Most businesses make use of statistics to see what customers are doing, what customers might do and what's working for customers versus what isn't. But if you only ever see the statistical data at a glance and they aren't adding up, it could be that the data you're relying on is misleading you.  Data isn't always as reliable as we need it to be.  Here's how to know when business data or statistics are misleading – and why they could be throwing you off.  Spotting Lying Data  If the statistical data or reports you're seeing aren't matching up with what the rest of your business says in terms of returns or customers, it's likely ...

In any country, it is paramount to ensure that products are safe for consumers to use and/or ingest. In each region, a set of laws guides the production and distribution of goods. In each country, a regulatory framework is in place to regulate businesses that provide goods to clients.   Each business is obligated to ensure that its products are both safe and accessible. Safety is of utmost importance as any breach may lead to criminal prosecution, eventually leading a company to withdraw its product from the shelves.   Taking shortcuts when it comes to safety, is a risk and limits access to a product that consumers might rely on. So, how can ...

It's true as marketers we can hit dry spells and for some reason our creative brain cells seem to be sleeping. It doesn't matter what we do we just can't generate a new idea. It's frustrating, so what is one to do? I've found that when I run into this problem and I need to push through it I start a serious of actions that eventually give me the spark I need to being in the development of new ideas. I have also found that this is usually the time that I generate my best work by pushing through the mental block. I know in speaking with other colleagues I'm not the only one who goes through this, so I wanted to pull together the actions that I implement that help ...

Your firewall, antivirus, and log management tools are no longer enough to keep you safe. As of 2018, 85% of all companies allowed users to bring in their own devices for work. That means that they’re potentially doing work on devices with security solutions that you haven’t personally verified. In addition, seven out of ten employees work remotely at least once a week. In other words, they’re working in places that aren’t protected by your firewall – or any firewall at all, for that matter. When your employees work remotely using devices that they choose themselves, they may be more productive – but they’re certainly more vulnerable to attackers. ...

Operating an eCommerce business can be very rewarding, but building it can be pretty challenging. Product development, advertising, servicing customer needs; there’s a lot that needs to be attended to. While all of these elements are important, there’s one that may trump them all: order fulfillment ; after all, if you need to deliver the products your customers ordered in a timely manner – and make sure the right products are being delivered – otherwise all of the development and marketing you’ve invested in will be for naught, and you certainly won’t be able to meet the needs of your shoppers.  The bottom line is this: effective order fulfilment can ...

Corporate real estate can be commercial, retail, industrial or even residential. The purpose of corporate real estate assets is to meet the financial, functional and future flexibility needs of a business. Corporate real estate leaders today have to go beyond the traditional role which has been primarily financial. Given that real estate is usually one of the largest costs for an organization, the simplistic view that looks at reducing costs may seem like a solid approach. But a more strategic view takes into account other factors, such as the revenue-boosting potential of real estate. Determine goals What do you want to accomplish by buying corporate ...

In this video, Prof. S. Johnson presents the award-winning paper titled "Who Contributes Knowledge? Embeddedness and Marginality in Online Communities", which adresses the tension between the "community of practice" and the "open innovation" perspectives pertaining online community research. The contribution of the paper lies in the combination of the concepts of "epistemic marginality" from topic modeling and "network embeddedness" from social network analysis. To conduct their analysis, the authors rely on the entire participation dataset produced on the open platform Stack Exchanges from 2010 to 2016. Enjoy the video! Note: this video is part of ...

To Angelo Camillo: In my Org. Behavior class, I have the students break up into teams, choose a TED Talk on Leadership or Mgmt., & design a power point presentation to present to the class.  They are also required to strategize as to how they would implement the message of the TED Talk into an organization.  Hope this helps your request!
