Human capital explanation

As promised here is my blog on Micro Theories. In my previous blog I defined micro theories as theories that attempt to explain specific social phenomenon in a broader social system. There are many micro theories developed by prominent researchers identifying social phenomenon. Few prominent theories are as follows: STRENGTH OF WEAK TIES Granovetter(1973) asserts that acquaintances (weak ties) are less likely to be socially involved with one another than close friends (strong ties). Thus the set of people made up of any individual and his or her acquaintances comprises a low-density…

What is organizational learning?

What is organizational learning?

As we continue our discussion of exemplars of Learning Organizations, I am finding a common thread. These organizations tend to be innovative. They ask themselves, “What can we do to be more effective, more efficient, more customer focused…” Then they act on it, they take responsibility and act on it. It seems too that they have the authority to do so. I think that a lot of us have wonderful, creative ideas, however, there is no authority from uppermanagement to the line staff to take action. We do not feel empowered. I once went to a roundtable discussion that had nothing to…

Acquisition of intellectual company

The recent acquisition of M-Audio paints a larger picture of the audio industry. On July 2nd, when Avid announced that it was selling off multiple audio and video product lines, it was easy to miss the big picture. More Avid layoffs accompanied the news, and many people focused on the negative as Pro Tools users fretted about the future of their long-familiar DAW and I/O hardware provider. But there’s two sides to every story, and the positive angle was that the respected M-Audio product line, along with the less-visible AIR Software Group, had a welcoming new home: Rhode Island-based…

Explain software code

Explain software code

The first time I used the mobile barcode known as a QR Code, I was disappointed. The code was for a product at a local retailer. Instead of an offer, a list of innovative uses, or even product instructions, I was taken to a screen to register for their newsletter. Why would I register for their newsletter when I wasn’t even sure I liked their product yet? I didn’t register.   I tried a few other codes that I found in magazines, at coffee shops and even from direct mailings. Not one of them impressed me. In fact, they were such a disappointment I disregarded QR codes as something…

What is software code?

The thought that everyone should learn to write software is gaining steam. Even New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg promised to learn to code this year. (It’s unclear if he’s followed through, but Bloomberg was a computer science major so he probably still knows his way around a keyboard.) The thinking is that if all the people who use software actually understand how to build software, everyone’s better off. FreeCause, a Boston-based arm of Rakuten, a Japanese e-commerce company, is teaching all 60 employees JavaScript as part of an effort to narrow the tech divide, according…

Pleasant, SC) – BeerPulse caught up with Total Beverage Solution CEO, Dave Pardus, on Monday after the company’s just-announced acquisition of the Nectar Ales brand family from Firestone Walker Brewing.

Bill Cohan is the latest columnist to wonder how on earth Mitt Romney’s retirement account got so incredibly large — as much as $102 million — given the limits on the amount of money employees can put in such things each year. Nicholas Shaxson asked similar questions in Vanity Fair this month, and both of them cited the work of the WSJ’s Mark Maremont to help explain what might be going on; Cohan might want to update his link, since the Maremont article he links to is not the one with the real juice. Maremont explains that when Bain bought a company, it wouldn’t just create…

Definition of human capital

“Injustice is censured because the censures are afraid of suffering, and not from any fear which they have of doing injustice. – Plato (Classical Greek philosopher) In economics, human capital is defined as a concept designated to describe the skills, knowledge, and experience possessed by an individual or population, viewed in terms of their value or cost to an organization or country. If we breakdown the definition of human capital and put it into perspective at a global scale, you’ll understand that we have undervalued the meaning of life by putting labor gain, profit, revenue…

Financial capital evaluation

69 pages | Dec 33, 3116 |ISBN:1961339 | PDF | 9 Mb[/center] Summary: The requirement to maximise value for shareholders is at the core of any corporate investment or financing decision. The intrinsic value of proposed investments should be assessed before deciding how much capital to allocate; the benefits and risks associated with each available source of finance should be considered when capital is being raised; and capital, and any associated financial risks, should be managed in a way that continues to maximise value.[cut] At every stage, an analysis should be carried out…

Valuating corporate capital

It was in response to customer concerns over increasing materialism, so the story goes, that credit card company Mastercard launched its long-running ‘Priceless’ advertising campaign in 1997. Across radio, TV and printed media, the catchphrase was repeated, drummed into our heads; “There are some things money can’t buy. For everything else, there’s MasterCard.” The campaign was hugely successful – and widely parodied. Clearly it struck a chord. How to value ‘stuff’ has been challenging economists since Malthus. Are things really ‘priceless’, as Mastercard proclaims, or can we…

How to evaluate goodwill?

Big Challenges To Securing A Business Acquisition Loan Qualifying to get a little company acquisition loan might be pretty an ordeal to say the least. If the business being sold is really profitable, the promoting price will most likely reflect an important amount of goodwill which can be pretty hard to finance. If the small business getting sold is just not producing income, lenders could be hard to find even if the underlying assets becoming acquired are worth substantially far more than the obtain price tag. Organization acquisition loans, or change of control financing situations…

→Download International Revision of the Guidelines for Examination in the European Patent Office (EPO) The Guidelines for Examination in the EPO have undergone some revisions. Hence, the new Guidelines entered into force on 20 June 2012. Some of the reasons why the restructured version is much better are the following: (1) they are more in line with the PCT Guidelines in that they clearly separate substantive issues and procedural aspects, (2) they ensure greater transparency and legal certainty as the inclusion of parts of the Internal Instructions will allow examiners to refer…
