Branding for Modern Dynamic Products and Organizations

The need for a different method of Branding: The brand has a different meaning in today’s environment.

Problems of a Drunken Man

He stumbles in and can’t wait for the release. He’s been holding off for over an hour, but finally the tension builds too high. “I can’t get them loose.” He struggles, but the buttons won’t come open. He’s staggering around the bathroom in a drunken stupor. Considering asking someone for help, he notices that no one is at the urinals and no feet pop out from under the stalls. “What am I going to do now?” His blue jeans fit tightly over his legs and other body parts that might catch someone’s eye in some other situation. This and his not being able to feel his hands adds to his .. read more

Dream Travel

The happiest day of my life was the day I dropped him off in the parking lot outside the palace and drove away, watching his every move in the rear view mirror, watching him twitch and shudder against the shadows of the palace. He was fat. The night before we stayed up late and naked in bed with the windows open and listening to the barge horns echo off the bay. And before we made love I took him to the bathroom and shaved his privates. He sat on the toilet. I used a washcloth and wet him with warm water. Then shaving cream. The sharp cold razor across his .. read more

Dewelling on past, continues cycle of persecution

published July 3, 1996 Student Printz University of Southern Mississippi Imagine the following scenario: a nation is suffering from the consequences of a harsh military defeat aggravated by a severe economic depression. Within that nation, a minority historically persecuted throughout Europe has achieved a degree of assimilation that is virtually unprecedented anywhere else. But the harsh economic conditions within the country invite a young party struggling for political survival to revive an old collection of myths and stereotypes, all designed to scapegoat the financially successful minority for the majority’s problems. Every effort is made to undo the assimilation that has taken place, and to distinguish the minority from everyone else. .. read more

Day At The Beach

When Sol wasn’t playing with cumulus hid and seek, damsels scantily dressed in his sunshine sizzled, beach combing Casanovas over coals of hot sand tiptoed, palm trees fanned balmy breezes passing, children dabbled like throngs of seagulls shrieking, As fists of waves pounded swimmers to the shore.

Buddhist Story Illustrates Need for Discussion

At each stop, the would-be apprentice must engage in a philosophical parole with one of the established monks. At one such temple a monk was assigned the duty of engaging any passing acolytes. But since the temple was full, he was instructed to carry on only speechless dialogues admission. This particular monk had only one eye. No sooner had the one-eyed monk taken up his watch than a young acolyte – we shall call him Grasshopper .. read more

As I Sit

As I sit I think of what’s past What I have done throughout my days I know I can not make them last here’s a feeling for brighter and better ways.As I sit the t.v. sounds Someone like me living at home I think of home and its surrounds Now feeling how far I will roam. As I sit I remember the past road Its laughter and sorrow it’s meant I was told of the other road The one traveled by my parents. I will not take this road and its meaning I will follow my path with all my wits Learning from experience and all the teaching At the .. read more

Transformation of Leadership Annihilation of Leadership: Nietzsche’s Prospective

Presented International Leadership Conference International Leadership Association 14 November 2009 Introduction: Nihilism Explained Nihilism’s dimensions are much broader than the anarchy and destruction of Russia during Pisarev’s and Nechayev’s time. In the modern time nihilism has come to suggest a mood of despair, a sense of emptiness and meaninglessness, a feeling that life finally ends in the nothingness of death. It has also come to mean that moral norms cannot be validated, that relativism and subjectivism render all statements about truth suspect and untenable. In this sense nihilism is an attitude holding that traditional beliefs and values are not founded on any absolute or objective truth, that indeed there is .. read more

Requirements for Creating a Venture Capital Market: Lessons from the American Model

Jean Robert Hale Hunter Deuling Abstract In working with the Tanzanian Government and Investment Community, this paper seeks to help the parties to understand the core of the U.S. venture capital contracting model, and develops the extent to which the model provides guidance in engineering a venture capital market and, in particular, in identifying a viable role for government in assisting that project. All financial contracts respond to three central contracting problems: uncertainty, information asymmetry and opportunism in the form of agency costs. The special character of venture capital contracting is shaped by the fact that investing in early stage, high technology companies presents these problems in extreme. The genius of .. read more

Integral Entrepreneurial Leadership Builds a Better Idea

As companies seek more and better ideas, Integral Entrepreneurs have an opportunity to reinvent the innovation process and, by enabling people to collaborate, a integral part of the engine for growth. Innovation in traditional large organizations has always been treated like gold, hidden deep inside secret vault like labs and protected from everyone except the researchers and organizational executives. When products or services emerge from the labs after years of development and historically just one in a hundred emerge and moreover most of these products and services fail. Faced with this lack of productivity, along with increased competition and shrinking product life cycles, CEOs are no longer willing to rely .. read more
