Yielding the most money from selling your home, possibly the largest investment an individual will own, can be achieved by the realtor following a few procedures.

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…

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…

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.
