Business is Simple until academics and consultants make it complicated

Business is Simple until academics and consultants make it complicated | news | Scoop.it

Business is Simple until academics and consultants make it complicated. That holds true for many organizations until they intend to take the next step and grow. This is when businesses become prey to consultants small and large, or owners and managers get lost while reading semi-academic self-help books and articles about business management. Eventually a team gathers to coin a strategy and in the best case they meander and discuss in more or less cumbersome ways how their organization should tackle future challenges. In most cases the result is people stumbling through a maze of unrelated business terms and coming up with fuzzy, warm, and meaningless strategies

Along The Cowboy Trail with the X-T1 | Olaf Sztaba

Along The Cowboy Trail with the X-T1 | Olaf Sztaba | news | Scoop.it

Despite visiting the Canadian Rockies on several occasions, we have never had a chance to drive south along the Cowboy Trail, highway #22. This time, however, we took this scenic drive and what a photographic treat it was! Driving south in the foothills, on our right the giant peaks of the Canadian Rockies rise from the plains. Beautiful clumps of trees and rolling grassy hills mixed with farmland create a spectacular sight.

Gear Notes: As usual we were equipped with the Fuji X-T1, the XF 14mm F2.8, XF 56mm F1.2 and Fuji X100S. It was enough to cover 99% of our needs. The X-T1’s viewfinder made a huge difference offering a wide clear view. Even when you are in such an extraordinary location, one should avoid “snapping fever” and focus on composition and light. It is much better to take just a few images, working hard on them before you press the shutter button..........

David Owen: Splashing the cash in the glory game

David Owen: Splashing the cash in the glory game | news | Scoop.it
Top football clubs are different to other businesses. Whereas most companies exist to generate wealth for their shareholders, football clubs must balance this against the pursuit of trophies.

Of course, the two aims are linked, or can be: mountains of silverware will increase a club's popularity, tending to make it more valuable and, hence, to enable its owners, should they so choose, to sell it at a profit.

But if a club's owner is a life-long fan, or if the glory game is judged more important than the profits game for other reasons, it can actually be rational for a club to splash the cash to the maximum extent possible or necessary without endangering the owner's long-term solvency.

Tom Daley has been voted the sexiest man in the world 2014.

 

The Olympic diver topped the HOT 100 list voted for by Attitude readers for the second consecutive year – having also won the inaugural Attitude HOT 100 poll last year.

 

“I just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who voted for me in Attitude’s HOT 100 – it means the world,” said Tom following the announcement at Attitude’s exclusive HOT 100 party in central London earlier tonight (July 16).

 

Tom Daley also appears on the cover of the latest issue of Attitude, which inside features a world exclusive interview with the 20-year-old Olympian.

 

In Daley’s first gay press interview he talks candidly about his decision to come out in a YouTube video last December, saying he hopes it “helped anyone going through something similar”.

 

The top ten in this year’s Attitude HOT 100 poll was also announced at tonight’s star-studded event, with Shayne Ward finishing second behind Daley and Zac Efron coming in third.

An entrepreneur devoted to a good idea is more likely to succeed than a hesitant entrepreneur with a great idea.

 

If you don’t feel comfortable enough to leave your “day job” to work on your own idea, you don’t really believe in it. To succeed, a new venture requires your full time effort. If you are unwilling, you don’t have enough faith in the concept or you don’t know enough about the concept to actually contribute to the success.
