Relational GPS: The Road Map to Outstanding Business Relationships “Instead of just wishing that better business contacts would magically appear in your professional life, drive the business contacts you’ve already established to more productive and rewarding levels. The initial step of pinpointing your core relationships will lead you toward participating with an actual person rather than with a digital line in a CRM system or on Linked In. A process, however, for driving your core relationships to success, is also vital. I call this process understanding your contact’s Relational…

How to buy corporate resources?

Alison Frankel yesterday discussed shareholder activism in an interesting blog post on Thomson Reuters. She references my concerns about the relationship between materiality and corporate political disclosure. For the interested, I’d like to expand on the concept. What do you mean by “materiality.” In this context, I’m referring to material facts. That is: a fact that would affect a reasonable shareholder’s financial decision to purchase, hold, or sell a particular stock. Specifically the stock of whatever company is being pressured to disclose additional activity. Why does…

Human capital reporting

In arguing for a human-capital reporting standard, CEO research director and professor John Boudreau writes that this complex issue requires a collaborative and cross-discipline approach between HR, corporate finance execs and investment professionals. He cites the efforts of scientists, scholars, and politicians of multiple countries during the 18th century who cooperated to take advantage of the transit of Venus in order to correctly determine the distance of the Earth from the Sun, which yielded tangible benefits related to timekeeping and measuring longitude. This was an…

How to evaluate intellectual capital?

In the classic business literature it is hard to find the clause about the competences and the value of know how in end results. Since ideally it is assumed that businesses are managed with high experienced managers and enterprise has/can get all competence assets any time. This makes our university level  business education much more easy, where with quantitative terms we can relate the inputs and outputs to each other.  Every business is a promise to earn more profit on current assets much more than other ones. That’s why one company can attract funds and another is challenged…

How to evaluate structural capital?

There are essentially two distinct basic strategies for startup entrepreneurs to raise a seed round of capital: Subscription approach – An entrepreneur sets a structure (usually a convertible note) and recruits individual angel investors who subscribe to the round, all without a term-driving lead investor. Term-driving investor approach – An entrepreneur finds a lead (quasi-)institutional venture investor to price and set the structure/dynamics of the round, working together to bring in additional syndicate partners (either/both other funds and individual angels). (Sometimes…

Organisational capital price determination

A guide to outsourcing FM services is provided by  RICHARD NEUMAN , partner at Relocation Management Solutions. British author, John Ruskin once said, “It is unwise to pay too much, but it is worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.” When the decision to outsource…

Intellectual capital explanation

David Glasner: I Figured Out What Scott Sumner Is Talking About « Uneasy Money: Paul Krugman and Simon Wren-Lewis pounced on this assertion, arguing that Ricardian equivalence actually reinforces the stimulative effect of government spending financed by taxes, because consumption smoothing implies that a temporary increase in taxation would cause current consumption to fall by less than would a permanent increase in taxation…. Now this response by Krugman and Wren-Lewis was just a bit opportunistic and disingenuous, the standard explanation for a balanced-budget multiplier equal…
