Acquisition of organizational learning

Acquisition of organizational learning

What are the tools of organizational learning? As I’ve stated in a previous blog post, a high performing organization needs a comprehensive approach to learning and a set of tools to facilitate learning. A training program, or an educational event, or even a CEO’s speech about the importance of learning is not enough. Continuous learning requires continuous learning interventions that encourage and facilitate knowledge acquisition and application to the workplace. An online leadership course is nice but it will have little to no effect if not integrated with a long-term learning…

There seems to be a never ending slew of articles in various publications of late highlighting the internationalization/expansion of one law firm or another. Given the patchy record many firms have had in internalization success, I thought the timing right to share an excerpt of a chapter on law firm expansion and internationalization from my recent book: Developing a Profitable Practice in Asia (Ark, 2010). Comments as always welcome. Winners and Losers in Internationalizing Professional Services Firms: Overall, much evidence shows that the degree of success a firm will have…

What Are Intangible Assets? The International Valuation Standards Committee defines intangible assets as “…assets that manifest themselves by their economic properties; they do not have physical substance, they grant rights and privileges to their owner; and usually generate income for their owner.  Intangible Assets can be categorized as arising from Rights, Relationships, Grouped Intangibles, or Intellectual Property .[i] Probably the briefest definition was provided by the FASB: …assets (not including financial assets) that lack physical substance.[ii] Per the FASB, intangible…

Digital technology has created a lot of hopes, but also a lot of problems, ” he noted. “As an electronic…

Explanation of financial capital

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has determined that Capital One marketed certain “add-ons” – fee-based services added to credit card accounts – in a way that violated federal law. As a result of enforcement action by the CFPB, Capital One agreed to automatically refund $140 million to 2 million Capital One customers. Capital One customers: If you’re eligible for a refund and you have an open account, the refund will be automatically credited to your account. If you’re eligible but no longer have an account with Capital One, a check will be mailed to you. You…

Financial capital acquitions

Anthony Gardner, himself a private-equity operator,  has crunched some numbers: 10 of roughly 67 major deals by Bain Capital during Romney’s watch produced about 70 percent of the firm’s profits. Four of those 10 deals, as well as others, later wound up in bankruptcy. Gardner then explains, using some of those big deals (including Ampad and GS Steel) as examples, how the asset-stripping operation worked: Bain would buy control of a company using a little money and a lot of debt, load up the target with still more debt, pay out big chunks of the loan proceeds to itself as fees…

This is a Guest Post by Randy Landreneau Hello Inventor, What I am about to tell you is almost too bizarre to believe. The influence of vested interests and the ignorance and/or complicity of politicians will do us in as inventors if we are not vigilant. If you have been getting these emails very long, you know how the passage of The America Invents Act was a blow to the independent inventor and to the ideal of innovation as envisioned by the Founding Fathers of this great nation (if you need information on this, let me know and I’ll send it directly). Wait till you see the…

Evaluation of relational capital

If you track back in time and watch closely how people interact with a particular brand identity , you’ll notice that they display similar behavioural traits in their relations with brands as they do in the way they engage with people. People’s interaction with brands is an emotional one, even if we don’t acknowledge it at the time. Long before we had logos or corporate identities to Photoshop onto a digital strategy, people’s personalities were the representation of a brand . This still exists to a degree today, but only in small, localised areas. Think about quaint country…

How to buy customer capital?

CFPB forces Capital One to rebate excess fees to credit card customers In a proof of concept one year after the standing up of the agency, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau announced an enforcement action that will give consumers a full refund on illegal credit card fees extracted by Capital One. The enforcement action, the first from the CFPB, accomplishes the rare feat of clawing back exactly the amount gained on the illegal action, plus interest, for all 2 million consumers affected. This sounds intuitive, but happens rarely in Washington. In fact, in this case, Capital…
