred competing PCs that extended the existing PC architecture instead of abandoning it for something new. However, many of the PS/2's innovations, such as the 16550 UART , 1440 KB 3.5-inch ...

World needs to go Green, than Green needs to go LEED
In the past decade, the idea of building ‘green’ has sprouted globally – the so called ‘Green revolution’. As years passed by, one could see this revolution gradually turning into one of those temporary trends set up to support marketing of related fields of construction activity. Today, the term ‘green’ is certainly abused and misunderstood by most of the engineering empire. Truthfully, the natural living systems on our planet are the only designs we know of that are triumphant in their sustainability because they relate with the environment in holistic, integrative, and reductive processes. On the contrary, ... market research, surveys and trends

Internet trends: marketing research & predictions
Social media conversations can reflect peoples’ attitudes, needs, desires and intentions. The challenge is to listen wisely and use market research skills to “ask” the right questions. When you wish to follow perceptions and intents keep in mind that you will need to follow day to day jargon, and that the conversations traced are typical to the specific social network you are searching at. Currently, I find that there is no tool as Twitter to extract such knowledge and map real time reflection of peoples minds. While conducting many social media research projects, I have collected some insightful search ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Keen competition is expected for many jobs, particularly in large metropolitan areas, because of the large number of jobseekers attracted by the glamour of this industry. Job prospects will be best for applicants with a college degree in broadcasting, journalism, or a related field, and relevant experience, such as work at college radio and television stations or internships at professional stations. In this highly competitive industry, broadcasters are less willing to provide on-the-job training and instead seek candidates who can perform the job immediately. Many entry-level positions are at smaller broadcast stations; ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

Google Answers: Sales and marketing expenses in high tech companies
Hello, ragazzo-ga! You have asked a tough question about which information is not readily available. However, I have found one report which is right on target and provides a good overview of marketing spending as a percentage of total revenue. Aside from this article, I believe you would have to analyze a number of leading individual software companies in depth to see if you could come up with an industry average of your own. Since advertising spending is often lumped in with operating expenses, it would take a good amount of digging and analysis. MARKETING SPENDING AS A PERCENTAGE OF OVERALL REVENUE ...
